In an increasing list of celebrities and sportsperson who have been body shamed by social media users, the name of Mithali Raj the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team also got added.

All of it started when Mithali posted a throwback picture with her friend Amreen Khurana and Afshan Kaura on twitter where she can be seen wearing a black tank top.

It did not go well with our sanskari Twitterati. They started trolling her for her dressing sense and asked her to dress like a woman and remove the picture from twitter.

Seeing the sexist remark on Mithali’s photo her fans started tweeting in her support. 

They defended her choice and asked the trolls to get rid off their regressive mindset. “Soch badlo desh badlo” (change your thinking, change your country) was an often repeated response to the negative comments.

This is not a standalone incident of body shaming in recent days, we have seen an increasing pattern of such incident nowadays. From Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Fatima Sana Sheikh and now Mithali Raj have become a victim of the same.

This incident clearly shows that there are a lot of people out there who are just waiting to judge you and pass their lewd comments. But, we have to take stand against them and never let them allow to strip us of our dignity.We need to fight back and shut their mouth like the fans of Mithali did.

The Indian Feed strongly condemns the body shaming and urge our users to take a stand against any such incident you come across.
