Dear India, Pakistan will not play cricket on your terms anymore

We have been taught since childhood, or at least I have been taught regularly, that two wrongs do not make a right. I believe the real message behind that age-old adage is to make a child understand that each problem needs to be dealt with separately. One cannot pile one ‘wrong’ over ‘another’ in the hopes of concocting a ‘right’. As a grown up and someone who is in their mid-20s, I understand that, but unfortunately, our 68-year-old noisy neighbour cannot.

Firstly, I do not categorise myself as an anti-Indian. I am merely critical of the Indian government policies which are unfair on the most part. Once again, after recent tensions at the border, and an attack on a village near the Indian border on Indian soil, the Indian government presented another lame excuse on the premise that terrorism and cricket together cannot exist together.

This particular argument is weird, not only because of the manner in which it is presented but also because of the entity which is presenting it. For a country that takes pride in calling itself the biggest democracy in the world, such actions where you ignore your present and avoid your past are more than just disappointing.

For a sports lover, nothing is better than watching a clash between two arch rivals going head to head in a home-and-away clash. However, the Indian government made sure that they would find a way to interlink politics and sports, which is highly disappointing. If that is to be the case, where a government is going turn a sport into a matter of war, then I believe that Pakistan’s government should step in, instead of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and say that cricket and terrorism cannot go forward together, as Pakistan has a far more genuine reason to use that statement.

Unless and until India stops its activism on the Line of Control (Loc), there won’t be any cricket. I believe that it’s about time that we as a nation should say it once for all and that we won’t play the game on your terms.

As far as I can understand, one thing that allowed the situation to deteriorate to this level is our apologetic posture, which never gave us the same power as the diplomats. We, as a nation, have always displayed an apologetic posture in terms of diplomacy and that has never really paid any dividend. India has always played on their front foot and has never allowed Pakistan any leverage, which we shouldn’t expect them to do anyway.

I find it funny that our accomplished and experienced Chairman of PCB, Shahryar Khan, had been very hopeful of the series materialising, even after repeated refusals from the other side. I find it even funnier that an experienced and well-informed Najam Sethi was even more adamant about the series taking place as per the plan. The other side was clear about the series not taking place. Where was his famous ‘chirya then? Since the two aforementioned gentlemen have exhibited loyalty to the state, I will not bash them and will only assume that naivety led them to believe in the commitments of their counterpart across the border.

I am convinced that all of this overhyped optimism is driven by the theory that playing against India is a way to attain economic success. Such an assumption may be correct, but the truth is that an arrangement with India keeps us on our guard at all times and that is problematic. Exhibiting enthusiasm in the field of cricket is great, but it should not come at the cost of our national integrity. I wish to ask our diplomats, government, and PCB officials why we cannot stand up and speak for what is right, especially when our hands are far cleaner than the ones on the other side of the border?

This question needs to be asked within our borders as well. When the Indian media can bash Pakistan and hold it responsible for any unfortunate event that happens to take place, then why does our media lack the necessary teeth to counter India’s offensive, despite being called Pakistan’s ‘teesri quwat’ (third force)?

Hearing allegation after allegation and seeing nearly every cricket series between the two neighbours undergo a war of sorts, one wonders why our sports ministry, the PCB, and government officials are so slow to react on the diplomatic and media front? Why are there are no counter allegations from our side?

Even if for the sake of argument, we accept that Pakistan is the cause of terrorism in India, that we support non-state actors and hence no cricket is possible, our diplomats, PCB officials and sports ministry should be able to put forth the assurance that we definitely are not the cause of terrorism.

Be it the admission of India’s current National Security Advisor (NSA) Mr Ajit Daval in a seminar where he confessed how India is involved in a proxy war in Pakistan which left thousands of Pakistanis dead, or be it the current tension on the LoC, Pakistani officials have an extremely strong argument, which is, if we ever had to play cricket against each other based on political matters, Pakistan would never want to play against India.

One thing that we need to learn from this is that we should not be tempted by the amount of money we can generate with a cricket series against India. Nothing comes at the cost of national integrity. It’s about time we inform them that we are not playing against them until they sort themselves out.

Enough is enough.

As for the PCB and the Pakistan cricket team, we should all sit around the table for the World T20 which is going to be held in India and chalk up a master winning plan for our team. That will be our chance to shine on the global stage. Winning against India on Indian soil will send the right message to everyone, regardless of the games being played; Pakistan will come out on top.

Let’s go there boys and win it all, win it for the men in green. Let’s win it for the brave men who protect us on our borders.

If you try to bring us down, we will rise,

If you try to break us down, we will shine,

Because we turn the tides around and do the impossible,

Because we are Pakistan.

    Dear Pakistan,

    It’s simple. Don’t play! Your politicians keep begging us. Why write a long letter? don’t play if you don’t want to play.


  • Karachiite

    Apparently Indian cricket board and Indian cricket team is more patriotic than rest of the country. May be that’s why they refuse to play with Pakistan while Pankaj Advani visits Pakistan for snooker championship.

