Razzaq recieves criticism for his sexist comments on Nida


Former national cricketer Abul Razzaq is currently on the edge of criticism for passing sexist comments related to female cricketer Nida Dar in a comedy talk show.

Razzaq and Nida appeared in ‘G Sarkar with Nauman Ijaz’ on Neo Tv. During the show, Nida was asked if women athletes always have to leave the sport after marriage.

“Do you have some kind of allergy with marriage? You don’t want to talk about it at all,” the cricketer was bantered.

Dar commented, “They try to play the sport as much as they can since you never know after the wedding.”

While intervening in the conversation, Razzaq said women athletes do not marry as they always try to compete with their male counterparts.

“Oh, they don’t get married,” Razzaq said. “Their field is as such. When they become cricketers, they strive to be as equal as their male counterparts, if not better than them. They want to prove that not only men but women can also do it,” the cricketer shared his belief.

“The feeling [to get married] is gone [by the time they excel. If you shake her [Dar] hand, she is anything but feminine,” this comment by Razzaq put him in hot waters.

People on Twitter didn’t like a public figure like Razzaq making such comments about her female compatriot.
