Omar Quraishi's bitter again Omar Quraishi’s bitter again

Pakistani journalist Omar R Quraishi has established the fact that he doesn’t take India’s sports wins very well. When India won the Test series against England and people across the country were congratulating team India, we had Quraishi who couldn’t help but take a dig at the celebrations. “India beat England 4-0. At home — Yawn. Tigers at home, bunnies abroad — that’s Team India,” he wrote in a tweet. Indian media in hyperdrive over India’s 4-0 series win over England. They forget it’s at home. Which is the same as Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz,” read another.

Indians obviously didn’t take it lying down and massively trolled him. “What does a Pakistani know about winning a series at home ?” wrote someone. “A Pakistani talking about home series is like a bald talking about comb,” wrote another.

This is not the first time he has been bitter about India’s win. When Sakshi Malik won a bronze medal for India in Rio Olympics, also the country’s first till then, the journalist wrote, “Finally one of the 119 competitors that India sent to Rio has won a medal – a bronze – now see how they portray it as if they won 20 golds.” At the time, Twitter became a battleground for many Indians and Pakistanis with a barrage of tweets from both sides.

Also, he is not the only journalist with whom India’s win hasn’t gone down well. British journalist Piers Morgan was also trolled because of his earlier post against India during Olympics.

This is what Quraishi wrote.

And here’s how people reacted.

        Such comments should be ignored by all of us. Both stani and English are commenting like that due to stomach ache and heart burn. They can not digest India's victory. We know how Englishmen pla pathetically on the 5th day of 5th Test at Chennai . In 1961-62 an English Team headed by Ted Dexter came to India to play 5 tests. Englishmen commented that it was a second rate team . Ted Dexter reacted and challenged and said this team is enough to beat India at their Home (India) which was headed by Nari Contractor. The result was England lost the series 0-2 dia achieved big success at Calcutta and Madras. Such was the performance of Indian team in 1962. India beat England in England in 1971 under the captainship of Ajit Wadekar. 0-1. That sent jitters to England. Both English and stani journalists keep your shutup .
