As the entire country thanked the healthcare workers and servicemen who are sticking their neck out amidst the coronavirus outbreak, many celebrities, too, joined in. Cricketer Mohammad Kaif along with his family came to the balcony at 5 PM and joined the nation.
He was attacked by rabid Islamists who accused him of forgetting his roots after having earned so much money. One Islamist also attacked Kaif’s wife and questioned him whether she has not heard of Fatima Zahra, youngest daughter of Prophet Mohammad and one of his wives, Khadija.

He was also asked to recite namaaz to fight coronavirus.
Namaz padho tali or thali se kuch nahi hoga— Abdul Hafeez Farooqui (@farooqui_hafeez) March 22, 2020
One SK Mojaffar had a complete meltdown and said that clapping is the work of ‘beggars’ and not someone like Kaif and continued to give moral lessons to Kaif.
The hate continued on Instagram, too, where Kaif had shared the video.
On Thursday, in his address to nation, PM Modi had urged Indians to stay at home on Sunday and have a 14-hour Janta curfew. He had urged people to come to the balconies at 5 PM to thank the healthcare workers by clapping in appreciation while maintaining social distancing.
