Former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad made a shocking statement about underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. Praising Ibrahim, Miandad said that he is not like what others think of him. It is to be noted that Miandad’s son, Junaid Miandad is married to Dawood Ibrahim’s daughter Mahrukh Ibrahim. The former cricketer said that he has known Ibrahim for a long time, and he is not what people think him to be. 

Notably, Dawood Ibrahim is a wanted criminal in India and is the mastermind behind the 1993 serial bomb blasts which took more than 250 lives in Mumbai.

It’s an honour that his daughter married my son: Javed Miandad on Dawood Ibrahim

The 66-year-old cricketer spoke to Pakistani journalist Hassan Nisar on the latter’s YouTube channel. He said, “I have known him for a long time, from Dubai. It is an honour for me that his daughter married my son. My daughter-in-law is very well-educated; she studied in a convent school and went to a renowned university.” He went on to say, “Understanding the real Dawood Ibrahim is not easy. The way people think about the family, they are not like that.” 

Apart from revealing his equation and relation with Dawood Ibrahim, Miandad also revealed the reason behind why he became a cricketer. Miandad said, “Cricket is a family game for me. My father played it, my elder brother Bashir Miandad played it, then my two younger brothers Anwar and Sohail, both played first-class cricket.”
