Read it down below!
“I felt that it was wrong to indulge in India-Pakistan rhetoric here [in Tokyo] at the Olympics because all countries are here. It [the rivalry] is there in cricket because only 8-10 countries play the game. It’s fine.”
“His [Arshad Nadeem’s] performance was very good too. But he couldn’t win a medal. It would have been good if he too had won from an Asian country.”
“He congratulated me when we sat together on the bus. He was telling me about that photo from the Asian Games [which went viral] and he said that people in Pakistan equate us to Abdul Khaliq and Milkha Singh.”
“I told him that he is looking tagra (strong) in his national costume. He did well and I wished him all the best for the future.”
