Today a cricketer’s wife tomorrow it can be you .

The hateful attack on cricketer Shami for posting his wife’s pictures on social media is shameful but only reflects the misogynistic views of ordinary people.
Many under the cover of religion displayed blatant patriarchy, advising the cricketer about how a woman should be dressed based on her religion while others were quick to question the cricketer’s belief in his faith.
Surprisingly all the comments were directed at the cricketer and not at his wife, again displaying the mindset that ‘men are responsible for what a woman can or cannot wear.’ A woman is a man’s property and hence it is the man who can decide about what she is allowed to wear and is answerable to society if it feels she has crossed the line.
