Former Indian batsman Mohammad Kaif has launched a scathing attack on Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan following the latter's accusation that minorities in India aren't treated as equals and that his country is better in that aspect.
Taking to Twitter, the 38-year-old put out the facts in front of the Pakistan PM, mentioning how minorities have been only growing in India since independence, a stark contrast to the situation in Pakistan.
"There were around 20% minorities at the time of Partition in Pakistan,less than 2% remain now. On the other hand minority population has grown significantly in India since Independence. Pakistan is the last country that should be lecturing any country on how to treat minorities," his post read.
A couple of days back, Imran Khan, speaking at an event, had tried to boast about how his country would set an example for India when it comes to the treatment of minorities.
"We will show the Modi government how to treat minorities...Even in India, people are saying that minorities are not being treated as equal citizens," he said in Lahore while speaking about his government's achievements.
His comments were in reference to the statements made by Bollywood star Naseeruddin Shah. The veteran actor, in his interaction with with Karwan-e-Mohabbat India, had stated that the situation is such in India that a killing of cow is given more importance than that of a cop.
"It will be very difficult to capture this djinn back into the bottle again. There is complete impunity for those who take law into their own hands. In many areas we are witnessing that the death of a cow is more significant than that of a police officer," he added while speaking in relation to the Bulandshahr violence case, wherein a cop was murdered.
