PAK legend calls India unsafe, asks ICC to stop nations from touring

Legendary Pakistan batsman and controversy's favourite child Javed Miandad once again stirred a controversy when he called India unsafe to play cricket and asked the ICC to stop nations from touring India.

The heart of the matter:

Former Pakistan cricketer invited controversial clouds when he went on to attack India by calling the country unsafe for any sort of cricketing actions to take place. Javed Miandad quoted “My message to ICC, please stop all the playing countries [from] touring India. Now you can see, now [we] will see the justice from ICC, what are they going to do and what they are going to say to the world” to PakPassion.net.

Javed Miandad launched this attack on India in the midst of on-going CAA protest in the country. He went on to add further “ICC, come forward and tell all the world, all the people who are members with the ICC, they must tell all the countries [to] stop playing any games in India because India is [no longer] a safe country. Other countries are better than India because there they are fighting with the people, their own people. Look at that, what’s going on? Must take action.”

Background of the story:

The PCB chief Ehsan Mani recently claimed that instead of Pakistan being unsafe for cricket, ICC should scrutinize their neighbours India to play cricket given the ongoing protests due to the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Now Ehsan Mani has got a supporting voice in one of the greatest batsmen of all time and former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad.

What's Next?

It would now be interesting to see the reaction of BCCI and how former Indian cricketers react to it. Moreover, ICC also is yet to release a statement over it and it would be particularly interesting to see what the apex cricketing body has to say about it.
