Former Indian cricket team player Mohammad Kaif today took to Twitter and urged people to not malign religion by taking part in violent activities. Following his tweet, a large number of social media users supported Kaif and his positive message and also gave it back to some people who tried to troll the former Indian cricketer.

Mohammad Kaif took a stand on the ongoing unrest in Basirhat city, a municipality in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, India.

Kaif tweeted that the rioting taking place in the city which has resulted in property damage worth crores, is against the teaching of Prophet Mohammad. He also mentioned that Prophet is too great to be defended with a response over a Facebook post.

Following Kaif’s tweet, here’s how Twitterati reacted:

Violent clashes erupted in Basirhat after a Class 10 student updated a controversial picture on Facebook, although the boy was detained by police but the violence hasn’t abated.

Meanwhile, West Bengal police arrested a clutch of prominent politicians today to prevent them from visiting violence-hit Basirhat.

Police arrested BJP leaders Roopa Ganguly and Locket Chatterjee near the Kolkata airport when they insisted on proceeding to Basirhat, around 12 kilometres from the Bangladesh border that has seen violence by Muslim mobs and retaliatory attacks over four days.
