Read it here
Indian Flag: Reduced to pieces in Jamaica - Headlinesindia.com


He and his colleagues have already CUT and F....D the pride of so many Indians so whats a big deal in this.
Sorry state of affairs as far as sport fraternity of India is concerned and dont think anything will improve either.

Our politicians, sportsmen have all sold themselves at the cost of their motherland.

It would be a good thing if he is kicked out of the team. I thought that there were laws that you could be arrested if you insult the national symbols. What happened to them? Will they be enforced in this case?

Sachin could always say that he was about to cut it but never really went on to do it unless there are other snaps that show him actually cutting it.

Similarly a patriotic individual in my sense could occasionally fail to respect the flag through oversight-- it could be nothing worse than an honest mistake.
Excellent point. As long as someone is not willingly doing an irresponsible provocative act, I would be alright with it. Half of the women politicians wear sarees with the Indian tricolor border, but that does not make them patriots.

Walk into a cricket stadium after a criket match, and you just cannot avoid walking on the flags, does that mean, all the people in the stadium are disrespectful of the flag and the country? I think the country should stick to kicking Sachin's *** for not performing in cricket, and leave him alone with what he does after.
