ISLAMABAD - Former world squash champion Jansher Khan has asked top ranking international squash players of the world to participate in the forthcoming Pakistan Open Squash Championship as Pakistan is the safe country for players. He was talking to reporters in the Meet-The-Press programme of the Rawalpindi Islamabad Press Club's camp office on Thursday and said that he was also a world champion and living this country safely. "Although there are bit security problems in the country, but overall Pakistan is a safe place for sportspersons. At present around 50 players from the different countries are playing tennis in Islamabad and I think squash is played at even safer place than tennis, "he viewed. Jansher hoped that Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) would provide full security to foreign players during the Pakistan Open Squash Championship, which is scheduled to be played from November 8 to 15 at Mushaf Squash Complex, Islamabad. "Pakistan top players have do not have the abilities to win Pakistan Open. The PSF should invest money on young players instead of holding international events in Pakistan," he said. He further said that the performance of top national players in the world open exposed the PSF's policies. "We cannot produce a world champion through this system till 2025, as the high ups of the federation are claiming to win the world open in 2011. They should hire the services of former world champions and they should also be the part of federation for the suggestion and advises for the promotion of game in the country, "he demanded. Former world champion over and over again said that the federation should be run professionally. "They should establish academies under the control of former world champions in the major cities to groom talent. Gogi, Mohib and other should be given chance to serve their country. Gogi is better coach than me," he said. While answering a question, Jansher denied that he had any controversy with the Pakistan Squash Federation. "I want the promotion of squash and this game is my love and passion. I cannot see squash in this situation. We were on top in the world for many decades but it's going down. At one time we were world champion but now we are losing our position at Asian level," he lamented.
