UP Minister Mohsin Raza said- Dinesh Kaneria in Pakistan made Danish and Yusuf Yohana made Mohammad Yusuf
Shoaib Akhtar had said – Danish was a Hindu, so many players had a problem eating with him.
Danish Kaneria had said- I will reveal the names of the players who did not talk to me
Dainik BhaskarDec 28, 2019, 08:10 AM IST Sports Desk. Uttar Pradesh minister Mohsin Raza said on Friday that former spinner Danish Kaneria is discriminated against in Pakistan for being Hindu. If they want, they can come to India under the citizenship law. The former Pakistani captain said that if Hindus do not get support in Pakistan, Danish would not be able to play for 10 years. Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar had said in a TV chat show on December 22 that Danish was a Hindu, so many players objected to having dinner with him. On Thursday, Danish also said that Shoaib's statement was correct.
Mohsin Raza tweeted, "Dinesh Kaneria was made Danish, Yusuf Yohana was made Mohammad Yusuf. When so many distinguished people have been discriminated against, how much ordinary citizens are tortured in Pakistan can be gauged. Under our culture of Vasudev Kutumbakam, we appeal to such oppressed people to apply for citizenship of our country. We will respectfully grant citizenship of India. "
Courage to tell the truth in Shoaib: Danish
Kaneria said, "Shoaib is a great player. He has the courage to tell the truth. While I was playing, I did not have the courage to tell the truth on these issues. But after Shoaib Bhai's statement, I will also speak. Enji Bhai (Inzamam-ul-Haq), Mohammad Yusuf and Younis Bhai (Younis Khan) also always supported me. I will bring the name of those people who discriminated against me.
This is the real face of Pakistan: Gambhir Gambhir told the news agency, "This is the real face of Pakistan. We had Mohammad Azharuddin. He captained the Indian team in the 80–90 Test. Today he has a player (Imran Khan) as the Prime Minister. Yet people in their country have to go through this. This is the reality of Pakistan. Kaneria has played 60 matches for Pakistan and it is a shame to treat them like that.
Danish Kaneria was the second Hindu player after Anil Dalpat to play in the Pakistan team. He took 261 wickets in 61 Tests for Pakistan. Danish played 18 ODIs, with 15 successes.
