Jammu and Kashmir: Four held for playing Pak anthem during cricket match

Before the match commenced, the national anthem of Pakistan was played on a loudspeaker with players of both teams standing in attention.

In the 1.45-minute clip, the Pakistani national anthem plays after both the teams - one in green jerseys similar to the ones the Pakistani cricket team dons and the other in whites - line up on the ground, The Indian Express reported. The uproar began when Bandipora legislator Usman Majeed urged the J&K government to "pardon" the young cricketers, who were arrested two days ago for playing the neighbouring country's national anthem before the start of a cricket match in Bandipora.

"There were some mischievous elements who created this problem, it is a far flung area and I think people were made to do this under pressure, police is now after the cricketers and this has also come in the media, but I don't think cricketers had any bad intentions", said Mr Majeed.

The video which was shared on January 3 has taken the internet by storm, following which the local police started investigating the case.
