Sarfraz Ahmed

Pakistani cricket fans have been highly disappointed after the team’s performance in last week’s India-Pakistan match at the ICC World Cup.

Social media has been flooding with feedback, however, some people hit a whole new level of low by crossing all limits by abusing, stalking and harassing the players.

A video started making rounds on social media featuring Pakistani cricket captain Sarfaraz Ahmed at a shopping mall in the UK being verbally attacked, stalked and filmed by a man.

What’s even worse is that Sarfaraz was accompanied by his child at the time.

“Why are you so fat, like a pig?” the man can be heard saying.

Celebrities from both Pakistan and India have extended support to the Pakistani captain criticizing the abuser for disrespecting his privacy and portraying unethical behavior.
Ali Zafar requested Pakistan to send only positivity.

“Every captain in history has lost an important match. #SarfarazAhmed doesn’t deserve this,” wrote Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh.

“This is getting absurd to the core of its existence.” Bollywood actor Sawera shared her disgust.

“If I were #SarfarazAhmed I’d have broken the boy’s phone and called his family over,” shared Wasim Akram.

“He’s undr great pressure becz of grouping in team & the disgusting trolling,” wrote Veena Maik.

“Disgraceful behaviour by this obnoxious who clearly needs better parenting,” tweeted Reham Khan.

“This man should be punished if there is any verbal abuse law in England,” shared fellow cricketer Kamran Akmal.

After receiving severe backlash, the man who recorded it released a video message apologizing for his behavior. He stated that he had deleted the video and that he didn’t know how it had spread online.
