  1. We have often heard the wise say that hope is the biggest weapon when it comes to surviving adversities. Till the time one can hope, they possess the means to survive and emerge a victor. If you are wondering what is the point behind that piece of 'gyaan' we just passed on, well we are trying to make a point. And this point involves a very sensitive (if you will) issue - minorities. Be it ethnic, racial or religious, minorities exist in every part of the world. However, their treatment in every part of the world is pretty much identical. © Twitter Right from facing challenges within the education systems, employment opportunities, to dietary and dressing choices, as well as the disputes one faces with regards to identity and a sense of belonging, most minorities around the world have it tough, more often than not. So, bearing those aspects in mind and the fact that even in India we often hear minority groups crying foul for a number of reasons, Pakistan Prime Minister's decision to do something for the Hindu minorities in the state, comes as positive news. © Twitter Imran Khan decided to finally walk the talk and do something concrete for the Hindu minority residing in the country where he enjoys the title of Prime Minister. Now, in a bid to keep his promise to the Hindus in the country, the federal government led by Imran Khan recently announced that they have decided to restore and reopen over 400 Hindu temples across the country and hand them over to the Hindus. © Twitter This not only comes as a gesture of peace and inclusivity but also sparks a ray of hope for all the minority groups around the world. They can now hope for their leaders to follow the lead and spare them a second look, and perhaps take a few tips on how to cater to the needs of the minorities. However, since there are a lot of temples in Pakistan (some of which have been destroyed and lay abandoned since long), the government will be restoring two temples every year. Starting with the temples in Sialkot and Peshawar, which has a functioning Jagannath temple, and a 1000-year-old, abandoned Shivalaya Teja Singh temple, the Pakistan government plans to refurbish all 400 temples on its land. © Twitter According to The Logical Indian report, an All-Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement (APHRM) survey showed since 1990 close to 408 out of the 428 temples have been converted into restaurants, schools, and offices. However, as per a recent survey conducted by the Pakistan government, 11 temples were located in Sindh, four in Punjab, three in Balochistan and two in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which are operational as of 2019. © Twitter People are also looking at it as a peace gesture for India's consideration, since it's coming from the Pakistan PM directly. We cannot help but wonder what Indian politicians will make of that, given that only months ago in February this year, a few unidentified vandals destroyed a Hindu temple in Pakistan's Sindh province and even set the holy books and idols on fire. Hindus came out in protest after the incident, following which Imran Khan ordered for swift action. We can only hope that this recent development from the Pakistan government comes in complete honesty and goodwill, which could then succeed in setting a great example for the rest of the world.
  2. It has been less than a month since the unfortunate terror attack backed by the terrorist group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, enraged the entire nation as it claimed the lives of more than 40 brave CRPF jawans in the most gruesome manner with their children orphaned and their wives widowed in an instant. The whole country has been in mourning and have been trying to show their love and respect for the brave soldiers and their families however they can. The Indian cricket team did their best to do the same last week when former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni distributed camouflage caps with the symbol of Indian cricket at the centre, ahead of the third ODI against Australia in his hometown of Ranchi. The Men in Blue donned the unusual-looking caps the entire game in order to honour the martyrs of the infamous attack. #TeamIndia will be sporting camouflage caps today as mark of tribute to the loss of lives in Pulwama terror attack and the armed forces And to encourage countrymen to donate to the National Defence Fund for taking care of the education of the dependents of the martyrs #JaiHind pic.twitter.com/fvFxHG20vi — BCCI (@BCCI) March 8, 2019 "#TeamIndia will be sporting camouflage caps today as mark of tribute to the loss of lives in Pulwama terror attack and the armed forces. And to encourage countrymen to donate to the National Defence Fund for taking care of the education of the dependents of the martyrs #JaiHind," the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) tweeted ahead of the match. However, the Pakistan Cricket Board strongly feels these actions taken by MSD and the BCCI are wrong and have led to a loss of credibility in the cricketing world. PCB chairman Ehsan Mani said he has "strongly taken up the matter with the ICC." "There's absolutely no misunderstanding in the ICC about our position," Mani said in a press conference last weekend in Karachi. "We believe that cricket and sports should not be used for politics and we have said this very clearly. Their [India] credibility in the cricketing world has gone down very badly." That's not all as the Pakistan Information ministry, held by Fawad Chaudhry, even urged the International Cricket Council to ban BCCI and the Men in Blue from international cricket for combining sports and politics. As a response to the bold statements by the PCB, ICC spokesperson Claire Furlong let The Associated Press know about their stand on the whole issue via email. "The BCCI sought permission from the ICC to wear the caps as part of a fundraising drive and in memory of fallen soldiers who have died, which was granted," she wrote. Now, we agree that sports and politics should be kept miles away from each other. Over the years there have been numerous incidents where politicising a game or an athletic meet has led to adverse results for the sporting world. But the BCCI's idea to pay homage to the nation's brave soldiers cannot be deemed as politically motivated. Athletes wearing camouflage caps is in no way trying to demean or insult the cricketers of our neighbours, nor were we trying to get some kind of upper hand in the international scenario against the PCB.
