Former Pakistani cricketers and journalist attacked by Islamists for cutting cake during Ramzan

Former Pakistani cricketers Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram and their nation’s journalist Zaina Abbas faced the ire of twitter Islamists after they cut a cake to celebrate Akram’s birthday. This act irked the trolls as it was executed within the fasting hours of the ongoing month of Ramzan.

As per a Pakistan Today report, the issue began when the journalist shared the pictures of the cake cutting ceremony via her twitter account, while acknowledging Pakistan’s misery during their ongoing series with England:

The misery though soon extended to the subjects of the tweet, as they were targeted by fundamentalists for disrespecting Ramzan:

One even made sexist remarks against the journalist:

The attack though seems to have got to Younis, who on Monday apologised for not respecting Ramzan and to those who had kept a fast:

Incidentally just a few days ago another such attack was carried out on actor Aamir Khan for playing with his daughter and posting pictures of food during Ramzan. This included making distasteful comments under the posts, including calling them obscene.
