In a video that is making rounds on social media, Indian pacers Mohammad Siraj and Umran Malik were seen refusing to wear a Tilak on their forehead. The video is from a hotel in Nagpur where team India will lock horns with Australia in the first test of the Border – Gavaskar Trophy.

The video shows the hotel staff welcoming the players to the lobby with an age-old Indian custom, tilak. Several members of the Indian team and the support staff are seen accepting this mark of welcome, while a few gently refuse the staff members.

A part of that video, which is going viral on the internet, shows that the two ‘Muslim’ players refused to take part in a Hindu custom. The issue had several people talking about it on social media, many of whom were left displeased with this act.

A few Twitter users even asked the other players to stop catering to the ‘secular’ idea or celebrating Muslim festivals, as a result of this act.

A tweet by Suresh Chavanke, a right-wing journalist, gained maximum traction. He shared the video and wrote that the players haven’t let go of their religious extremism even after playing the game at the international level. The video shared by Chavanke in his tweet got over 1.6 million views, and several thousand upvotes.

However, a few people called out Chavanke on this issue. They stated that Siraj and Malik were not the only team members who refused to put a tilak on their foreheads. Co-founder of a fake news-busting website, Mohammad Zubair replied to the tweet by stating that Vikram Rathour and Hari Prasad Mohan also did kindly refuse the traditional form of welcome.
