New Delhi: AIMIF chief Asaduddin Owaisi has always been in the news for his statements. Now, this time also, he has made a statement that has put him in the limelight. In fact, he has given a befitting reply to Pakistan's Home Minister Sheikh Rashid and his reply is currently part of the headlines. In fact, Pakistan's victory against India in the T20 World Cup match by Sheikh Rashid was described as a "victory for Islam." His statement was followed by an uproar and now Asaduddin Owaisi has termed him as "mad" over the same statement.
"A minister of our neighbouring country said that Pakistan's win against India in the #T20WorldCup match was a victory for Islam...What does Islam have to do with cricket matches?": AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi in Muzaffarnagar (27.10) pic.twitter.com/MV8Qz15ci8— ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) October 27, 2021
Addressing a rally in Muzaffarnagar, UP, Owaisi said, 'What does Islam have to do with cricket matches?' He further said, 'Thank Allah, our elders did not go to Pakistan, otherwise we would have to see these madmen.' You must be aware that Sheikh Rashid linked the Pakistan team's victory to Islam and said, "The Pakistan team was accompanied by the Spirit of Muslims from all over the world, including Indians.''
In fact, Pakistan won the World Cup after the match and Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan had also taken a dig at it. In a statement, he had said, "This is not the right time to improve relations with India.'' Not only that, he had even said, 'I know this is not the right time to talk to India after the defeat in the cricket match against Pakistan last night, but I imagine. If somehow we can resolve the issues. There is only one issue and that is Kashmir.'
