    NEW DELHI: Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Friday demanded a ban on IPL, alleging that the "civilised game" of cricket has been degenerated into a "vulgar" display of money and immorality leading to national security threat.

    In a statement, Swamy said the ban could be lifted after barring from the management or ownership of teams all persons actively involved in the cinema world or who hold an elected office in politics.

    "I demand that the government ban the IPL tournament forthwith since game's collateral consequences are a degeneration of a civilised game of cricket into a vulgar display of money, immorality, all converting into a serious national security threat," he said.

    His comments came against the backdrop of actor and Kolkata Knight Riders' owner Shahrukh Khan's tiff with ground staff at Wankhade stadium and the arrest of an Australian player for allegedly molesting an American woman at a five- star hotel here.

    "The recent incident of vulgar, unruly, rowdy behaviour of some of the players, owners and politicians make it necessary to impose this ban for a brief period," he said.

    IPL has no soul. Its just a copy version of european football league to pocket some easy money.

    At this rate, Sharad Pawar will give competition to Bill Gates !

    By the way why is Lalu asking for IPL to be banned. His son is gainfully employed by DD, for the last 5 years without a single appearance on the pitch.

    He should be rooting for IPL.

    Oh boy,, what have the Indians turned into.

    Ban IPL? I mean seriously? Even if there is betting involved, I dont think we should ban it. Geniuses thinking it should be banned should make a special implant in their brains so that they turn away from watching IPL matches, or simply, they cant just shut the F up and not watch IPL:frusty:

    I consider it as asset among our several soft powers.

    Anyway, when the govt cant ban Smoking, Alcohol and shit, I think asking for ban of IPL is too much.

    These people need to straighten their priorities.:rolleyes:

    IPL has all the gloom around it only because few money lords are pushing large chunks of their black money to eventually turn it white.

    Yeah continue IPL and Congress/NCP will have no worry in funding their next election campaigns.

    SO the Problem is not IPL but the way it is run and the corruption done in it by the Congress and its goons. I have a better solution, why not "not vote" for these congress goons next time?:rolleyes:

    C'mon dude. This huge population does need some entertainment in the form of cricket and B grade movies. Shahruk's and the player's incident can happen in any sport, in any country.

    I don't watch IPL though.

    SRK's incidence is not the reason I am calling to ban IPL.

    This drama should be suspended if not banned till a high level committee investigates all transactions & dealings happening under IPL banner. I am sure DLF will go down if their IPL related dealings are scanned by enforcement directorate.

    What makes everyone think that IPL is helping convert Blackmoney to White money, actually it is generating black money. Take this instance:

    A person tries to buy tickets for an IPL match however he finds out that the tickets have sold out, which in reality the tickets have been sold to the middlemen at a premium, the middlemen that adds his margin and sells it to the actual buyer, so you see more black money created.

    Instead the government should increase tax levied on the sale of tickets, that way we can cash on the cricket frenzy.

    Might be. But yeah, wherever Sharadji's touch is visible should be investigated. He's too powerful though, as well as a coalition partner.
