The Indian government had a very big diplomatic win when the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decided to stay on the execution of former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav. Indian cricketers, Mohammad Kaif and Virender Sehwag in particular, were quick to congratulate India on the diplomatic win. Earlier, the Pakistan government had ordered the execution of Jadhav citing that he was an Indian spy.

However, the Indian government claimed that Kulbhushan was not a spy and hence he should not be executed. Also, they questioned on how the Pakistan government can execute an Indian citizen. This prompted India to move to ICJ. Much to the delight of the Indian fans and the family of Kulbhushan, the ICJ ruled the decision in his favor and asked Pakistan government to stay until the ICJ conducts its trials.

Heart of the matter

Mohammad Kaif did not take much time and expressed his happiness on the issue. He posted a message on the social media site Twitter congratulating India for their moral win. He wrote, “Congratulations India. Thanks to the International Court of Justice , justice has prevailed. #KulbhushanJadhav.”

The tweet perhaps did not go down too well with one a few people. One such person tried to troll Mohammad Kaif and asked him to drop ‘Mohammad’ from his name. He certainly made the baseless remark on the grounds of religion. The troll wrote, “Please remove Mohammad from your name first !”

The troll, named Aamir Akram, found a fitting and a shutting reply from the former Indian cricketer. Kaif was quick to respond back saying that if he is celebrating India’s victory then it has nothing to do with his name. Also, he noted that the name Aamir means ‘full of life’ and hence the troll should rather get a life than to comment such baseless trolls.

Mohammad Kaif wrote, “Wow ! If I support India’s victory , I should remove Mohammad. I am proud of my name. Aamir means “full of life” , you need to get one.”
