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
Former Indian cricketer Madan Lal said- I saw discrimination against Hindus on Pakistan tour
Dainik BhaskarDec 27, 2019, 04:30 PM IST New Delhi. BJP MP Gautam Gambhir reacted to former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria in a discrimination case due to his being a Hindu. Gambhir said on Friday that this is the real face of Pakistan. It is shameful to have such discrimination against a player who has represented the country in many matches. 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.
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.
Imran is the Prime Minister, yet there is discrimination
"We had Mohammad Azharuddin," Gambhir told the news agency. 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.
Pakistan team has only two Hindu players so far
Former Indian cricketer Madanlal said, "The lack of education is a big difference between India and Pakistan." So far only two Hindu players have got a place in the Pakistan team. I have noticed that whenever a Hindu player represents Pakistan, he is more attracted to us. That Hindu player likes to talk to us. Whenever I visited Pakistan. I saw discrimination against Hindus there. "
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.
