Anupam Kher has become the latest celebrity to jump into recent Gurmehar Kaur row. Kher, who is known for his nationalistic views, said that “Intolerant Gang is back”. In an ostensible attack on those who supported Gurmehar Kaur, Kher tweeted: “The Intorant Gang is back. Same faces, different slogans.:) #Intolerance #AwardWapsi #Emergency #DemonitisationDisaster #BharatKeTukde.”Earlier, a number of politicians and celebrities have spoken in favour/opposition of Gurmehar Kaur kaur’s stand on Kargil and ABVP.

Minutes before Kher’s tweet, Film and Television Institute of India Chairman Gajendra Chauhan demanded an apology from Gurmehar for saying “Pakistan did not kill my father, the Kargil war did.” Chauhan in an interview with India Today, called Gurmehar’s Pakistan statement objectionable.

On contrary, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on slammed Bharatiya Janata Party’s student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidhyarthi Parishad for allegedly threatening the 20 year old. Speaking to media, Kejriwal said BJP’s politics of Gunda-Gardi has been exposed, “Sablog dekh rahe hain, ye BJP ke log pehle khud hi Bharat virodhi naare lagvate hain, fir khud ABVP ke gundo ko bhej ke students ki pitaai karvate hain,(Everyone can see, these BJPians first organise anti-India slogans, then send ABVP goons and thrash other students).”

Kejriwal’s statement came minutes after MoS Home Kiren Rijiju said that controversy over Gurmehar’s statement “isn’t right”. “During war between India & China they (left) supported China; they mislead the youth and it is not right,” Rijiju said. “She(Gurmehar Kaur) is a young girl, creating controversy over her isn’t right. Its about leftists who celebrate when our jawans die,” Rijiju added. Earlier, Rijiju had questioned Gurmehar’s claims that it wasn’t Pakistan but war, that killed her father. Rijiju said that India never attacked any nation but was always on the receiving end of the hatred.
