India's decison to cancel Pak tour wrong: Imran Khan

New Delhi:

Former Pakistan cricket captain Imran Khan on Thursday said the decision to call off India's tour of Pakistan was not a right one.

"I think it is a wrong decision to call off the tour. India should have toured Pakistan for the same reason England toured India," the cricketer-turned-politician said of Indian government s decision in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks.

Imran said the cancellation of the tour was only going to cause antagonism and the cricket tour would have improved relations between the two nations.

"Responsibility of providing security lies with the host country and the last thing extremist elements would want is to target cricketers," Khan told NDTV.

Imran also said that terrorism was an illness that needed to be eradicated and for this maturity was needed at the highest level.

He said, "People will use the cancellation to create an anti-India sentiment".
