This remark comes in the backdrop of Pakistan officials desperately attempting to revive the international cricket in the country and literally pleading other nations, including India, to come and play in the terror-hit country.

Speaking to reporters at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, Awan said: “India has created many barriers in our path and promoted false propaganda on all forums to stop international cricket in Pakistan.

“Until India frees the people of occupied Kashmir, any matches between the countries will only pour salt on the wounds of the Kashmiris,” she said. “To ensure peace in the world and in the region, India needs to remove the curfew imposed in the valley and give the Kashmiris their rights.

“Once our point of difference is settled, who wouldn’t want there to be cultural exchanges between the two countries? But this will not be possible if Indian inhumanity in the valley continues,” she maintained.

Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said that India will not play in Pakistan in this year’s Asia Cup tournament, although is the team is ready to play on ‘neutral’ venue.

Pakistan is hosting the tournament in September, just ahead of the International Cricket Council T20 World Cup in Australia in October and November.

BCCI in a statement said – “The question isn’t about the PCB hosting the tournament. It is about the venue and, as things stand now, it is quite clear that we would need a neutral venue. There is no way that an Indian team can visit Pakistan to even participate in a multi-nation event like the Asia Cup.

If the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is OK with an Asia Cup minus India then it is a different ball game. But if India is to participate in the Asia Cup, then the venue cannot be Pakistan.”

Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board chief executive Wasim Khan told the local media that Pakistan would pull out of the 2021 T20 World Cup in India in response to India’s Asia Cup stance. Khan later said his comments had been taken out of context and Pakistan remained committed to next year’s tournament.
