AR is not the type who does what MR says, the reason he is not a minister. This, for people who know AR well, is very AR like. We all still remember the speech he made pre world cup '96,"thank you Asar, thank you Wasim" for helping SL when the others refused to come. These kind of situations, he will go out of his way to assist India or Pakistan cause they stood by us beside the diplomatic side of it, knowing BCCI is on the mat, after a while.
