Two days ago, Mithali Raj was heavily trolled for doing something we were born with a right to do. The right to exercise her choice to wear and what she wanted to wear. The 34-year-old skipper has a long list of achievements to her name and has bagged quite a lot of titles but Raj’s trolling proved that nothing matters to the online moral police. Body shaming and online trolling is not new for public figures but there has emerged a pattern in which it is done. It’s the women public figures who mostly fall victim to online trolling and body shaming and wrestler Vinesh Phogat has come out in support of Mithali Raj raising a question on just that.

23-year-old star wrestler Vinesh Phogat, asked people why is it only women who are questioned on what they wear and not men. No matter how basic this question is but just the fact that it had to be publicly asked by Vinesh Phogat on social media platform, speaks volumes about the prevailing situation in the country. Vinesh Phogat is an international and a Commonwealth Games medalist and like Mithali Raj has made the country proud on more than one occasion.

Mithali Raj’s trolling on Twitter started when she posted a picture of herself posing with her girl friends and wearing what her trollers called a ‘revealing’ top. Mithali Raj shared the picture with a caption as simple as #tb #PostShootSelfie #funtimes #girlstakeover, little did she know she would be flooded with hate comments. However, she shut her trollers saying she does not have to take advice on her dressing dress. Her supporters too were quick to mum those body shaming Mithali Raj.
