Indian cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir calls to excommunicate Premier Imran Khan from the international cricketing fraternity. Gambhir’s hostile reaction followed PM Khan’s fearless and impassioned speech at the 74th UNGA session.
While PM Khan’s maiden speech garnered PM Khan global appreciation, Gautam Gambhir is in the furor, mainly because PM Khan had taken to cleaners RSS and BJP government at the world forum for breeding religious extremism and jingoism in India, and for its illegal annexation of IOK.
Still a better cricketer than you ever were. https://t.co/OIrses8Mr7

PM Khan had called out the intent of ethnic cleansing of Muslims by the Bharatiya Janata Party, of which he is a serving parliamentarian. In his bizarre statement, he described Imran Khan as the ‘role model of terrorists’.
Hence, he must be expelled from the cricketing fraternity as a punishment for supporting terrorism, asserted Gambhir. He argued that PM Khan undermined his stature of a role model is a former cricketer. Gambhir’s tweets described Imran Khan as unethical, and a person of weak character.

He even called Pakistan’s announcement to invite former Indian PM Manmohan Singh for Kartarpur Corridor’s inauguration on 550th Baba Guru Nanak birth anniversary, a political move. Adding that, It is up to Congress to decide whether they want to send Manmohan Singh or not. Navjot Sidhu went and hugged General Bajwa and only one person opposed the move- Captain Arminder Singh.

Gautam Gambhir’s scorn for Pakistan is old. On multiple occasions, he has posted unwarranted hateful tweets against Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi, since he too has been vocal on Kashmir issue globally. The former Indian cricketer jeered at Pakistan for providing foolproof intense security to the Sri Lankan team, who is currently on a visit to Pakistan, amid the allegation of bluffing several flat buyers in Delhi and embezzling millions from them.
The Delhi Police has filed a supplementary charge sheet before a city court against cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir and several others for alleged criminal breach of trust and cheating flat buyers.
