Social media trolls are always on the move, nowadays, to spot the slightest of the glitches and slam the person with mean tweets. From actors to politicians and singers, public personalities have had to face a barrage of trolls — sometimes for no real reason at all. And, cricketers are the latest addition to that list. Recently, Irrfan Khan was lambasted for posting a picture with his wife and Mohammad Kaif was trolled for doing Surya Namaskar because apparently, it’s un-Islamic.

Now, Kaif is under the sun yet again, and the reason will annoy you to no end. The 36-year-old shared a cute picture in which he was playing chess with his kid. To his surprise, a lot of people spewed hate in the comments and criticised him and attributed it to “religion” as usual.

Steal a glance at the photo he posted on Facebook here.

Instead of looking at the bright side, people started slamming him and their reason was again directed towards the rules in Islam. While one user posted, “I think chess is prohibited in Islam….. I used to be a good player bit wen I read hadeeth I found that it is not to play chess .from that day I never played it…. Mohammad Kaif sir,” another one told him to “go and read Quran again”.

Take a look at some comments here.

However, a lot of people came to his defense and started making fun of the trolls with dollops of sarcasm.

See some comments here.

And, the blame game continued… So, what do you make of the comments?

      The thing is playing chess is allowed if it's done for mental strengthenment and it's not acting as distraction from things of virtue and productivity like education.

        interesting to see a debacle in islam just after 1400rs, and just by saudi arabia the leader in making people stupid. more interestingly every day a new definition is coming and muslims are blindfolded by money in such a way that they havent yet understood that islam was created just to have authoritarian power. it has absolutely nothing to do with god.

          We get unnecessarily swayed by the headline and begin discussing value of chess in Islam. The basic issue is, how anybody can comment on one's way of living and his religious leanings. Just because, internet offers opportunity to everyone to voice their opinion, people forward their comments. Interesting part is that the person who has caused this discussion, gives to all this trash and continues to enjoy his same lifestyle.

            Seems like Islam's founder had great insight on things to come and termed each and every thing harm based on that
