Hindutva Troll Issues Rape Threat to Virat Kohli’s Daughter


T20 WC: Kohli slams abuse over Shami, says attacking someone over their religion is pathetic

Clarion India

NEW DELHI – Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli faced hateful trolling after he recently denounced the abuses hurled against his Muslim teammate Mohammed Shami following India’s defeat to Pakistan.

Calling the haters ‘spineless’ people, Kohli said that attacking someone over their religion is ‘the most pathetic thing that a human being can do’.

Ever since he made the statement denouncing communal abuses, Kohli has been at the receiving end of hateful trolling on Twitter by Hindutva trolls on social media. Some are even issuing rape threats to his 10-month-old daughter, Vamika.

On the other hand, some Hindutva groups claimed that the account that has openly threatened Kohli’s daughter is of a Pakistani.

However, fact-checker and Co-founder of Alt News, Mohammed Zubair confirmed that the Twitter user who goes by username ‘@Criccrazygirl’ is a Hindutva troll from Hyderabad.

He tweeted, “Lol nice try to distance yourself. The account @Criccrazyygirl is not from Pakistan but a Right Wing troll from Hyderabad. His earlier accounts were : @Criccrazyygirl, @ramanheist & @pellikuturuhere. Here, unique ‘data-user-id’ (1386685474182369290) is same for all 3 accounts”.

The Twitter account of the abuser has now been deleted and shows ‘unavailable’ on the micro-blogging site.

People on social media have condemned such a disgusting act and are even coming out in support of Virat Kohli. Many are even requesting the Hyderabad city police to take action against the abuser.

One social media user tweeted, “also tagging @CPHydCity @TelanganaDGP @hydcitypolice @KTRTRS @KTRoffice Sir, as pointed by @zoo_bear a fake user from HYD @Criccrazyygirl is threatening to rape Indian Captain @imVkohli daughter(10 month old). Please take action against the potential “pedophilia” if true.”

After India’s defeat in ICC Men’s World Cup 2021 against Pakistan, Mohammad Shami was abused and trolled brutally on social media platforms. Hundreds of messages were left on Shami’s Instagram account saying he was a “traitor” and should be thrown out of the Indian team.

Scores of people including Shami’s fans and even Virat Kohli condemned the abuse and backed the bowler. In his statement, Virat said, “There is a good reason why we are playing on the field and not some bunch of spineless people on social media that have no courage to actually speak to any individual in person.”

“This is the lowest level of human form, attacking someone over religion is the most pathetic thing human being can do. Never thought of discriminating on basis of religion. That is a very sacred and a personal thing and that should be left there. Our brotherhood and friendship can’t be shaken… and these things can’t infiltrate. I give credit to people who understand us,” he added.
