🔥 Should India forfeit against Pak in WC?


#1

Political Relations between India and Pakistan are at it’s Nadir today. Uri and Pulwama attacks on Indian forces have re-ignited the anger against Pak sponsored Terror among Indian citizens. A section of Indians is asking for severing all relations with the rowdy neighbor and it’s total boycott on every stage including Sports and Arts.

This leads us to the topic of scheduled clash between the two arch rivals in ICC WC. One section advocates forefeiture of the match saying Two points are not that important. The country is important, those 40 soldiers who lost their lives are far more important than a cricket match. If we let go of a World Cup final, the country should be ready for it.
and One says why loose two points?

Two points are not that important. The country is important, those 40 soldiers who lost their lives are far more important than a cricket match. If we let go of a World Cup final, the world would take notice. Lives of Jawans and Indian citizens are far more important than a game of cricket.

While Certain sections of society say that don’t mix sports with politics or arts and politics.

What do you say?

No. Politics and sports should be kept different. Also In case India wants to mix these two, India should instead use all its force and defeat Pakistan in a highly convincing manner.

But, Boycott on such stages attracts attention of global community and increases pressure on Enemy. It’s a PR tool if nothing else.


#4

Totally irrelevant if we boycott the match. We will unnecessary be losing 2 points which we could win very easily and shut the critics. World Cup comes every 4 years and if we need to win this we need to keeps emotions out from a sport.

No. I wouldn’t mix politics with sports. We should treat it as a game against a bitter rival & give our response on the pitch.
