Default India fears security threat for cricket team for upcoming Bangladesh series

Here's a Indiatimes report

Quote:
Security threat to Indian team?
NEW DELHI, April 14: Indian government fear that the Men in Blue might face a security threat during their tour to Bangladesh as the country is currently facing a major political crisis. The Indian team is scheduled to begin its tour on May 7, 2007.

Bangladesh is currently going through a phase of political turmoil with the country under emergency rule. It is in this turbulent time that the Indian team is being asked to tour Bangladesh from the May 10 to the May 29.

According to the Times Now, intelligence reports by Indian officials in Bangladesh have expressed apprehensions over Indian cricket team's upcoming tour.

It is even believed that in a report the Research and Analysis Wing officials has pointed out to large scale emergency-like conditions prevailing in almost all the major cities of Bangladesh, where the Indian team is slated to play.

In response the home ministry is likely to send a three member team of Intelligence Bureau officials to Dhaka next week. A final decision under all probability will be taken then.

The Indian team has previously been under threats from the Lashkar while Sri Lanka toured India. Security concerns were also raised when a fan got too close to coach Greg Chappell in Cuttack. Star Indian players like Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly have been given Z category covers because of the threat perception.
And here's BCB response

Quote:
“Nothing to worry”

TIMES NOW spoke to Bangladesh Cricket CEO, Mohd-ur-Rehman who said there was nothing to worry abut the Team’s security.

“Bangladesh political crisis has nothing to do with the security of Indian players and all the security protocols will be followed when Team India will be in our county,” Rehman said adding that no intelligence agency has contacted them yet.

About the recent Bird flu scare, Rehman clarified that the flu crisis has been fully contained and that the dietary requirements issued by Indian officials for Team India will be strictly adhered to.

Really quite surprised to see the Indian response. Bangladesh is currently enjoying best law and order situation for about a decade.

IMO, Indian government is putting unnecessary pressure in the mindset of fragile "Team India".

Where did bird flu come from? Are they actually using that as an excuse? Jokers!!

actually it makes sense as the whole Indian team is too chicken to play BD, so they might actually catch the bird flu...

As for security... "state of emergency" means "actions are taken to bring bring things in order".. so it should be safer than any other time... Indian criccketers are in danger only in one place... and that's in India...

No other country really cares... they are in danger.. my foot..

Indians seem genuinely scared of playing Bangladesh. After the South Africa match the Indians figured that they are in for some difficult games ahead. If they loose a few matches in Bangladesh, how much damage does that do to their image?

Looks like this time it's the Indian intelligence officials with their concerns and not the BCCI.

BTW, is it just me or is it THE WORST TIME TO PLAY CRICKET IN BD. It's May for god sake. It's gonna be very hot and humid. What the hell were they thinking. I know the Indian team is busy all year and this is the only time they have, but still why even plan a tour in this weather. But honestly, I'm worried about the player's health (both Indian and Bangladeshi players). They'll probably need to have 5 drinks breaks for every 50 overs.

This is just an example of how some Indians like to look down upon us (Bangladesh). Political problems, bird flue, etc etc. Every country has problems. Health problems, political problems and security problems. You think Indian doesn't have them. That's like BD intelligence officials saying, oh we are worried about our players getting infected with HIV when they travel to India because of it's high share of HIV positive population. I hope that's never the case because that would be very ignorant and arrogant thing to say.

So this is just an example of how some Indians like to look down upon us and that's it.

The only thing that won't be secured for India in this tour is victory over Bangladesh.

Thanks god. I thought BCB was going to cancel this tour becasue our player needed some rest after this long wc tour.But i am happy that India came up with the reasons.Now BCB should make a official announcement to cancel the tour and give our players a long vacation.They really need it.

You quoted him saying thats how Indians look down upon us so I thought you were implying he was Indian.Moreover things did not add up because he was not bashing BD. All this confusion because you quoted him. I edited my post. Thanks

Security problem? I see. Shak Diye Mach Dhakar Opchesta Boiki. Actually loosers should admit the plain truth: Tendu Dangu Dhoni Vheeru do not have the courage to face the bouncers of Mash or Shahadat or the venomous attack of our spin trio.

Hahaha. They're scared as hell. Must be telling each other "eh sun be...waha par jaake bat se mar khana se yaha pe rehke logo ka joota khana behtar hai...dard kaam hoga".

I knew they would chicken out. I don't think they'll come. They'll make excuses and stop the tour. And spineless ICC will just watch and smile.
