Lately, Virender Sehwag has taken a jibe at Kaur, a Delhi University student who took on Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) workers for creating a ruckus outside Ramjas College last week with a signature placards. The cricketer didn’t name Kaur, a daughter of Captain Mandeep Singh who was killed in the 1999 Kargil war, but shared a photo of him standing with a placard that reads, “I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did.
Kaur had released videos months back in which she stated that it was not Pakistan but the war (between two countries) that killed her father. Sehwag’s picture may be a copy of that and was commended by Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda and few others. Soon Sehwag attracted huge backlash and was being called insensitive towards a soldier’s daughter by people including many prominent personalities.
Now Gambhir has joined the bandwagon and took to twitter to express what he feels about the entire issue and Sehwag’s jibe at Kaur.
