INDIAN OPENER GAUTAM GAMBHIR SUGGESTED KASHMIR SEPARATIST LEADER MIRWAIZ UMAR FAROOQ TO GO TO PAKISTAN AFTER HIS TWEETS ‘EARLY EID’ AFTER PAK WIN:

Veteran Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has suggested Kashmiri separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to pack his bags and cross the border to go to Pakistan in an apparent jibe taken on him after he congratulated the Pakistan Cricket Team on their victory over Team India in the ICC Champions Trophy final held on Sunday. Gambhir tweeted, “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.” Farooq had earlier tweeted, “Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here. Better team took the day. Congratulations team #Pakistan.”  Mirwaiz, a few days back too, had cheered for the Pakistan Cricket Team after their win over England in the first semi-final match of the ICC Champions Trophy.  The chairman of Hurriyat Forum tweeted, “As we were finishing taraweeh, could hear the fire crackers bursting, well played team #Paksitan. Best of luck for the finals!”  This tweet of his earned the ire of many, including political leaders, who asked the media and the people to ignore the comments made by ‘anti-national elements like him.’  Meanwhile, fans of the Indian Cricket Team have not been pleased with India’s defeat and the locals in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur and Uttarkhand’s Haridwar broke their TV sets and protested after Pakistan’s win.  The rediff.com : 19th.
