Sprint legend Milkha Singh today advocated resumption of sporting ties between India and Pakistan, as sports help in developing friendship between countries. “In sports, our teams should go there (Pakistan) and their teams should come here,” Singh, popularly known as ‘the Flying Sikh’, said. He was talking to reporters here in the state capital, after flagging off a half marathon race. “I would ask both Pakistan and India that it would be better if they live with love and affection… We should play games as much as possible as sports help in developing friendship,” Singh said. After Pakistan aided a terror attack in Pathankot in 2016, India have severed sporting ties with the country.
