On Sunday, former India cricketer Mohammad kaif lashed out at Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and called the state ”a safe haven for terrorists.”
Kaif posted an Indian newspaper article and wrote it: Yes, but your country Pakistan certainly has a lot to do with terrorism, a safe breeding ground for terrorists. What an unfortunate speech at the UN and what a fall from grace from being a great cricketer to a puppet of Pakistan army and terrorists.”
Saurav Ganguly, former Indian skipper also marked the address of khan at the UNGA “ rubbish”, saying that this is not the cricketer the world knew of. In response to the tweet to the tweet from Virendra Sehwag Ganguly made the comment where he posted Imran Khan’s video.
“Viru…I see this and I am shocked…a speech which is unheard of… a world which needs peace, Pakistan as a country needs it the most…and the leader speaks such rubbish…not the Imran Khan the cricketer world knew…speech in UN was poor,” Ganguly had tweeted.
On facebook former Indian Cricketer Sehwag shared the video in which the cricketer-turned Prime Minister Khan can be seen attacking American anchors.
A video shared by Sehwag where the post was caption as “You sound like a welder from the Bronx, says the anchor. After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago, this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself.”
Khan mocked the country’s infrastructure in an interview with an American news channel, saying “You have to go to China and see the way their infrastructure is. In New York, I am watching the car bumping around here.”
The remark of Khan was not taken by the anchor in a good way and they blamed on khan “You don’t sound like a Prime Minister of Pakistan, you sound like a welder from the Bronx”.
Cricketers like Mohammad Shami, Harbajan Singh, and Irfan Pathan slammed Khan at the UNGA on Wednesday for his speech and said that his words did not reflect sportsmanship.
