A complaint made by Indian Supreme court advocate against Muhammad Rizwan playing on field has been circulating on social media.
The complaint lodged states: “This is a complaint about Pakistan Cricket Player, Mohammad Rizwan, who was seen offering namaz on the cricket field during his team’s opening match of the ongoing ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 on Friday (October 6) against the Netherlands in Hyderabad.”
Ever since the Pakistani team arrived in India for the World Cup 2023, they have faced a barrage of criticism and insults. This complaint doesn’t come as a surprise, given that baseless accusations against the cricketer have been circulating as well.
Despite the negative reception, Pakistani netizens have rallied behind Rizwan, praising him for his actions and not allowing others’ judgments to deter him.
Mohamed Salah does the sajdah and thanks Allah after scoring every single time. Rizwan did everything right on the field too, it wasn’t targeted towards anyone and had no malice. More power to him 🇵🇰🇪🇬♥️#MuhammadRizwan #BabarAzam𓃵 #AFGvsENG pic.twitter.com/GM70jIWmTV

All the Muslims around the world are proud of you! You lives in our hearts and in indians’ heads rent free.
Thank you Muhammad Rizwan for always standing up for the right cause at the right time.❤️

It’s important to recall that upon their arrival in India, the team was warmly greeted by the locals. However, as the World Cup intensifies, emotions are running high. During the recent India versus Pakistan match, a significant number of fans in blue jerseys jeered the captain while he addressed the press.
In moments as crucial as these, a person’s character is put to the ultimate test. Wishing the best for our team and players regardless of the outcome, be it victory or defeat.
