It can’t get worse for India, Two Indian students sharing Anti India slogans “Pakistan ki jai”, “Pakistan zindabad” on WhatsApp group during India VS Pakistan, WorldT20 cricket match.

Students are now coming into limelight for all wrong reasons and it’s alarming now. Even a joke on WhatsApp could land you into a jail. Two college students in Karnataka were detained for sharing Anti India slogans on WhatsApp during the India VS Pakistan cricket match last Saturday and released later on the same day.

During a chat on WhatsApp while discussing recent India VS Pakistan T20 match one of them said ‘Jai Pakistan’ which got leaked by a group member. One bad element in the group took a screenshot of that chat and shared it outside. This spread in the local area, and was also brought to the notice of the police. The police summoned the students and asked them to sign a bond. Backgrounds of the students were also verified and it was found that there was no ill intention in posting the chat. Hence, the case was closed. The police said “There was no intent of sedition as the slogan was just a comment”

Superintendent of police Sharanappa S Dhage told leading daily:

“The police summoned the students and asked them to sign a bond. Backgrounds of the students were also verified and it was found that there was no malafide intention in posting the chat. Hence, the case was closed,” on a good note.

Why are youngsters becoming pro Pakistan and sharing such slogans “Pakistan ki jai”, “Pakistan zindabad” on WhatsApp group. Was this just a joke? Keep posting your comments below.
