Former Pakistani cricketer Miandad is famous for his rants and controversial behaviour, both on and off the field. The ex-cricketer has said that Pakistan was ready for an all out war against India.

Talking to a Pakistani news channel about India's surgical strike across the Line of Control (LoC), Miandad said, "We are ready for martyrdom. Our nation cannot be cowed down by hollow threats."

"Ye laaton ke bhoot baaton se baaz nahi aate, inko laate hi maarni padengi (Pakistan shouldn't get scared India's empty threats, it should respond in action),"Miandad was quoted as saying by the channel. "They (Indians) are cowards. Action is the best reaction," he added.

In an interview with Samaa TV, Miandad ranted on, "I want to tell the people of India that there are some people in your country who can get you killed. You should come together and unite against such people..."

He then abused Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Miandad said, "I have travelled a lot in India during my cricketing days. I know that the general public is not like that. But there are people like Narendra Modi, who is an egg. An egg who doesn't know about his father or mother."

He carried on, "He doesn't know who he is threatening. We are ready for war. We are ready for martyrdom. Every Pakistani, even every child is ready to fight and die for this holy war."

The explosive right-handed batsmen is famous for the heated altercations he had with opposition cricketers during his playing days. His on-field spat with Indian wicketkeeper Kiran More during the 1992 World Cup group match is one of the most famous slapstick moments of cricket history.

He also famously went after former Australian paceman Dennis Lilee with a bat after he had enough of the fast bowler's sledging. 

Well, Indian Twitterati couldn't just sit by and let Miandad have the last word. So they took to the micro blogging site and decided to remind the former cricketer of his familial connection to terrorist and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
