Pakistan cricketer Danish Kaneria had come in support of the historic Bhoomi pujan of the Ram Temple on Wednesday at the holy city of Ayodhya.
The leg-spinner now has said that he would definitely like to visit the religious place if he gets an opportunity. “Being a religious person, I am a devoted Hindu and I always try to follow the path shown by Lord Ram. Since childhood, we have seen Ramayana and I worship Lord Ram and his ideals of life. The tweet that I did about Bhoomi Poojan of Ram Mandir was not done to hurt or tease anyone. I believe in Lord Ram and that’s why I tweeted about it. If almighty Lord Ram desires, I will definitely come to India to see the temple. For us, it is a religious place and if I get an opportunity, I would definitely like to come to Ayodhya,” he said while talking to India TV.
Kaneria in a tweet said, “Today is the Historical Day for Hindus across the world. Lord Ram is our ideal.” The leg-spinner has been in the news for quite some time now for making statements on various issues.
He had earlier responded to the claims made by Shoaib Akhtar about the leggie’s ill-treatment by the team members.
Kaneria was quoted by PTI as saying, “Shoaib (Akhtar) has been a legend of the game. His words are also as blunt as his bowling.”
Earlier, Akhtar has made a shocking statement about spinner Danish Kaneria’s career.
Kaneria has been banned since 2012 and wants to start cricketing activities to earn a living, but the PCB said that he cannot do much as he was punished by the ECB.
