'Shame on you': Harbhajan Singh slams Kamran Akmal after racist 'Sikh joke' on Arshdeep

PTC News Desk: Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh slammed former Pakistan cricketer Kamran Akmal for his racist 'Sikh joke' about pacer Arshdeep Singh.

During India's nerve-racking battle against archrival Pakistan, Arshdeep was given the final over to help the Men in Blue over the finish line.


Akmal participated in a panel on ARY News, as shown in a video shared by Harbhajan. During the show, he made a controversial comment concerning Arshdeep's religion, saying, "Kuch bhi ho sakta hai... 12 baj gaye hai (Anything can happen. "It's already 12)."

Harbhajan wasn't thrilled with Kamran's remarks on Arshdeep, and he commented on X, "Lakh di laanat tere Kamraan Akhmal...You should know the history of Sikhs before you open your filthy mouth. We Sikhs saved your mothers and sisters when they were abducted by invaders, the time invariably was 12 o'clock. Shame on you...Have some Gratitude."

Following this, Akmal apologised to Harbhajan and the Sikh community, stating that he deeply regrets the comment. "I deeply regret my recent comments and sincerely apologize to @harbhajan_singh and the Sikh community. My words were inappropriate and disrespectful. I have the utmost respect for Sikhs all over the world and never intended to hurt anyone. I am truly sorry."
