Pulwama attack: Cricket Club of India expresses its anger by covering Imran Khan’s portrait in its restaurant

The CCI president said that since there has been no reaction from Imran Khan as the PM of Pakistan, the club decided to go ahead with the move

Exhibiting its anger in the aftermath of the dastardly Pulwama attack, the Cricket Club of India (CCI) covered a portrait of former cricketer and current Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in one of its restaurants.

Confirming the development, CCI President Premal Udani said, “See, CCI is a sports-club and we have photographs of past and present cricketers from all countries. We wanted to show, in our way, displeasure, on whatever is happening right now. It is a mark of protest. We have covered it as of now but can’t say right now if we would take it down.”

“We respect Imran Khan’s cricket credentials but at the same time he is Pakistan PM & we’re just showing our solidarity for our forces & our country”, Udani furthered.

On February 14, 42 CRPF paramilitary troopers were killed in a terror attack while several others critically injured, following what is being termed as the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan-based terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for it.

In the wake of the ghastly terror attack, Udani said that as a sports club CCI refrains from mixing politics with sports but seeing the current situation where Pakistan is in a proxy war with India, and there has been no reaction from Imran as the PM of the nation, the club decided to go ahead with the move.

The CCI, which is an affiliated unit of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), is home to the iconic Brabourne Stadium, which has hosted many test matches and is considered to be a cricketing hub.

Imran’s portrait is one amongst the many portraits of legendary cricketers across eras and from all nations, the CCI premises, including its restaurant, is decorated with.

In between immense pressure to stop breeding terrorism on Pakistan soil, PM Imran Khan is yet to break his silence on the cowardly Pulwama attack. Meanwhile the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi has assured vengeance. Relating to the Nation’s fury, Narendra Modi stated that full freedom has been given to our armed forces to exact revenge from Pakistan.
