Mumbai: Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh's presence on social media is very well known. The cricketer has a very different avatar when he is on social media. Not only the cricketer has had run-ins on his opponents when being on field, he also has voiced his opinion on news that makes headlines.
This time around the cricketer had run-in on IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt after he tweeted raising questions on lack of Muslim representation in the Indian cricket team.
क्या इस समय भारतीय क्रिकेट टीम में कोई मुस्लिम खिलाड़ी है ?
आज़ादी से आज तक ऐसा कितनी बार हुआ कि भारत की क्रिकेट... https://t.co/Nb6ufi71qX— Sanjiv Bhatt (IPS) (@sanjivbhatt) October 22, 2017
The former IPS officer tweeted “"Is there a single muslim player in the current Indian cricket team. Since independence of India, how many times has this happened? Have the muslims stopped playing cricket or have the selectors begun following someone else's rule?"
हिंदू मुस्लिम सिख ईसाई आपस में है भाई। क्रिकेट टीम में खेलने वाला हर खिलाड़ी हिंदुस्तानी है उसकी जात या रंग की बात नहीं होनी चाहिए (जय भारत) https://t.co/UVvSHaLJdY— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) October 23, 2017
The veteran spinner couldn’t let go off the tweet and sent an epic reply to the IPS officer. He tweeted "Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or Christian - all the players of the Indian cricket team are Indians first. The team shouldn't be segregated on the basis of colour, creed or caste".
Harbhajan Singh is currently playing domestic cricket after his ouster from the national side. The Turbanator hopes to make a comeback into the national side before retiring from cricket....
