Two people were killed and several others injured by gunfire as Pakistan celebrated their ICC World Twenty20 victory.

Thousands poured onto the streets in Pakistan's towns and cities and shots were fired in celebration soon after Younus Khan's side secured an eight-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the final at Lord's.

A 10-year-old girl and a young male were accidentally killed in the shooting, the Dawn reported.

The girl was watching the celebrations from an upper floor balcony in Nazimabad when she was struck by bullets. She died immediately.

A young man was similarly injured near Safoora Chowk and was rushed to a nearby government hospital where he was declared dead.

Government hospitals in Pakistan admitted several others with gunshot wounds, the report added.

This happens in paces like Iraq also. On every good occasion, people fire, and innocents die needlessly.

Its just a cultural thing, they think shooting is a great way to celebrate; I personally consider it an ignorant backwards mentality, but thats my opinion...

yep, my thoughts are exactly on the same line: anybody familiar with the sitcom(very popular in US):the simpsons? there's this rich texan guy in there who just randomly shoots off for no apparent reason...sounds like something he would do...

The Kashmiris including men and women remained glued to their
television sets from Sunday evening to watch the final match. The roads and
streets were presenting a deserted look as the people watched with great interest
Pak team playing its crucial final match.
After Pakistan’s win, people especially youth came out on roads in Srinagar and other parts of IHK on Sunday and Monday and chanted pro-freedom and pro-Pakistan slogans.
They also burst crackers and even raised slogans in front of the Indian military, paramilitary and police bunkers.
“It is a great win for Pakistan and an occasion for us to celebrate their win,” said Pakistani fan, Muzaffar Ahmad.
“Boom Boom Afridi is his favourite player and I watch every match of Pakistan with keen interest,” said Ahmad.
Kashmiris are great fans of Pakistani cricketers and have always displayed their love for them in full public view.
A Kashmiri died while watching the semi final match between Pakistan and South Africa on Thursday last. He suffered massive cardiac arrest when a South African batsman hit a six and four in the last over in which they needed 23 runs to win.
Pakistani cricketers have always had great fan following in occupied Kashmir.

I always found it interesting how Kashmiris on the Indian side of the "line of control" passionately support Pakistan in cricket... I had 5-6 Kashmiri friends from Srinagar during my undergrad years and they all supported Pakistan and sometimes this created issues with my other Indian friends who were not too happy with that...

The grass is always greener on the other side, isn't it? My suggestion to them is to move over to Pakistan if they like that country so much.

Not only Kashmiris, I have known many Muslims in India who support Pakistan. My friend's family does. They support Pakistan when India and Pakistan clash in a match. I find that hypocritical.

I am sure Pakistanis wouldnt be happy if some Pakistanis supported Indian cricket team, would they?
For that matter, how would it feel to us if some Bangladeshis supported India or Pakistan when they played against Bangladesh?

Trust me, I am all for Kashmir self-determination, but I find it stinkingly hypocritical when the same people cursing India for killing Kashmiris mock Bengali deaths in 1971, and call us traitors to Islam and what not.......

According to UN mandate there is supposed to be a plebiscite in Kashmir for self-determination. As long as that doesn't happen it's nothing more than an "occupied territory", they are not "Indians".. if the Kashmiris whole heartedly support to join India, I am sure that will reflect in their sports aswell..

It's like blaming the Palestanians staying in Israeli territories for not supporting Israel...

It has nothing to do with being muslims as many thinks. The clear example of that is, muslims in Mumbai, West Bengal and UP are strong supporters of India. I have relatives from my mum's side in Calcutta who would do anything for India and they would not even support Bangladesh let alone Pakistan. Their passion and patriotism comes naturally as they decided to stay in India by choice not by force.

As for Bangladesh-Pakistan history, it is a completely different topic altogether. Firstly, Bangladesh was never forcefully taken into Pakistan in 1947.Troops from Lahore, Karachi were not flown in to occupy Dhaka or Chittagong.. The east bengali muslims after being marginalized for years decided to join Pakistan on their own and infact Muslim League was formed in Dhaka to begin with.. So comparing Kashmiris to Bengalis is not correct in my opinion.

But for your second point on 1971, I am completely in agreement with you. Pakistani government should be held accountable for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians. The crime perpetrated cannot or should not be forgiven.

Muslims are treated like **** in India? How come your Indian Muslim relatives so patriotic then? You don't love a country that treats you like ****?

Muslims in India are in no great condition- thats a fact I admit. But that's not because they are Muslims. Thats because they resist growth and modernization as a community. And yes, since the phase of "Islamic Terrorism"(a term I do not agree with, but it exists all the same and with good reason) started, Muslims in India have been looked at suspiciously. But much less than it is so in most other non-Muslim countries. We (other religions, mostly Hindus) in India have lived with Muslims for ages. We were the brothers in arms till not more than half a decade ago. We know in our hearts that Muslims are not necessarily bad people. I have many Muslim friends and they are indeed great people. But then when a bunch of lunatics come and kill our friends and relatives and say that it is because Islam asked them to, and when it happens again and again, the rest of the Muslims are bound to get weird looks. You call that hell? I dont think so.

Hi surfer, he was saying something like these people will stay animal like, or something like that, hard to translate from Bengali to English, some words are just unique to one language, hope you understand.

But I'm not sure if he was referring to Indians or Pakistanis, haha. You can pick whichever one you are not :)

thats bullshit, I know many indian muslims with PhD degrees with no jobs, because they are muslims.
Look I am not blaming Hindus(some I will) for the situation, I will blame the timing, hindus and muslims are fighting with each other for a very long time, todays condition is the product of what happened in the past
I am very optimistic, as the time passes by, the condition of muslims in india will improve

Off topic (or even related depends on how you take it) - did anyone see Channel 4 version of Mumbai Terror - behind the story. It was pathetic how guys in Pakistan controlling the whole operation on mobile phone on who to kill, when to kill, how to kill and once killed, how to die and how Allah is waiting for them (the murderers) at the gate of the heaven!!! Absolutely pathetic!!

Sorry for the guys who died in the WC celebration though!
