One of India’s most prominent cricketers of the past, Harbhajan Singh, has asked India to boycott their matches against Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup as a protest to the Kashmir attack.
The Indian media and government has accused Pakistan for supporting the attack which claimed the lives of more than 40 innocent people. Pakistan quickly denied any involvement but that has gone unnoticed.
Harbhajan Singh voiced his opinion regarding the matter and made some shocking statements. He said:
There is no need for any relations with Pakistan, let alone cricket.
Don’t play the World Cup match with Pakistan on June 16 — country comes first for all of us and we are all standing with our forces. Pakistan has been promoting cross-border terrorism and this attack was unbelievably shocking.
India are one of the favorites to lift the World Cup trophy but not playing Pakistan would mean that they would have to forfeit the match points if they boycott the group fixtures to be played in Manchester.
I don’t care about losing points as the Indian team is powerful enough to win the World Cup without playing Pakistan.
