Indian cricketers slam Imran Khan over speech at UNGA

New York: Pakistan has been facing humiliation from all over the world for Imran Khan’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) last week.

The cricketer-turned Prime Minister Imran Khan spoke about nuclear threats and hatred at UNGA instead of speaking on developments in Pakistan. The world is raged and has been slamming Khan over his beggarly statements.

The Indian cricketers including Harbhajan Singh, Mohammad Shami and Irfan Pathan slammed Imran Khan and expressed their anguish on Twitter.

“At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan’s choice of words ‘bloodbath’ ‘fight to the end’ will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson I expect him to promote peace,” Harbhajan tweeted.

“Mahatma Gandhi spent his life spreading the message of love, harmony and peace. @ImranKhanPTI from UN podium issued despicable threats and spoke of hatred. Pakistan needs a leader who talks development, jobs & economic growth, not war & harbouring terrorism #india,” Shami tweeted.

“At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan’s choice of words ‘bloodbath’ ‘fight to the end’ will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson I expect him to promote peace,” Irfan Pathan wrote.

American anchors humiliated the cricketer-turned-prime minister for his latest gaffe on live television and Virender Sehwag shared that video on Twitter with the caption, “You sound like a welder from the Bronx, says the anchor. After the pathetic speech in the UN a few days ago, this man seems to be inventing new ways to humiliate himself.”

Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, on Thursday, joined Virender Sehwag in slamming Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and replied to Sehwag’s tweet, “Viru .. I see this and I am shocked ..a speech which is unheard of .. a world which needs peace, Pakistan as a country needs it the most .. and the leader speaks such rubbish ..not the Imran khan the cricketer world knew ..speech in UN was poor.”

Imran Khan mocked the infrastructure in the United States, saying “You have to go to China and see the way their infrastructure is. In New York, I am watching the car bumping around here.”

The anchors blasted Imran Khan by saying “You don’t sound like the prime minister of Pakistan, you sound like a welder from the Bronx”.
