Arshdeep Singh’s Name Linked To Khalistan, Targeted For Missing The Catch In India-Pak Match!!

The Indian cricket team lost by five wickets against Pakistan in the Asia Cup Super-4 round match on Sunday (September 4). After this defeat, left-arm fast bowler Arshdeep Singh has come on the target of the people. Arshdeep missed the catch in the 18th over. Since then he is fiercely trolled on social media. Even Arshdeep’s name was linked to Khalistan. The government has sent a notice to the officials of Wikipedia.

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, while sending a notice to Wikipedia, said, “This can become a threat to Arshdeep Singh’s family. This can spoil the atmosphere of the country. After checking the IP address, it came to fore that this act was done by someone from Pakistan.” Minister of State for Electronics and Technology Rajiv Chandrashekhar tweeted, “Such misinformation and willful attempts to defame anyone is not allowed on any platform operating in India. This violates the government’s expectations of secure internet.”

Earlier in the year 2018, Arshdeep’s profile had described him as a member of the Khalistani team. That time too this act was done by a Pakistani citizen. Arshdeep was a member of the team that won the Under-19 World Cup.

Former cricketer and Rajya Sabha MP Harbhajan Singh also defended Arshdeep Singh by tweeting. So, trollers were taken aback. He said that the youth should stop criticizing Arshdeep for missing the catch. No one drops the catch intentionally. Proud of Indian players. Pakistan has played well. The bad things that are happening about the cricket team and Arsh are shameful. Arsh is gold.
