If South Africa can be banned for apartheid, why not Pakistan for terrorism: Mohammad Kaif calls for strong action

Kaif said that racism is a serious issue but terrorism is an even bigger issue and a country that indulges in terrorism should be dealt with in the most severe way.

Cricketer Mohammad Kaif has called out for severe action against Pakistan in the wake of Pulwama terrorist attack. The cricketer reminded via Twitter how India had boycotted South Africa and had severed all trade ties with the country following the ICC ban on South Africa over the South African government’s apartheid policy.

Kaif said that racism is a serious issue but terrorism is an even bigger issue and a country that indulges in terrorism should be dealt with in the most severe way. There are speculations that India might consider withdrawing from the 2019 ICC world cup to boycott playing with Pakistan.

While cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar spoke in favour of playing with Pakistan saying that this would only help Pakistan in the World Cup, there were others like Harbhajan Singh, Sourav Ganguly who supported an absolute boycott. Captain of India Cricket team Virat Kohli said that he stands by what the nation wants. “Our sincere condolences to the families of CRPF soldiers who lost their lives in Pulwama attack. We stand by what the nation wants to do and the BCCI decides to do. We will go by what the government and the Board decides, we will respect that”, Kohli said.
