ISLAMABAD - Former eight-time world squash champion Jansher Khan has lashed out at the conspirators, who are trying to dethrone World Junior Team Squash champion Pakistan by levelling baseless and false allegations regarding their ages.

Jansher, who holds unique record of winning a whopping 686 professional international titles, expressed these views while talking to The Nation on Tuesday. Jansher, who is also advisor to Pakistan Squash Federation (PSF) president Air Chief Marshal Soahil Aman, showed his extreme anger on the baseless news, terming these rumours as baseless.

“Some circles in the country are spreading such baseless rumours, the purpose of which is to spoil our great victory. They can’t absolve Pakistan win titles. It was not the triumph of any individual instead it was victory of the country and it was achieved purely due to hard work, superb training and players dedication and hunger to excel at the top,” he added.

Jansher denied all these baseless allegations saying the people spread these rumors just to attack the integrity of our beloved country. “The people, who dare to do this, are enemy of the country and trying to undermine the achievement of the players, federation and coach Amjed Kahn.”

Jansher said that he would examine the case and after going through details and actual facts, he would take action in the best interest of the game and the country and would strongly recommend the PSF to take legal course of action against those who are involved in trying to bring a huge embracement for the players and the country. “These players are in the circuit since long and anybody, who has any doubts regarding their ages, should have raised that concern prior to start of the event or soon after. It makes no sense of undermining our achievements by hurling baseless and totally wrong allegations.

“We are a highly responsible nation and have ruled the world of squash for decades. We don’t need to use unfair means for meager benefits or cheap publicity for winning the titles. We know how to produce champions and are working on a long-term plan to regain our past glory. We are a squash-loving nation and will not allow anybody to get away with insulting remarks or baseless allegations, which don’t have any ground reality,” Jansher concluded.
