Ajmal becomes member of a religious group!
Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has become an active member of a leading Sunni Muslim religious movement after his international career was derailed this year due to a change in his bowling action, according to sources.
Videos of Ajmal wearing a green turban and giving short sermons on religion have been making the rounds on a social messaging service soon after he returned from Saudi Arabia after performing Haj.
Sources close to Ajmal said that the senior player had started attending sessions of the Dawat-e-Islami, a leading religious movement of the Sunni Muslim Barelvi sect with headquarters in Karachi and its centres all over the world. Followers of the Dawat-e-Islami distinguish themselves by wearing green turbans.
