According to a BJP politician, Kashmiris who cheered Pakistan’s victory over India in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup should be skinned alive.
Vikram Singh Randhawa, a BJP politician from Jammu, during a public statement on Monday, stated that anyone who cheered Pakistan’s victory over India in the ICC Men’s World Cup 2021 should be skinned alive, their citizenship was taken away, and they should be charged with sedition.
“Agencies should take this matter up and those who have cheered for Pakistan should be acted against by making their degrees invalidated and their citizenship is revoked,” he said in the statement.
‘Kashmiris have Pakistani blood in their veins’
According to Randhawa, Kashmiris have Pakistani blood in their veins, so they should be thrashed and skinned alive for it.
He went on to say, “None of them was happy about Pakistan’s victory against Afghanistan. Did their mother pass away on that particular day? They are only happy because they have defeated the Kaafirs (non-Muslims).”
“They should also recite Nimaaz on WhatsApp since these Katmullas (an insulting term for Muslims) offer divorces on their phones. Why do they occupy public venues for the prayers then?” Randhawa remarked.
