England pacer Jofra Archer lashed out at Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen for her controversial tweet on all-rounder Moeen Ali.
Taslima, identified for her writing on ladies’s oppression, on Tuesday took to Twitter writing, “If Moeen Ali weren’t caught with cricket, he would have gone to Syria to hitch ISIS.”
Twitter quickly got here in help of the cricketer, criticising the author. Archer joined the bandwagon replying “Are you okay? I don’t suppose you’re okay.”
Fellow England cricketer Sam Billings too responded saying, “Please everybody report taslimas account! Disgusting!” whereas Saqib Mahmood wrote, “Can’t imagine this. Disgusting tweet. Disgusting particular person.”
Nasreen later deleted her tweet and defended her put up saying that she was solely being sarcastic.
“Haters know very properly that my Moeen Ali tweet was sarcastic. However they made that a difficulty to humiliate me as a result of I attempt to secularize Muslim society & I oppose Islamic fanaticism. One of many best tragedies of humankind is pro-women leftists help anti-women Islamists,” Nasreen later tweeted.
Archer as soon as once more responded saying, “Sarcastic? Nobody is laughing, not even your self, the least you are able to do is delete the tweet.”
Moeen will function within the impending IPL 2021 season, the place he might be taking part in for Chennai Tremendous Kings. The franchise had roped him in for INR 7 crore within the February public sale.
Notably, Moeen had reportedly requested CSK to take away the emblem of an alcohol model from their jersey, however franchise CEO Kasi Vishwanathan had later squashed the rumours, clarifying that no such request was made.
