Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr Imran Khan for his ‘minority’ comment. PM Imran Khan last week attacked Narendra Modi and said that, he will show Modi government how to treat minorities. Khan’s statement came after Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah faced backlash for criticising mob violence in India.

Mohammad Kaif took to his official Twitter handle, the right-handed batsman said, “There were around 20% minorities at the time of Partition in Pakistan,less than 2% remain now. On the other hand minority population has grown significantly in India since Independence. Pakistan is the last country that should be lecturing any country on how to treat minorities.”

 

Naseeruddin Shah speaking to media on December 20 said, “I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if a mob surrounds them and asks, ‘Are you a Hindu or a Muslim?’ they will have no answer. It worries me that I don’t see the situation improving anytime soon.”

Shah became the target of online trolls as well as right wing groups, with many accusing him of being a traitor and an anti-national.

Shah replying to the trolls on December 21 said, “What I said earlier was as a worried Indian. What did I say this time that I am being termed as a traitor? I am expressing concerns about the country I love, the country that is my home. How is that a crime?”
