Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan is married to Safa Baif in 2016. The duo have a son Imran, and are quite active on social media. Pathan, from time to time, keeps posting pictures with his wife and son. Recently, Safa had posted a picture on Instagram, where her face was blurred, while Pathan’s and son’s face was not.
For this, Pathan was criticised for not letting her wife reveal her face. Now, the Baroda cricketer has responded to the criticism. Taking to Twitter, Pathan clarified that it was his wife’s choice, and wrote, “I’m her mate not her master."
“This picture is posted by my queen from my son’s account. We are getting lot of hate. Let me post this here as well. She blurred this pic by her choice. And Yes, I’m her mate not her master”.
