#SACHIN: Pakistani Taliban warns media to "STOP PRAISING TENDULKAR"

One of the things that marked Sachin Tendulkar’s recent retirement was the extraordinary outpouring of affection towards the ‘Little Master’ from people right across the globe and cut across from the social and cultural spectrum.

One group however, might be the exception to the rule.

A banner splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban today called on media organizations in the country to refrain from praising Tendulkar because “he is Indian”.

In a video message send to a TV channel, Tehreek-e-Taliban (Taliban Movement of Pakistan) spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid said it was “unfortunate” that Pakistani media had been so effusive with their praise for the much-loved cricketer.

"There is this Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar.  It was unfortunate to see Pakistani media go to great extent to pay tribute to him," Shahid said whilst flanked by the customary pair of AK 47-wielding henchmen. 

"On the other hand, it was sad to know same Pakistani media badly criticized captain Misbah-ul-Haq.

No matter how good Tendulkar is, don't praise him because he is Indian. No matter how bad Misbah-ul-Haq plays, he should be praised because he is a Pakistani."

The Pakistani press, much like newspapers and broadcasters from New York through London to Australia, had covered Tendulkar’s final series extensively with his 20-minute farewell speech covered live. 

The Express Tribune and Daily Times wrote Tendulkar is rightly considered the most complete batsman of his age, possessing every shot in the book and having the ability to both, tear apart bowling attacks and to control his natural aggression to suit the needs of his team.

Pakistani captain Misbah Ul-Haq on the other hand has come under criticism in recent weeks for not being “aggressive” enough during his team’s recent tour of South Africa.
