Umran is being targeted by the online fans and by many locals of Jammu for refusing the sectarian mark, but this is only one side of the picture as in one picture Umran can be seen happily bowing in front of the hotel staff and she pleasantly puts the Tilak on his forehead.
Despite the fact that even batting coach Vikram Rathour and one of the support staff members have also refused to apply the tilak on them.
Umran is an emerging shining star of Indian cricket and he should be kept away from this dirty politics, the report said.
