Former India opener Wasim Zafar has resigned as the head coach of the Ranji Trophy team Uttarakhand after he broke the biological safety net and brought the imam of the prayers to the dressing room.

India’s domestic cricket legend has also given tough answers to all the questions that have harmed the team and spread communalism.

Former right-handed opener Wasim Zafar is a legend in Indian domestic cricket, though he has not been able to make a career for the national team. Leaving the field game and coaching now. He has also worked as a batting consultant for the Bangladesh High-Performance Team for some time. Later he took charge as the head coach of Uttarakhand.

Uttarakhand Cricket Association secretary Mohim Verma accused Zafar of communalism in a statement. Zafar has spread communalism in the election of the party captain, the statement said.

Wasim Zafar has denied all the allegations at the press conference. He dismissed all the allegations as ‘minor’.

‘The allegations against me are very serious. I have been accused of being sectarian. It is very sad. That is why I came here to speak out against these slanders. You have known me for a long time. I hope you know me very well. ‘

‘Everyone who played in Syed Mustaq Ali, I played in relying on my faith. I put Samad Falla up for the last match. If I was a communalist, Samad Falla, Mohammad Nazim would play in every match. Isn’t it? It is a very small matter. I never do such small thoughts. ‘

Zafar also had to tell the cricketers not to call him Jayshree Ram or Joy Hanuman, saying, ‘No such situation has arisen. In our huddle it was said ‘Rani Mata Sachche Darbar Ki Joy.’ I have never heard anyone say ‘Jayasriram’ or ‘Joy Hanuman’ or interrupt anyone. ‘

‘If I was communal, would I bring Joy Bista to the team? I also recommended him to be the captain. The selectors thought Iqbal Abdullah was more qualified and talented. So OK is made the captain. After reaching Baroda, I told the team that we were playing for the state of Uttarakhand. So the slogans ‘Go Uttarakhand’, ‘Let’s do it Uttarakhand’ and ‘Come on Uttarakhand’ will be much more significant.

Wasim also spoke about the controversy over the prayers, saying, “I did not call Maulvi who came on Friday. Iqbal Abdullah is known in Dehradun and he called Maulana Sahib. If I was a communalist, I would call the practice at 9 in the morning, finish it at 12 and go to pray at 1:30 in the afternoon. Isn’t it? I would have been fired if it was communal, right? But I have resigned myself.
