Pakistan has defeated Indian Cricket Team in the Final of Champions Trophy last night. It was a humiliating defeat to India as they were defeated comprehensively in the hands of the Arch-Rivals. This is all part and parcel of the game but what happened later is stunning.
Media Reports suggest that Fireworks and celebrations are seen not only in Kashmir or sensitive areas like the Old City of Hyderabad, even the areas where this kind of polarization is not seen earlier have witnessed the celebrations. Parts of Andhra Pradesh where Muslims are in majority have also witnessed such celebrations.
Almost all the states in the country have seen such incidents. This is an alarming trend which the government and intelligence should immediately concentrate upon lest the long term effects will also include compromising on the internal security of the country.
