After Shikhar Dhawan who supported HRD's direction to have every central university hoist the national flag to instill pride and nationalism, Indian cricket ODI captain, MS Dhoni took to twitter to air his views on the ongoing 'anti-national' debate which has been the most hotly debated topic since the last 10 days on national media.
Dhoni expressed gratitude towards the armed forces and thanked them for guarding the borders, so that it's possible for the citizens of India to debate on this topic.

Twitter was sharply divided over Dhoni's statements. While some praised his views and extended their support, some adviced him to stick to cricket.
MS Dhoni should concentrate on cricket instead of speaking on 2 Rs politics. World Cup Surpe hai aur inko masti suj rahi hai Narayan Narayan— KaamaaI Khan (@kaamaalrkhanKRK) February 21, 2016
If greats merely tweet abt their respect for India, anti-national sentiment dies natural dealth. MS Dhoni proved it. pic.twitter.com/RpdZkNVyRT— Nikhil Sapre (@Nikhil_s147) February 21, 2016
Whatever MS Dhoni said is not as a cricketer but as a Army Colonel also.I support @msdhoni view. Nation first always— Vikas (@vksvrma1) February 21, 2016
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a fading star, with an uncertain future, must be in want of a new game. https://t.co/MEArulLIzS— SANJAY HEGDE (@sanjayuvacha) February 21, 2016
