Anti-national BCCI wants Indo-Pak cricket on coffins of martyred Indian security-persons
Nothing can be more shameful that news about money-minting Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) desiring Indian government for permission for Indo-Pak cricket series in Srilanka in December 2015 came on notorious date of 26/11, the day on country was remembering brave Indian security-persons and those killed in Pakistan sponsored militant-attack on Mumbai 26.11.2008.

It is a perfect U-turn by BCCI just only after four months when BCCI refused Indo-Pak cricket ties on the plea that cricket and terror cannot run simultaneously. Now BCCI claims that politics and cricket should not be clubbed. But it is 'terror and cricket' and not 'politics and cricket'. If argument of BCCI is correct, then Indo-Pak cricket-series should not have been discontinued at any time even after 26.11.2008.

Since BCCI has political heavyweights cutting across party-lines including even from BJP, it is time President of India or Supreme Court may intervene to stop Indo-Pak cricket-series in case of any hypothetical approval from Indian government. We are proud of our Indian Hockey Federation which set up an example by asking Hockey India to stop participation of Pakistani players in Hockey India League in view of unprovoked firing and torture-killing of Indian soldiers by Pakistani army in January 2013. Could BCCI not exhibit same nationalist approach by making it a pre-condition to hand over master-minds of 26/11 Mumbai-attack and other notorious ones Dawood Ibrahim for starting Indo-Pak cricket ties?

Big question is why BCCI authorities remain so eager for Indo-Pak cricket ties when Pakistan adopts every type of enmity with India. How can BCCI even think of a relation between bat and bomb just for minting more and more money by its such an anti-national attitude? Rather diplomacy demands that financially troubled Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) may be allowed to go totally bankrupt by world's richest cricket body BCCI boycotting playing cricket matches with Pakistan. Indian government should also not allow easy visa to persons like Chairperson of Pakistan Cricket Board to ensure and express that Indian government may not allow Indo-Pak cricket ties till Pakistan learns to behave like a responsible nation.
