Game Time: Should sportspersons take political stands?

With Irfan Pathan tweeting in support of Jamia Millia University students, the issue of whether celebrities should talk about current issues and take a political stand is back. When American football quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem in 2016, he received tremendous backlash that hurt his sports career. Mihir Vasavda and Nihal Koshie unpack whether in an atmosphere like this, we expect our sportspersons to stand up for a cause or whether it is unfair to expect activism from athletes. Tune in to find out.
