Many Indian cricketers including Mohammad Shami, Harbhajan Singh, Irfan Pathan and Virender Sehwag have lashed out at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan ever since his 'hateful speech' at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh refused to relent in his critisicm of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan as he took on actress Veena Malik on social media.

Harbhajan had tweeted, "At UNGA speech, there were indications for India of potential nuclear war. As a prominent sportsperson, Imran Khan's choice of words 'bloodbath' 'fight to the end' will only increase hatred between the two nations. As a fellow sportsperson, I expect him to promote peace."

Taking a jibe at him, Veena retorted: "PM Imran Khan did talk about peace in his speech. He talked about the reality and the horror that will surly occur when the curfew is lifted and sadly there's gonna be a bloodbath. He clearly states that it's not a threat but a fear. Don't you understand English? (sic)"

Harbhajan shot back again, mocking Veena's English. "What do u mean by surly? Oh is it surely ?? chill pill next time try and read before u put something in English. (sic)"

Pakistan Prime Minister had held out threats of a conventional war between the two nuclear-armed neighbours spinning out of control during his speech at UNGA on September 27th.

"If a conventional war starts between the two countries, anything could happen. A country seven times smaller than its neighbour what will it do -- either surrender or fight for its freedom," he had said.
