Four Kashmiris arrested for respecting Pakistani anthem

  • Pakistan’s national anthem played before start of a cricket match

SRINAGAR: Four Kashmiri cricketers were arrested on Sunday in Bandipora district of Indian-held Jammu Kashmir for lining up as Pakistan’s national anthem was played before the start of a cricket match, the Indo-Asian News Service reported.

After a video went viral showing the players’ conduct in Arin village before the start of the match, police arrested the four. The local police said that they were looking for the organisers of the match who arranged the shooting of the video.

In 2016 too, a video went viral showing local cricketers line up to salute Pakistan’s national anthem before the start of a match in Ganderbal district. The police had arrested some of the boys then but they were let off after assurances from the parents.
