Mahira Khan has lent her support to Pakistani footballers amid the current tussle between the Ashfaq-led group and FIFA-installed Normalisation Committee (NC) of Pakistan Football Federation (PFF).
While reacting to the video of national captain Hajra Khan lamenting the current incident that happened at the PFF which postponed the National Women’s Football Championship, Khan wrote: “Respect the game!!! Respect the players!!”
Earlier, Yumna Zaidi also raised her voice on the current PFF incident and said it is hurting players in general.
It must be noted here that the Supreme Court of Pakistan held elections in PFF and Syed Ashfaq Hussain was elected president through it. Later on, FIFA denied those elections and dismissed Ashfaq from his post, bringing their NC to hold free and fair elections.
NC failed to hold elections even after 19 months with getting extension twice by FIFA. The Ashfaq-led group reacted to this matter and took charge of the PFF headquarters last week.
NC’s chairman alleged Ashfaq and his men of forcefully taking charge of the PFF house. Following the incident at the PFF, FIFA reacted and warned Ashraf to leave the house otherwise Pakistan could face international suspension once again.
