India’s Stance on Cricket Matches with Pakistan

National Desk, 15th September: India’s Union Sports Minister, Anurag Thakur, has reiterated that India will not engage in bilateral cricket matches with Pakistan until Pakistan ceases cross-border terrorism. This decision was made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) long ago.

Thakur emphasized that the BCCI’s stance is clear: no cricketing ties with Pakistan until they stop engaging in attacks across the border or infiltration incidents.

These statements come amid escalating tensions following a recent terrorist encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag, where four security personnel lost their lives. Thakur called this incident “unfortunate” and pledged a strong response to the terrorists involved.

He also highlighted the Indian government’s commitment to combating terrorism and noted a decrease in terror incidents over the past nine years. Thakur contrasted the current approach with the previous government’s response to the 2008 Mumbai attacks, underscoring the Modi administration’s resolve against terrorism.
