In the heat of the moment, I said something which I did not mean which has hurt the sentiments of many. I apologise for this, this was not intended at all, genuine mistake. Sports unites people regardless of race, colour or religion. #apologies 🙏🏻— Waqar Younis (@waqyounis99) October 26, 2021

For a person of Waqar Younis' stature to say that watching Rizwan offering namaz in front of Hindus was very special to him, is one of the most disappointing things I have heard. A lot of us try hard to play such things down and talk up sport and to hear this is terrible.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 26, 2021
"Hinduon ke beech me khade hoke namaaz padi, that was very very special for me" - Waqar .— Venkatesh Prasad (@venkateshprasad) October 26, 2021
Takes jihadi mindset of another level to say this in a sport. What a shameful man.
