The incident arose when Harbhajan reposted a video of Akmal on a panel for ARY News, a Pakistani news outlet. In the footage, Akmal made a controversial remark about Arshdeep's religion, stating, "Anything can happen. The last over will be bowled by Arshdeep Singh; he hasn't been in a great rhythm. And it's already 12 o'clock," while laughing with other panelists. 

These comments were made during the 19th over of Pakistan's innings at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

Harbhajan Singh reacted strongly to Akmal's remarks and expressed his displeasure on social media. "Shame on you, Kamran Akmal. Learn the history of Sikhs before making such comments. Sikhs have a proud history of protecting others. Show some respect," Harbhajan wrote.
