ISLAMABAD: Indian media on Thursday lashed out at Congress leader and former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu for talking peace, ARY News reported.
Talking to media over the ongoing escalation between India and Pakistan, Sidhu said the issue of terrorism would be resolved through peace only.
“We need to resolve problems through talks,” he said.
The peace-loving Indian leader, who had arrived in Pakistan to attend Kartarpur Border Corridor ceremony in November last year, said issues were not resolved through creating hatred and intimidation.
