Pakistani cricketers’ photos removed from Mohali stadium after Pulwama attack

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) on Sunday removed the photographs of Pakistani cricketers from various points inside the Mohali stadium as a “humble step” to show solidarity with the families of martyrs of the Pulwama terror attack.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the cricket body’s office bearers here, PCA treasurer Ajay Tyagi told reporters.

“As a humble step, the PCA has decided to show its solidarity with the families of martyrs of the Pulwama attack. There is so much anger in the nation against the heinous attack and PCA is no different in this,” Tyagi said.

He said there are nearly 15 photos of Pakistani cricketers, which were kept inside the stadium at various points including in the galleries, long room, reception and ‘hall of fame’ area.
