Political propaganda reaches Headingley: Plane flies over stadium where India plays today with ‘Free Kashmir’ message

Earlier too, in a similar incident, a plane had flown over the stadium with a 'Free Balochistan' message during an Afghanistan-Pakistan match. 

While several people claim that politics and sports should not be mixed, but one has often seen the lines blur. Today, a plane was seen flying over Headingley stadium in Leeds where India is battling Sri Lanka in a World Cup cricket match. The plane carried the message “India stop genocide and free Kashmir”.

The message itself was that of Islamic propaganda considering the real genocide that Kashmir has seen is that of the Kashmiri Pandits in the 1990s. The constant messaging of this elusive “genocide” in Kashmir is a result of the muscular approach being taken by the Indian government to ensure the end of Pakistan sponsored terrorism in the Valley.
