I wish some people also had chivalry
Famous lyricist Javed Akhtar has commented on the recent controversy over Neeraj Chopra. Javed Akhtar has also praised Bajrang Punia, who came in support of Neeraj and said that I wish some people of the country had the same decency, IQ and sportsmanship like these players.
Javed Akhtar wrote in a tweet from his official Twitter handle, ‘I wish some people in our country had the class, decency, IQ and sportsmanship of our players like Neeraj Chopra and Bajrang Punia.’
Twitter users are also getting a lot of reaction on this tweet of Javed Akhtar. A user named Professor Dead Poll wrote, ‘I wish some people had love for Mother India instead of separation mentality.’ A user named Neil Mukherjee writes, ‘We also hoped that the intellectuals of our country would have the courage to write and speak the truth so that the general public would not have any problem in understanding the reality. But what about the IQ of those who send thousands of curses with guns and bullets instead of sending curses to those who snatch power from the power of guns?
What is the whole matter- Javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra, who won gold in Tokyo Olympics, had said in one of his interviews that the day he had his final match, he was looking for his javelin. Then he saw that Pakistani player Arshad Nadeem was walking with his javelin. He quickly took the javelin from him and went and threw his first throw.
Controversy arose from this matter- After this interview came to the fore, some people started giving it a political color. Filmmaker Ashok Pandit said that a conspiracy was hatched in the playground so that Neeraj could not win. A section on social media started giving strong comments on this, after which Neeraj came forward and said that it should not be made an issue by taking his help. Sports teaches everyone to walk together. We all players live with love.
Bajrang Poonia supported- After Neeraj Chopra’s statement came out, many players expressed their support for him, including Bajrang Punia. In a conversation with our partner website The Indian Express, he said that whether the athlete is from Pakistan or any other country, he represents his nation. He (Nadeem) is a player first. Let us say something against that person, just because he is from Pakistan, that is not right.
