Pakistan-born Australian cricket-star Fawad Ahmed says he wants to be a role model for the Muslim community, and represent the true essence of his faith through sport. “We are representing 1.7 billion Muslims in the world rather than those few thousand people … Whatever they are called, terrorists or whatever. I would love to represent that 1.7 billion people and to be a role model for all Muslims, and to connect with the people about how we can live together in this beautiful country,” Ahmed was quoted as saying to the Sydney Morning Herald.
