Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh bashed former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq after the latter came up with some controversial statement. Recently, a video is making rounds on social media in which Inzamam is making a claim that the former Indian spinner was quite influenced and impressed with Pakistan-based Muslim scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel and was very close to converting to Islam.
We had a room where players were conducted. Maulana Tariq Jameel used to visit us in the evening and lead us into a namaz. After a few days, Irfan Pathan, Mohammad Kaif, and Zaheer Khan also started coming and joined us. Four other Indian cricketers sat and watched us,” said Inzamam in a viral video.
“Harbhajan, who was unaware that Tariq Jameel was a maulana said ‘I am impressed with this man and want to follow his words,” he added.
But it seemed like Inzamam’s remarks didn’t go down well with Harbhajan Singh as soon as he came to know about the same. The two-time World Champion Indian cricketer lashed out at the former Pak skipper for this controversial statement.
“Ye kon sa nasha pee kar baat kar rha hai? I am a proud Indian and proud sikh..ye bakwas log kuch bhi bakte hain (What kind of intoxication he had before talking? I am a proud Indian and proud sikh, these rubbish people babble all non-sense,” wrote Harbhajan Singh in his tweet as a response to Inzamam-ul-Haq’s controversial remarks.

Harbhajan Singh’s tweet in reply to Inzamam-ul-Haq's ‘religious’ provocative statement, the fans also came up with a lot of divided reactions over X (formerly Twitter).
Talking about cricket, Inzamam-ul-Haq was recently in the headlines after he resigned as chief selector of Pakistan’s men’s cricket team following the embarrassing group-stage exit from the ODI World Cup 2023.
“Inzamam-ul-Haq voluntarily stepped down from his position on 30 October to offer the PCB the opportunity to conduct a transparent inquiry about the conflict of interest allegations,” said the official statement released by PCB.
Here's how fans reacted to Harbhajan Singh's reply to Inzamam-ul-Haq:
