The Palestinian flag was seen at the Eden Gardens during the World Cup. The Pakistan-Bangladesh Cricket World Cup match was a frenzy. Another controversy arose during that match. The fire of Israel-Hamas war came to the paradise of cricket.
During the World Cup four spectators were accused of showing Palestinian flag and chanting slogans in the stadium. The police arrested the four people in this incident. It is known that the flag of Palestine can be seen in their hands at the entrance gate to Eden. According to police sources, during the Bangladesh vs Pakistan match, four fans kept showing the Palestinian flag several times. At first the policemen did not understand it. After realizing that, Maidan police arrested four people.
Where was the detention from?
It is known that among the four youths, two are residents of Jharkhand, one is a resident of Ekbalpur in Kolkata and the other is a resident of Howrah. Two of them have been arrested from Gate 6 of Eden. And two more people were arrested from G1 block inside the stadium. These four youths chose the Bangladesh vs Pakistan match as a protest against the war between Israel and Hamas. Israel has been at war with Hamas since October 7. Many people died in this war.
Regarding Tuesday’s incident, Police DC (South) Priyabrata Roy said, “We are trying to find out from the four people for what purpose they have committed such an incident.” Maidan police are investigating the whole matter. However, the question is how did such a controversial incident happen in Eden despite the tight security? Were the two young men not thoroughly searched when they entered the field? It is not that many spectators turned up for the Pakistan vs Bangladesh match. If this is the state of security in this match, then what will happen in the India-South Africa match on Sunday? In that match, the whole Eden will be full.
