Security concerns: Pakistan India match, the real test of Modi’s Govt

eden

 

World T20 until the Indian government ‘publicly’ guarantees security for the men and women’s national teams, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar said on Thursday.”The ICC and the BCCI have been very accommodating, but it is the Indian government’s security assurance that matters the most,” said Nisar while addressing a press conference in Islamabad. “Thus far, there has been no such indication from them,” he added.Earlier, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) also announced that it wanted security assurance from India before it allows the team to travel to the World Twenty20 with its first group match at Kolkata scheduled for next Wednesday. Chaudhry Nisar said at a press conference that Pakistan has only two demands: our match against India at Dharamshala be moved because the state government there has refused to take responsibility for security, and that the Indian government assure Pakistan of enhanced security for the team. The first demand was met when the venue was shifted to Kolkata. The second demand has been ignored. Hopeful though we are that our team plays in this prestigious event, it would be irresponsible to do so without any promise of security – given the current climate in India. Normally the ICC would fine Pakistan for not fulfilling its obligations but there is precedent for teams refusing to travel for safety reasons. That includes just about every team in the world refusing to come to Pakistan, despite guarantees given repeatedly by the Pakistan government. Zimbabwe too suffered when international teams didn’t tour the country in the early 2000s during Mugabe’s regime. If the Pakistan side is indeed forced to back out from the tournament, it would be for legitimate security reasons. For anyone doubting that and accusing us of political posturing, let’s review the history. In the 1990s Pakistan had to pull out of a proposed tour when the Shiv Sena dug up a pitch in Mumbai to warn us against visiting. It was the Shiv Sena again that forced PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan to hastily leave Mumbai when he had come to discuss a bilateral tour. India’s cancellation of that tour caused Pakistan an estimated loss of $40 million. The current ruling party in India, the BJP, is seen as the ideological blood brother of Shiv Sena. We have also been systemically excluded from the IPL every year after its first season. The BJP government, it is clear, does not want us in India. The ICC, despite being controlled by India, needs to recognise this gambit for what it is and work towards ensuring security for the Pakistani team or make sure India is censured for this. This is not just a big test for the host country but the international cricket establishment as well to ensure that the game stays above politics.
