In a recent cricket match against Pakistan, some Bangladeshis waved Pakistan's national flag in the gallery of Sher-e Bangla Cricket Stadium. The issue is being sharply criticized across the country, while some are indirectly supporting the incident. Liberation War Affairs Minister AKM Mozammel Haque has expressed his concern in this regard. He also said to take legal action.

The minister made the remarks while handing over the jerseys of the Swadhin Bangla Football Team to the Liberation War Museum authorities at the conference room of the Cabinet Division at the Secretariat on Sunday (November 21).

Responding to a question from reporters, the Liberation War Minister said, "We will definitely look into the matter. It's unfortunate if anyone does such a thing (waved Pakistani Flag). Anyone can support a team. But for a patriotic citizen to support another team on the day of a game with Bangladesh, it will definitely not seem fair to anyone."

The minister said the government would look into the matter and take legal action. I do not know whether they are citizens of Bangladesh or not. We will look into it.

At the time, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal, State Minister for Youth and Sports Zahid Ahsan Russel, Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam, Senior Secretary for Youth and Sports Mohammad Akhtar Hossain and players of Swadhin Bangla football team were present on the occasion.
