ISLAMABAD   -  Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said Sunday that it was unfortunate that South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs has been pressurised  to withdraw from the Kashmir Premier League( KPL).

In a media talk, he said, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has used cricket for politics in the past as well which was  strongly condemnable.

He said that pressurising  Herschelle Gibbs not to participate in Kashmir will not harm Kashmir movement, rather it will benefit it. The minister said, by stopping international players for their irrational political objectives, Indian rulers will harm themselves.

He said that as there were millions of cricket fans in both India and Pakistan, cricket should be kept separate from politics.

He said that Kashmir Premier League was important for Pakistan cricket and people wanted to see its matched.
