Indian police have arrested seven Muslim youths for allegedly celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India in a cricket match on Sunday.

Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, a senior Bharatiya Janata party figure, said in a tweet that the three may be charged with sedition, on top of the charges of cyberterrorism and “promoting enmity among groups” that police accused them of after the arrests on Wednesday.

Another leading BJP politician, federal cabinet minister Sidharth Nath Singh, told NDTV news channel that Uttar Pradesh police would take the strictest possible action against anyone for exulting in India’s defeat in Sunday’s T20 World Cup cricket game in Dubai.

Three of the youths, Arsheed Yousuf, Inayat Altaf Sheikh and Showkat Ahmed Ganai, are engineering students at Raja Balwant Singh College in Agra and are from Kashmir. They are also accused of posting messages on social media supporting Pakistan. The college has suspended them.

The other three youths were arrested in Bareilly and one in Lucknow.

Jammu and Kashmir police also booked some students at two medical colleges in Srinagar for celebrating Pakistan’s win.

The issue of some Indian Muslims cheering and clapping whenever Pakistan defeats India in a cricket match has been a bone of contention for decades.

BJP supporters and Hindu nationalists attack such behaviour as disloyalty or treason.

Liberals reject this, saying Indians should be free to support whoever they wish in cricket or any other sphere of life, and accuse Hindu extremists of exaggerating accusations in an attempt to smear Muslims.

Adityanath has been pursuing a vigorously anti-Muslim campaign involving arbitrary arrests and intimidation since he came to power in the state in 2017. He has removed the Muslim names of several towns and railway stations and replaced them with Hindu names.

During the protests against the controversial Indian citizenship law in 2019, when Muslims came out on to the streets to vent their opposition, many Muslim men had their property confiscated after being given huge fines for allegedly vandalising public property that were impossible for them to pay.

Adityanath said at the time that the fines and confiscation were revenge against those who had indulged in violence in the demonstrations.

Last month, he banned the sale of meat in Mathura, a town that Hindus consider to be holy because it is the birthplace of Lord Krishna. The meat trade is a traditional Muslim occupation.

Mathura was simply the latest on an ever-growing list of towns in the state where the sale of meat is banned to “protect” Hindu sentiments.


Poverty Hunger Covid and major issues - yet the BJP are more concerned about a few kids cheering a team? Thank god for Jinnah that we have our nation!

Shows indians are immature and hate filled ugly creatures. What kind of stupid country does that? Why not use the police to arrest criminals or others. I cannot imagine something like this happening in Pakistan. I saw myself Pakistanis celebrating india in a india vs pak match, no one gives a shit, its a game. But hate filled ugly creatures seem to not understand this. This ugly nation is really obsessed with Pakistan, i have never seen such obsession. Seems like the jealousy and hatred will eat them from inside lolz.

Makes a mockery of their players taking the knee. The only Muslim player in the team gets horrific abuse and death threats - yet they wan to be on the world stage - they want to pretend about others? They need to fix their own hatred and bigotry status before pointing fingers at others inadequacies.

Hindu Extremism can go to hell for all I care.

It isn't about where should the German Nazis go when they were butchering Jews. Likewise it isn't about where Hindutva rapist and Lynching terrorist should go when they are butchering Muslims.
