1. I recommended Jay Bista for the captain position, not Iqbal, but CAU officials preferred Iqbal.
2. I did not invite Maulavis
3. I resigned due to the selectors-secretary bias for undeserving players
4. The team used to say a Sikh community chant, I suggested we could say “Go Uttarakhand” #Facts https://t.co/8vZSisrDDl

The problem is reached due to allegations

Wasim Jaffer has been accused of giving preference to Muslim players. With that, Jaffer says the allegations hurt him a lot. Jaffer said, “The angle of the community set up is very sad. He alleged that I supported Iqbal Abdulla and wanted to appoint him captain, which is totally wrong. Please say that Jaffer resigned his coaching post on Tuesday due to interference in the selection and the partisan attitude of the coaches and the secretary of the association.

Jaffer wanted to make Jay Bista the captain

Wasim Jaffer said he didn’t want Iqbal Abdullah but Jay Bista as the team’s captain, but other selectors suggested it to captain Abdullah (Iqbal Abdulla). He said: “ I wanted to make Jai Bista the captain, but Rizwan Shamshad and other selectors suggested that I make Iqbal the captain. He is a senior player, has played in the IPL and is also older. I accepted his suggestion.

I didn’t call the clerics in the bio-bubble

Wasim Jaffer said he did not bring a maulvis during the practice session. He said, “Maulvi came in a bio bubble and we read Namaz. I want to tell you that whatever maulvi came to Dehradun during the camp, I did not call him for two or three fines. We used to offer Namaz in the room every day, but I used to read Namaz of Zuma together, so I thought it would be nice if someone came for that. We read Namaz in the locker room five minutes after net practice. If it’s community, then I could change the practice time according to Namaz’s time, but I’m not like that.
