Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij today (October 26) alleged that the DNA of those who burst firecrackers in the country if Pakistan wins a cricket match against India cannot be Indian. The Health Minister also said that one needs to be careful of “traitors” hiding in one’s own country.
Taking to official Twitter handle Anil Vij wrote in Hindi: “The DNA of those who burst firecrackers in India on Pakistan winning a cricket match cannot be Indian. Be careful of the traitors hiding in our own house.”
Anil Vij’s comments come amid media reports of anger against Kashmiris for celebrating the neighbouring country's victory. He appeared to be responding to a tweet by PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, who questioned the anger directed towards Kashmiris for celebrating Pakistan's win. "Why such anger against Kashmiris for celebrating Pakistan’s win? Some are even chanting murderous slogans- desh ke gadaaron ko goli maaro/calling to shoot traitors. One has not forgotten how many celebrated by distributing sweets when Jammu and Kashmir was dismembered & stripped of special status," she had tweeted.
