Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar is a member of the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires and has officiated in almost 300 international matches. In the ongoing India-South Africa series, he had officiated in the first three matches and was also scheduled to umpire in the fourth and fifth ODIs in Chennai and Mumbai.

However, the ICC had to withdraw the umpire from the rest of the series in India after Shiv Sena protested against any ties with Pakistan and gheraoed BCCI chief Shashank Manohar in his office forcing cancellation of talks with PCB chief Shaharyar Khan.

Latest reports suggest that former Pakistani cricketers-turned-commentators Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar will also leave after the fourth ODI and not come to Mumbai due to security concerns.

This is the latest in the Shiv Sena's protests against Pakistanis in the city after cancelling ghazal singer Ghulam Ali's concert and attempting to disrupt the book launch of former  Pakistan minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri.

Understandably, Indian Twitterati were not happy with this development and have slammed the party for its violent protests. Former cricketers, journalists and fans alike have tweeted in support of Dar, calling out Shiv Sena out on the threats.
