Cricketer Mohammad Asif visits Southall

A press conference on behalf of Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Asif was held in Southall.

It was organised by Dalawar Chaudhry and the venue was his restaurant, Chaudhry’s TKC in Southall.

Asif has agreed to be a positive role model for the youth of Southall by providing his expertise to cricketing youngsters of Southall. How that will happen is in its early stages.

He mingled with the audience, signing autographs and having his picture taken with enthusiastic fans, young and old alike.

Cricket can overcome obstacles like nationalism and religion. Mr Brij-Mohan Gupta, Chairman of the Hindu Culture and Heritage Society UK, was one such guest.

His grandchildren had travelled 40 miles to see Mohammad Asif. He said that cricket loving fans don’t want politics in cricket; they merely want to see Mohammed Asif being allowed to play and be entertained.
