All patriotic Indians must hang their heads in shame at the bitter and bigoted targeting of Wasim Jaffer. He is an invaluable asset of cricket.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
