After shopping, when I started giving money to shopkeepers, they refused to take money from me: Virender Sehwag
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag could not get over the hospitality shown by Pakistani citizens. An Instagram page called The Intelligent Podcast shared a video titled “Reality of Pakistani People” of former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag, which has gone viral on social media.
In a video on social media, former Indian player Virender Sehwag told the host of the program that the Indian team visited Pakistan during 2003-2004, in which I was also included.
He said that after the Pakistan tour, I was married, so when I started returning to India from Lahore, I wanted some ladies’ suits and shoes, so I went shopping with my security personnel in a bazaar in Lahore. Bought 30 to 35 suits and shoes from different shops but when I started paying, these shopkeepers refused to take money from me.
He said that these shopkeepers refused to take money from me and said that you are our guest and how can we take money from our guest? So I told them that one two is free, but I want to buy more suits, so one of the shopkeepers said, “No, sir, this is your shop.” No shopkeeper took money from me.
Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag was one of the best attacking batsmen and used to bowl sometimes. He played his first one-day international in 1999 and played his first test match in 2001. It should be remembered that Virender Sehwag got married in 2004 after the Pakistan tour of 2003-2004.
