On Wednesday, Rajasthan Police caught over 30 RCB fans for carrying out forced conversions of other IPL team majorly Rajasthan Royals fans. Rajasthan Police carried out a special operation after they were informed about it. In less than 18 hours, Rajasthan Police caught the accused and presented them in the court.
Jodhpur high court in its remarkable verdict sent all the accused to six months of imprisonment saying cricket in India is a religion and hence, Article 25 of the constitution applies to cricket as well. Article 25 grants Article 25 citizen of India the freedom of conscience and the right to freely profess, practice, and propagate religion.
Reportedly, among all the IPL teams, Rajasthan has the lowest fan base and losing even a few fans dents players’ confidence and ability to perform better. IPL management has requested all the IPL fans to keep the sovereignty of the country up because Mumbai Indians will lift the cup anyway.
