Despite the extensive support Team India has, there’s always a room for conspiracies and anti-nationalism. The Champions Trophy finals had a bitter ending yesterday night as India lost the finals to Pakistan at the large margin.
On regarding the notions of support, there’s always a bad side from the India-Pakistan border areas, especially, a few places in Kashmir. On one side, people in various parts of the country are disappointed with India’s loss and ironically the extreme Norths of India, Srinagar, is drowning in firecrackers and other ways of celebrations.
With many obligatory statements from separatists, the Hurriyat Leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s congratulatory tweet on Pakistan Cricket Team’s victory over Team India in the CT final has gained huge attention.
In his tweet, he said: “Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here. The better team took the day. Congratulations team #Pakistan.”

This was not the first time Farooq has taken a dig on TeamIndia. Earlier, when Pakistan Cricket Team won against England in the first semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy, he cheered for the same.
He, in his tweet, quoted: “As we were finishing Taraweeh, could hear the firecrackers bursting, well-played team #Paksitan. Best of luck for the finals!”

With this very objectional tweet, many political leaders asked the media and the people to ignore the comments made by `anti-national elements like him.` But, Indian left-hand batsman, Gautam Gambhir is not among them, this aggressive hitman took on to his Twitter handle asking him to pack his bags and move to Pakistan after the latter hailed Pakistan’s win over India in ICC Champions Trophy final.
