India's fast bowler Mohammed Shami, who is currently vying the allegations leveled against him by his wife Hasin Jahan, on Sunday told India TV in an exclusive interview that he wants to forget past conflicts and lead a peaceful life with his wife and daughter.
"I want to forget past conflicts, sort things out and lead a peaceful life with my family. I want to see my family happy again. My daughter's life is ahead of her and I don't want her to feel isolated by this matter. I want only happiness for her," Shami said.
The 28-year-old bowler from Amroha was charged under various non-bailable and bailable sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), following a complaint filed by his wife on Friday.
Shami brushed off all the allegations, claiming that he tried to reach Hasin a few times to sort the matter out at home rather than taking it out in the public.
“I tried to talk to Hasin many times. I never intended to hurt her. All the allegations are false and baseless. There have been many accusations which are increasing day-by-day. I don't want to give an explanation about it and I want it to be investigated thoroughly," he said.
"These allegations have affected my game as well. The changes that arose is quite shocking. Just a few days ago she said in an interview with India TV that she missed me and we were quite happy," the speedster added.
Amidst the controversy, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has put Shami's annual contract on hold until he gets a clean chit in the case. Shami said that he has complete faith in the BCCI.
"I Have full faith on BCCI, whatever decision they take will be after much deliberation and investigation. I have no tension regarding that," Shami said.
Even though his wife has lodged an FIR against him, Shami believes she could have thought about their daughter, who has a complete life ahead of her.
"All the matter should be solved at home instead of taking it out to the public. It's embarrassing and humiliating. A small issue has been made big and all the misunderstandings have created differences between us. For my family, I would do anything, it is my first priority.
"Even though she has lodged an FIR, she could have thought of our child and family first. Nothing is bigger than our child and family. I'm ready to put aside the differences and if she is ready to talk to me."
The Team India pacer feels that it is all a conspiracy against him and will do everything he can to find the person responsible for this.
"Whoever is behind this, I will find out soon and the day I do that, I will expose him."
On being asked if Shami had any message for his wife Hasin, the bowler said, "The differences made and created between us can be sorted out. Whatever has happened has happened, let's put it aside and think of the future of the family."
