TNI Bureau: The outrage in India, thanks to a strong media, has forced former Pakistan cricket captain Javed Miandad to cancel his India visit, which was supposed to begin tomorrow. Miandad was scheduled to watch the India-Pakistan ODI in New Delhi on January 6.
There was a public outrage over the granting of Visa to Miandad, who is a close relative of India’s most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim. A section in the media demanded the interrogation of Miandad to know the whereabouts of Dawood.
Since Miandad’s son is married to underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s daughter, many people questioned the government’s decision to grant him a visa to visit India. The government clarified that it followed the standard procedure, but people were not convinced. A major controversy was averted with Miandad’s decision to make retreat.
