The Pakistani players wrecked a well-deserved victory with their lewd, rude gestures and abuses at thousands of stunned fans at the Kalinga Stadium on Saturday, as they celebrated with their shirts off. Two Pakistan hockey players banned, another warned for obscene gestures after game against India
Sportspersons and fans have a symbiotic relationship. Both sides gain a lot from the other, and therefore both sides must respect each other.
What the Pakistani hockey players did after their win against India goes against the spirit of the game and sets a bad example of celebrity behavior towards the fans. A crowd will sometimes cheer the players and at other times jeer the players. Every crowd has its favorite team. That does not mean that the crowd can be insulted.
With your help today, India can
nurture future sportspersons.
Petition the HRD Ministry to make
sports a compulsory subject in
schools. Sports is education too.
