    Islamabad: The banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has asked Pakistani media groups to refrain from praising Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar.

    In a video message, Taliban spokesperson Shahidullah Shahid, flanked by two AK-47 wielding masked men, talks about Tendulkar's farewell to international cricket.

    "There is this Indian cricket player Sachin Tendulkar. It was unfortunate to see Pakistani media go to great extent to pay tribute to him," Shahid said in the video message.

    "On the other hand, it was sad to know same Pakistani media badly criticise captain Misbah-ul-Haq. No matter how good Tendulkar is, don't praise him because he is Indian. No matter how bad Misbah-ul-Haq plays, he should be praised because he is a Pakistani," the video shows the Taliban spokesperson as saying.

    The Pakistan media had extensively covered Tendulkar and his farewell speech was covered live.

    Pakistan media praised Tendulkar after he retired from the game on November 16.

    Newspapers paid rich tributes to Tendulkar saying, "The game of cricket will surely be the poorer without him".

    Dawn wrote Tendulkar's retirement marked the end of a truly memorable career that spanned nearly a quarter of a century.

    "Rated by critics and contemporaries as arguably the greatest postwar batsman to have played the game, Tendulkar continued to rewrite the record books with his brilliant batting skills since making his debut against Pakistan in Karachi way back in 1989," it wrote.

    The Express Tribune and Daily Times wrote Tendulkar is rightly considered the most complete batsman of his age, possessing every shot in the book and having the ability to both, tear apart bowling attacks and to control his natural aggression to suit the needs of his team.

    Insaaf, an Urdu daily, wrote cricketers like Tendulkar are not born every day. "He is widely loved and respected. His fans must be sad as cricket without him is surely the poorer."

    New Delhi, Dec 4: In a latest twist in Sachin Tendulkar news involving Taliban, the terror outfit seems to have got upset with media houses across the world.

    Taliban expressed its disappointment with news reports which, according to them, were being twisted.

    The News Daily quoted one unidentified Taliban leader as saying, "In Tuesday's meeting, we decided to target only journalists and media organisations which twisted the recent statement of Shahidullah Shahid and tried to tarnish Taliban's image nationally and internationally."

    "The task has been given to a select group of people within the Taliban to collect information about the journalists and media organisations who fabricated statement of the spokesman," he said.

    An initial clipped video of the TTP spokesperson was circulated on social media networks which showed TTP spokesperson criticising the Pakistani media over its coverage of Tendulkar.

    However, a longer video with his full remarks showed that he was not criticising the media but saying that those opposed to referring to dead militants as martyrs are like persons who do not want Tendulkar to be praised because he is an Indian.

    Even after the emergence of the full video, some local and many international media continued to report that Taliban had warned Pakistani media for the coverage of Tendulkar.
