Tarek Fatah doesn’t seem to have learned any lesson from the last time he took a cheap shot at Pakistani Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmad at the captains’ meet up with Queen Elizabeth II. Turns out he does not even know cricket that much.
Once again Fatah, who is a rabid hate preacher online, tried to mock Sarfaraz Ahmad, this time with someone he thought was a ‘mullah’. Turns out this guy doesn’t watch cricket otherwise he could have known who this guy next to Sarfaraz was.
It was none other than Chief Selector Inzamam ul Haq, who was inspecting the picture with Sarfaraz before their high voltage game against India. Fatah bit more than he could chew as he got himself brutally trolled from both sides of the border.
Here’s What Happened
Recently, Tarek Fatah tweeted a photo of Pakistan Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmad and Chief selector Inzamam. Here’s his ignorant tweet:
The @CricketWcup2019 witnesses a bizarre spectacle only Pakistanis can offer. Capt. @SarfarazA_54 Ahmed brings out their 13th Man, a Mullah to bless the pitch for tomorrow's match against India. Thank you @Sachin_anshu06 for sharing this gem. #INDvsPAK #PAKvsIND #WorldCup2019 pic.twitter.com/MtpAngKDun

Pakistani and Indians might have a difference of opinion on many matters, but this time they did not. No only Pakistanis but also Indians got united in defending Inzamam, something that hate mongers like Fatah absolutely abhor.
Fans reminded him of Inzamam ul Haq’s achievements.
That’s Inzamam-ul-Haq, their chief selector, you bigoted ignoramus! https://t.co/bnNqadDBi6

Inzamam played 120 test matches and scored 8000+ runs, played 378 ODIs and scored 11000+ runs. With 25 centuries and 46 fifties in his test career and 10 centuries and 83 fifties in his ODI career.

With due respect sir don't politicize the game. Pls stay away, it's cricket and it's a passion for both the side. People shares their cricketing heroes from both the side. The person in the frame is Inzamam, the all time great batsman 🙏

Inzamam ul Haq – The Legendary Cricketer
Inzamam ul Haq is one the finest batsman Pakistan has ever produced, with over 20 thousand runs scored on the international stage. Inzamam played a crucial role in Pakistan’s triumph of 1992 World Cup where he got the Man of the Tournament award. He is Pakistan’s third-highest run scorers in Tests, and leads the pack with the most runs in ODIs for the country.
