• Shoaib Akhtar criticised for mocking Pak cricket on Indian show

    Maverick former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar's remarks mocking the state of affairs in Pakistan cricket on a popular Indian comedy show have evoked angry reactions from ex-players and officials in Karachi. Akhtar appeared with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on the 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' show in India and some of his stinging remarks about the state of national cricket and his making fun off a former PCB head have not been well received in Pakistan. "I don't know why he was so critical about Pakistan cricket on an Indian channel because I know that he is a patriotic Pakistani when he played for the national team," former Test pacer Sarfraz Nawaz said.

  • For special treatment, go to Pakistan: Shiv Sena tells Muslims

    Mumbai: “If the Muslim community in India want any special treatment as Muslims, they should go to Pakistan,” the Shiv Sena warned. “If they (Muslims) want anything from this country, they must first accept India as their motherland and proclaim ‘Vande Mataram’.
