Bangladeshi cricketer Shakib Al Hasan tenders apology

Threatened by religious fanatics for performing Shri Mahakali Puja

  • Will the secularists and liberals ever tell Hindus, why the religious fanatics are angered by the worship of Hindu deities ? Why don’t they teach fanatics instead, those who ask Hindus to walk the path of secularism and Gandhigiri ?
  • Why just Hindus are expected to follow the so-called ‘Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb’? When will Hindus forsake such one-sided secularism ?

New Delhi – The religious fanatics have started to threaten Bangladeshi cricketer Shakib Al Hasan, after the latter performed Shri Mahakali Puja in Kolkata. As a result, the cricketer has tendered apologies. He also said that he had just attended the function and not performed the Puja. ‘If anyone is hurt, I shall not visit hereafter’, he added.

He had received a death threat on Facebook for performing Puja in the last week. Giving into widespread criticism on social media, Shakib eventually asked for pardon.
