Ojha condemns abuses hurled at MS Dhoni
Cricket fans are getting clueless day by day. Instead of making proper use of social media technology, they are misusing it. Cricketers are being roasted for their below-par performances on social media by a certain section of the users. At times, people are even crossing their limits to hurl abuses at the cricketers.
The abuses went from bad to worse after Chennai Super Kings lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL a couple of days ago. The defeat left the fans annoying as they abused MS Dhoni on Instagram. Some users went beyond the abuses as they gave rape threats to MS Dhoni’s daughter ‘Ziva’. Kedar Jadhav was treated badly by users on social media for his string of batting failures.
Meanwhile, former India player Pragyan Ojha condemned this act. “It’s a very important subject that we all need to address. It’s not only about a sport or about an individual it’s about the nation.
“If someone reads these kinds of things it’s very disturbing. I have a young boy, you have a daughter, we have female colleagues working with us,” he said while speaking on Sports Today.
It is really sad to defend a legend like MS Dhoni in India: Pragyan Ojha
Pragyan Ojha was not at all pleased with what he has seen so far on social media as he labelled all the abuses as ‘utter nonsense’ while also adding that the social media should be used effectively to communicate with each other.
Ojha said that social media should not be misused and also warned the people not to abuse some of the Indian legends. At the same time, Ojha was feeling sad that he had to defend a player like MS Dhoni or Sachin Tendulkar in India.
“We are privileged that even during the pandemic we can use technology to communicate. But people are sitting in their houses in a dark room and writing nonsense about someone who has done so much for the country. Matter of fact, about anybody.
It’s nonsense, you cannot speak like that. I cannot take it. As a citizen of India, I condemn it very strongly and I will not take this nonsense.
“It’s very sad that a Pragyan Ojha is coming and speaking about MS Dhoni or a Sachin Tendulkar. These people are absolute legends. They have given us so much reason to be happy about. These are pillars of the sport and we are here to defend them in our own country, it makes me really sad,” Ojha added.
