Bangladesh-born writer Taslima Nasrin sparked a major controversy on social media on Tuesday when she noted that English cricket Mouen Ali would have joined terrorist equipment in Syria if he had not been a cricketer.
Her tweet read: “If Mouen Ali did not stay with cricket, he would go to Syria to join ISIL.”
The 58-year-old later clarified that her remarks were sarcasm and she also opposed fundamentalism and certainly did not do well with Mouyn’s father Munir Ali, who in a column for the English daily Indian Express expressed dissatisfaction with grim poisonous remarks. made by Taslima.

Someone who does not have self-esteem and respect for others can only bend to this level. “
Munir, who revealed that his father came to Britain from Mirpur in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and his mother is English, said he was angry about the whole episode and would like to let his feelings for Taslim be visible on her face.
“Honestly, I’m really angry, but I know I would play into the hands of people like her if I let my rage get out of hand. If I can meet her one day, I’ll tell her what I really think of her on my face. For now, I would ask her to choose a dictionary and see the meaning of sarcasm.
“It’s not what she thinks it is. It’s not vomiting nasty poisonous things against someone you don’t even know and then withdrawing it by saying it’s sarcasm. Of all the people I choose for her agenda, I can’t believe she chose my son. Everyone in the world of cricket knows who the person is, “he added.
