    Pakistan fans arrested for racial abuse

    Pakistan fans arrested for racial abuse

    October 12, 2007

    Four expatriate fans of Pakistani origin were arrested at Gaddafi Stadium during the final afternoon of the second Test between Pakistan and South Africa for making racially-motivated comments and gestures at members of the South African team.

    The four, sitting in the Imran Khan stand, were arrested by local security officials during the afternoon session , after abusing three South African players and officials who were on their way to the nets.

    "They were making racial comments about the South African team and they are now in lock-up," said a Pakistan board official. The remarks were directed at allrounder Vernon Philander, the assistant coach Vincent Barnes, and Faisul Nagel, the South African security consultant.

    The incident mirrors the monkey chants directed at Australia's allrounder Andrew Symonds during the fifth ODI at Vadodara, but South Africa, like Australia, will not be lodging any complaints. Michael Owen-Smith, the team's media manager, said: "The matter was swiftly handled and we are not going to lodge an official complaint.

    Maybe they were praying for a divine intervention?

    Totally deplorable. Following such instances of racial abuse, and the littering of the ground at Vadodara, I feel justified in saying that subcontinental fans are definitively the worst.

    Locking up somebody for chanting abuse from a distance - only in Pakistan will you find such a callous disregard for any sort of human rights whatsoever.

    You can certainly get locked up if you yell racial abuse in a sports stadium in the US. Likely booked and released, but that's what happened in Pakistan.

    Even in Bombay the four youngsters were arrested in the odi against Australia for their monkey-imitations and released in the evening.

    PS : They did get to watch the rest of the match at the police station we understand.

    What would you rather happen? These people are scum and deserve no leeway.
    Maybe they will think twice about it next time.
