India-Pakistan Cricket Match Creates Weeks of Unrest in UK; Modi’s Moves Go Global

–This is part of a CarrZee series on globalization, an important issue when it comes to dealing with the global climate crisis.

By Mathew Carr + reports

Sept. 18-19, 2022: The unrest is on the streets of Leicester, England, where there are Hindu and Muslim communities living in the same areas.

See this section of the Guardian’s story:

Rukhsana Hussain, 42, a community leader, described hearing loud chants of “Jai Shri Ram”, which translates from Hindi to “hail Lord Ram” or “victory to Lord Ram”, from several streets away.

It is a chant that has recently become synonymous with anti-Muslim violence in India, where India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, is under increasing scrutiny for the treatment of minorities, including Muslims in the country.

Majid Freeman, 34, a community activist, filmed much of the disturbances in Belgrave Road on Saturday evening.

In one video Freeman shot circulating on Twitter, the smashing of glass bottles can be heard, and police shout at Freeman to move away.

CarrZee: Reports indicate that both Muslim and Hindu community representatives / people don’t trust the UK police to protect them.

In the Asia cup cricket match on Aug. 28, India narrowly defeated Pakistan, with two balls to spare.
