Sport: Fame, Fortune Or Mirage?

LAST week a prominent news agency report on former Olympian Muhammad Ashiq was spread like jungle fire and moved all those who once seen Pakistani players on the podium of international arenas.
The story of Muhammad Ashiq who represents Pakistan in Olympics of 1960 and 1964 is a tale of government apathy about the national players and now the country has reached at a point when from the nation of 220 million people less than 10 players are representing Pakistan in Rio Olympics 2016.Random Read1
Who is responsible of this entire downfall which contracted to cricket.
In a TV show, one of the Pakistan legend squash player Jegangir Khan lamenting government for not paying due attention on the sport in which Pakistan dominate for over 15 years in the world ranking and currently not a single player in top 5 slot.
Isn’t time for private sector to take care of themselves as its proved that the government has already seem failed to cope with such policies related for the betterment of the society in general.
There are already couples of cricket academies running by prominent players to not only created a permanent source of income for themselves but also help sports in general. So why not squash players doing similar this as they had earned millions in their prime time and have no need to complain of resources.
Its time for everyone to play their role and stop complaining and set a mechanism in which players like Muhammad Ashiq not became a source of story to bring tears in the readers eye.
