Jofra Archer joins in Twitteratis to bash controversial Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen for her stern words against Moeen Ali.

World Cup hero and England pacer Jofra Archer was among the millions of Twitter users who hit back at Taslima Nasreen for her controversial tweet on England all-rounder Moeen Ali.

Creating controversy is not new for the 58-year-old Bangladeshi author, who often tries to gain attention with her writings on criticism of religion and women’s oppression.

For those who didn’t know, Taslima Nasreen for her controversial writings has received death threats from radical Muslim groups.

That led her to leave her native country and adopt Swedish citizenship.

Coming back to the controversial comments, this time Jofra Archer was the one who had to remind the lady that she is out of her mind.

“Sarcastic ? No one is laughing, not even yourself, the least you can do is delete the tweet,” he commented on the author’s other tweet.

 

The Mymensingh-born Nasreen in her now-deleted tweet had said,  “If Moeen Ali were not stuck with cricket, he would have gone to Syria to join ISIS.”

Moeen Ali has been in Mumbai with the Chennai Super Kings, gearing up for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.

Ali was bought by CSK for Rs 7 crore at the IPL 2021 auction.

A number of social media users went to report her controversial tweet labeling it as hateful content.

 

However, Nasreen,  defended her post on Moeen Ali, saying it was sarcastic and her detractors used it against her.

“Haters know very well that my Moeen Ali tweet was sarcastic. But they made that an issue to humiliate me because I try to secularize Muslim society & I oppose Islamic fanaticism. One of the greatest tragedies of humankind is pro-women leftists support anti-women Islamists,” Nasreen said in another social media post.

Here is how Twitter reacts to the author’s comments:
