ICC apologises as India rape guru tweet causes political row

ICC apologises as India rape guru tweet causes political rowCricket’s world governing body apologised Wednesday after leaving a sarcastic remark on a video showing Prime Minister Narendra Modi sharing a stage with an Indian guru convicted of raping a teenage girl. The International Cricket Council went into damage control after its Twitter account posted the Hindu prayer “Narayan, Narayan” (Oh Lord, Oh Lord) beneath a video of Modi standing with Asaram Bapu. Asaram, one of India’s self-styled spiritual gurus who commands a following of millions, was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday for raping a teenage devotee in 2013.
