After the banned Talibani outfit Tehreek-e-Taliban warned the Pakistani media groups to refrain from praising the Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, the Karachi national stadium seeks to display the master blaster’s image in their office gallery.
The extensive coverage of Sachin Tendular’s retirement from international cricket by the Pakistani newspapers and TV stations had irked the militant leader who posted a video message on YouTube citing it as an analogy for the way the Pakistani media covered Mehsud’s death.
When Tendulkar retired from international cricket, Shoeb Ahmad revealed that he wanted to put up a photograph of the cricket legend as mark of respect to the batsman.
Just like Ehsaan Arain, people in Pakistan love to talk about cricket and are not afraid to showcase their love for Sachin Tendulkar. His simplicity and ability to stay out of controversy during his 24-year long cricketing career has attracted plaudits from all over the country.
