Delhi-based lawyer Vineet Jindal has reportedly received a life-threatening threat from the terrorist organization ‘Hizbul Mujahideen’ after filing a complaint against Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman, Mohammad Rizwan. In a surprising turn of events, Jindal took to his verified Twitter account to reveal that he had received a life threat from the terrorist organization ‘Hizbul Mujahideen’ via phone call. He subsequently lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police and urged the Delhi Police Special Cell and DCP North-West Delhi to take swift action.

Jindal posted on Tuesday night, “Adv. @vineetJindal19 Received life threat from Islamic terrorist organization Hizbul Mujahideen on Phone for filing a complaint against Pakistani cricket player Mod. Rizwan offering Namaz in Cricket Ground. Complaint filed with Delhi Police. Request @cp_delhi @CellDelhi @DCP_NorthWest to take action.”


In a letter addressed to ICC Chairman Greg Barclay, Jindal argued that Rizwan’s act of offering Namaz in the middle of a cricket match was an “intentional depiction of his religion” and went against the spirit of the game. He shared the letter on Twitter, tagging the BCCI, Pakistan Cricket Board, and the ICC.
