NEW DELHI: Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who found himself in the eye of a storm following a remark he made for Yuzvendra Chahal, which was called ‘casteist’ by many, on Friday clarified that he never believed in any kind of disparity and expressed his regret for unintentionally hurting sentiments.
Yuvraj made the said remarks while having an online conversation with Rohit Sharma.
The left-handed batsman took to Twitter to post his clarification message.
“This is to clarify that I have never believed in any kind of disparity, be it on the basis of caste, colour, creed or gender,” the post read.

“…as a responsible Indian I want to say that if I have unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments or feelings, I would like to express regret for the same,” the post further read.
Earlier on Thursday, a police complaint was reportedly filed against Yuvraj for the said remark.
“Ye b****i logon ko koi kaam nahi hai Yuzi ko… Yuzi ko dekha kaisa video daala (these people like Yuzi don’t have anything to do…did you see what kind of video Yuzi shared),” Yuvraj was heard as saying in a video which went viral on social media.
“Maine usko woi bola ki apne baap ko nacha raha hai tu pagal to nahi hai (I asked him has he gone mad that he is making his father dance),” replied Rohit.
According to reports Dalit rights activist and advocate Rajat Kalsan has filed a police complaint against Yuvraj in Hansi in Hisar. The report further stated that Kalsan has also demanded Yuvraj’s arrest.
Yuvraj has been facing huge backlash on social media, with netizens asking the former Indian all-rounder to apologise for his comment.
