Cricketer Inzamam’s Hindu aunt, whom he came to Hisar to meet and then went to Pakistan


Before partition, Inzamam’s father and his family lived in a village in Hisar.When Inzamam came to India, he got a phone number for which his family had been waiting for years.The father immediately called on this number and after years of separation, the strings of relations were reconnected.

For former Pakistani cricketer and coach Inzamam Ul Haq, the family of a village in Hisar is very special. His father went to Pakistan after partition but could never forget that family of Hisar. And then Inzamam met a Hindu aunt. So that their relationship could be reconnected.

Inzamam ul Haq and his family are still thankful to that family, who not only saved the lives of his entire family during the partition but also helped them cross the border safely and reach Multan.

When Inzamam came to India a few years ago, he met a young man from Haryana, who gave him a telephone number, which belonged to his mother Pushpa Goyal. The young man asked him to give this number to his parents in Multan.

Inzamam was stunned then

At first Inzamam was stunned as to why this young man was giving him his mother’s number, but when he came to know the truth, his eyes became moist and his head bowed with reverence in front of that young man.

Father called immediately

As soon as Inzamam sent Pushpa Goyal’s number to his father in Multan. Her father’s call immediately reached Pushpa. He had still not been able to forget that Pushpa, whose family had come forward as his messiah at a time when the borders were divided during Partition and people on both sides were thirsty for each other’s blood. Then he found shelter in Pushpa Goyal’s house and was safe.

specially invited to the wedding

Inzamam’s father’s family then lived in Hansi in Hisar district of Haryana. Later, Pushpa was specially invited to Inzamam’s wedding and she was invited. He had then said that for me, going to that wedding was as if I was attending a program of my own family. This trip to Multan will always be memorable for me.

Inzamam wanted to go to his ancestral village in Hisar

Inzamam is still known as the great gentleman of Multan in Pakistani cricket. When he came to Mohali with the Pakistani team, he became emotional while playing there. Tears welled up in his eyes when he said in front of the television that he wanted to go to Hansi, from where his family had migrated in 1947. Then he asked people through TV whether they remembered anything about Hansi’s Pirzada Zia Ul Haq.

Pakistan board did not give permission

Inzamam also wanted to go to his village, where his father spent his childhood and where his grandfather had a big mansion, so that he could take photos there and give them to his father and refresh old memories, but the Pakistan Cricket Board did not allow him to go there. Didn’t give. Not only that, during that tour his captain Rameez Raja also wanted to go to his ancestral village near Jaipur but he too was not allowed to do so.