  3. Ever since the deadly Pulwama terror attack by JeM that took the lives of over 40 CRPF soldiers on Valentine's Day last month, the cricketing fraternity in India has had varying opinions about the Board of Cricket Control in India's (BCCI) decision to plea to the other member nations of the International Cricket Council or the ICC to “sever ties with the nation from which terrorism emanates”. In other words, the BCCI wanted to boycott the Pakistan cricket team during the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in London and Wales as a means to show their protest against terrorism. I'm boycotting today's #IndvAus ODI to protest the BCCI pestering the ICC to ban Pakistan from the World Cup — Dennis Universe Boss (@DennisCricket_) March 2, 2019 A number of cricketing legends such as Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh were openly advocating this move while there were others such as Sunil Gavaskar and Indian master blaster Sachin Tendulkar who instead thought that competing and beating Pakistan on the biggest platform of the game would be the most impactful response. However, during the quarterly ICC meet in Dubai, when BCCI CEO Rahul Johri raised the issue to be discussed formally, ICC chairman Shashank Manohar refused to pay heed to the topic saying that the council did not enjoy the authority to 'isolate' Pakistan because it continues to be one of the permanent members of the Council. Amid India-Pak World Cup clash uncertainty, BCCI to discuss ICC's stand on terrorism pic.twitter.com/Gex2n2PS0v — Mukesh Rajpoot (@MukeshR43127690) March 4, 2019 So, the most pertinent question here is, now what?. The decision of forfeiting from the contest against Pakistan now rests completely in the hands of the BCCI. The two cricketing titans are scheduled to go head to head during the point round on 16th June 2019 and even if India decides to not show up for the match and Pakistan wins by default, it will have little to no harm on India's chances at qualifying for the knockout rounds. However, the real issue arises if and when the two rivals meet again during the semis or worse yet, the World Cup final. Is India ready to give up on all those players who only want to lift the trophy and have been dreaming about this day ever since they were kids? Alternatively, will they just look over the agenda and face them? The kind of heat the BCCI will face from those who share Ganguly and Singh's vision, will then be extremely difficult to deal with the Indian Cricket Board. Yes, India has been wronged, time and again, as terrorism has been inflicted on our sovereign land and the perpetrators are all around us, but when politics get involved with sports, the outcome, more often than not, is ugly.
  4. There's probably not a single person in the country right now who doesn't know the simmering tensions between India and Pakistan, which are at an all-time high right now. The recent turbulence started with the deadly Pulwama terror attack on 14th February and then escalated after India's air strike on a JeM terror camp in Pakistan on 26th February. Amid all this turbulence and rash cries for a possible confrontation, a lot of people from both countries have come together to call for peace and got the hashtag #SayNoToWar trending on Twitter. This hashtag started yesterday, but right now, it's much more important after Pakistan announced that it is releasing captured IAF Pilot Abhinandan Varthaman tomorrow as a 'gesture of peace'. #SayNoToWar is not cowardice. The father of the nation was opposed to any war and he certainly was no coward. In fact he was one of the bravest that humanity has ever seen. Social media jingoism and mindless warmongering should not be mistaken for bravery!! — Prashant Kishor (@PrashantKishor) February 28, 2019 It's great!

  5. With the tensions increasing between India and Pakistan, we are trying to find respite in the situation for our Armed Forces, who're either in captivity or battling the current scenario to give us peaceful nights. In the midst of these screaming tensions though, a newborn baby in Rajasthan's Nagaur region has been named 'Mirage', after the Mirage 2000 fighter jets, used by the Indian Air Force, in the 26th February's air strikes against Pakistan-based terror camps. © Twitter The baby has officially been christened 'Mirage Singh Rathore' and his father, SS Rathore hopes that his son joins the nations' security forces when he grows up, someday. “We named our child Mirage Rathore to commemorate the strike on Pakistan by the Mirage jets. We hope he will join the security forces when he grows up," He told a local news agency while in conversation with them. © Twitter The boy, obviously born on Tuesday when India went ahead with the air strikes, was named the same to commemorate a memorable day, according to his family. His uncle, who is in the Air Force said he received news of two good developments on Tuesday. One was India's attack on Pakistan territory and the other was the birth of his nephew. Well, this does lean on some solid shreds of patriotism and when Mirage does grow up, we're sure he's going to consider joining the security forces after he finds out the back-story to his name. Well, if you thought the name 'Stalin' was a bit too idealistically communist for little boys growing up in Kerala, then Mirage is definitely going to one-up them with this historic memory that reeks of patriotism. © Reuters In the wee hours of the 26th morning, 12 Mirage-2000 jets entered the Pakistan air space and dropped 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs on Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camp-site, in Balakot. The Mirage-2000, developed by a French company, Dassault Aviation is one of the deadliest aircrafts in existence and it was first commissioned in 1985. It was first recognised when it was used in the Kargil warfare in 1999, following which the Government placed additional orders for 10 more Mirage-2000 jets in 2004, making it a total of 50 jets. © Reuters We're sure it would be an honour for baby Mirage to grow up with a name like that, but without actually flying a Mirage-2000 jet into war, when he does decide to join the forces!
