You know the criticism Mohammed Shami faced online when he posted a picture of his wife. The Islamists tried to teach the ace Indian cricketer how to dress up his wife like a “true Muslim”. Of course, Sami gave a perfect response winning the hearts of all, including fellow Muslims.
But did you know that Sami was not the only one getting home-schooled in how to be a good Muslim?
That ‘not a good Muslim’ tag was also placed on Mir Afsar Ali, the most popular RJ and VJ in West Bengal, and Shah Faesal, the IAS officer from Kashmir, on Christmas Day.
Mir, the host of one of the most popular shows, ‘Mirakkel’, posted a Christmas greeting on his Facebook page with his wife and daughter on December 25. That post was liked by thousands and he also received warm return greetings.
But there were many comments in which some Muslims advised him that it is un-Islamic to greet anyone a Merry Christmas. Now Mir is not the one against whom you can win a battle of wits, words, and wisdom!
In his own quintessential style, Mir trolled everyone who tried teaching him how to be a good Muslim.
Had a great Christmas this year… well almost..
Posted a pic of my family on my official page this morning wishing everyone on this very special day…Advertisement

But that’s NOT what this post is about.. 😊
It is about a few morons who started giving me advice on why a MUSLIM should not be ‘celebrating’/’wishing’ on Christmas…
I was advised by one to seek forgiveness from the almighty Allah..
I was told by another that this certainly was very unsuitable for a person who’s religion is Islam..
(screenshots attached of 3 such imbeciles; there are many more that I had to delete/block for obvious reasons)
NO… I am NOT angry.
I am not even retaliating.
I am just thoroughly amused at the state of affairs all around.
I sadly realise where we stand today..
I realise that tomorrow if I wish to donate something to The Missionaries of Charity or Ramkrishna Mission, I will most certainly be criticised by some fellow Muslims…
“Arrreee… Tauba! Tauba! Aap kisi Yateemkhaane (orphanage) yaa madrasah ko paise de sakte the!!!” (let me not get into an explanation on this as I don’t want to disclose anything on my philanthropic commitments)
I also do realise that tomorrow if I wish to donate something to a Muslim organisation (which should be the norm, according to several fellow Muslims), I would be criticised yet again by several ‘others’:
“Arrreee.. He’s a Muslim; obviously he would only patronise his own caste.. what else could one expect of him??!”
Friends.. it is a strange world indeed and we are living in stranger times.. and maybe the people who have commented are from a neighbour country, but believe me…
Believe me.. there are truly no boundaries/borders for religious fanatics… this is a worrying trend all over the world..
And trust me, it was always there.. the minds were always this narrow… it’s just that today, you get to read/speak about it more often than you breathe air and drink water!
I spent 15 years of my life at a Christian missionary school: The Assembly of God Church..
I went to a masjid on Ripon Street and learnt the Holy Quran and several other Islamic books for 3 years..
And I married a Hindu Brahmin who was NOT forced to convert to Islam…
All I can say at the end of this post for these scumbags is ironically in the words of Lord Jesus Christ…
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”
(Book of Luke; Chapter 23, Verse 34)
Wishful thought of the season:
Yeh Christmas jitni ‘Merry’ hai, utni hi hai ‘Teri’..
Par Afsos, tu samjhegaa nahin… 🙏🙏🙏
Here is his post with the screenshots of him with his family and those comments:
While Mir gave a befitting response following the criticism he faced after his Christmas greeting, Faesal was taught a lesson in Islam for merely putting this status update:
The most liked comment on his post was that of a ‘good Muslim’. But Faesal’s reply to that got even more likes indicating that the number of saner people is more.
However, the kind of responses received by Sami, Mir and Faesal actually point to a disturbing trend – albeit slowly, Islamism is on the rise. Faesal observes that Kashmiri Muslims used to post festival greetings addressed to their non-Muslim friends which changed after they “were told” it is un-Islamic. Mir, too, pointed that “maybe the people who have commented are from a neighbour [sic] country”.
And you know who our neighbours are!
