Indians have become ‘abusive’ after Mumbai terror attacks:Pakistan hockey captain

Karachi: The Pakistan Hockey Federation and national captain Zeeshan Ashraf feel one reason for the team’s poor Commonwealth Games performance was the crowd behaviour in Delhi which has become ‘abusive’ after the Mumbai terror attacks.

PHF secretary Asif Bajwa said the feedback he had got from the team was that the players were subjected to more abuse and insults then they were used to facing by Indian spectators before the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.

“It is now more difficult for our players when they play in India and there is more pressure on them because of the treatment they get from the spectators,” he said.

Bajwa was manager of the Pakistan team that finished 12th in the World Cup held in New Delhi earlier in 2010 and was removed from the manager’s post as a result of the poor show.