  6. Before the funeral pyres and graves of the CRPF soldiers martyred in the Pulwama attack on 14th February 2019 could go cold, India showed Pakistan how terrorism must truly be dealt with when push comes to shove. Earlier this morning, India carried out an air-borne strike on three locations in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to eliminate terrorists and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) training camps in the area. The air-strike was carried out by the Indian Air Force (IAF) using hi-tech fighter jets, which successfully destroyed the camps of the terror-outfits functioning out of three pivotal centres in the area. Here are all the details you need to know about the who, when, where and how of the air-strike carried out by the Indian Air Force during the wee hours of 26th February 2019, that made India's stand on terrorism very clear: The Timeline The Indian Air Force dropped 1000 kg bombs on three sensitive terror camps in Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi in PoK and Pakistan. Here is how the series of air-strikes were carried out. Intel Sources: Ammunition dump blown up today in Balakot,Pakistan by IAF Mirages. The dump had more than 200 AK rifles, uncountable rounds hand grenades, explosives and detonators pic.twitter.com/b7ENbKgYaH — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 3:45 am - 3:53 am - The first strike was carried out at Balakot, 24-km north-west of Muzaffarabad. Joint training camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba were located in the area. These are launch pads that were jointly operated by the three terror outfits. 3:48 am - 3:55 am - The IAF struck the terror camps in Muzaffarabad next. 3:55 am - 4:04 am - Chakothi, which is over 50 kilometres from Muzaffarabad, was the last and final target of the strike. Source The Official Statement By The Indian Government On The Airstrike An official statement from the government on the airstrike on the terror bases in Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi by the Indian Air Force, was made by the Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale in a detailed statement, earlier this morning. Here is the full statement: · On 14 February 2019, a suicide terror attack was conducted by a Pak based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammad, leading to the martyrdom of 40 brave jawans of the CRPF. JeM has been active in Pakistan for the last two decades and is led by Masood Azhar with its headquarters in Bahawalpur. · This organization, which is proscribed by the UN, has been responsible for a series of terrorist attacks including on the Indian Parliament in December 2001 and the Pathankot airbase in January 2016. · Information regarding the location of training camps in Pakistan and PoJK has been provided to Pakistan from time to time. Pakistan, however, denies their existence. The existence of such massive training facilities capable of training hundreds of jihadis could not have functioned without the knowledge of Pakistan authorities. · India has been repeatedly urging Pakistan to take action against the JeM to prevent jihadis from being trained and armed inside Pakistan. Pakistan has taken no concrete actions to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism on its soil. #WATCH: Foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale briefs the media in Delhi https://t.co/Th0TjwO99o — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 · Credible intelligence was received that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country, and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose. In the face of imminent danger, a preemptive strike became absolutely necessary. · In an intelligence-led operation in the early hours of today, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot. In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis, who were being trained for fidayeen action, were eliminated. This facility at Balakot was headed by Maulana Yousuf Azhar alias Ustad Ghouri, the brother-in-law of Masood Azhar, Chief of JeM. · The Government of India is firmly and resolutely committed to taking all necessary measures to fight the menace of terrorism. Hence this non-military preemptive action was specifically targeted at the JeM camp. The selection of the target was also conditioned by our desire to avoid civilian casualties. The facility is located in a thick forest on a hilltop far away from any civilian presence. As the strike has taken place only a short while ago, we are awaiting further details. JeM's Yusuf Azhar alias Mohammad Salim alias Ustaad Gohri who was targeted today by IAF #airstrike in Balakot across LOC was on the Interpol list and among the most wanted in India. pic.twitter.com/1eTj8FhFMJ — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 · The Government of Pakistan had made a solemn commitment in January 2004 not to allow its soil or territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India. We expect that Pakistan lives up to its public commitment and takes follow up actions to dismantle all JeM and other camps and hold the terrorists accountable for the actions. 7 Vital Tactical Moves Used By IAF During The Strike 1.

  7. On 14th February 2019, a dastardly terror attack robbed India of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel. Since then, the country and its citizens waited anxiously for the government to take adequate steps in a bid to avenge the lost souls. And, on 26th February, India struck a major blow to the notorious Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) which was responsible for the ghastly suicide strike in Pulwama. In the wee hours of Tuesday, the Indian Air Force (IAF) deployed 12 of its Mirage 2000 fighter jets that crossed the border and carried out swift airstrikes to eliminate multiple terror camps and launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan. The Indian jets dropped bombs weighing 1,000 kgs (in total) in a 21-minute operation that resulted in the elimination of Jaish's biggest terror camp in Balakot. According to a statement issued by Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale, India targeted the terror camps and avoided the areas that were occupied by civilians. As per "credible intelligence" JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various part of the country and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose which made India's pre-emptive strike absolutely necessary. #India struck biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot; a very large number of terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and fidayeen jihadis were eliminated: Sh Vijay Gokhale, Foreign Secretary pic.twitter.com/D8kk4gWfWI — PIB India (@PIB_India) February 26, 2019 "In an intelligence-led operation in the early hours of today, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot.

