Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain says pressurizing South African batsman Herschelle Gibbs for not playing in Kashmir Premeir League by Board of Control for Cricket in India is regrettable.

In a statement today (Sunday), he said we condemn dragging sports to politics. He said freedom movement in Kashmir will not be affected by pressurizing Herschelle Gibbs.

He said India will damage itself by stopping international players from playing for their irrational political purposes. He urged to keep cricket and politics separate.

The Minister said Kashmir Premier League is important for Pakistan's cricket and people want to watch it.
