    Religious comments by Ahmed Shehzad to Dilshan

    Pakistan probe into Shehzad-Dilshan religious chat

    Pathetic behavior. Dilshan and later Suraj Randiv left Islam for the people who don't know the background.

    Was it supposed to be banter? Get ready for a broken ****ing afterlife has a better ring to it.

    Its pretty ordinary isn't it. If he is found guilty I'd imagine a ban of some description is in order.

    Yeah. Quite surprising really.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I'm going to withhold judgement on this one until Dilshan either makes a statement or files a complaint. It's the sort of thing you'd commonly hear as banter between two mates of different religions I think but if it was meant to be a proper sledge then it's obviously not on. Depends how it was meant and how Dilshan took it really.

    Dilshan is an apostate.

    There's video evidence as well. But apparently Dilshan is not going to press charges. May be higher forces close to being divine is at work. PCB has been a good allie of SLC. most probably will be swept under the carpet.

    "You're gonna burn for eternity unless you become a ........" is the basest and most pathetic way to try and get people to adhere to your religion. No time for that sort of crap.

    I disagree TBH. Whether Dilshan files a complaint should be immaterial in this case.

    From what I have experienced, these things are not said in banter. People usually mean it when they say it.

    Depends if you say it out of concern or arrogance,depends on the situation.
    If you genuinely believe in hell you can be worried for the person.
    If it said in arrogance well that shows the manner of the person.
    Personally i would not say it.

    Hell's not real. It's invented by religions to scare people into compliance/donations/loyalty...

    Yeah, I can see what you mean and that bringing up concerns like that could be doing an, at least, well meant thing to do. The problem here though is that it was in a context where the big questions should be miles away i.e: a cricket pitch where it could be seen as a dodgy sledge. (if it was in, say, a relaxed post match conversation and he said something like "mate, I'm worried..." then it would be a different story).

    If they were having Ford Vs Holden debate, an argument about US Foreign Policy, or an altercation about whether Tendulkar is greater than Bradman then in it is very likely that we wouldn't be reading about it in the media.

    However, just because the topic of discussion involves someones religious faith we all go "tut-tut" and blubber "well he shouldn't do that!" like a bunch of mamby-pamby school girls getting upset at someone criticising Justin Beeber's hairstyle.

    Shezhad may have well told that Dilshan that "Zeus will send you to Hades if you don't believe in Aphrodite" for all it's worth. It really is about as serious as that and not worth anyones time.

    The fact that Shazhad's comments might actually mean something significant indicates that a percentage of the planet is still stuck in the Bronze Age, or perhaps more to the point - the Dark Ages.

    The whole thing would be completely trivial were it not for the perception we westerners have of Muslims not having much of a sense of humour about their religion.

    I'd like to think Dilshan's response was something like "You can keep your 72 virgins, mate, I'll settle for being one with the universe."

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
