Republic TV on Sunday exposed the Pro-Pakistan organisations who finance anti-India events in a desperate attempt to try to tarnish the image of the country.
An aircraft carrying anti-India message was seen flying over the stadium in the UK during India-Sri Lanka cricket match. Cricket fans were stunned to the see the political stunt and were equally shocked as it was a matter of safety breach too.
Minutes after the scene in the air, the UK police came to action but could not come up with a clear answer as to who was behind the air show. Clearly, they did not expect that coming from the sky.
Before anyone could provide any answers, Republic TV tracked down the arrangers of an airplane carrying the anti-India message. An Organisation called Tehreek E Kashmir was involved in the funding of the entire drama during the match. In a phone conversation between our correspondent and Fahim Kayani, member of TEK, it is revealed that the people behind anti-India slogan show their allegiance towards Pakistan.
Another shocking claim by the member of the group is that “all the Kashmiris living in the UK are pro-Pakistan people”. Mr. Kayani goes on to claim that there are multiple organisations who organise and support these events.
It is obvious that arranging a helicopter is an expensive affair. The question is what is the source of money behind all these events? In a shocking revelation Kayani claims to have the support of many 'business people' who are ready to pay any amount for these ant-India stunts.
He says “I have a businessman sitting next to me right now. He can provide any amount of money I need....we spent thousands of pounds on this”.
Anti-India stunts are not new to the UK but this time there is a clear proof of their funding. In the past too, there have been many processions against India in London where hatred against our country has been conspicuous but the organizers have rejected to have any connections with Pakistan. This is the first time Republic TV exposes those who chant slogans against India and glorify terrorists.
The incident has prompted the BCCI to file a written complaint with the International Cricket Council.
In an official statement about the provocative move, ICC said, “We are incredibly disappointed this has happened again. We do not condone any sort of political messages at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. Throughout the tournament, we have worked with local police forces around the country to prevent this type of protest occurring. After the previous incident, we were assured by West Yorkshire Police, there would not be a repeat of this issue, so we are very dissatisfied it has happened again.”
