When Parvez Rasool disgraced India’s National Anthem

For people who don’t know about Parvez Rasool, here you go. Parvez Rasool is an Indian cricketer who plays as an all-rounder and thankfully he got a wonderful opportunity to leave a strong statement in big stages. Parvez Rasool did satisfy the Indian selectors by picking up a wicket during England’s seven-wicket at the popular Kanpur’s Green Stadium.

But, before the start of the match when the National Anthem was played, Parvez Rasool got caught in the camera chewing the gum which is considered as a disgrace to the Indian country. With pride, every Indian supporter should sing the National Anthem for being an Indian. Cricket professionals should lead by example as an epitome of class and respect as the Indian fans take inspiration from the fellow professionals.

A cricket match commencing with a popular National Anthem defines the massive support for one’s country who features the nation with lots of pride and commitment involved.

During a rendition of the national anthem, one is expected to stand in an upright manner and come to ‘attention’. Section 3 of the Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act, 1971 states that whoever intentionally prevents the singing of the Indian National Anthem or causes disturbance to any assembly engaged in such singing shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both.
