Is Misbah resident lover arahim a Barelvi/Sufi Muslim ?
Inzi deliberately sidelined Misbah ul Haq because of his Barelvi religious beliefs
Time & talent
Our larger than life former captain Inzi had deliberately sidelined the cricketing star
Misbah ul Haq, we hear, because of his religious beliefs. It appears Misbah is a convinced
Barelvi and did not budge from his beliefs despite Inzi's incessant proselytizing. Inzi
wanted him to convert to the Deobandi brand, to go on tableegh with him and to adhere in
all other respects to the austere tenets of the sect as other cricketers had done. Misbah
agreed to disagree and was kept out of the team's mainstream because of it. No sooner did
he get his due though, that it became obvious what a waste of time and talent it had been
to sideline Misbah, simply because he wouldn't change his faith.
