Topman criticised by Liverpool fans for selling red '96 karma' t-shirt

The clothing retailer Topman has faced sustained criticism over the release of a red shirt featuring a rose and the number 96 - the number of people who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

Topman is coming under mounting pressure to withdraw a controversial shirt from sale after being criticised for displaying an apparent reference to the Hillsborough disaster.

"I think there are too many coincidences", she told BBC Two's Victoria Derbyshire programme.

Bidya Bhandari re-elected as Nepal's Prez
She also won two others elections from Kathmandu-2 in 1994 and 1999. "She had good rapport with top leaders of both parties". Her clean and uncontroversial image is one of the main reason for Bhandari re-election as head of the Himalayan country.

The retailer advertised a red, long-sleeved shirt on their website for £20 on Thursday.

The song's lyrics include the line: "It's called karma, baby, and it goes around / What goes around comes around". "And that's why I believe this T-shirt is definitely connected and referenced to Hillsborough".

Ms Brookes said: "Our 96 were decent human beings who did nothing wrong".

PV Sindhu enters semifinals of All England Championship
Star Indian shuttler PV Sindhu defeated Japan's Nozomi Okuhara to enter the semi-final of All England Open 2018 on Friday. The Indian Ace shuttler had to tackle some adversity as she made her way to the semi-final of the tournament.

While it's easy to see how the message could be misconstrued (what was your first thought when you saw it?), Topman have since issued an apology explained that the design was an innocent reference to a Bob Marley song released in 1996 called "What Goes Around Comes Around".

Ms Brookes, whose 26-year-old brother died at the stadium, said the phrases "karma" and "what goes around comes around" were used by some rival fans who claimed Hillsborough was "God's punishment" for the Heysel disaster in which 39 mostly-Juventus fans died at a match against Liverpool.

Jamie added that "we tried to get a lot of people to talk to us about this story, not one person wanted to come on and talk about Topshop/Topman in a derogatory light".

'Ram Sethu will not be affected by Sethusamudram'
Under pressure from the BJP-led Opposition, the UPA government was later forced to withdraw the affidavit filed by the ASI. The affidavit was filed on March 13 by Anant Kishore Saran, director of the ministry of shipping .

Labour MP for Wirral South, Alison McGovern, tweeted the company about the t-shirt.
