6 posts in this topic

NEW DELHI — The police in northern India have filed sedition charges against 67 Kashmiri students after some of them cheered for the Pakistani cricket team during a televised match with India on Sunday night.

The charges were filed Tuesday following an official complaint against the students by Manzoor Ahmed, vice chancellor of Swami Vivekanand Subharti University in Meerut, according to M. M.

Omar Abdullah, the chief minister of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, wrote in several posts on Twitter that the sedition charges against the students were an overreaction.

DAMN STRAIGHT!

It's an important thing, the cricket. If you don't support the right team then CLEARLY you're the wrong sort of person to be allowed on the streets.

Hanging's too good for people like that.

yes this is sarcasm.
