Hardik Patel has announced his intention to disrupt the Rajkot ODI, and block both the Indian and South African players from entering the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) stadium as a means of continuing his protests for the entire Patidar community.

The 22-year-old Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti chief has since been detained by police, but not before his remarks resulted in a ban on mobile services in the area, and 2,500 police personnel deployed at the venue.

Is this form of protest fair and justified? Vote now and let us know your opinion.
