Comments on: Pakistan’s moment of triumph, and a question for the world Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 By: Rohit Thu, 25 Jun 2009 13:09:09 +0000 I’m ran is grammatically wrong it should be I’m running

By: Ashish Wed, 24 Jun 2009 08:58:24 +0000 I used to consider Shahid Afridi as a hopeless batsman. but the way he played in the finals shocked me. I had never seen him batting so sensibly. Good job Pakistani team. Congratulations :).
Being an Indian i support what Imran just said. I hope majority of Pakistani people also think like you Imran :).

By: Rohit S Wed, 24 Jun 2009 07:00:50 +0000 your right Imran, India is not only a very populated nation but also diverse in every aspect. hence, you will also see various opinions on every issue.

for eg i am also rohit and dont quite share the views of my fellow indian. However, Since the question is on whether international cricket should resume in Pakistan or not, as you have also said, pakistan is not ready for it now. Coz, cricketers can only ensure that a cup comes to pakistan, there are other who have to work in getting a tournament back to the nation.

lastly the way india is progressing economically, we cant afford an instable neighbor hence we only hope that the time comes soon when injternational cricket comes back to pakistan

I do not bother about others. Every Indian has freedom unlike in your case. Any Indian who understands what is terrorism would support that India does not maintain any relationship with Pakistan. And if India does not maintain relationship with Pakistan then the only sufferers would be paki sympathizer muslims residing in India.

Some things are forced on both the countries by US and both countries kneel and cower to the pressure. Like Zardari Manmohan talks… No full scale war post start of events in Kargill… Pakistan’s forced attack on Taliban etc with motivation, money and defense backing by American forces.

Imran, Mullah Omar/ Osama etc would have wiped out your country (Pakistan) if America was not there to support, motivate and force useless, good for nothing Gilani, Zardari, Kiyani and company to fight. You should in fact, thank White House 24 times a day, 365 days a year and thank America for delaying the catapult of your country (Pakistan) and giving fresh (and I hope small) lease of life for time being.

By: Imran Tue, 23 Jun 2009 21:21:20 +0000 To my Pakistani friends:
First of all congratulations to everyone. It was a badly needed victory and the team did it for us.

About Indian bitterness:
There are many, I repeat, many Indian cricket fans who have congratulated Pakistan and its team with real sportsmen spirit. Focus on them and ignore people like Rohit because he does not represent most if Indian cricket fans.
Just understand there are more than 1-billion people in India and there will be no shortage of low-lives like Rohit. Just ignore him: if u argue with him then he will take you to his level of bitterness and then beat you with experience… LOL

It is true that ground realities in Pakistan are not suitable for any foreign team to visit Pakistan. Lets hope that its gets better soon. That will be another slap on Rohit and likes.

By: Ali Raza Tue, 23 Jun 2009 17:08:26 +0000 For All Cricket lovers in world: I being a pakistani apperciate the achievement of Pakistan cricket team and now i am telling all other fans specially in india that cricket is a game its not war take it in positive sence and enjoy it, if You dont want to play with us ok this is your right, we also not so excited to welcome you. but accept the presence of others in cricketing world expand your mind, thoughts and approach

By: rajeev Tue, 23 Jun 2009 14:15:42 +0000 @Aamir Ali:

Congrats to Pakistani team for the cup! They deserved it. SL or Pak, the cup stays in Asia.

@Indian bitterness: Been there, done that, who knows better than Pakistan team. last cup final and this year warm up match.

@Rohit: I liked Rohit’s humor.

By: nagarjuna Tue, 23 Jun 2009 08:47:15 +0000 First congratulation Pakistan cricket players……. playing well get world T20 cup………

By: Asmat Jamal Tue, 23 Jun 2009 07:21:17 +0000 INDIANS appear to be quite sour over the victory of Pakistan. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

By: adeel ahsan Tue, 23 Jun 2009 03:19:24 +0000 Dont be sore losers just because you lost in the second round doesn’t mean you should bother Pakistan because we’re your neighbours. We snatched the cup from India fairly we deserved it previously and we did it this time. cheerrrrrrrrrrrrrrs