This facility at Balakot was headed by Maulana Yousuf Azhar (alias Ustad Ghouri), the brother-in-law of Maulana Masood Azhar, Chief of JeM," the Foreign Secretary revealed. It was the first cross-border airstrike that India has carried out in nearly five decades. The last such action was during the Bangladesh war in 1971. Thus, when the news surfaced on television and social media platforms early on Tuesday, the Indians across the globe hailed the Indian Air Force for their airstrike. The Indian sports fraternity, too, joined the chorus in saluting the brave fighter pilots who successfully carried out the retaliatory attack.

Strike Out Terrorism. — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) February 26, 2019
  8. Ever since the infamous Pulwama terror attack, former Indian cricketers and other sports officials have been talking about boycotting the Pakistan cricket team during the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 to be held in England and Wales in June. With Punjab Cricket Association removing the photos of iconic Pakistani cricketers from the Mohali stadium and now BCCI doing the same from the head office, the rage in the cricket fraternity is burning deep against our neighbours. A couple of days ago, former Indian bowler Harbhajan Singh voiced his displeasure against Pakistan. "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,” said the cricketer. “Pakistan has been promoting cross-border terrorism and this attack was unbelievably shocking.” On Wednesday, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly echoed his ex-teammate's opinion when he basically said that Team India is strong enough to be a success at the World Cup even if they do not play against the match Sarfraz Ahmed and his men. But amidst all the chaos there are all but four decisions that the Board of Cricket Control in India can choose to take and all of them are bound to cause multi-fold consequences: Decision 1: Complete Boycott Of Pakistan During The World Cup © Reuters A complete boycott would involve forfeiting every game against Pakistan during the World Cup. In a relatively shorter tournament of the top 10 teams in the world, every side is going to play at least one game against the nine others during the points round. Without a doubt, India is more than capable to making it to the semis even if they give up some points but what if the two teams meet in the knockout rounds or worse yet, in the final? Will BCCI be willing to up give the chance of winning the World Cup? Decision 2: Forfeiting Just The Points Round Match © Reuters If India decides to boycott the Men in Green during the points round, they still have eight matches to cover up. Sure, the burden on Virat Kohli and team's shoulders would be a tad bit more than the others but it's nothing they can't handle. Say, the Men in Blue do meet them in the semis of the final and decide to play them, then does that not defeat the whole purpose of the protest? Doesn't it feel like a facade, an act to show revolt against Pakistan? Decision 3: Campaign To Ban Pakistan From The World Cup © Reuters According to a report by News 18, the Committee of Administration (CoA) has ordered BCCI to push the International Cricket Council (ICC) into banning the Pakistani cricket team from participating in the 2019 World Cup altogether. There is no denying the fact that India is the major revenue source for ICC and if BCCI puts them in a situation to choose between the two teams, the council is likely to tilt in favour of India. However, if things were to go south and ICC rejects BCCI's 'Ban-Pakistan' campaign, not only will it play against the public image of the Board but it will also lead to people questioning India's ability to host the 2021 Champions Trophy and the 2023 World Cup. Decision 4: Play Pakistan Regardless © Reuters This may turn out to be upsetting to a lot of us but this is the most likely decision BCCI is going to take. The attack has left a deep impact in the heart of every Indian citizen but all the hard work put in by Team India must be rewarded. The revolt against terrorism is not disregarded but the World Cup is important too. It is easy for people to suggest the boycott but even if there is a slight chance of this measure leading to a sad end to India's world cup journey, BCCI will act against it. In such times of distress the need for rational decision-making is of utmost importance. Loud noises and anger looks dramatic, sure, but what impacts would take leave on BCCI and the Indian cricket team in the long run must be taken into consideration. The ultimate authority lies in the hands of the Indian board.
  9. 14th February 2019 marked one of the darkest days in India's rich history. A cowardly terror strike in the Pulwama district of Awantipora robbed India of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel on the spot, while injuring several others. The tragic incident has since become the topic of great discussion, further fuelling backlash for Pakistan over their alleged role in the deadly strike. In protest against the Pulwama attack, the Indian government withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status awarded to Pakistan. Upon withdrawal, basic customs duty on all goods exported from Pakistan to India has been raised to 200 per cent with immediate effect. More recently, IMG Reliance, too, pulled out of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as their main broadcaster, as a mark of respect for the CRPF martyrs. © AP The Cricket Club of India (CCI) also removed the portrait of Pakistan PM Imran Khan from their restaurant wall. While the world was condemning the horrendous act, the Pakistan PM didn't even bother to comment on it which led to the CCI's move. "We condemn the terror activities carried out against our army and CRPF personnel. Though CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first even before sports," CCI Secretary Suresh Bafna had told ANI, while also suggesting to skip the Pakistan clash in the ICC World Cup in June. Amid growing calls for revenge, Indian cricket fans, too, have asked skipper Virat Kohli and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to boycott Pakistan at the World Cup in England and Wales. Expel the country Pakistan from every global arena, at first, expel them from ICC World cup 2019. It's mandatory. Separate them is every stage.ð ð¡ Jai Hind. #ICC we don't want to see Ind vs Pak match WC #ExposeDeshDrohis #PulwamaTerrorAttacks #ICC #BCCI pic.twitter.com/udBFAbUvpc — Shomedeep Mondal (@MondalShomedeep) February 17, 2019 @BCCI @imVkohli @RaviShastriOfc The general emotion of the Indian public is don't play Pakistan in world cup as well, let ICC award the 2 points to Pakistan.

