The above caption is a reference used in the military and wartimes. It’s original meaning is; before you attack you decide that you will kill everybody on the battlefield, regardless whether they try to fight you or try to give up or, surrender. Another view of the original term was to “Give no quarter.” Again to kill everyone. Even if they throw down their arms and give up or, plead mercy – shoot them. It may sound very cruel ??? Yes, indeed it is.
Which is how it is now applied in the business and sports world. It means to be ruthless. To get ahead at the expense of other. Or on a lighter side – Don’t fail either way – It is a bad model to follow and karma will get you with ruthless behavior. If you want to see an example of “take no prisoners” in the movie…watch Lawrance of Arabia. After the Turks destroyed a village…Lawrence yells. “No prisoners” over and over … for the revenge of the dead villagers, they go on to kill every one without regard.
WE have used the caption of this thread metaphorically, it doesn’t mean kill the trio but, kill their cricketing career for what they have done. There is no denial that they are not involved in betting and match fixing. Guilty or NOT, punish ALL the culprits besides the three accused, including Other Majeed & Mother Majeed and not to mention the other Pakistani players who were involved in this case whose names are cropping up every now and then. Because, they have brought a bad name not only to the game but, to the country and the nation as a whole.
Had Justice Qayyum’s verdict been implemented 12 years ago, this may not have happened today. Pakistan is a country where nothing is permissible but, everything is possible. The highest court of the country passes a verdict and the PCB ignores it and apply their own rules, which are no rules but exceptions.
The lawyers in England have pitched Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif against each other and Salman at times was so agitated, frustrated that he was breaking down and replied very harshly to the questions. They will not scape punishment for sure because their case is very weak and on top of that, Mohammad Aamir was changed his statement. Which once again shows that there is something more than what meets the eye?
In my opinion, Aamir should NEVER be given a chance to play for Pakistan EVER AGAIN. He has no credibility, he is not straightforward and he took the sides of the culprits when he was assured that nothing will happen, when he saw that he is out of the team – in fact out of cricket action at any level – he got shiver down the spine and then he started approaching people on how to come back? If there is any way? And, some simpleton suggested that now you take a complete U- turn and give your statements against Salman Butt and Asif that they forced you or enticed you and you being so young, inexperience, vulnerable and gullible fall for it without realizing the grave consequences. So, he is now take the role of a BHOLA BUCCHA.
He is not that Bhola, he may say he is 18 years old or what ever, but he certainly looks much older and more matured than his age. Eighteen is the age for an individual in North America to cast your vote to elect your leader. 18 is the age in Canada where you get your driving licence, 18 is the age in Canada where you can buy alcohol on your from a store. So, eighteen years old is not a kid. He knew how to make money, he was a part and parcel of the spot fixing saga and now he acts innocent?
People say, give him a second chance he is just a kid, don’t ruin his career he is so very talented. If you do give him a second chance what message are you conveying to the thousand other Aamirs who are spreading their wings to fly? Why stick to this one only. Do you think a bowler like Aamir will born in the next ONE MILLION years? Please stop worshiping. On one hand Pakistanis make fun of Tendulkar for being treated as a deity and on the other hand they treat their own players as one in a million (they cannot call them god because they will be executed by the Mullahs) so this is the stance they take and try to create a lobby and apply pressure on the authorities and that breeds regionalism and jingoism.
Mohammad Asif MUST have been banned after the Dubai incident, I wonder why they keep playing him again and again? Wasim, Waqar, Aaqib Javed and Mushy must have been banned for life after they were caught on the beach smoking Marijuana or Cannabis and jailed in the Caribbean for 2 nights. All that was hushed, hushed and covered up because these were the elite team members. Why do they have such dual standards?
If Aamir is included in the team after all this, then all the young fast bowlers will get a wrong message and they will end up saying, “Yaar, abhee tou match fix kero aur paisay banao, baad ki baad dekhi jai gee.” This is the uneducated, uncouth and uncivilized attitude that we so often see among the Pakistani players. Those who are honest are sidelined and those who are the culprits they thrive, because they feed the system which is like a hand in glove with the players.
So, the bottom line is, IF SALMAN BUTT & MOHAMMAD ASIF ARE BANNED, THEN MOHAMMAD AAMER SHOULD NOT BE SPARED, NO SYMPATHIES FOR AGE. After all he was a member of the Pakistan International Team and not a toddler. BAN HIM FOR LIFE TOO. SHOW NO MERCY.
