Pakistan reacts to defeat with anger

Minutes after Shoaib Malik's team lost the Twenty20 World Cup final to India in Johannesburg, angry Pakistani cricket lovers burnt effigies of Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi to vent their anger.

In yet another incident that revealed that people in Pakistan can be very unforgiving when it comes to conceding defeat against India, the incident occurred at a stadium in Lahore [Images] where the Asian Football Confederation tournament was being played.

In Karachi too, mobs gathered to raise slogans against the Pakistani players, particularly Afridi and Younis.

"What the hell! This is the second time we lost a match to India in the World Cup. Such a big match and such careless play from senior players like Younis and Afridi. It is so disappointing to lose like this to India," Kamil Butt said, as his friends engaged in animated discussion on the final in a fast-food restaurant.

Given the level of interest in the final, five-star hotels, fast food chains and small restaurants had set up television screens and arranged special Iftaar menus to attract crowds.

"We were so happy at half time because we restricted the Indians to just 157. On such a wicket, we were sure Pakistan will finally beat India in a World Cup match," complained Shakir, a student.

Seventh grade education coupled with a seventh century mindset.

But isn't cricket and football not allowed...their mohammod didn't have either.

Like the crazy islamics in Bagdad...claiming that since mohammad never had ice no one else should..even in a 120 degree summer.

From another Cricket thread that Sukhoi 30 posted:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1901879/posts

"At the award ceremony, Malik thanked Muslims all over for their support to the team on a day when two Indian Muslims were part of the victorious team and one of them was declared the Man of the Match. "

Ramadan had a hand on both sides.

What’s really daft is that the Indian team had about 4 Muslims out of a team of 12/13
