  • Siraj and the cross-seam attack

  1. Gentlemen, what are your reactions to your friend and partisan Gideon Haigh calling out the crowd in Ahmedabad a Nuremberg rally?

    Not just this time but he repeatedly tries to put India and the BCCI down with his out of context, pro – Pakistani comments. Even during the Border Gavaskar series, he states that Usman Khwaja should shake the PM’s hand? What do you make of all this? In your view, is this acceptable?

    Will you address this in your next podcast?

    Was the crowd really that misbehaving in Ahmedabad? It was only a sea of blue not Orange for God’s sake!

    1. Hello. I haven’t seen the full interview where he said this – and I realize the hosts have clarified their position on it. He is a columnist who is entitled to his views. Of course, if we call him on our podcast and discuss these matters, we would be happy to engage further with the issue. Thanks. – Sidvee
