We are still not over the enthralling season of PSL 2 and the final match that was closed in Pakistan. With Peshawar Zalmi bagging the victory, we are yet reminiscing the good old times of foreign players landing in our country.
However, one thing that was missing from the squads of the teams was the participation of minorities, which is still overlooked around the country. But, let’s not forget that these people do deserve the same rights too. And this is what Peshawar Zalmi has proved through incorporating a Sikh Player in the official squad of PSL season 3.
Here is what the team has to say:
Muhammad Akram, Zalmi head coach, visited Panja Sahib Gurdwara in Nankana Sahib and took part in their ongoing religious festival. He gifted official kits to the Sikh community and was warmly welcomed by Mahinder Paul Singh, a famous Pakistani domestic cricketer.
Muhamamd Akram further announced the “Minority Talent Hunt Under Peshawar Zalmi Foundation” in Peshawar and the surrounding region on behalf of team owner Javed Afridi. He announced that 1 best player from a pool of 5 in the Minority Talent Hunt will feature in the official squad of Peshawar Zalmi in PSL 3.
Here is the coach’s pictures while giving away the kits to Sikh community:
Peshawar Zalmi’s decision to include a minority player in their squad of PSL 3 is extremely worth appreciating. This way, Javed Afridi and the group has not only won hearts of Muslims, but also given a sense of security to the Sikh groups and likes who thought that they were being ignored in different sects of development.
