KARACHI: Reasons behind decline and deterioration of Pakistan’s national game – hockey – could easily be understood now following this recent example of apathy.

A video shows motorcyclists riding their two-wheelers on expensive blue astroturf in the Abdul Sattar Edhi Stadium in Karachi, formerly 'Hockey Club of Pakistan Stadium' during a family event.

Reports say the turf is installed with cost of more than five million rupees and was imported from Europe.

But, the officials of Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) have turned blind eye to such events, leaving the sports institutions in tatters.

Speaking to Samaa, former Olympian Waseem Feroz and Hockey legend Samiullah Khan condemned the incident, saying that the authorities should not allow such events. – Samaa
