LUCKNOW: An IPS officer from Uttar Pradesh has criticized the Argentina Football Association’s tweet after Qatar won the World Cup. DSP Anjali Kattaria objected to the tweet expressing gratitude, in which Kerala’s name was specifically mentioned along with India, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Kataria says that Kerala is not a separate entity but a part of India. But it is not clear whether the official twitter account is official or not.
“Coming from an official sports organization in Argentina, this tweet is irresponsible, to say the least. The inclusion of Kerala as a separate entity, that too among a triad of nations bloodily carved out of British-ruled India, must be read as something that respects any Indian. ,” tweeted Anjali Kattaria.

inserting #Kerala as a separate entity, that too among a trio of nations that bloodily emerged from British-ruled India, is a must-read for any self-respecting Indian.
