Twitter community thrashes Tarek Fatah for calling Inzamam ‘a Mullah’

Just a day before the India-Pakistan Cricket World Cup match, author Tarek Fatah tweeted a picture of Inzamam-ul-Haq, calling him ‘13th Man, a Mullah’.


  • Internet community thrashed controversial author Tarek Fatah for calling Inzamam-ul-Haq a‘13th Man, a Mullah’.
  • He also said that Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has brought out a ‘mullah’ to bless the pitch prior to India-Pakistan match.
  • Fatah even congratulated the user on Twitter for “sharing this gem”.
  • In his hatred for Pakistan, he even failed to distinguish between facts and fiction.

While the emotions were hitting the roof just before the iconic Pakistan-India cricket battle, author Tarek Fatah took another jab at Pakistan, landing him in internet humiliation. The Pakistan-born author and journalist who is currently staying in Canada is known for this blind and directionless hatred for his native country.

This time, it went a little too far. Taking to Twitter, Fatah mistook cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq for a mullah. He said captain Sarfaraz Ahmed brought “their 13th Man, a Mullah to bless the pitch for tomorrow’s match against India”.

The picture he shared was featuring Sarfraz Ahmed, Micky Arthur, and former Pakistan cricketer Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Fatah’s misleading ’13th Man, a Mullah’:

Taking to Twitter, Tarek called it a ‘bizarre’ spectacle that a ‘mullah’ is present on the pitch. He sarcastically added that it is a ‘a bizarre spectacle only Pakistanis can offer’. Fatah apparently shared the picture which was originally posted by one user Sachin Singh.

The Cricket World Cup 2019 witnesses a bizarre spectacle only Pakistanis can offer. Capt. @SarfarazA_54 Ahmed brings out their 13th Man, a Mullah to bless the pitch for tomorrow’s match against India. Thank you @Sachin_anshu06 for sharing this gem.

Fatah even went on congratulating the user on Twitter for “sharing this gem”. Following him, other users who have also shared this same photo on Facebook with similar misleading claims.

The particular photograph was originally taken by news agency AFP and then used by Indian and global newspapers like The Times of India with the caption “Sarfaraz Ahmed, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mickey Arthur at Old Trafford Cricket Stadium in Manchester. (AFP Photo)” on June 15, 2019.


Soon, Fatah had to face the embarrassment and was schooled by the Twitter community for his blind, baseless and factually incorrect hatred towards Pakistan.
