new Delhi: Former Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan recently came into the limelight when he came out in defense of American pop star Riana on the farmers movement issue. Now once again, a tweet by Irfan Pathan is in the discussion, through which he has targeted the media. Irfan Pathan posted a tweet on Friday, in which he took a dig at the media and wrote, ‘No caption needed’. Earlier, Pathan wrote on Twitter defending Riana, “Our country expressed grief over this incident when a policeman in America was brutally murdered by George Floyd.” I am just saying this. Irfan is trying to say in gestures that when we can talk about the internal affairs of a country, why the ruckus on Riana’s tweet?
Let me tell you that in the US last year, black George Floyd died in police custody, after which there was a terrible panic. Following George’s death, violent protests erupted across America, arresting over four thousand people. When police caught black George Floyd on May 25, he said that he was having trouble breathing. He died in police custody. Later this video went viral on social media. After the tweet of American pop star Riyana, many cricket giants of India had spoken about India’s solidarity, but in contrast, former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan had a different tone.
32-year-old American pop star Riana took the side of the farmers by sharing the news of a news website on 2 February when the internet was shut down in several districts of Delhi’s neighboring state of Haryana. Riana wrote, ‘Why are we not talking about this?’ Along with this, he also recorded #FarmersProtest in his tweet, after which there was a lot of ruckus and many of India’s legendary cricketers called it India’s internal matter. Before Irfan, IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad pacer Sandeep Sharma tweeted supporting Rihanna, but later deleted it.
