Former all-rounder Irfan Pathan has faced the ire of his fundamentalists when he uploaded a selfie with his wife Safa Baig on his Facebook page.

Irfan, who married the model from Jeddah, for the first time uploaded a selfie with his wife Safa Baig on Sunday as she covered her face with her arms —"This girl is trouble #love #wifey”, Irfan commented.

Soon after it was posted, Irfan faced trouble within a few miniutes when the social media users started ridiculing him. Some users have trolled Safa Baig for applying nailpolish while some suggested Irfan to remove the photo as it is against the Islamic law.

One comment reads: “WTF Tell her to cover her arms. Being a Muslim and being a Pathan its your duty to do so.” Irfan had married model Safa in a low-key affair in February last year. The couple were blessed with a baby boy in December.
