Punjab Cricket Association authorities on Sunday removed photographs of Pakistani cricket players placed on the walls of the I.S. Bindra Stadium, it is earlier known as the PCA stadium. These photographs were pasted along the corridors, long room and gallery of the stadium’s pavilion block. They are removed by the authorities as the whole of India is filled with a lot of anguish because of the dastardly Pulwama attack.
The cowardly and horrific attack took place on February 14, 2019, when a suicide bomber rammed his SUV filled with a massive amount of explosives into the CRPF convoy. India lost more than 45 CRPF Jawans in the attack. PCA honorary treasurer Ajay Tyagi said.
“We have removed the photographs of the Pakistani players today to show solidarity with the CRPF martyrs (who were killed in the Pulwama terror attack on February 14) and show anger against Pakistan.”
According to the reports, nearly 15 photographs of Pakistani players have been removed. Photographs also included Pakistan’s former captains Imran Khan, who is now serving as the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Javed Miandad and Shahid Afridi.
These pictures also include the memories of 2011 World Cup semi-final match played between India and Pakistan in Mohali. Many prominent leaders including the then Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan, Manmohan Singh and Yousaf Raza Gilani, had watched the match in Mohali on March 30, 2011.
