New Delhi: Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh raised a question on 'country's communal conflicts' and expressed his views on 'India not being able to make it to the World Cup'. Taking a cue from the FIFA World Cup 2018 final clash between Croatia and France, the cricketer took to Twitter and highlighted that the issue of 'conflicts between members of Hindu and Muslim communities in the country'. He posed the question that despite having a population of 135 crores India is not competing at the World Cup while Croatia, a country with a mere 50 lakh population stand on the cusp of glory.

Using a hashtag ‘soch badlo desh badlega (change your thinking, the country will change)’, he tried to drive across the point. Singh's tweet came ahead of the FIFA final in which he wrote that Croatia, a country of roughly fifty lakh will play the FIFA World Cup final and we a country of 135 crore are playing Hindu and Muslim among us. He encouraged his fans and masses to 'change the thinking' following which 'the country will also change'. Here's what he wrote on the microblogging site:



Not just Singh, but Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas also expressed his view stating a similar statement. Here's what he wrote on Twitter.




Notably, Croatia was playing in its first World Cup final. For France, it was a first World Cup crown since winning on home soil in 1998. France scored twice in each half as they thumped a combative Croatia 4-2 in a dramatic final to win the FIFA World Cup for the second time in 20 years on Sunday.