  10. If you love Ryan Reynolds in and as 'Deadpool' and have wondered why there has been no 'desi' version of the Merc with a Mouth so far, then maybe this will give you your daily dose of laughter. A YouTube channel called 'Dablew Tee' has uploaded a 'desi' Deadpool swinging through the streets of Lahore and the video is hilarious. While the hunky Ryan is the anti-hero of everyone's dreams and is probably not the exact representation of cultural appropriation we might find suitable, this Pakistani Deadpool is downright funny. While you might imagine Wade Wilson stealing from bad people and driving a dope car, this one ends up stealing bananas and driving a broken motorcycle instead. © YouTube © YouTube This version is definitely funny and kind of made our day, ergo we thought we'd share the cheer with everyone. Wonder what Ryan Reynolds has got to say about it.
  11. A decision has been taken by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Pakistan Cricket captain Sarfraz Ahmed, who was incidentally caught barking racial slurs at South African all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo on 22nd January 2019 during the second ODI match at the Kingsmead Cricket Ground in Durban. After about a week of inspection, the ICC has finally decided to suspend Ahmed for four matches after he said: “Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya padhwa ke aaye hai aaj?". (Hey black guy, where's your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?) and everything was recorded by the stump microphones placed right in front of him. The suspension follows a wave of serious flak towards Ahmed and his comments which was spearheaded by the former Pakistani cricketer and all-time great Shoaib Akhtar, who uploaded a minute and a half long video from all his social media handles to publicly show his disgust with Ahmed's words and urge him to make a public apology as soon as possible. Surely, about 24 hours later, Ahmed did take to Twitter to address the whole issue but his comments felt less like an apology and more like him trying to dodge his way out by saying that his words were not supposed to be heard by any specific individual nor were they for the opposing team to understand and that whatever he said was out of sheer frustration. 1/2 - I wish to extend my sincere apologies to any person who may have taken offence from my expression of frustration which was unfortunately caught by the stump mic during yesterday's game against SA. My words were not directed towards anyone in particular and... — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 2/3 - I certainly had no intention of upsetting anyone. I did not even mean for my words to be heard, understood or communicated to the opposing team or the cricket fans. I have in the past and will continue in future to appreciate the camaraderie of my fellow cricketers from... — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 3/3 - ...across the globe and will always respect and honour them on and off the field. — Sarfaraz Ahmed (@SarfarazA_54) January 23, 2019 However, when the ICC made their decision to suspend Sarfraz for four games public, the Pakistan Cricket Board, in a statement on their website, said that they were utterly disappointed by this measure. “The PCB notes the ICC decision on Sarfaraz Ahmed with its utmost disappointment. PCB had anticipated that the matter had been resolved amicably between the two players and the two Boards following Sarafraz Ahmed's public apologies which were accepted by the player, the Board and South Africa cricket team,” reads the statement. The ICC has also ordered Ahmed to take up "an education programme to promote the understanding and awareness of issues directly relevant to the offence that he has committed”.
  12. We have come a long way since judging people on the basis of the colour of the skin and calling them out because of the way they look, or have we? South Africa, as a nation, has experienced probably the worst form of racism not too long ago when Apartheid was a part of their day-to-day life. Clearly, the memories of racism and discrimination continue to haunt them even now. Under such circumstances, the Pakistani captain and wicket keeper, Sarfraz Ahmed somehow got the brilliant idea to racially taunt the Proteas batsman Andile Phehlukwayo on Tuesday during the second ODI at the Kingsmead Cricket Ground in Durban. After the Pakistani batting order was totaled at 205 within 46 overs, it seemed like a cake walk for the South African batsmen to get over this below-average target but faced some early trouble as their openers Hashim Amla and Reeza Hendricks were sent back for cheap. While Rassie van der Dussen's 80-run performance at one-down was of huge significance, it was Phehlukwayo, who like a brick-wall, was glued to the pitch, determined to win this one for his side. Frustrated as the Pak bowlers were unable to get Phehlukwayo out, Ahmed let out a comment which would later get him into a lot of trouble. He said: "Abey kaale, teri ammi aaj kahaan baitheen hain? Kya padhwa ke aaye hai aaj?". (Hey black guy, where's your mother sitting today? What [prayer] have you got her to say for you today?) Sarfaraz Ahmed to Andile Phehlukwayo: "abbay kaale teri Ami kahan bethi hoyi hain aaj, kya parhwa kay aya hai aaj" "black man wheres your mother sat? What have you asked your mother to pray for you today?"#SAvPAK pic.twitter.com/vw6yuE73OE — Saj Sadiq (@Saj_PakPassion) January 22, 2019 Not that Phehlukwayo was able to understand what Ahmed said, but as fate had it, his racially motivated taunt got picked up by the stump mics and was immediately brought to shame by the Twitter world. Sarfraz Ahmed should be punished by @ICC @TheRealPCB for his raciast comments against South African Player — Farooq Murtaza (@farooqmurtaza1) January 22, 2019 Sarfraz Ahmed is nothing more than just another sorry excuse for a Kaptaan. Pathetic sportsman.#PAKvSA #SAvPAK — Ruffles (@aliakberhabib) January 22, 2019 Sarfraz Ahmed might be in trouble after his comments. He might have said it jokingly, but at present, such remarks are taken seriously. The world of sports don't take racist remarks lightly boy! #SAvPak — Faisal Caesar (@faisalyorker1) January 22, 2019 Hey @ICC, That's a gross racist remark by Pakistan Team's Captain Sarfraz Ahmed to Andile Phehlukwayo. Hope you'll take strict action against him. #SayNoToRacism #SAvPAK #PAKvSA https://t.co/H8wFmMJbCl — Sir Jadeja (@SirJadeja) January 22, 2019 Ultimately, Phehlukwayo not only succeeded in winning the match for the Proteas, he was also crowned the Man of the Match for his crucial 69* in 80 outing to win the second of five ODIs within 42 overs.

