“Disrespectful & Pathetic,” Naseem Shah Slammed For Mocking & Body-Shaming Azam Khan
The incidents of body-shaming or fat-shaming are quite common in our daily lives despite the fact that we all know it is a very wrong practice as it may affect the confidence of a person in an adverse manner.
As cricket is one of the most loved games of the world, many cricketers are quite popular among the youngsters of their country and some even follow them because of which cricketers should be very careful in regard to their actions whether they are related to personal lives or professional lives.
Recently, the Pakistani cricketer Naseem Shah created a controversy after he body-shamed his fellow Pakistani cricketer Azam Khan in a match in the ongoing Bangladesh Premier League. A good number of Pakistani cricketers are taking part in the BPL and in a match which was played on 31st Jan 2023 between Khulna Tiger and Comilla Victorians, Naseem Shah said something to Azam Khan when he came to bat and then Naseem tried to hug Azam but the latter pushed the former away. After that, Naseem Shah was seen copying the walking style of Azam Khan and it was clearly visible that he was fat-shaming Azam.

we all know how mature and innocent Naseem shah is, he might have done wrong but I’m sure he didn’t mean for it to go as body shaming. On a side note, I didn’t see any bad/negative tweet when shadab khan literally did the same thing. Don’t be so harsh on naseem, he will learn. https://t.co/az7ZQxCR0Z

To me appears a naseem shah is implying he is “macho “with lots of power and how he pushed him so easily- Naseem keeps enjoying and doesn’t seem to change mood. I think viewers are misinterpreting the gesture here.
