rafi bhai, modi is a kid compared to the people who own the franchises, it's literally the who's who of India's powerful corporate world.
mumbai Indians : mukesh ambani (richest Indian and 7th richest person worldwide),
RCB : vijay mallya (owns a formula 1 team, an airline, 2 national football clubs and a liqour empire)
KXIP : ness wadia (wadia group) also Md ali jinnah's great grandson !
DD : KP singh (DLF group)

and so on.

modi has no power to order these people around, it's their own business decision not to opt for pakistani players.

even yesterday pak PM gilani has said that he gives NO guarantee that another terrorist attack on India from pakistani soil won't happen.
do you think if another mumbai attack happens, pak players will play in India for IPL ?
why would the franchise owners want to waste millions of $$$ on them in that case ?
