Bad sport by India

Sports can unite people from all around the world for a healthier tomorrow, but India is adamant about politicizing games. Pakistan’s blind cricket team has recently been denied a visa by India, and as a result, Pakistan will not be competing in the Blind Cricket World Cup. The Indian High Commission in Islamabad asserted that because India has forbidden sports competitions with Pakistan, it is unable to grant visas. The Pakistan Cricket Team was a strong contender to win the World Cup, according to the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council, but the Indian government’s reluctance to grant them a visa ruined their chances.

Action should definitely be taken against India. The Blind Cricket World Cup has begun in India, and Pakistan had to face South Africa in its opening encounter on December 7. Meanwhile, India’s longtime adversary was scheduled to play a pivotal match on December 8. The Indian authorities baulked at issuing visas to the Pakistani squad out of fear. India’s stance toward Pakistan in general and sports, in particular, is reflected in its animosity. Although it is natural that India has always been antagonistic to Pakistan on the political and diplomatic fronts, its actions have extended to the world of sports as well. Sports organisations who work to promote sports and international peacekeeping organisations should be aware that India is attempting to politicise sports in order to distort world affairs. The Indian government’s actions should be universally condemned, and it should be pressured to stop taking any more steps that can incite unrest in the region.
