I won't fault Mathew Hayden for whatever he has expressed.
May be even I would feel disappointed if our Civilian Honours are conferred on citizens of other countries.

It was Hayden, who called Indians people of third world country....... when the controversy about Harbhajan using foul words against one of their players surfaced.He is not only jealous but also too proud of his origin.He still considers us backward n people of the primitive age n the people of white color as advanced.

Yes ! For Sure....just recall the controversy Andrew Simonds levelled against Bhaji in Australia....if they sledge on the field itz their game plan ...but if Indians will retalite their sledge in the same tone then they will be penalized .... whose justice can it be....Rather itz a fact that the Aussies are the descendants of those ostracized pirates and criminals whom the British Royal Administration could not control but driven out of their empire to the southern hemisphere....for rehabilitation....thatz why they are found more extremists and arrogants in comparison to moderate British ppl.....and how can one expect that they would tolerate any award conferred on an Indian whose records seems to be untouchable by them....???

May be he is correct from his own angle, but the truth is Ausees are the too much arrogant and egoistic by nature and can not expect better response from atleast 50% of their country men.

Out of jealousy and racialism even he said in annoyance that sachin should be made pm
few other mps have objected but it is normal many countries bestow such awards to citizens of other countries.
