Srinagar: Celebrated Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar Thursday announced that he will be offering free food to unemployed in his restaurant amid coronavirus outbreak.
Dar, who has officiated in 386 international matches, said that in these tough times people need to come forward and help needy.
“Coronavirus has spread all over the world, and its effects are now being seen in Pakistan as well,” said the former first-class cricketer in a video message.
“The provincial governments and the central government has issued measures for you to follow for your safety.
“However, without our support, our government cannot control this. I request all people to follow the instructions as directed by the government.
“During this lockdown, people have become jobless. I own a restaurant named Dar’s Delighto on Pia Road in Lahore. People who are jobless especially can come there and eat food for free.”
