Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma and his wife Ritika Sajdeh came under fire after the latter shared the ‘All Eyes on Rafah’ post in support of Palestine against the deadly attacks by Israel. The social media campaign demands immediate ceasefire in Rafah, a city in the southern Gaza Strip, where at least 45 people including women and babies were burnt to death following an Israeli strike at a refugee camp.

The deadly attack gained momentum with netizens standing in solidarity with Palestine and demanding immediate ceasefire by sharing ‘All Eyes on Rafah’.  Captain Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika Sajdeh was among the many celebrities who shared the ‘All Eyes on Rafah’.

This spread outrage among a section of fans who accused her of being ‘selective’ in speaking against oppression and atrocities. They questioned her for not standing up for atrocities against Kashmiri Pandits, and onslaught against Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Angry fans brutally trolled her for being quite during atrocities against Hindus following which Ritika deleted her Instagram post.

“She is the wife of Rohit Sharma...Ritika Sajdeh.... Never talk about Kashmiri pandits.... Never talk about Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh... But showing too much care about Palestine and Gaza🤡,” commented a fan.

Another fan shared, “Now All Eyes on Rafah" of Celebreties and cricketers ... But not even a single tweet about love Jihad ...kanhaiya kumar slaughter in Rajasthan… Never care about Kashmiri pandits, Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh...🤡”

“This is Rohit Sharma's wife. You'll never hear them voice for Hindus—be it Kashmiri Pandits, Pakistani, or Bangladeshi Hindus! But they have time for Palestine. Shame on you, Ritika 🤡,” commented another fan.

Among other actors who shared the ‘All Eyes on Rafah’ campaign to raise awareness on the ongoing Israeli onslaught in Gaza were Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Varun Dhawan, Triptii Dimri, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Swara Bhasker, Dia Mirza and many others.
