Cricketer Gautam Gambhir on October 18 said that India should sever all its ties with Pakistan until cross-border terrorism stops.
“I absolutely endorse that we should have no ties with Pakistan until the time this cross-border terrorism finishes, because I feel that people absolutely need to put themselves in the shoes of those who’ve lost their kids, someone who’s lost their father, son or husband.”
“So I totally endorse that until the time we don’t secure our own Indians, our own countrymen, all other things can be kept aside. I totally ensure that we should not have any relationship with Pakistan until cross-border terrorism is over.”
Last month, BCCI president Anurag Thakur had also said that there is no question of playing cricket with arch-rivals Pakistan and had even added that he was planning to approach ICC to not put them in the same group as Pakistan during Champions Trophy.
