Although Ms. Sajdeh deleted the post within hours, several users accused her of being “selective” in speaking out against oppression and atrocities.

Comments were left on Ms. Sajdeh’s birthday post for Rohit Sharma, who turned 37 on April 30.

One person wrote, “Kyun madam? Palestinians se itni humdardi kyu (Why such sympathy with Palestinians, Madam?).”

“As a Rohit Sharma fan … I’m ashamed of you,” said another user.

However, there were a handful of people who lauded Ms. Sajdeh for supporting Palestine.

“My respect for Hitman and you after the story,” read a comment.

A user said, “Thank you for supporting Palestine.”

The sentiment online was one of respect for Rohit Sharma and his wife.

What Is the “All Eyes On Rafah” campaign?

Celebrities, human rights groups, and ordinary people have been sharing the “All Eyes On Rafah” image on their social media platforms to raise awareness about the ongoing Israeli onslaught in Gaza. After the latest Israeli strikes killed 45 Palestinians at a tent camp on Monday, Bollywood celebrities, including some A-listers, shared the now-global image.

Among those who expressed solidarity with the people of Palestine were Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Triptii Dimri, Samantha Prabhu, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Swara Bhasker, and Dia Mirza, among others.
