After becoming a soft target for social media miscreants for posting a picture with his son playing chess, former Indian cricketer Mohd Kaif on Sunday gave a fitting reply to the otherwise ignorant trolls calling the game ‘breaker of chains’ in terms of caste, creed and religion.
“When you are playing a sport, it’s one of the best ways to break barriers of caste, creed, and religion,” Kaif said.
Kaif, who was known for his velcro fielding during his cricketing career caught the internet bullies red handed when they tried to humiliate him on social media once again and this time just for playing chess with his son.
The 36-year-old in his recent reply might have dropped the mic in order to shut the trolls down once and for all as he clearly mentioned the supremacy of sports over one’s religion.
Taking his thoughts to the micro blogging site Twitter, Kaif said that chess taught him spontaneity and presence of mind among other things.
“Chess is a wonderful game. Passing on your learnings is not a crime, especially of the game which has been India’s own invention and followed from centuries. Chess has taught me spontaneity, presence of mind in and to strategize at an early age. It has made me come out winner in many situations on the field and life,” wrote Kaif.
He concluded by wishing everyone to indulge in sporting activities.
