Complaint against Tendulkar for dishonouring flag

This is what I read in the Indian news site. And I was surprised that people with such thinking and IQ exist in the world...

A complaint has been filed with the Delhi police against Sachin Tendulkar for allegedly dishonouring the tri-colour during the Indian team's stay in the West Indies last month by Subodh Jain, a social activist based in east Delhi.

And the reason?

The controversy erupted as AajTak showed a photograph of Tendulkar with a knife about to cut the cake in the presence of the Indian High Commissioner to Jamaica, K L Agrawal, at a function there. Jain has also named Team India and officials of the Indian High Commission in Jamaica where Sachin allegedly cut a cake in the colours of the national flag.

"I am disturbed that a person of Tendulkar's stature is dishonouring the tricolour. He should be a role model and by cutting a cake with tri-colour he disgraced both the nation and the national flag," Jain said.

I would not advise to read more of this article - but anyone interested - click here

I cannot believe this...heights of stupidity! The comments on this article are fun to read though...

Now the deal is I posted this so that other people can see how NOT to make use of their free time. Oh man, there are so many things to deal to improve the world and make it a better society than lodging such moronic complaints.

Dude, Subodh Jain if you manage to bump into this blog - do get a life man and seriously if you are so passionate about stopping people to dishonour India, I would advise you to keep your mouth zipped up for the rest of your life to further dishonour India!

Hi Amit

I appreciate your perspective and am in complete agreement with you. But instead of lashing out at the reporter, I think it is important to know that if what Tendulkar did is actually true; then it is punishable under the Indian constitution.

Indian constitution is meant to represent the collective psyche of the Indian population. Instead of asking the blogger to shut up, please suggest a way forward to what the flag decorum for Indian flag should be.

This is ofcourse a tough issue even today for countries ranging from USA, Germany to Singapore.

What the reported did is actually good to instigate a debate, which most indians think does not exist.

Hi anonymous,

Thanks for sharing your point of view. I do not however agree that by cutting a cake someone dishonours a flag - rules, consitutions, compendiums are fine as long as those makes sense in a CONTEXT. I do not see these rules as being independent and using it to apply whenever and wherever.

I do not see or believe that they or for matter Tendulkar said - ok we want to dishonour the flag so lets make a cake out of Indian tricolors and we will want to cut it so to dishonour a flag.
