You, presently, lead the cricket team of India and wear the National
Flag, Tri-colour while playing for India in different parts of the
globe. You must be well aware of the fact that this Tri-colour
represents a Secular-Democratic India and team led by you which
includes players from different religions and regions of the country,
undoubtedly, symbolize the same reality. I hope you are familiar with
the glorious heritage which the National Flag and a Secular-Democratic
polity represent. These are the products of great anti-colonial
struggle and ruthless fight against theocratic politics represented by organizations like the Muslim League, the RSS and the Hindu Mahasabha. Despite the partition of
India on the basis of religion mainly forced by Muslim League and
dastardly killing of Father of the Nation by persons affiliated to the
Hindu Mahasabha and the RSS, India chose to remain a non-theocratic
state. That is the significance of the Nation which you and your team
represent and the Flag which you display on your costumes.......
Wishing you all the best.
