Waqar was surrounded in his own country
Waqar Yunus was surrounded in his own country after his statement. Pakistan Cricket Board chief Rameez Raja said that there was no surprise at all. I can tell from my own experience that a man who is racist about the languages and cities of his country can easily make such negative comments about religious differences.
Regarding this comment of Waqar, Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle had said that I am sure that Waqar will apologize for this, we have to unite the cricket world, not divide it on the basis of religion.
