Has Cricket Become a Tool to Spread Hate?

India's defeat in a cricket match against Pakistan was followed by disgusting trolling of a player, Arshdeep Singh, from a minority background.

Yet again, India's defeat in a cricket match against Pakistan was followed by disgusting trolling of a player from a minority background. Last year, Mohammed Shami was called a traitor after a similar loss during the T20 World Cup. This time, Arshdeep Singh had to endure this as he was called Khalistani after India's defeat to Pakistan in the Asia cup. If successful bowlers like Shami and Arshdeep are traitors and terrorists, then who is a patriot? The hateful Hindutva trolls? We discuss the issue in this NewsClick video.
