Gaddafi stadium- Pakistan reluctant to disown its collaboration with the Butcher of Libyans

Freedom lovers in Pakistan have cried out for effacing Gaddafi’s name at their showcase cricket filed at Lahore, yet the Pakistani regime that is Islamist and itslef an abuser of human rights is fidning it difficult even after Israelis and Hindus have voiced their disgust at Kaddafi regime and want him taken out and cast into dustbin of history.
This sure to estrange the free Libyan nation and its bleeding people that Pakistan stood by the adoration of a war criminal and took its own time and shame to do it?
That is after it sees clearly that Kaddafi is a lost bet?

Originally Lahore Stadium, the facility was renamed in 1974 in honour of Libyan leader Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi following a speech he gave at an Organisation of the Islamic Conference meeting in favour of Pakistan’s right to pursue nuclear weapons.[citation needed] The stadium houses the headquarters of the Pakistan Cricket Board.
In 1995-96, the Gaddafi Stadium was renovated by architect Nayyar Ali Dada for the 1996 Cricket World Cup. Dada’s redesign was done in the Mughal style, with red, hand-laid brickwork and arches. Dada also had plastic seating installed in place of the existing concrete benches. The lower portion under the stands was enclosed and converted to shops for boutiques and offices. Gaddafi Stadium was the first in Pakistan to be equipped with modern floodlights having their own standby power generators.[citation needed]
