A day after Kashmiri separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq faced backlash for celebrating Pakistan’s victory in the Champions Trophy Final match against India, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas slammed ‘those who are celebrating India’s defeat’. Without taking any names, Vishwas, in a social media post, said those who were saved by the Indian armed forces during floods are now celebrating India’s defeat. “Baad mein fasne par bhartiya sena ki kripa se jeevit bache gramsingh bharat ki gend balle mein haar par patakhe fod rahe hain, Mane ghee pacha nahi shvaanon ko?” Vishwas said.


Vishwas further went on to question the loyalty of such people to their “motherland” and asked whether they wish to get buried in Pakistan after their death. “Bharat ki haar par patakhe fodne wale ye jaahil marne ke baad dafan hone pak jaenge ya yahin madar-e-vatan ki mitti mein keede failaenge? Manne puchh rahe hain?,” he asked.

Vishwas’s reaction came a day after Farooq took to Twitter to celebrate India’s loss in the crucial ICC Champions Trophy 2017 cricket final to Pakistan by 180 runs. In a post, Farooq wrote, ““Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here. Better team took the day. Congratulations team #Pakistan”. Farooq received criticism for his post with former Indian team player Gautam Gambhir asking him to leave the country. “A suggestion @MirwaizKashmir why don’t u cross the border? U will get better fireworks (Chinese?), Eid celebs there.I can help u wid packing,” Gambhir wrote on Twitter.

Farooq was also criticised for his post by J&K Deputy CM Nirmal Singh who described his post as “condemnable”. “This is the most condemnable thing. People are losing their lives here and these separatists are cheering for Pakistan over their win and enticing the youth of Kashmir. What kind of politics is this?,” Singh told news agency ANI.

The Pakistani team defeated India by 180 runs at the Oval cricket ground in England on Sunday. With the help of a century from opening batsman Fakhar Zaman, Pakistan put a total of 338 runs on the board. Indian top order stumbled to Pakistani bowling attack and the entire team got bowled out with just 158 runs on the board.

    What will you do with your own 'leader' kejriwal who stands with those shouting for Bharat ki barbadi? Don't be a hypocrite. You are not fooling anyone who loves India.

      Indian Muslims enjoys more freedom than any other communities in our country. They con't even dream in rest of the Muslim countries in the world. This the fate our country created by our netas to get votes of them. This at ude has to change and stop the vote bank politics. They have to see the national interest above than politics.

          Not surprised at KVs outrage. He is a protagonist of the RSS. If you watch his videos where he is talking about the RSSmen visiting his house and being fed, he can't seem to heap enough praise on these RACIST, INTOLERANT, HINDUTUWA Worshiping Saffron Brigade characters. And as for the people of Kashmir he is so upset with, his comment on their being buried in Pak-is-tan after they die, YES, Kumar Vishwas maybe some would prefer to be buried there after their death knowing that at least there they would have some peace after death. You DID'NT here a peep out of this man against Major Gogoi when he tied Mr. Dar to the front of the military jeep parading him around like circus and humiliated him. And now he is soooooo upset. What a HYPOCRITE.

              These statements and the news of charging some under sedition laws for cheering the Pakistan team are a proof of a medieval mindset. Similar cheers and support for the visiting Pakistan team or Indian team playing off England in England are quite acceptable by the locals. We need to grow up. Get out of the Pond Froggies! Every country celebrates loudly on their Independence Day in major US cities and all are welcome to join.

                Cricket is a British Game. Is it nationalism ? Actually even India is a British product as there was no country before the British came. The Sub continent was made up of empire, kingdoms and controlled by petty rajas. So is Kumar Vishwas talking about British Nationalism ?

RSS Chamcha.... you know nothing about this country......anything you fools don't like or understand is ant national...... in your sense the Indian Independence day celebrated in USA every ear should be banned by the Americans and everyone cheering for the Indian national anthem and the national flag should be booked for anti national activity and sedition by the American establishment.

                  It says, separatist leader. Is that not enough for us to understand their loyalty?
