The boxer was severely criticized for his actions on the basis of his religion. People objected and trolled the fact that being a Muslim, he was celebrating Christmas. A user wrote: "Brother Muslims are not supposed to wish, because there is wrong faith behind this. May Allah Almighty guide us all in the straight path #Ameen". This was followed by criticism of his boxing career. A user wrote: "Biggest overrated, underachieving boxer. Hopefully, Santa gave you some courage to fight the big fighters". However, such haters were also countered by others who praised the boxer.
