Pulwama Attack: Pak PM Imran Khan’s portrait removed at Cricket Club of India

Better sense must prevail, we don't want war: Pak PM Imran Khan

The prestigious Cricket Club of India (CCI) on February 16 removed a portrait of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, in a unique way of protest against the dastardly terror attack on CRPF convoy in Kashmir’s Pulwama.

Earlier, CCI President Premal Udani had confirmed that they had covered Imran’s portrait as a mark of protest and could decide to take it down entirely. The latest development in the matter suggests that the portrait has already been removed.

“See, CCI is a sports-club and we have photographs of past and present cricketers from all countries. We wanted to show, in our way – displeasure – on whatever is happening right now. It is mark of protest. We have covered it as of now but can’t say right now if we would take it down,” Udani told PTI.

Another senior CCI official said that the portrait could be found on the wall of ‘Porbunder All-rounder’, a restaurant inside the club premises on the ground-floor, which also has pictures of other past greats.
