After decades of waiting, Pakistan finally won its first Champions Trophy. June 18, 2017, is going to be a historic date for Pakistan as years of bottled emotions finally found a course. Following that course of overwhelming experience, an anchor from across the border has fallen from grace in a rant against not just the Indian cricket team, but Indian politics and personalities, too.
Liaquat, the anchor, touched on the sensitive issue of Kashmir and showed clippings of Srinagar celebrating Pak’s victory instead. He also showed video clippings of people celebrating in Baluchistan taking a dig at PM Modi’s comment to free the land from Pakistan’s clutches.

Arnab Goswami also found a mention in the anchor’s rant as he challenged Goswami to a live debate. Not sure about the Pakistani channel’s views on the father-son relationship but the number of political and social issues that were forcefully attached to Pak’s victory was needless and shocking.
