Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan has been trolled recently for unnecessary reasons. First, for posting a picture with Safa Baig, which was termed by trolls as un-Islamic and more recently for celebrating Raksha Bandhan,
Responding to the controversy, Pathan has said that he sees no point in responding to such trolls.
"I always believe there are lots of friends and fans who love and respect me and that is the most important thing for me. There are always going to be haters. There are always going to be some people who will say negative about you. And my reaction is not for them. I don't even tag them when I reply to them because I don't want to give anything to them. I will always react with love,” Pathan was quoted as saying in an ANI report.
"I always manage social media very carefully. You need to be careful because there are a lot of fake accounts. Using those fake accounts, there are lots of people who say things which they cannot say from their own profile. And yes, there are people with real accounts as well and they express their opinions in terms of talking negative about certain things'' he further said in the ANI story.
He also said that he makes sure he keeps his point forward with dignity.
"I always make sure I keep my dignity and I don't go overboard. I don't use foul language. I make sure if I want to send my message across, I do it with dignity and with strong words I do it. I don't go there and clarify all the times because it's not required. If you know you are doing the right thing, you do what you believe in and as well as I am happy, I am not too bothered about it,” he further stated.
