Not scared of Shiv Sena threats: Zaka Ashraf

Indian govt gave clearance to Pakistan team, both countries will have to look for each other’s benefits, says Zaka.

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Zaka Ashraf said on Thursday that the board was not scared of threats from, Shiv Sena and advised party chief Bal Thackeray to renounce extremism and move forward with positive thinking, Express News reported.

Speaking to the media in Rawalpindi, Ashraf said that the Indian government had given clearance to the Pakistan cricket team and that both the countries will have to look for each other’s benefits.

He said that the PCB was holding talks with foreign cricket boards in order to revive international cricket in Pakistan.

Ashraf refused to mention any country that was planning to play in Pakistan because, he said, the forces planning against it will become active.

Shiv Sena threats may have failed to convince the India cricket board to shun the hugely-anticipated tour in December but it may put the return of Pakistan cricketers in the billion-dollar Indian Premier League (IPL) in jeopardy.

The improving ties between the Pakistan and India cricket boards, which resulted in the confirmation of a short series between the archrivals in December, also made the possibility of Pakistan players featuring in the IPL ‘higher than ever’. The last time Pakistan cricketers took part in the IPL was in 2008.

Vivek. Why are you crying? I just said I believe your Government, and not you, to be representative of majority of Indians as India is a democracy. Is there a rocket science involved in understanding this algorithm? If you really do not want Pakistanis on your soil, tell this on Indian forums so that your Govt. listen to you (and your majority as you claim) and block Pakistani incoming on Indian soil. Ranting on Pakistani forums won't lead you anywhere.

@Rest of the Indians

I hope you guys are keeping track of the ongoing discussion between me and "another pakistani". The logic used above by this person, is exactly the one used by saudi arabia and pakistan, when the Mumbai attacks happend, and is as follows:

YOUR SECURITY FORCES COULD NOT PREVENT THE ATTACK SO IT IS YOUR FAULT. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

Your foreign office issued the visa, so it is your fault... .. Cool.
