Kapil Dev got angry over a question by a Pakistani scribe
Cricket legend Kapil Dev on Tuesday lost his cool at the Kabaddi World Cup media conference in Mumbai, where he was the chief guest when a scribe asked why Pakistan had not been invited to take part in the tournament to be held from October 7 in Ahmedabad.
“If you are a Hindustani you should not ask the question at all. Is it the time to ask this question?” he asked fuming, obviously referring to the deadly fidayeen attack by militants suspected to be from Pakistan-based JeM on Sunday at Uri, which left 18 soldiers dead.
On Sunday early morning a four men suicidal squad of Pakistani terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad attacked the Indian Army’s Uri tent in Kashmir, close to Line of Control (LOC). The attack enraged Indian citizens. 17 soldiers were killed in the attack.
Kapil, who had unveiled the Indian team’s jersey at the conference, also said, “Such things should be left to the government to decide. As sportsmen representing the country, if we are told to jump into a pond, we will readily do it.”
Total 12 teams including India, are to take part in the third edition of the tournament and the list does not include Pakistan.
The tournament had been held in 2004 and 2007 prior to the upcoming edition.
On September 22, Kapil Dev will attend the first Test of the New Zealand series at Green Park, Kanpur to mark India’s 500th Test. BCCI invited all Indian Test captain to celebrate the match.
