Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has been having a total breakdown over coronavirus outbreak. Recently, Akhtar took to his YouTube channel to question the Chinese for eating non-halal animals like bats and then spreading the virus across the globe.

While he has edited the original video uploaded on his channel to remove the criticism of Chinese eating habits, the longer version of the video shows Akhtar talk about the Chinese eating the bats. “Mujhe samajh nahin aa rahi, ki Allah ne halal jaanwar banaye hai, to halal jaanwar kha lo. Zaruri hai chamkadar hi khaane hai? Unki urine peena hai, unka khoon peena hai aur poore duniya mein virus phaila dena hai. Main Chinese ki baat kar raha hoon. Mujhe samajh nahin aati jab itna Allah ne livestock diya hai halal maal mein se, woh kha lo. Kaunsa kha rahe hai? Chamkadar, kutte, billiyan kha rahe hai. Mujhe samajh nahin aa rahi poori duniya ko at stake mein le aaye hai Chinese. (I do not understand that when Allah has given halal animals, then eat halal animals. Is it necessary to eat bats? Drink their urine, their blood and then spread the virus across the world? I am talking about the Chinese. I don’t understand when Allah has given so much halal meat in livestock, eat that. Instead what are they eating? Bats, dogs, cats. I don’t understand how the Chinese have put the entire world at stake),” Akhtar said in his now edited rant.

He again reiterates how eating halal animals never led to such a problem but then the Chinese had to eat the bats and dogs. This outburst against the Chinese eating habits was followed by his raking up the Kashmir issue amidst the pandemic.

With coronavirus outbreak, nations across the globe are taking precautionary measures to contain the spread of virus including self-imposed quarantine and lockdown. Pakistan, which refused to evacuate its own citizens from Wuhan when the crisis first hit, has been acting quite salty over the pandemic.

Day after the Pakistani representative in the SAARC nation video conference to combat coronavirus raked up Kashmir issue and politicised healthcare, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar took to Twitter to compare coronavirus related preventive lockdown to the lockdown in Kashmir for internal security reasons.

Netizens were quick to point out one of the major reasons for lockdown in Kashmir has been Pakistan-sponsored terrorism in the valley.

Some even pointed out how Kashmir and Kashmiris are safe and asked about the Pakistanis stuck in China.

Kashmiris also expressed their anger for being the victim of Pakistani-sponsored terrorism for decades.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan chose to stay away from the video conference of SAARC leaders initiated by PM Modi to combat coronavirus. Moreover, Khan’s representative in the meeting, Dr Zafar Mirza, who also raked up Kashmir issue in the video conference, is now himself under probe over allegations of smuggling 20 million face masks out of Pakistan.

The Rawalpindi Express may do himself good to introspect before leaving the station in a hurry.
