India’s defeat against Australia in the Cricket World Cup final has sparked an unusual perspective from former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju. Justice Katju has proposed a rather unconventional theory in a post on X (formerly Twitter), attributing Australia’s victory to its purported historical connection as the storage center of the Pandavas’ ‘Astras,’ known as ‘Astralaya.’
Justice Katju’s claim lacks any supporting evidence or context. Despite its wobbly base, the claim has garnered attention and amusement across social media platforms.
Justice Katju’s Unconventional Theory
In his social media post, Justice Katju boldly stated, “Australia was the storage centre of the ‘Astras’ of Pandavas. It was called ‘Astralaya.’ This is the real reason why they won the World Cup.“
His assertion left netizens intrigued, bemused, and somewhat skeptical due to the absence of substantial validation for this extraordinary assertion. Known for his outspoken nature and unconventional views, Justice Katju’s unverified claim added an intriguing layer to discussions surrounding the World Cup outcome.
Humorous Reactions On Social Media
The lack of substantiation for this unique theory led social media users to respond with a mix of amusement and skepticism.
One user quipped, “Thank u sir… It’s been a while since u honoured us with your humour.” While Justice Katju’s unorthodox perspectives often ignite conversations, this particular claim without factual grounding has left the internet both fascinated and incredulous.
Among the responses to Justice Katju’s theory, another social media user remarked, “Dubai was made by Mr. Dubey, Egypt (Misr in Hindi) by Mr Mishra, Israel was created by Yadavs, Bahrain by Lord Brahma, and Saudi Arabia by Goddess Saraswati.”
These comments, while humorous, reflect the skepticism and amusement prevailing within online discussions about Justice Katju’s unusual post.
Justice Katju, the former chairman of the Press Council of India, has a history of expressing unorthodox opinions. Even after retiring as a Supreme Court Judge in September 2011, he remains a prominent figure known for his outspoken and unconventional viewpoints.
World Cup Loss
India’s defeat in the World Cup final against Australia marks their second loss within five months, following the World Test Championship decider earlier in June.
Despite past victories in the one-day World Cup in 1983 and 2011, India’s recent setback has triggered widespread discussions and reflections on the team’s performance and future prospects.
While Justice Katju’s unusual theory regarding Australia’s victory in the Cricket World Cup lacks substantiation, it has undoubtedly ignited curiosity and amusement among social media users.
As discussions continue regarding India’s recent cricket defeats and Justice Katju’s unorthodox perspective, the broader focus remains on the team’s performance and the future trajectory of Indian cricket on the global stage.
