Pakistani Taliban have warned the local media to stop praising Sachin Tendulkar, a great cricketer and highest runs scorer in the history of the game who announced to retirement recently. 

“There is this Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar. It was unfortunate to see Pakistani media go to great extent to pay tribute to him,” Shahidullah Shahid, the TTP spokesperson flanked by two AK-47 wielding masked men, said in a video message.

“On the other hand, it was sad to know same Pakistani media badly criticized captain Misbah-ul-Haq. No matter how good Tendulkar is, don’t praise him because he is Indian. No matter how bad Misbah-ul-Haq plays, he should be praised because he is a Pakistani,” the video shows the Taliban spokesperson as saying.
