Olympic-bound ringster Vikas Krishan Yadav on 17th August (Monday) espoused the resumption of sporting events between India and Pakistan. He believes that by organizing different sports events between India and Pakistan, healthy relations will be established. He also said it would be great if a boxing tournament is arranged between the two nations.
Yadav’s journey so far
Vikas Krishnan Yadav has represented India at Global Level and has also bagged Gold Medal in the 2010 Asian Games and 2018 Commonwealth Games. He is the second Indian Boxer who has qualified for three times in the Olympic Games after Vijendra Singh.
The Olympic Boxer is currently training in Bellary, Karnataka, for Tokyo Games. In an interview with IANS, he said that he met Pakistani Boxers last year in Asian Games, and they are also keen to play with India. They wish to see India and Pakistan join hands again. He further added that sports would help develop a good friendship between the two nations, and we all must unite for the betterment of the people. However, Vikas is also against the terrorist activities governed by Pakistan and said that Pakistan should stop favoring terrorism and should behave like a good neighbor to bridge the gap between the two countries.
His comments regarding the resumption of events
Vikas Yadav firmly believes that Humanity is above all the other aspects, and the world will be a better place by spreading love and affection. Getting into an ugly fight will only cause harm to society, and both countries will suffer.
Vikas Yadav’s response came after Amir Khan, British Boxer of Pakistani-origin, shared the same thoughts. In an interview, Amir Khan said that both India and Pakistan should unite and fight their common enemy, poverty. He also wants to see India and Pakistan in a good state and that he will be pleased to see them united.
