Pakistanis like Javed Miandad are not half harmful as our own Jihadi minded politicians like Akbaruddin of MIM.As regards Miandad as a match fixer,has not Congress party got,Azharuddin as an MP,who was given ticket knowingly about his nefarious activities.
The Congis get to appease and get more minority votes in the name of Aman ki Aasha. On the other hand Javed got his visa and can come visit us anytime (and probably run some of Dawood's dhanda from India, while he is visiting).
>> How the heck can you give visa to someone related to Dawood?
Osama bin Laden's relatives come and go as they please in Europe and the U.S.! Being related to a criminal does not make you a criminal, but one cannot guarantee the safety of any relative of Dawood in India. He was wise not to come.
Minister of State for Home R P N Singh had said, "He is a well known cricketer. His visa application papers were in order and valid and that is why the government has decided to give him visa."
He is very well known Match Fixer .So why invite a Match fixer when Fixings are not our intentions ?
All this mollycoddling of all things Pakistani must stop. Enough is enough. I wonder why we allowed their Cricket team to play in India - when all other major issues are in a peretual logjam.
Just as South Africa and once even the USSR were banned from all major sporting events - even the Pakistanis should get the cold shoulder.
Only then wl these thick skinned folk get a message. You just cannot deny that politics and sports ARE related.
