دنیا کے کونے کونے میں پاکستانی پرچم لہرانے والے چاچا کرکٹ رضائے الہی سے وفات پاگئے اللّه تعالیٰ مغفرت فرمائے آمین
اِنّا لِلّٰهِ وَاِنّا اِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُوْن#chachacricket@chachacricketpk pic.twitter.com/10BMNpasQR

The report of his death which has been denied to be true was first published by a website (http://www.pakpassion.net/)
“It is very sad to announce that one of the most imminent Pakistan Cricket team enthusiast Baba Mehr Deen of Wagah Border much known as Chacha Pakistani, has died at the age of 90. The deceased breathed his last in Lahore today. The reason of his death is still not ascertained yet.
It is very heartrending to accept that another veteran of our society has left us who for the last 60 years, regularly visited the border during the ceremonies as he was always there to lead the crowd, chanting and raising slogans in favour of Pakistan.
Many people have witnessed his enthusiasm and patriotism for Pakistan when they visited the Border to see the ‘lowering of the flags’ ceremony’ in Lahore.
We pray for the forgiveness of his sins and may Allah bless his soul with eternal peace. Ameen.”
But a report from a reliable source has debunked the rumour revealing that the old man is not dead but still much alive.
“Alhamdulillah Chacha Cricket is absolutely fine and in good health. Please avoid sharing such news without verification.”
