Sedition charges against those celebrating Pakistan’s victory, says Yogi

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered the UP police to register a case of Sedition against those who were celebrating Pakistans victory over India in the T20 Cricket World Cup match that took place on October 24, informed the Chief Ministers Office on Thursday.

“Those celebrating Pakistan’s victory will face sedition charges: CM Yogi Adityanath.” The link to that interview was posted on the official Twitter handle of Adityanath’s office, with a line in Hindi talking about invoking sedition law against those celebrating Pakistan’s win.

The interview was given on the same day when three Kashmiri students were arrested in Agra for raising anti-national slogans after India-Pak match in T20 World Cup on Sunday. It was done after an FIR was registered against the students on the complaint of BJP Yuva Morcha leader Gaurav Rajawat.
