"The entire country is shocked over the shameful act and believe the hand of Pakistan is behind the terror strike," he added. "As directed by RCA President C.P. Joshi, pictures of Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammed Asif, Waqar Younis and several other Pakistani players were removed from different parts of the stadium to show solidarity with the martyrs' families. The RCA also paid homage to the troopers," he further said.
"All the RCA officials, players wished for stern action by the central government against Pakistan, beside completely ending the menace of terrorism from the country," he said. Nahar also said that pictures of Pakistani players displayed on the stadium blocks which were published in media were of the past.
Earlier, the CCI and PCA had pulled down pictures of several Pakistani legends from the Brabourne stadium and the IS Bindra Stadium, respectively.
