NEW DELHI, June 5: Former India star Yuvraj Singh on Friday apologised for making a casteist remark against Yuzvendra Chahal during an Instagram chat, saying he �unintentionally� hurt public sentiments.
It was during one of the Instagram live sessions with Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma that Yuvraj made the offensive comment about Chahal while talking about his regular social media posts.
In fact, an advocate from Hisar filed a police complaint against India�s twin World Cup winning hero, who was forced to issue an apology on his twitter page.
�I understand that while I was having a conversation with my friends, I was misunderstood, which was unwarranted. However, 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,� he wrote.
The veteran of 304 ODIs, 58 T20Is and 40 Tests also clarified that he has �never believed� in any kind of discrimination.
�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. I have given and continue to spend my life for the welfare of people.�
�I believe in the dignity of life and respect each individual without exception,� he said. � PTI