  15. Former South African captain, AB de Villiers is one of the most loved cricketers in the international scenario. His accomplishments as a batsman are unmatched and have helped him make a name for himself in every country that he has competed in. Last year, much to everyone's utter surprise, de Villiers made an out of the blue decision to retire from all formats of the sport on an international level, in a video he uploaded from his Twitter handle. I've made a big decision today pic.twitter.com/In0jyquPOK — AB de Villiers (@ABdeVilliers17) May 23, 2018 However, with the beginning of the New Year, de Villiers has decided to use his position in the cricketing world for a righteous cause. The South African has announced that he will be playing in the upcoming season four of the Pakistan Super League. Ever since the visiting Sri Lankan team's bus was attacked in Lahore in 2009, international level cricket has not taken place in the country due to safety concerns of the travelling players, with the exception of the Windies' visit for a three-game T20 series last year in April. In attempts to bring back international cricket to the country that worships the sport just as much as India, the Pakistan Cricket Board has been pushing for more and more PSL matches to be held inside the country rather than the UAE, where most of Pakistan's international level cricket competitions take place. De Villiers has decided to play in Pakistan, for the Lahore Qalandars, in the two matches that have been scheduled to take place at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore on 9th and 10th March. A special message from our mentor and player @ABdeVilliers17 “Main Lahore A Raha Hun” ð¤©#DamaDamMast #MainHoonQalandar pic.twitter.com/Ye8j65Jwxl — Lahore Qalandars (@lahoreqalandars) January 14, 2019 "I felt that I had this opportunity to maybe make an impact to help international cricket return to Pakistan," de Villiers told BBC World Service's Stumped programme. “I was reluctant to go a few years back when we were all a bit worried, but I feel the time is right to go back there.” If things go as planned, de Villiers will probably be the greatest international player in the last 10 years to have played in Pakistan. "I sympathise with the people of Pakistan because they have been cricket-starved for no fault of theirs, but I am optimistic that the days are not too far when international cricket will return to Pakistan and the stadia will once again be packed with crowds," de Villiers said in an interview with ICC.
  16. On one hand where people in some parts of the world are fighting each other in the name of religion, there are some who are setting great examples of communal harmony with their selfless deeds. For instance, this Muslim family in Pakistan that has been taking care of a church which is over a century old. For 100 years now, the custodianship of the St. Matthew's Church has been passed down from one generation to the other. YouTube/ BBC News Located in the picturesque Hazada District town of Nathia Galiyat in Pakistan, this church is currently being taken care of by Waheed Murad, the third generation caretaker in his family. Murad has been looking after the church for almost 17 years now. His grandfather and father looked after it for 35 and 45 years, repectively. In fact, Murad is proud of his work and says that he is the only person in his area who knows how to ring the church's bell. Murad's family has been looking after the church by themselves, because the governement didn't make any efforts since there are hardly any Christians in the area. Speaking to the local media, Murad said "We believe in all messengers of God and believe in all the holy books, hence we give the same respect to this church, as we give to our mosque." If only more people could think like Murad, the world will be a better place to live in.
  17. On January 3rd Pakistan declared Panj Tirath, an ancient Hindu religious site in Peshawar, as a heritage site and people on both sides of the border are lauding this gesture by the provincial Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government. Reportedly, a notification was issued under the KP Antiquities Act 2016 to get the encroachments cleared from the area and handed over to archaeologists, so that they could start the restoration work. Reuters (For Representation) Talking about the Panj Tirath, the heritage site got its name from the five pools of water present there. The site also includes a temple (which is said to be 1000 years old) and a lawn with date palm trees. The five pools now come under the Chacha Yunus Park and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In fact, the site has not only been declared as a heritage site, but the government has also announced that a fine of up to Rs. 2 million and 5 years of imprisonment will be charged against anyone who is found guilty of damaging the property. Pexels (For Representation) In 1747, the site was damaged by the Afghan Durrani dynasty and in the early 1800s, it was restored by the local Hindus during the period of the Sikh rule. According to mythology, it is believed that king Pandu from the time of Mahabharata belonged to this area and the Hindus would often come to bathe in these five pools during the month of Kartheek, and worship under the date trees. Twitter is flooded with posts appreciating and lauding this gesture. These are news we love to hear. Actions matter more than words.

