Parvez Rasool the kashmiri off spinner who is playing after two and a half year for team India. Carrying tons of hope on his shoulder from Kashmir and its youth, Rasool represents not only a State but an Identity, Kashmiri Indentity. But What happened on 26 January was not what one might have hoped of. See the Video below here where Parvez Rasool is seen chewing gum while the Indian National Anthem is played. For most of the social media users it was a disrespect to National Anthem by the Kashmiri off spinner Parvez Rasool.
Seeing this Twitterati went berserk and they showed their anger by tweeting against Rasool for disrespecting National Anthem and standing at ease while National anthem was played.
The incident took place when India was playing against England for the First T20 of the 3 match series on Thursday 26 January 2016. As Tradition the Indian National Anthem was played during which all the players are supposed to stand in respect for the Anthem as per the ritual. But Parvez Rasool was seen as per the spectators to be standing in Ease chewing gum which irked the people and not liked at all by them.
Rasool took one maiden wicket of Eoin Morgan but not before the England skipper had done the damage with 51 runs while giving away 32 runs. He would bat and only score five runs. Well that doesn’t seems to be an impressive performance.
People are posting Question every now and then Why Parvez Rasool is not punished? Why Parvez Rasool is still in the Team Indian? When Parvez Rasool can wear Blue Jersey then why he can’t respect the National Anthem?
Well Parvez rasool has always caught the media attention for he being from the kashmir valley of course and he is the same guy for whom Omar abdullah the former Cheif Minister of Kashmir appealed to be taken into the Indian Cricket Team. This Time though the reason is not favorable for Parvez Rasool when he is under the flak for his actions during the match.
We hope that one should decide what is the boundary of nationalism and patriotism as well as what are the parameters for determining one’s patriotism.
