“I try to keep my life private, but I express my thoughts to people so that my country can benefit from it.” students also before leaving and expressing concern about it, “Pathan told Raunak Kapoor on the Instagram live show ‘Beyond The Field’.
The 35-year-old feels that the country will advance if the sports stars start talking about the problems that affect our society.
“Ideally, if cricket players or sports stars can talk and talk about the problems that affect society, then it will only bring the country forward. But simply saying” hamara desh mahan hai “will not help. We need to walk the talk.
“If you ask why others don’t talk about sensitive issues, then I feel like they have insecurities.
