Harbhajan Singh Slams Inzamam-ul-Haq for Baseless Allegations of Religious Conversion

Controversy ensued when former Pakistan captain and ex-Chief Selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq, made contentious statements in a viral video, suggesting that Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh was on the verge of converting from Sikhism to Islam. Inzamam alleged that Harbhajan expressed admiration for Maulana Tariq Jameel, who led prayers in their shared accommodation during a cricket event.

Inzamam’s Unsubstantiated Narration

In the video, Inzamam claims, “Harbhajan, who was unaware that Tariq Jameel was a maulana, said, ‘I am impressed with this man and want to follow his words.’ Tumhe dekhke ruk jaata hu (I stop after seeing you).” Inzamam’s statements about Harbhajan’s alleged interest in converting sparked outrage and disbelief.

Harbhajan Singh swiftly responded to the controversial claims on social media, expressing his anger and disbelief. In a post on the social media platform ‘X,’ he wrote, “Yeh kon sa nasha pee kar baat kar raha hai? I am a proud Indian and proud Sikh… yeh Bakwaas log kuch bhi bakte hai.” Harbhajan vehemently denied any intention of religious conversion and criticized Inzamam for making baseless statements.

Inzamam’s Additional Claims Raise Eyebrows

In a subsequent video, Inzamam went on to make further controversial statements, asserting that he and his teammate Saqlain Mushtaq attempted to convert foreigners and English players to Islam during their time playing for a club. He even claimed to have approached West Indies legend Brian Lara about changing his religion to Islam. These additional claims added fuel to the already heated controversy.

In the aftermath of Inzamam’s statements, social media platforms were flooded with outrage from cricket fans, condemning the unfounded allegations. Harbhajan Singh’s fans and well-wishers rallied behind him, expressing support and dismissing Inzamam’s claims as baseless and sensational.
