New Delhi: Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, has come under scrutiny on social media for his selective response to recent social issues. While Tendulkar promptly tweeted about the tragic blast incident in Kerala, where one person lost their life, netizens are criticizing him for his extended silence on matters such as the ongoing situation in Manipur and cases of harassment against women.
Critics point out that Tendulkar remained silent on the Manipur issue for four months, despite being vocal about the Kerala incident. Additionally, concerns have been raised about his alleged lack of action regarding harassment faced by women boxers, drawing attention to what some perceive as hypocrisy on the part of the cricket legend.
Tendulkar, celebrated for his cricketing achievements including scoring 100 international centuries, has also served as a Member of Parliament. However, social media users have expressed disappointment over his reportedly low attendance record in Parliament, contrasting his public role with his engagement on social issues.
The social media outcry highlights a growing trend where Indian celebrities are being held accountable for their public stances on social and political issues.
While supporters of Tendulkar argue that he exercised his right to raise concerns about the Kerala blast, critics assert that his selective engagement reflects a disconnect from broader social issues affecting the country.
Deeply saddened by the blasts in Kerala. Condolences to the affected families, and praying for the recovery of those injured.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) October 29, 2023
