Firecrackers seen bursting in few pockets of India after India got defeated by Pakistan, Sehwag and Gambhir reacts
Visuals of firecrackers being busted in a few pockets of India started to pour in as soon as the Indian Cricket Team was defeated by Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Former Indian Cricketers Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag hit out at those people for their anti-India move.
Twitter and other social media platforms were flooded with videos of people celebrating India’s defeat against cricketing rival Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. People from a few pockets across the country were seen bursting crackers after the match. This drew a huge criticism from Netzines and several social media users even demanded strictest action against these people.
Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag took to Twitter to allege firecrackers were burst in ‘parts of India’ after the team’s loss against Pakistan on Sunday. Sehwag took a dig at fans celebrating Pakistan’s victory and also aimed a swipe at those urging people to not burst crackers during Diwali but are resorting to burning crackers over a cricket match. Sehwag, taking it to Twitter wrote, “Firecrackers are banned during Diwali but yesterday in parts of India there were firecrackers to celebrate Pakistan‘s victory. Achha they must have been celebrating victory of cricket. Toh, what’s the harm in fireworks on Diwali.”
Sehwag’s tweet rapidly created a buzz among the Twitterati and a huge section of people praised him for raising the issue without mincing his words. People supported him for criticising the hypocrisy over the burning of firecrackers during Diwali while others suggested there was no need for the former cricketer to share the tweet.
Soon after India faced a defeat at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, the streets of the National Capital along with several cities witnessed a shocking turn of events, with several people bursting crackers to celebrate Pakistan’s win and India’s defeat. Despite a blanket ban of crackers, people sitting in their homes could hear the sound of crackers. Celebrations also erupted in PoK, where some people could not hold their excitement as Pakistan managed to win a cricket match against India. Slogans were also chanted stating, “Pakistan Zindabad, Pakistan Meri Jaan”. Some videos also came to light where people were seen raising Pakistani flags.
Joining his former on-field partner, Gautam Gambhir, on Monday, also criticised those bursting firecrackers after Pakistan’s win against India in the T20 World Cup match on Sunday, October 24. His remarks come after ex-cricketer Virender Sehwag alleged that crackers were burst in parts of India following Pakistan’s victory. In a tweet, using the ‘Shameful’ hashtag, Gambhir said, “Those bursting crackers on Pak winning can’t be Indian! We stand by our boys!”
As per ‘unconfirmed reports’, government has invoked it’s recent order which reads, ‘extra territorial loyalty at the cost of the Indian Union would be factored in while deciding right to opportunity in India or government funded public employment’. Identification of trouble mongers has already begun and they ‘might’ face a cancelation of their admission. The girl who was seen shouting anti-India slogans standing on a table in a video that went viral has been identified as Arifa Asfand, a MBBS student of 2017 batch. She is likely to face disqualification as per the government sources.
As of now, most of the videos trending on the social media wherein people in Kashmir were seen celebrating Pakistan’s victory are from 2017. Only two videos- SKIMS hostel and GMC girls hostel celebratory videos have been found real and verified and Police is on job to nab the offenders.
