This time Member of Parliament of India Gautam Gambhir has called out for the expulsion of Imran Khan from the sports community over his alleged irresponsible comments over India and Islamic radicalization.
The former Indian cricketer took on the social media to voice out his concern against Former Pakistani cricketer and now Prime minister.
Sportspeople are supposed to be role models. Of good behavior. Of Team spirit. Of ethics. Of strength of character. Recently in the UN, we also saw a former sportsperson speak up. As a role model for terrorists. @ImranKhanPTI should be excommunicated from sports community.

Recently, both the leaders from Pakistan and India were called in United nations, and over there both the South Asian nations voiced out their concerns.
Meanwhile, India did not mention Pakistan in its speech even once. Whereas, Imran Khan belittled the claim that the Islamic radicalization has been one of the reasons behind contemporary terrorism.
Moreover, Khan also accused India of human rights violations in Kashmir, and allegedly killing the spirit of democracy by abrogating Article 370 in Kashmir.
“In all human communities, there are radicals, there are liberals, and there are moderates. All human communities … no religion preaches radicalism. The basis of all religions is compassion and justice, which differentiate us from the animal kingdom,” Khan said.
“Terrorism has nothing to do with any religion,” Khan said. “No one did research that before 9-11, the majority of suicide bombers in the world were Tamil Tigers. They were Hindus.”
To this, Gambhir has come out in open and have criticized Khan over his alleged depreciating the acts of terrorism done by the present radical Islamic bodies.
Gambhir has been involved in the war of words with former Pakistani cricket players and experts ever since, he has been active in politics and has also followed the saffron narrative created by his party- BJP.
Meanwhile, India later opted to reply to the accusations made by Imran Khan at the United Nations, to which Pakistan has avoided to make a response.
