‘Islamophobic writer’ Taslima Nasreen slammed for ‘disgusting’ tweet against cricketer Moeen Ali

‘Islamophobic writer’ Taslima Nasreen has come under severe criticism after she posted a hateful tweet about an international cricketer Moeen Ali.

The author, who is known for her open criticism of Islam, took to Twitter and wrote: “If Moeen Ali were not stuck with cricket, he would have gone to Syria to join ISIS”.

After having deleted the tweet, the author took to Twitter again to issue a clarification. She claimed that her remarks were sarcastic and that an issue was made about her tweets to “humiliate her” because she tries to make “Muslim society more secular.”

The author’s tweet came in the wake of several reports stating that Moeen Ali, who is playing for Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming IPL, asked for the logo of an alcohol brand to be removed from his jersey.

The now-deleted tweet received a lot of backlash from people including cricketers calling her tweet “disgusting” and advising her to delete it.

England’s fast bowler Jofra Archer, batsman Sam Billings and Saqib Mahmood were among those who tore into the author’s offensive post.

Moeen Ali is currently in India, preparing for IPL 2021 where he will be representing Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The all-rounder has represented his national team in all three formats. He has played 61 Tests, 109 ODIs and 34 T20Is for the England national team.
