Ahead of the forthcoming India-Pakistan Asia Cup match on August 28, the Jammu and Kashmir Student Association (JKSA) has asked students from the state studying at various colleges across the country to take the game seriously and avoid postings on social media that might land them in trouble.

India Vs Pakistan Cricket Match

India and Pakistan are poised to play a T20 cricket match on Sunday as part of the Asia Cup at Dubai International Stadium, which is likely to be a high-voltage contest. Last October, Babar Azam’s Pakistan trounced India by ten wickets, prompting the arrest of a few Kashmiri students for posting pro-Pakistan messages on social media.

Why is this advice required for the India Pakistan match?

“Beacause there are three Kashmiri students studying in Agra who were arrested for making objectionable social media posts, only one is continuing his engineering studies, and the other two have returned home with no studies in between after being released on bail from Agra District Jail on May 26, 2022,” Khuehami said

According to police sources, the students were arrested after a case was filed against them at Jagdishpura police station, initially under sections 153A (promoting enmity and doing acts prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony), 505(1)(b) (inducing to commit an offence against the state or the public tranquillity) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), as well as Section 66F (cyber terrorism) of the Information Technology (Amended) Act, 2008..

“We have asked Kashmiri students studying at various institutions throughout the country to prioritise their education and careers for which they have travelled to different parts of the country from their home state of Jammu and Kashmir,” Khuehami told HT over the phone on Saturday.

“These students must see sports as a game and avoid social media posts during and after the game, which may cause indiscipline at any institution throughout the country or land them in trouble.” They should avoid superfluous arguments, disputes, or social media chatter and instead enjoy the game with real sportsmanship,” Khuehami said.

After Agra attorneys declined to contest their case, they were represented in court by Madhuban Dutt Chaturvedi, a Mathura lawyer. The Allahabad high court granted these students bail on March 30, 2022, but the time it took to arrange sureties for them led their release from jail to be delayed.
