Ben on...Sachin, traitor to his country

This is the stupidest story I have read about the World Cup so far. Here's the gist of it:

Complaint against Sachin for dishonouring flag

NEW DELHI, April 11: A complaint has been filed with Delhi Police against cricketer Sachin Tendulkar for allegedly dishonouring the tri-colour [India's three-coloured flag] during the Indian team's stay in the West Indies last month.

The Delhi Police is seeking legal advice whether they can proceed on a complaint for an "offence" allegedly committed outside the country.

The controversy erupted as a private news channel showed a photograph of Tendulkar with a knife about to cut a cake in the presence of Indian High Commissioner to Jamaica KL Agrawal at a function.

"I am disturbed that a person of Tendulkar's stature dishonouring the tri-colour. He should be a role model and by cutting a cake with tri-colour he disgraced both the nation and the national flag," complainant Subodh Jain said.
