Replying to Sehwag’s earlier tweet of mocking Imran Kan, Ganguly said, “Viru .. I see this and I am shocked ..a speech which is unheard of .. a world which needs peace, Pakistan as a country needs it the most .. and the leader speaks such rubbish ..not the Imran khan the cricketer world knew ..speech in UN was poor”.

In an interaction with an American news channel, Imran Khan criticized the infrastructure in the country, saying “You have to go to China and see the way their infrastructure is. In New York, I am watching the car bumping around here.”

Shami tweeted, “Mahatma Gandhi spent his life spreading the message of love, harmony and peace. @ImranKhanPTI from UN podium issued despicable threats and spoke of hatred. Pakistan needs a leader who talks development, jobs & economic growth, not war & harbouring terrorism #india”.

On the othe rhand, Harbhajan wrote: “At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan’s choice of words ‘bloodbath’ ‘fight to the end’ will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson I expect him to promote peace”.

Pathan tweeted, “At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan’s choice of words ‘bloodbath’ ‘fight to the end’ will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson I expect him to promote peace”.

India had issued a sharp reply to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the UNGA, saying his threat of unleashing nuclear devastation “qualifies as brinkmanship, not statesmanship”.
