  • Rizwan jumped to the defense of Haris Rauf
  • Rauf got into an alteraction with a fan
Mohammad Rizwan became the latest Pakistan cricketer to come out in support of star pacer Haris Rauf following a video that went viral on social media showing the star pacer losing his cool at a fan and almost indulging in a physical altercation with him.
Since the incident, Rauf has received support from his teammates and even the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Mohsin Naqvi put out a strong-worded post on social media stating that those responsible for the incident should apologize, or the PCB will take legal action against them.
Various Pakistan players like Shaheen Afridi, Ahmed Shehzad, and Hasan Ali, as well as former stars like Mohammad Hafeez, defended Rauf on social media.
However, it was Rizwan's post that caught the eye of cricket fans on social media. The Pakistan wicketkeeper batter cast doubt over whether the person in question was from Pakistan or India while calling out the behavior.
"It is irrelevant whether the person who disrespected Haris Rauf was from Pakistan or India. What truly matters is that this individual lacked values and manners. No one has the right to disrespect any human being, especially in front of their family members. Such appalling behavior must be stopped. Values like tolerance, respect, and compassion are increasingly rare commodities," said Rizwan on Twitter.
The Pakistan star's post irked users on the micro-blogging site, who were quick to react to the post.

For those unversed, the viral clip showed Rauf asumming the person to be Indian before the fan replied claiming he is from Paksitan.
Earlier in the day, Rauf clarified the incident and defended his actions by stating his parents and family were attacked.
“I decided to not bring this to social media, but now that the video is out, I feel it is necessary to address the situation. As public figures, we are open to receiving all kinds of feedback rom the public. They are entitled to support or criticize us. Nevertheless, when it comes to my parents and my family, I will not hesitate to respond accordingly. It is important to show respect towards people and their families, irrespective of their professions,” said Rauf.
