Suspected Shiv Sena activists on Thursday caused damage to a portion of one of the pitches at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Chandigarh ahead of a Indo-Pak Test match scheduled to be played next month.

The Shiv Sena is opposed to Pakistan's tour of India.

When Sena spokesman Subhash Desai was contacted in Mumbai, he denied any knowledge of the incident. "We don't have any information at this point of time. We are trying to collect information," he said.

Hindu Fundamentalists Try To Damage Pakistan Test

MOHALI, India (AFP) - Suspected members of the Hindu hardline Shiv Sena movement Thursday unsuccessfully tried to damage the pitch at a proposed Test venue for Pakistan's upcoming tour of India, an Indian cricket official said.

"A handful of men tried to enter the Mohali stadium but were overpowered by our security personnel," Punjab Cricket Association chief Inderjit Bindra said.

Mohali, in the northern state of Punjab, is scheduled to host the first Test during Pakistan's tour starting February 25.

"We have adequate security staff but are taking all precautions and police has beefed up security around the stadium," said Bindra, a former Indian board chief.

"This venue has never been known for rowdy crowds and we are expecting a number of people from Pakistan to come for the Test here," said Bindra. "It is a publicity stunt and there are no security worries," he added.

The vandals had alerted the local media about their proposed attack on the stadium.

"They sent a fax message to a news agency saying they would damage the pitch at the stadium. The police was alerted and six persons were arrested," said Rakesh Aggarwal, superintendent of police.

Pakistan last made a full tour of India in 1999 despite threats from the Shiv Sena, who dug up the pitch at New Delhi's Ferozeshah Kotla ground just before the tour.

Pakistan are scheduled to tour India for three Tests and five one-dayers

Miandad has terrorised the umpires world over with his acts.

It is only fair that an anti-terror organization is opposing his entry in India. :bravo:

February 11, 2005, 01:27 PM
Boy... now they need a anti-anti-terror organization to terminate anti-terror organization. Things are getting confusing...:-/

Really is a shame.....Specially when u consider the wonderful welcome they got from Pakistan last year...Well thats how it goes...u can't change ppl....

I just wonder about the mindset of ALL fundamentalists all over the world. They live for the hatred not realizing that their main enemy are they themselves. I just hope that the series will go on and we'll have some great cricket.

Unfortunately, there will be no end to fundamentalism in the world and we'll all be witness to such lunacy for the rest of our lives.

February 15, 2005, 06:00 AM
Yup, they're not exactly an ingenious bunch are they? It's either sabotage or bombs.

February 15, 2005, 06:19 AM
Yeah, generalizations are very easy to make. People are not naturally fundamentalists. They are taught to become fundamentalists.

February 15, 2005, 06:23 AM
I think some people are inherently more susceptible to brainwashing than others.

But that is beside the point. ALL fundamentalists have a one track mind - destruction of anything that does not conform to their ideology.

Thackeray opposed to cricket series against Pak (http://www.htcricket.com/htcricket/14_1244686.htm)

Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray on Wednesday expressed his opposition to the forthcoming cricket series between India and Pakistan.

"I still maintain my old stand that we should not invite Pakistan here and play cricket with them," he told reporters.

He said all those who wanted to play (against Pakistan) were "shameless".

The Pakistan team, which will be playing in India after a gap of six years, is scheduled to arrive in the country on February 25 to play three Test matches and five One-Day Internationals.

Shiv Sena has openly opposed the tour arguing that Indian soldiers were being killed on the border while fighting with Pakistan and hence the country should not maintain ties with the neighbouring nation.

Sena activists had recently caused minor damage to the pitch at Mohali which is scheduled to host one of the three Tests