    Obviously Virat Kohli is a better Indian than Pankaj Advani.Recommend

  • Minerva

    Now even North Korea will take lessons from Pakistanis on false bravado. Sir, India is not forcing you to play. It is PCB begging BCCI for the bilateral series. And on Pakistan winning T20 in India, it’s skills which win games not your lofty rhetoric.Recommend

    likewise, you should revive some public toilets in your own country.Recommend


    Azeem Siddiqui, your opinion of Pakistan playing or not playing according to terms set by India does not matter to anyone. It is the PCB that has to decide and if at all in a rare Indian goodwill gesture if BCCI agrees to PCB request of a bilateral series between the two nations, then PCB will go to any length and terms set by India to be part of the series cause of the huge amount involved. Azeem, it is the money and it matters a lot to PCB and not yours or my opinion. Recommend

    Pakistan can resist India and Indian terms , the world cricket accepts Indian terms , After all we rule the cricket world, we create most money through cricket !

    & ofcourse, the whole BJP party & Modi jee would have nothing to do with the whole incident.

    And yes your right,… IPL has made many millionaires…one big example is “Sreesanth” or the sataay baaz(Match fixers) sitting in dubai..really IPL has no boundries of making ppl rich.Recommend

    Hey…Pakistan offered to be a major exporter for “Onions” to india due to the Severe deficiency of Onions in India but Indians bought it on much more higher price from EGYPT. And look where it has got the Onion prices in India.

    Per reliable sources…due to the above situation & price hike…some people are actually investing in Onions in India(substituting Land/Gold).
    A bag full of Onion is also a popular Gift nowdays.

    so with that said…we did offer some trade…which our neighbor didn’t accept.Recommend

  • ABK Ind

    Well the author may be as a Pakistani you wont understand the Indian sentiments, historically all the wars fought by India & Pakistan have been initiated by Pakistan which has been admitted by your own ex generals but still Pakistanis call us as aggressors & enemies. I am not including the innumerable attacks be it on our Parliament or Mumbai that India has suffered.
    Today Pakistan is suffering from terrorism the same way as US is suffering from Taliban & Al Qaeeda, they made a Frankenstein for Political gains & now its back firing. Even if for a point of debate we still do agree that RAW is involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan, can you blame them or do you expect India to tolerate all infiltrations the 4 wars like mute spectator.
    Cricket is a passionate sport for India & Pakistan with lots of money involved in it. A nation thats least supportive to resolve terror issues facing India shouldnt expect much help in return as well. Finally the funniest part Pakistanis always claim to be supporters of muslims like in Kashmir, but you readily went hunting Ulghir Muslims in china only to please the Chinese masters so please dont preach us..Recommend

    2. Salim Malik – Caught in fixing and banned
    3. Miandad – Had close links with a shady underworld don Dawood and later translated these into relationship
    4. Butt, Asif & Aamir are the latest ‘achievers’.
    5. Wasim Akram – Had links with fixers through his brother. His house was stoned after Pakistan lost a (fixed) match with Bangladesh and he justified this as ‘losing to brothers’

    That is funny because India is not begging to play cricket against Pakistan. Pakistan cricket board is. When Pakistan plays India, PCB gets to make tons of money. It is all about money!
    I am just amused that Pakistanis berate indians for everything and then in the same breath accuse Indians of not playing cricket or not allowing Pakistani cricketers into the IPL!
    Let us be very clear.
    Pakistan considers India its enemy. Everything from policy level down to the level of an average Pakitani on the streets tells the same story: India is our eternal enemy.
    Why would you then want to play cricket with your enemy?
    INDIANS have now made it clear.

    That is made a little difficult when Osama bin Laden is found in the heart of Pakistan and when the so called “non state actors” (a euphemism for “terrorists in disguise”) are traced to the Pakistani soil.
    Pakistani officials can spend any amount of money trying to convince the world but the world believes that Pakistan harbors, trains terrorists.
    The man on whom there is a reward viz LeT chief Hafiz Saeed roams freely in Pakistan.
    And one of the perpetrators of Mumbai attacks, Lakhvi is also a free man in Pakistan.
    These things make Pakistan look bad internationally.

    “Even if for the sake of argument, we accept that Pakistan is the cause of terrorism in India, that we support non-state actors and hence no cricket is possible,…”

    Which world is the author living in…Dawood Ibrahim is not living in Pakistan is a theory only the Pakistanis believe in, Omar Saeed Sheikh is in a jail because he killed Daniel Pearl but where was he before the Indian plane IC 814 was hijacked, has the author also forgotten the reception given by the Pakistani masses to the Maulana Masood Azhar when he was set free by India to free its innocent civilians.

    Your own interior minister says 26/11 was planned in Pakistan, almost a decade later the same organisation works under a different name and its chief is invited on prime time to rant against India while carrying a ten million bounty on his head.

    Despite all this the author thinks the Pakistani hands are clean, Indian NSA did not accept that India was involved in any acts in Pakistan, it was a former intelligence chief who was giving a piece of his mind to deal with Pakistan who was later on chosen as Indian NSA, what’s wrong in it if India indeed is giving it back to you in kind, has Pakistan forgotten the days when India used to ask Pakistan to hold its fire on LOC to no avail.

    “instead of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and say that cricket and terrorism cannot go forward together, as Pakistan has a far more genuine reason to use that statement.”

    You are the only one to believe so, India does not ask you to fight the Maoists and neither does it blame Pakistan, India does not care who are you fighting against until you bring those culprits to book who are bleeding India.

    The bottomline is you are convinced of your innocence and the rest of the world is convinced of your duplicity, either way someone is wrong and if it is Pakistan, its enemies could not be more happier because nothing can beat a country better than its own.Recommend