  18. In what is turning out to be a scintillating tournament, the ICC Women's World T20 has finally found its semifinalists following some exciting contests in the group stage. While West Indies will be seen locking horns against Australia in the first semifinal, the Indian women's team will take on England in the second. And, the winners from the two crucial games will fight for the coveted trophy in the summit clash on 25th November. Ahead of the first semifinal, the ICC put out a poll on Twitter to ask fans who they thought would contest the all-important World T20 final. The governing body listed out four options: West Indies vs India, West Indies vs England, Australia vs India, Australia vs England. Who do you think will contest the @WorldT20 Final? ð¤ #WT20 — ICC (@ICC) November 18, 2018 While many cricket fans voted for their favourite option, the ones from Pakistan targetted the ICC for leaving out their national team from the Twitter poll.

The absolute state of these mentions! ð Pakistan didn't get out of the #WT20 group stage guys ð — ICC (@ICC) November 19, 2018 The four options listed out by the ICC in its Twitter poll were derived from the semifinalists who had progressed further in tournament. Surprisingly, the Pakistan cricket fans didn't realise that their national team crashed out of the tournament after losing to New Zealand in the group stage. The Pakistan cricket fans also misunderstood their No. 1 T20I ranking which is held by the men's side, and not women's who are currently languishing at the seventh spot. In what eventually turned out to be a forgettable tournament for Pakistan, the women's side had a tough time in their group where they were placed alongside Australia, India, New Zealand and Ireland. The team was completely outplayed by their opponents, winning just one match (against Ireland) and losing three in Group B.
  19. Foreign Office building in Islamabad, Pakistan. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday said that Pakistan does not agree with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson?s recent statement about Pakistan. In a town hall meeting with the employees of the US State Department, Tillerson had said that he does not enjoy the task of dealing with countries like Pakistan and North Korea. "We do not agree with the comments and perception of Secretary Tillerson," Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted. He further said that Pakistan has undertaken largescale operations against terrorists and their safe havens across the length and breadth of the country with notable success. "These operations are being carried out in our own national interest and Pakistan is determined to rid its soil of the scourge of terrorism and extremism." Do not enjoy dealing with Pakistan: US Secretary of State Tillerson?s statement was made during a town hall meeting held with employees of the US State Department According to the US Secretary of State, relations with Pakistan which he termed an important and valued partner had drifted and had to be brought back to one of common interest. Tillerson visited Pakistan in October and held meetings with the country?s top political and military leadership. "Pakistan is important regionally to our joint goals of providing peace and security to the region and providing an opportunity for greater economic relationship," Tillerson was quoted as saying during his meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. The US Embassy, in a statement released, said the secretary of state reiterated President Trump?s message that Pakistan must increase its efforts to ?eradicate militants and terrorists operating within the country?. ?The Secretary outlined the United States? new South Asia Strategy and the vital role that Pakistan can play in working with the United States and others to facilitate a peace process in Afghanistan that can bring stability and security to the region,? said the statement from the US embassy. During the meeting, Tillerson also expressed appreciation for Pakistan?s sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. ?The Secretary also expressed his gratitude to the Government of Pakistan and the Pakistani Army for their cooperation in securing the release of the Boyle-Coleman family from captivity,? added the statement.
  20. Often labelled as one of the most exciting and fiery draws in international cricket, the Super Four clash between India and Pakistan in the 2018 Asia Cup on 23rd September, failed to live up to the expectations, just like it did in the group stage earlier. Expected to be a livewire, Sunday's clash was nothing more than a damp squib. After a dismal show in the group-stage tie, the Pakistani cricket team was expected to take the field against India with more vigour, but it soon turned out to be yet another mediocre performance by Sarfraz Ahmed and his boys. Failing to negate the Indian bowlers, Pakistan crawled their way to a below-par total of 237 runs. And, while defending their score, Pakistan ran into the formidable opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, who ensured India didn't break a sweat to secure an emphatic nine-wicket win. Making a mockery of Pakistan's bowling attack, Rohit and Dhawan looked in majestic touch during their record-breaking 210-run opening stand, that laid the foundation of India's triumph in Dubai. Arguably one of the most prolific opening pairs in the modern era, Rohit and Dhawan eclipsed the 201-run partnership between Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag (against New Zealand in 2009) to register the highest opening stand by an Indian pair in run-chases. © Reuters It was India's biggest opening partnership against Pakistan in ODIs. The opening pair of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar previously held that record for their 159-run stand recorded in 1998. When it comes to the Asia Cup, the partnership between Rohit and Dhawan was also the highest opening stand in the history of the tournament. While Dhawan played a blistering knock of 114 runs before eventually being run-out in the latter stages of the game, Rohit remained unbeaten on 111 runs and cruised the Indian ship to a convincing victory. Though the Indian bowlers proved pivotal in the match, it was undoubtedly the 'Hitman & Gabbar Show' that completely nullified Pakistan. Ravi Shastri presents the Hitman & Gabbar Show.

