In a recent event held in Karachi, former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar expressed his disapproval of the comments made by Abdul Razzaq about Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Razzaq's remarks, which suggested that marrying Aishwarya Rai would not guarantee the birth of a pious child, have sparked widespread controversy and criticism.

Shoaib Akhtar, known for his fast bowling and being one of only three bowlers to have ever broken the 100 mph barrier, took to social media to voice his condemnation of Razzaq's statement.

Akhtar highlighted the importance of respecting women and criticized not only Razzaq's distasteful joke but also the reaction of those present at the event, including former teammates Shahid Afridi and Umar Gul.

Akhtar wrote, "I highly condemn the inappropriate joke/comparison made by Razzaq. No woman should be disrespected like this."

He further emphasized that those seated

beside Razzaq, who were seen laughing and clapping, should have instead raised their voices against the disrespectful comment.

“People seated beside him should have raised their voice right away rather than laughing & clapping."

The incident has led to a backlash from cricket fans and the general public alike, with many echoing Akhtar's sentiments on the need for respectful discourse.

The controversy has also brought attention to the behaviour of sports personalities off the field and the impact of their words on public perception and societal norms.

As the story unfolds, it serves as a reminder of the influence that celebrities and athletes wield and the responsibility they carry to set a positive example.

Shoaib Akhtar's rebuke of the incident is a stand for dignity and respect, particularly towards women, and a call for accountability among peers in the sporting community.
