In an utterly shocking report, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s 10-month daughter is getting rape threats because Kohli supported his Muslim teammate Mohammad Shami against attacks.
Shami was heavily criticized on social media after Pakistan hammered India in the World T20 match on Oct 24 in Dubai. Shami was unnecessarily blamed for not performing well — the allegation outrightly rejected by Kohli and others.
Now, according to Twitter user Andre Borges, “Kohli and Anushka’s 10-month-old daughter is getting rape threats because he decided to stand by his Muslim teammate, call out bigotry, and say discrimination on the basis of religion is wrong.”
He tweeted that “It’s disgusting to think that absolutely nothing will happen to these IT cell armies, trolls and faceless avatars for hate. There have barely been consequences in the past, no reason to think that anything will be done now.”
Virat and Anuhska tied the knot in December 2017 in a private ceremony in Italy.
Anushka had given birth to a baby girl at Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital on January 11, 2021 (Monday afternoon).
Taking to social media, proud father Virat had announced the happy news and wrote, “We are thrilled to share with you that we’ve been blessed with a baby girl this afternoon. We thank you all for your love, prayers, and good wishes. Anushka and the baby are both healthy and we are feeling beyond blessed to start this new chapter of our lives. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Love, Virat (sic).”
