Former Indian cricketer and current Twitter sensation, Virender Sehwag, has yet again done something in which he is best at – Tweeting! Following the Ramjas College ruckus, he tweeted out a picture of himself holding a placard that says, “I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did”, along with the message, “Bat me hai Dum ! #BharatJaisiJagahNahi”. This tweet follows the unfortunate violence at the Delhi University college on February 22, in which students and teachers clashed with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members after the latter disrupted the first session of the two-day seminar on Indian tribals over the participation of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid.

Union Minister Kiren Rijiju has also joined the controversy around the daughter of army martyr who lost her father in the Kargil war and took to Twitter to post a picture about it. Minister of State for Home Affairs in Government of India, Kiren Rijiju questioned the girl’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.

Days after this incident, Gurmehar Kaur – daughter of Kargil martyr Capt Mandeep Singh and Voice of Ram volunteer – changed her Facebook profile picture to one with her holding a placard that says, ““I AM A STUDENT OF DELHI UNIVERSITY. I AM NOT AFRAID OF ABVP. I AM NOT ALONE. EVERY STUDENT OF INDIA IS WITH ME. #FIGHTBACKDU #STUDENTSAGAINSTABVP”. This sparked an online campaign as more and more students started changing their profile pictures to ones holding a similar message.

 

It’s believed that Sehwag’s tweet was in response to Kaur’s message, which is what has drawn him a lot of flak from other Twitterati. Here are some funny, angry tweets for Sehwag:
