10 years in jail: Isn't the punishment too harsh on Virat Kohli's staunchest fan from Pakistan?

New Delhi: Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli's staunchest fan in Pakistan Umar Draz, who is a tailor by profession, is facing up to 10 years imprisonment after being arrested for hoisting the Indian tricolour atop his home in Punjab Province.

While talking to reporters Draz spoke his heart out by saying: "I am a big fan of Virat Kohli. I support the Indian team because of Kohli. Hoisting of Indian flag on the rooftop of house only shows my love for the Indian cricketer."

After the incident, the question raises - Is supporting an Indian cricketer should be considered as crime in Pakistan?

Yes, Umar should have been aware of the fact that hoisting the Indian flag, especially in Pakistan, would put him in trouble.

Supporting a rival nation's cricketer and facing prison is deemed to be really harsh and one will hope he is let off for the incident by the Pakistan government.
