Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad on Tuesday took to social media to vent his ire towards a talks show on TV, which according to the 62-year-old was ‘disrespectful’ towards him.

Miandad slammed the hosts of the popular show based on the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) for disrespectful impersonation.

In the talk show, a comedian Mir Mohammad Ali plays a caricature of Miandad’s character, to which the former Pakistani batting maestro said: “Those who have worked so much for the country should be treated with respect. A joke should be kept within the limit of a joke. It should be done in a decent manner.”

“I am being portrayed as a dummy and they are taking my name. If the direct attacks don’t stop then I will take legal recourse and fight till the end,” Miandad said in the video which was shared on Twitter and posted on his Youtube account.

“I have done so much for my country. I have always supported my country. The mimicry should be done in a decent manner, and my name should not be taken directly as it can promote a false image,” he added.

Miandad also threatened to take legal action against the broadcasters if he felt that the show is continuing to make fun of him.

“I will take legal measures if the attacks persist,” he said.
