No play with Pakistan: We Indians must choose between national pride and our martyrs' sacrifice versus a game of cricket

If Pakistan plays the World Cup, India withdraws. We owe this to our own sense of nationhood and our brave-hearts. If we unite in this spirit, our win will be much bigger than any World Cup.

How a 'caste census' of Pulwama martyrs utterly disparages their sacrifice
