    The Indo-Pak tension at the LoC today spilled over to the sporting arena with Hockey India deciding to send back all nine Pakistani hockey players taking part in Hockey India League after protests over the killing of Indian soldiers on the border.

    After Shiv Sena protests in Mumbai forced the team to shift training base to Delhi, Hockey India decided to play safe and send the team's Pakistani signings back.

    The players who are going back are: Fareed Ahmed, Imran Butt, Mahmood Rashid and Muhammad Tousiq (all Mumbai Magicians); Muhammad Rizwan Sr. and Muhammad Rizwan Jr. (Delhi Waveriders); Muhammad Irfan and Shafqat Rasool (Ranchi Rhinos); and Kashif Shah (Jaypee Punjab Warriors).

    "The decision was made in consultation with the Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) and International Hockey Federation (FIH)," HIL chairman Narinder Batra said.

    Earlier, the Pakistan Hockey Federation has been informed about the decision and the circumstances under which it was taken. The PHF has expressed understanding of the situation.

    "The contracts of the four Pakistani players would remain valid and the payments would be made to them although they would not be playing in any of the matches," the official said.

    In all, there are nine players contracted to play in the five-team Hockey India League, which got underway yesterday.

    "We will take a decision about the other Pakistani players depending on how the situation pans out. If we feel that there could be more trouble, we may have to take an appropriate decision," he said.

    The league ran into rough weather after the killing of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistan Army on January 8 in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

    Mumbai Magicians, based in Mumbai, became the obvious target because of its large number of Pakistani recruits and the presence of right-wing outfit Shiv Sena's stronghold on the city.

    Over 100 Sena workers had protested against the participation of Pakistani players in the Mumbai franchise and disrupted the scheduled practice session on Sunday. This prompted the team management to shift base to Delhi.

    On the inaugural day, two supporters from Hindu Yuwak Sabha attempted to invade the turf at the National Stadium, the venue where the opening match between Delhi Waveriders and Punjab Warriors was on yesterday.

    The Mumbai team is scheduled to play its first match against Delhi in the capital tomorrow. Their first home match in the tournament is scheduled for January 20, against the Punjab team.

    when indian kabaddi came to pak..they were so much happy the hospitality pakistani has given them

    Sikh's people after visiting to there religious sites in pakistan give example of pakistan hospitality

    No wonder we take the title of the land of Hospitality

    while many indians might be jumping of joy over this but this prove that Shiv like an military coup is involved in govt directly and treating guest as such is shameful as well

    Please remember and never send your players.

    We have seen what kind of hospitality SriLankan cricket players received.

    Pakistan denies pilgrim visas to Sikhs from India

    Amritsar: Pakistan has denied pilgrim visas to a group of Sikh devotees from India, who wanted to attend the birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev at the Nankana Sahib Gurudwara in Pakistan.

    “We had applied for the visa for Pakistan and when we came here, we got to know that our visas have been cancelled. We wanted to go for pilgrimage to Nankana Sahib Gurudwara in Pakistan and now we are facing difficulty and we are disappointed after visa cancellation,” said Vijendar Kaur, a female pilgrim.Every year, thousands of Sikhs pay obeisance at the shrine, where the first Sikh guru, Guru Nanak Dev was born.

    The Shiromani Akali Dal Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee said in Amritsar that more than half the pilgrims were denied visas without assigning any reason.“Every year, on the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev ji, a large group of Sikh devotees goes for pilgrimage in Nankana Sahib Gurudwara in Pakistan and this year also, through the Shiromani Akali Dal Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee, we had applied from 1860 visas, out of which 971 visas were cancelled. I feel that it is wrong and disappointing for the devotees,” said a member of Shiromani Akali Dal Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee, Ram Singh said.

    Guru Nanak Dev, the first Sikh guru and the founder of the Sikh religion, was born on the full moon day in the month of Kartik as per the Hindu calendar. Hence, his birthday is celebrated as Guru Nanak Jayanti.Singh said this has hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community and demanded flexibility in visa policies.

    “We demand that the policy for visas should be flexible and the cancellation of visas at the 11th hour is not justified for a person, who has been waiting to go for the pilgrimage. This is a very important pilgrimage for the Sikhs and I want that the authorities should help us in the process of getting visas and steps should be taken to change the visa policies, so that the pilgrims are able to get the visas easily, without any problems,” said Singh.The two countries have gone to war three times since Pakistan split from India in 1947. The partition tore many families apart. The restrictions have been in place ever since.

    In April, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari visited India, the first trip by a Pakistani head of state in seven years. Last year, Pakistan promised India most-favoured nation trading status.But potential flashpoints between the two nations remain.
