This is my first attempt to write on Opindia. And that too because I thought someone might, but no one did. It’s weekend, and what could be a better way to enjoy weekend than an India vs Pakistan cricket match. Lots of cheering, emotions and drama. Aren’t you excited enough to cut this night out of system to begin match?
Well I am not, and trust me no one from families of martyrs or no one from families of people who suffered terrorists Jihad are. I know, cricket is entertainment and sport, but can entertainment go hand in hand with terrorists? Our players shaking hands with Pakistanis while same nation is celebrating brutal killing of our soldiers? I remember how twitter came together at time of release of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” but then cricket is different. Is it in real? Today, when India plays against Pakistan, all I can think about is how easy it is for most of us to forget our Army. Yes, most of you did.
This is just not about cricket. And sportsmen spirit is for players, not terrorists.
