Kashmiri Students in India Face Sedition Charges For Cheering on Pakistan's Victory Against India In The Asia Cup Match

A group of Kashmiri students in India is facing charges of sedition for cheering for Pakistan in a cricket match between Pakistan and India in a cricket match. 

The students were studying in a university in the Uttar Pradesh state were suspended from the college after cheering for Pakistan in the Asia Cup match where India was defeated by Pakistan.

The incident happened on the Swami Vivekanand Subharti University in the Meerut City on Sunday when the group of Kashmiri students celebrated Pakistan's victory, which lead to arguments with the other students and the university's administration ordered an inquiry and suspended the students. Some of the Kashmiri students deny any wrong-doing in their statements when talking to the media.

The sedition charges carry a three-year prison term. Jammu Kashmir's Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has stated that the charges against the students are "unacceptably harsh" and he believes that "what the students did was wrong and misguided but they certainly didn't deserve to have charges of sedition slapped against them". He also added that the punishment would "ruin their futures and will further alienate them".

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has stated that he would talk to the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and "intervene on behalf of the misguided students".

Pakistan is India's arch-rival and the matches between India and Pakistan are dramatic and intense, followed with a craze by both Pakistan and India. Kashmir has been an unsolved issue for over 60 years, with both Pakistan and India claiming it as their own, while many of the Kashmiri individuals want to be a part of Pakistan, while the rest want to be a part of neither and want to be a country of it's own.

Facebook's News Feed To Be Updated

Facebook has just announced that the News Feed will be getting a new update, with a comparison picture between the current News Feed and the updated one(picture above).

Facebook has stated that:
You may recall that last year we experimented with a complete redesign of News Feed for desktop and mobile. People who tested it told us that they liked the bigger photos and images, but found it more difficult to navigate Facebook overall. The updated design has the best of both worlds: it keeps the layout and navigation people liked, but offers bigger images and photos, as well as a new font. The current design on mobile remains the same. 

They've also stated that the changes are simply visual and wont affect stories and the interface except for the stories and ads being the same, and larger than now in size.

The updated News Feed will be available in the "coming weeks".
