Yogi to press sedition charge on people who cheered cricket team of Pakistan

The Uttar Pradesh chief minister's remarks come a day after three engineering students from Kashmir were arrested in Agra for the said act

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that sedition law would be invoked against those celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India in the T20 World Cup match on 24 October.

Yogi Adityanath made the remarks in an interview with a news medium. The link to that interview was posted by the official Twitter handle of the chief minister’s office.

Yogi Adityanath’s remarks come a day after three engineering students from Kashmir were arrested in Agra for raising anti-national slogans after Pakistan’s victory over India in the match.

The students were suspended by the college administration after a police complaint was filed against them by local BJP leaders.

The students have been booked under IPC Section 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups), 505 (1)(B) (with intent to cause, or which is likely to cause, fear or alarm to the public) and Section 66 F of the Information Technology Act, the police said.

The faculty members of the college said several members of right-wing Hindu outfits had allegedly barged into the campus and staged a protest against the students.

Several videos were posted on social showing students raising objectionable slogans and celebrating Pakistan’s victory.

Uttar Pradesh Police said seven persons had been booked in five cases in the districts of Agra, Bareily, Badaun and Sitapur after Sunday’s match.

India lost its ICC T20 world cup opener against Pakistan by 10 wickets on Sunday. It was Pakistan’s first win over India in a World Cup match on their 13th attempt.

Similar cases have been registered in Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir. A teacher in Rajasthan was arrested for putting a status on WhatsApp celebrating Pakistan’s victory.

Jammu and Kashmir Police registered two cases under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) against some medical students living in hostels at the Government Medical College in Karan Nagar in Srinagar and SKIMS Soura.

A scuffle had broken out between a group of Kashmiri students and those from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar at an engineering institute in Punjab’s Sangrur district after the match.

Sangh parivar collected more than Rs 3,000 crores from Hindus as per media reports & gave that amount to a Sarkari Trust & a Sarkari Construction Committee to construct Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir.

Had Central or State Govt sanctioned Govt funds then they would have deserved credit.
