On December 23, Shami posted a picture along with his wife after which he was viciously trolled, with some even abusing him for the outfit of his wife.
Shami was reminded of his religion, with some even asking why his wife was not wearing a hijab.
She quoted a tweet in which a twitter user posted an article which was about Bajrang dal showing dress code concerns.
As soon as she tweeted, twitter users enquired about the article and it was found to be 6 years old article.
Agree and hope all those who stood up against the muck Shami endured will stand up against this as well. https://t.co/7WwFqjVrkf
