Default Is Wasim Akram really clean?

Former Pakistan cricket captain Wasim Akram has rubbished claims that he has sought a pardon from President Pervez Musharraf for acquiring assets beyond his earnings .

Reacting to a Sunday Telegraph report that said it was in possession of such a letter written by Akram in 1999, Wasim said it was "false and utter nonsense".

"I, Wasim Akram, s/o Chaudhry Muhammad Akram, having been associated with the probe that has/is being conducted by the Accountability Cell, Prime Minister's Office, do hereby acknowledge that my known incomes/assets are disproportionate to my lawful declared sources of income. This has led to certain negative perceptions in the public mind /press, nationally and internationally," the letter says as claimed by the paper.

The report went on, "I request the president of Pakistan , who is also the patron of the Pakistan Cricket Board, to pardon me from the above associated omissions/commissions that have been committed in the past. I hereby declare on oath that if I am again privileged and honored to represent Pakistan in international matches, I shall ensure that I shall abide by the PCB/ ICC Code of Conduct on the above matter."

Maybe he is not, is that unusual or such a big crime ?

What the article hints at is that he has not paid tax for some of his income (through advertisements or presents or whatever). But in India (and most probably the rest of the subcontinent) except the unfortunate few who earn monthly salaries, very few of the rest pay tax for all that they earn.

Tintin bhai is right! tax-dodgers run amock in our part of the world! Wasim is no more evil than 85% of our priveleged population. Nevertheless, he is in the spotlight...and there is no doubt that he is quite greedy.

george bush is a monkey... u cannot insult the female species like that... even while making a sarcastic comment like that...

FYI, the queen of england IS my aunt... lemme prove it to u... She is the queen mother (rani maa) of all Brits... and I have a friend who is a brit citizen thus making the queen his Rani maa too... and thus making her my aunt...

Well, if you are a muslim and somehow related to our esteemed prophet, then you are related to the woman. I read somewhere that she is one of his descendents.. :duh:
