Rashid Latif takes a dig at Virender Sehwag, sends strong message

Rashid Latif takes a dig at Virender Sehwag, sends strong message

Islamabad, June 10 (IBNS): Former Pakistani cricketer Rashid Latif, who found Virender Sehwag's tweet referring to his country as objectionable, has took a dig at him and sent a strong message on social media.

The controversy sparked when Sehwag tweeted to call Pakistan as the son of India, as the former received a crushing defeat to the latter on last Sunday.

In a high voltage, clash between the two neighbouring countries in the Champions Trophy, India outplayed Pakistan by 124 runs after defeating Bangladesh in the warm up match.

Sehwag, who is very popular for his wits and humour, referred to Bangladesh as grandson and Pakistan as son, on Twitter.

"Pote ke baad Bete. Koi baat nahi Beta, Well tried ! Congratulations Bharat !#BaapBaapHotaHai #INDvPAK" he tweeted on June 4.

Latif chose Facebook as the best place where he virtually called the former Indian opening batsman as uneducated.

He said: "There were lot of educated, good people I know in the Indian team like Kapil Dev, Azu bhai (Mohammad Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman. But from where have you come?"

The former Pakistani cricketer even attacked Sehwag for not knowing the history as he claimed that Muslims made significant contributions before the Independence in 1947. "Starting from Ajmer Sharif to Taj Mahal, all were made by our forefathers in India which we handed over to you free of cost. You people could not build it, so we gave it to you (India)."

Latif even threatened Sehwag to teach a lesson for his comment on Pakistan. He also said that he  reacted because it was an attack on the nation (Pakistan).

"I will go and teach you a lesson and pay up with full interest like we used to do before. You people are coward so not playing with us. You ask your fathers (higher authority) to be a man and play with us. We are ready," he added.

Though he paid respect to other Indian players, Latif said that he won't leave Sehwag even if he has to take his father out of the graveyard.

The former Pakistani player dragged the Chennai test in 1999 where Pakistan's spin bowler Saqlain Mushtaq crushed the Indian batting.

With a personal attack to Sehwag, Latif said: "When we (he meant the era of Latif) used to play cricket in uniform, you were in liquid form. I hope you understand what I mean."

Sehwag, who has a record of 309 runs innings against Pakistan at Multan, preferred to be silent on this rift.

In a recent tweet, referring to the reply of Latif, he said: "A meaningful silence is always better than meaningless words."
