Fahad Mustafa accuses Harsha Bhogle of ‘hypocrisy’

Fahad Mustafa accuses Harsha Bhogle of ‘hypocrisy’

 Pakistan  Pakistan

Former Pakistan pacer Waqar Younis sparked a controversy with his remarks after Team India’s loss against Pakistan in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

“The best act of Rizwan was when he offered namaz on the ground in front of Hindus. That was very special for me,” Waqar said.

On Waqar’s statement, Bhogle tweeted and said, “For a man of Waqar Younis’ stature to say that seeing Muhammad Rizwan offering namaz in front of Hindus was special to him, is indeed the most disappointing thing I have ever heard. A lot of us have tried very hard to play such things down and bring the sport up. However, hearing this is terrible.”

Many people, in the comment section of Bhogle’s tweet, were disappointed with Waqar’s comment. They called his statement “communal” and alleged him of “bringing religion into sports”.

Bhogle remarked that Waqar’s statement was “terrible to hear”.

Fahad Mustafa responded to the famous Indian cricket commentator, Harsha Bhogle, after he demanded an apology from Waqar Younis for his namaz comments.

He wrote, “It is equally hard for us to see muslims being shown as terrorists in every Bollywood movie for the longest. I cannot imagine how embarrassing and difficult it must be for Muslims of India to watch themselves being ridiculed in that style.”

It merits mentioning that Younis apologised for his comments. Taking to his official Twitter handle, Younis said, “I said something in the heat of the moment. I uttered something which I did not mean to say – but, it has hurt the sentiments of many. So, I apologise for this. I want to tell everyone that this was not intended at all. Sports unites people regardless of their colour, race, or religion.”
