Indian refusal to grant visas to Pakistani team, ‘Politics should not be brought into sports’
Pakistan has expressed regret over India not granting visas to the blind cricket team.
Responding to the Indian High Commission’s non-issue of visas to the Pakistani blind cricket team, the spokesperson of the Foreign Office said that politics should not be brought into sports and informed India of its disappointment over the non-issuance of visas.
The Indian High Commission in Islamabad formally informed the Pakistan Blind Cricket Council and asked to receive the passports of the Blind Cricket Council.
The Indian High Commission took the stand that there are no sports activities with Pakistan, they cannot issue visas due to the lack of sports activities.
Chairman Pakistan Blind Cricket Council demanded the World Blind Cricket Council to take action against India for playing politics in the game.
It should be noted that the Blind Cricket World Cup has started in India. Teams from India, Pakistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Nepal are to participate in the Blind World Cup.
In the World Cup, Pakistan had to play its first match against South Africa on December 7, while the traditional rival India had to play a big match on December 8. Jamshed Hamayun.
