Pakistan no match for Indian wrestlers

Tourists win final Dangal event in Faisalabad.

Express November 23, 2011

LAHORE: Satindar Singh won the third and final encounter of the Indo-Pak Dangal in Faisalabad, defeating Pakistan’s Ali Imran Pattanwala in a highly convincing show to lead India to victory in the wrestling event.

Singh remained unbeaten in all the three matches he took part in.

The final match of the event proved to be a one-sided affair as Pattanwala looked out of sorts against a more confident Singh. The Pakistan wrestler tried to adopt a defensive approach to slow the match down. However, Singh proved to be too good for Pattanwala and managed to pin him down to register the victory just minutes after the match started.

The other wrestler in the India contingent, Jagroop Singh, suffered an injury early in the event and was ruled out of the competition.

Actually Syed - original punjab consists of Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, New Delhi and part of UP. There is over 100M punjabis in its not that bad for Pakistan if you compare numbers - as they are roughly even.

I am an Indian and find your comment & mentality LOATHSOME. The spirit of sportsmanship is what counts, not who won. Please read the manifesto of the revived Olympics, held in 1896.

Please also try and become a human being before you use words to injure others without cause. The power of speech and communication by written word is unique to humans and is therefore a Divine gift. Kindly try to remember that when the impulse to injure strikes you.

If you are so proud to be Hindu or Sikh, then remember that your God sees all with the same love: samadarshi, never as Pakistani, Muslim, Christian, believer, infidel etc. Those categories are created by the diseased human imagination.
