A legend on death bed:  A commendable decision to support Hanif Muhammad

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced a donation of Rs1 million to former batsman Hanif Mohammad due to complications from a recurring cancer disease. Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Executive Committee administrator Najam Sethi announced and took to his official account Twitter and said. Hanif Mohammad was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago. He had undergone chemotherapy and surgery for his lung cancer in 2013 in London. However, the cancer spread with time and it has been reappeared. Earlier, Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah paid visit to the hospital and enquired about Hanif’s health. Sindh CM also announced to give one million rupees for the treatment of the legendary Pakistani batsman. Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif also promised to provide all possible facilities for Hanif Mohammad’s treatment. He also praised the veteran for his services to Pakistan. Hanif had already undergone surgery in London after the problem was first diagnosed. For now, the government has stepped in to stand by a man who built the foundations of Pakistan cricket. Along with two other Pakistanis who wore the green cap, Imran Khan and Javed Miandad, his picture lines the ICC’s Hall of Fame. Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif, himself an avid cricket fan, has said the federal government will pay all of Hanif’s medical costs. On Monday, the cricketer was also visited by the new Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, who extended Rs1 million towards his treatment. And the PCB has also announced Rs1 million for Hanif. Yes, Hanif Muhammad deserves this support from a country he brought pride to for so many years. But it is also true that others from different realms have been failed by the state – including sportspersons, and people from the entertainment industry. At this time, we all pray that Hanif Muhammad can win the battle he is locked in. But we also call upon the government to make a bigger effort to support its superstars in times of need, whether they belong to the field of cricket or to other spheres including the arts. It is clear Hanif Muhammad still retains a strong army of fans in the country. We hope the knowledge that they recall his enormous contributions to Pakistan cricket, as a batsman who finished his career with a remarkable average of 43.98, and was at his peak considered among the best cricketers in the world, will boost Hanif’s spirit at this difficult time and help him fight for his life. He certainly deserves all the help that can be extended to him given the high costs of treatment.
