Claim:  Sachin Tendulkar’s statement about Prophet Muhammed

Fact:  Legendary Indian Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has never made a statement about Prophet Muhammed in any of his press meets or on his official social media handles. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On searching for any such statement by Sachin Tendulkar about Prophet Muhammed, we could not find any such statement being made by him in any press conference or an interview. We also searched his official social media handles with the keywords ‘Prophet Muhammed’ and couldn’t find any post praising Prophet Muhammed on his Twitter and Facebook handles. Secondly, there is no report by any media house about his alleged statement. All this proves that he never made such a statement and it is fictional.

To sum it up, Sachin Tendulkar never made a statement on Prophet Muhammed.
