When Indian cricketer Suresh Raina posted a line on his social media pages in support of Kanhaiya Kumar, he wouldn’t have expected such an outburst from the people on Twitter.

His post “kanhaiya on @ndtv right now… Beauty!!! Can just feel the honesty in every word..Respect himtrue fighter and honest man salute you”, drove people nuts on both Facebook and Twitter.

He was called everything from a Pakistani to an anti-national, and was told to do degrading things to his mother and sister.

People also asked him to take a leaf out of Sachin Tendulkar’s book and questioned if Sachin had ever spoken about political issues. This was from a doctor.

Then there was also this guy who said Raina’s failure against quality bowling led him to becoming a Communist supporter.

He was even called a traitor, Kashmiri and tweeting for “cheap publicity”.

On Facebook he was asked, “r u really Suresh raina… or ur bhatija posted it….vry poor…he is traitor ..antinationalist & he is on bail and u r supporting him…disappointed..” The post has got about 24,000 likes, and more than 1250 ‘angry’ reactions.

The tweet has been deleted but the post on Facebook along with the comments accompanying it, remains. On Facebook he has got a couple of positive comments with one being, “my respect for you has increased. It takes great courage for a celebrity to risk his reputation and say what he feels. Don’t bother about pseudo patriots abusing you. More strength to you. Keep making India proud on and off the field.”

It’s a sad day indeed when an individual can’t even praise another country man. We hope Suresh Raina plays an important role in India’s T20 World Cup campaign. Maybe that will the mouths of these idiots who call themselves sports fans.
