Former India player Mohammed Kaif was disturbed by the many tragic news and wished Allah showed mercy on everyone on this Eid.

“Very disturbing day. Picked newspaper, news of floating dead bodies on front page, death of young children at Gaza on foreign page even sports page offered no respite - TT legend Chandra no more, dear friend RP lost his father. This Eid may Allah show his true mercy more than ever,” Kaif said.