Batting together at the top for India over the years, Rohit and Dhawan share a good rapport and complement each other both on and off the field. Following their triumph over arch-rivals Pakistan, the Indian openers were seen engrossed in a candid chat with coach Ravi Shastri. In a video shot by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Shastri switched his role from being a coach to a presenter, as Rohit and Dhawan revealed inside secrets about each other. © Twitter/@BCCI The prolific form of Rohit and Dhawan has been pivotal in India's unbeaten run at the Asia Cup. While Dhawan has amassed 327 runs including two hundreds in four games, Rohit has slammed 269 runs including two fifties and a ton in the tournament. And, the fact that these two batsmen currently lead the list of top run-getters in this year's Asia Cup goes on to show how good they have been for India. The two marauding openers will once again be expected to carry the baton for India when they take on Afghanistan on 25th September. Having decimated Pakistan, Team India has virtually secured their berth for the tournament's final which is scheduled to take place on 28th September..
  21. Indian cricket fans trolling the losing team and gloating about their country's victory is expected, because it happens almost every time India wins. But, we should always expect the unexpected because life can surprise us at any moment. No, that last line wasn't meant to be philosophical or anything, it's basically just about the unexpected thing that happened after the India vs Pakistan match yesterday. After Pakistan suffered a thumping loss at the hands of the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team, the Pakistan fans joined the Indians to troll the hell out of their own country, and that's not something you see every day. Last week, we all saw how Indians trolled the hell out of Pakistan (https://www.mensxp.com/social-hits/news/47423-india-won-the-match-against-pakistan-and-indians-won-twitter-with-all-the-jokes-about-it.html )after India's victory and this time, the Pakistani fans were so disappointed that they joined in as well.

  22. Almost 15 months ago, the Indian cricket team and their fans were forced to endure a heartbreak after the 'Men in Blue' lost the 2017 Champions Trophy final against Pakistan. Patiently waiting for revenge, the Indian cricket team returned the favour after deriving an eight-wicket win in the group stage clash at the ongoing Asia Cup. The Pakistani side had an opportunity to peg India back in the Super Four tie on 23rd September, but Sarfraz Ahmed's men just couldn't negate the rampant sub-continent giants. Restricted to a mediocre total of 237 runs, the Pakistani side once again fell short against India who chased down the target with nine wickets and 63 deliveries to spare. It was India's second successive win against Pakistan in the tournament, one that allowed Rohit Sharma & co to carry on their unbeaten run in the ongoing Asia Cup. Whether it was their prolific bowling display or strong batting performance, Team India ticked all the boxes which understandably called for celebrations. View this post on Instagram Happy Birthday @a.t.rayudu What followed was a typical cake smash #TeamIndia style ð ð A post shared by Team India (@indiancricketteam) on Sep 23, 2018 at 12:49pm PDT If their emphatic win over Pakistan gave them a reason to celebrate, the fact that Ambati Rayudu was also celebrating his birthday on Sunday, further saw Team India letting their hair down in the dressing room. Already in a joyous mood after thrashing their arch-rivals, the Indian cricketers celebrated Rayudu's birthday in style. Leading the animated celebrations, MS Dhoni was seen smearing Rayudu's face with the birthday cake as other Indian players joined in. In a series of photos shared by the Indian team on Instagram, the players were seen having a gala time as Rayudu got a 'cake facial'. © Twitter/@BCCI Jasprit Bumrah (2-29), Yuzvendra Chahal (2-46) and Kuldeep Yadav (2-41) hunted in packs as the Pakistani batting line-up failed to post a competitive total on the board. Not many runs to contend with, the Pakistani pace battery ran into all sorts of trouble with both Rohit Sharma (111*) and Shikhar Dhawan (114) giving India a rock solid 210-run opening stand. It was a clinical win for Team India who have now virtually sealed their berth in the tournament's final scheduled to be held on 28th September. Having lost against India, Pakistan will be eager to produce a better performance against Bangladesh, when they lock horns on 26th September. On the other hand, India will be seen plying their trade against Afghanistan on 25th September.
  23. When it comes to cricket, no match can ever even match up to the excitement of India playing against Pakistan. These are the only two teams that, when playing together, can make everyone from both sides of the border just sit in front of the TV, waiting for their country's win. This time, as we all know, India came out victorious and there were celebrations all around us. Obviously, Indians on Twitter celebrated the only way they know how to – making jokes at the expense of our neighbouring country. But, it's all cool, it's all in good fun. While we've seen all the jokes and memes, there was another highlight from the match that people couldn't help but talk about online, just because it was that heart-warming. It wasn't only India that won yesterday, even Yuzvendra Chahal won everyone's heart with his one kind gesture. During the match, he helped Pakistan's Usman Khan tie his shoelaces and it has garnered praise from everyone. Everyone knows that cricket is a gentleman's game and this one viral picture shows precisely why. People couldn't help but admire him.
