Mohammed Shami, the Indian fast bowler, has been a witness to turbulences following allegations from wife Hasin Jahan. The situation has worsened as the case has progressed. His career, undoubtedly, is in the doldrums as he awaits the result of the investigations. Meanwhile, another cricketer is set to face the wrath of the legal system.
Hardik Pandya, the swashbuckling all-rounder, got himself tangled in a controversy. The Baroda cricketer dropped a tweet on BR Ambedkar, which enraged the people of his community as it hurt their sentiments. He deleted the tweet thereafter, however, the post had already gone viral by then and was greeted with severe criticisms.
Here is the message on the deleted tweet
“Which Ambedkar ??? The one who drafted a cross law and constitution or the one who spread the disease called reservation in the country,”
Recently, a court in Jodhpur, Rajasthan has ordered the police to file an investigation report against the Indian cricketer for the alleged comment as per reports in NDTV. Meanwhile, Rajesh Yadav, a Station House Officer, commented on the issue updated about the developments and progress surrounding the case. The Mumbai Indians player has been booked under a law on the Schedule Tribes and Schedule Castes.
“We are yet to receive the orders of the court and once we get it, I will be in a position to comment,” Rajesh Yadav, SHO of Udai Mandir Thana in Jaipur told NDTV. Mr Yadav also said, “further action will be taken as per the law.”
Pandya has reportedly been accused of sharing the tweet on December 26 after which Mr DR Meghwal raised a petition. He also mentioned that such comments by a reputed personality is derogatory and doesn’t set the appropriate example for the upcoming generations.
