Where was, on the other hand, the BSF (Border Security Force) was enraged at this move intending to lodge a complaint against Hasan Ali for disrespecting the flag and affecting the sanity of the parade. As no public interference is allowed in between the flag lowering ceremonies but the Pakistani Rangers on the other side of the border has tried to affect the sanctity of this ritual and the BSF Inspector General, Mukul Goel is intending to lodge a protest against the Rangers on Pakistan Border. Not all sportsmen are like this. There are really humble players in Pakistani team as well who showed humble gestures. Check out the events here. They are an example of true sportsmanship unlike this.
