Three Muslims were arrested in Khamaria village in Ujjain district for allegedly raising pro-Islam slogans while celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday night. The three youngsters were booked under Section 153 A (b) of IPC (acts likely to promote communal disharmony and disturb public peace) after they burst crackers in celebration and allegedly raised slogans glorifying Islam and denigrating Hinduism, Khachrod town inspector Dinesh Varma told The Indian Express.

The police said the accused raised only religious slogans, not pro-Pakistan slogans that would have attracted sedition charge. The three were produced before a court and sent to judicial custody on Tuesday

Earlier, fifteen muslim men were also arrested and charged with sedition in Madhya Pradesh’s Burhapur district for raising pro-Pakistani slogans and bursting crackers after India’s defeat in the ICC Champions Trophy final.

The fifteen are in the age group of 20 and 35. They were arrested on Monday from the village, about 25 kilometers from the district headquarters Burhanpur, which is a communally sensitive district in Madhya Pradesh.

    Such kind of behaviour defies any logic and and is totallyy unwanted. Such traitors and Pakistan lovers should be sent back to Pakistan their holy land where their fellow brothers would feed them give them shelter and love them.You can only expect such behaviour from MUSLIMS because they are decendants of Mir Zafar Gaddar-e-abrar.

            It was necessary to play communal card to deflect the attention of public from real issues like farmer's suicides and agitation against Mama shavraj. Nowadays, in india it has become fashion to turn any issue against muslim and offer religious fodder to anti muslim psychic which easily covers the misdeeds of governance.
