New Delhi. Former Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan said on the worldwide debate about racism that it is not just limited to skin color and people also face racial oppression due to religion. After the killing of African-American George Floyd in Minneapolis, protests took place across the country and sparked a worldwide debate about racism. Pathan wrote on Twitter, "Racism is not just limited to skin color.
Not being allowed to buy a house in the society due to any other religion is also racism. ”Pathan, who retired from all formats of the game earlier this year, played 29 Tests, 120 ODIs and 24 T20s for India. Played international matches. After the death of Floyd, international cricketers have also come forward to put their side in the case of racism in sports. These cricketers also include Chris Gayle and Darren Sammy of the West Indies. Sammy has alleged that during the 2014 IPL, some of his teammates from Sunrisers Hyderabad made racist remarks on him.
