    Harbhajan's trysts with controversy
    January 7, 2008

    Although a spinner, Harbhajan Singh has got a fast bowler's temperament.

    This probably explains why he has been finding it increasingly difficult to steer himself clear of controversies.

    But even his detractors will also agree that the three-Test ban that the ICC has slapped on him for his alleged racial slur on Andrew Symonds in the second Test in Sydney is simply too harsh by any yardstick.

    One wonders what convinced the match referee Mike Procter, without any recorded proof, that Harbhajan was a culprit and Symonds an angel.

    No one knows exactly what transpired when Symonds was batting and Harbhajan was bowling to him. But it's likely that the Indian may have said a few words in the choicest Punjabi or Hindi to the Aussie, which the latter, as is his wont, might have mistaken for a racial abuse.

    Symonds is poor a victim of his own inferiority complex and tends to suspect anybody who says something to him, directly or indirectly and in a language he doesn't understand, even without any intention of hurting him or his sentiments. It's high time he became a true sport and showed some broadmindedness.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
