FM Qureshi urges United Nations to intervene for de-escalation of India-Pakistan tensions

Pulwama Attack Cricket Club Of India

Later, India called back its High Commissioner to Islamabad.

Another Indian cricket supporter said India's cricket body, one of the world's richest, should use its influence to force Pakistan out of the ICC. In fact, he still has some prestige in the game as he plays at Indian Premier League level.

"Either India will be part of World Cup 2019 or Pakistan".

Following the Pulwama attack on a convoy of 78 vehicles carrying some 2,500 members of the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), India revoked its Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to Pakistan - a move which would enable India to increase customs duty on goods coming from Pakistan. Aljazeera reported that "20-year-old Adil Dar rammed his auto filled with explosives into a convoy carrying Indian paramilitary forces, killing 42 of them".

Taking to Twitter, Tewari, who was a Union minister in the Manmohan Singh government, claimed the Jaish had helped Imran's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party form the government after last year's elections. The group is based in Pakistan, which accounts for the anger at the cricketing rivals. Pakistan has strongly rejected India's allegations and said that the JeM remains a proscribed entity in Pakistan since 2002 and the country was implementing its obligations on sanctions implementation.

Irish backstop can't be changed for Brexit deal - Estonian president
Stephen Barclay will finally hold talks with the European Union today on a "plan C" Brexit hatched by Leave and Remain Tories. May stressed that if the parliament fails to adopt a Brexit deal, it will let down the United Kingdom citizens it represents.

"Let's boycott Pakistan in @ICC Cricket World Cup!".

He said attributing the attack to Pakistan even before investigations was absurd.

India and Pakistan have not hosted a cricket series between their countries since 2013 due to political tensions.

It is very unfortunate that politics creeps into sports. The two nations' cricketing ties have been affected time and again by the crisis at the diplomatic levels and they don't play each other in any bilateral series but only at multilateral events. In fact, India was a leading country who pushed for the boycott of South Africa from global sports in the Apartheid era, according to a report by the New York Times.
