"During Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, we had Iqbal Abdullah, who has played IPL, U-19 World Cup winner. Samad Falla, who has more than 300 First Class wickets They are playing as professional players, first of all. And there is just one Muslim player Mohammad Nazir and he didn’t even play a single game in the whole tournament. If I was a communal person, I would have played them all the matches. Let’s not even get there, it’s really sad that I have to come on this platform and explain these things after playing for India for so long," Jaffer said.
