“One Jewish life is equal to one Muslim life is equal to one Hindu life”: Usman Khawaja breaks down during his message for critics and ICC

Usman Khawaja has been widely criticised for trying to wear shoes with a special note for the people of Palestine. Former Australia players have told him to keep the politics away from the game. Even the rules and regulations don’t allow him to go ahead with his message. Khawaja could be fined or banned if he doesn’t follow the guidelines.

He is disappointed that his act of showing support for the innocent lives has been made controversial and political.

“I don’t treat human lives on the basis of cast, creed, region and religion. For me all human lives are equal. One Jewish life is equal to one Muslim life is equal to one Hindi life. My issues are not political.

“I am speaking for those who don’t have a voice. This is close to my heart. When I see thousands of children dying without any morse, I imagine my two girls.

“My heart can’t take it when I see the world turning their back on those kids.

“The ICC says I can’t wear tbe shoes because my message is political. It is not as I am making a humanitarian appeal. I respect your decision but I will fight it out to get the approval,” Usman Khawaja said.

He open the innings with David Warner in the first Test against Pakistan in Perth.
