Security forces are said to be concerned😨 after militant sympathisers in Kashmir Valley named cricket teams participating in certain tournaments after militants💀. A cricket tournament🏏 was recently played in South Kashmir's Pulwama district which had few participating teams like Aabid Khan Qalandars, Khalid Aryans and Burhan Lions😱. While Burhan is one of the most wanted commanders of Hizbul Mujahideen😳, Khalid was his brother who was killed by the security forces in an operation😑.
"If this practice is not nipped in the bud, it can create a huge problem in coming months and years. The psyche of the impressionable minds is sought to be influenced," a security official👮 said. The concern stems from the fact that many members from a football club⚽ started under the name of a Kashmiri terrorist who was hanged in 1984, joined the extremists when militancy erupted in the valley😯.
