South Asian tennis pair rally for peace at US Open
"It is the beauty of sport that it's above culture, politics and religion," says Qureshi, who is from Lahore. "So by pairing together through our tennis we are trying to give a message of peace to people of India and Pakistan.
'Stop War, Start Tennis' is the message from two players in Friday's men's doubles final at the US Open.
Rohan Bopanna of India and his partner Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan say if they can be friends, so can their countries.
Seeded 16th, the so-called "Indo-Pak Express" are up against favourites Bob and Mike Bryan of the US.
The success of the South Asians has been making headlines at home - Qureshi also made it to the mixed doubles final on Thursday, but lost.
For Pakistanis, his exploits in New York are rare good news after devastating floods, a recent cricket corruption scandal and years of militant insurgency.
