Virender Sehwag, like many other Indians, celebrated International Court of Justice’s stay order on Kulbhushan Jadhav’s execution in Pakistan. The former India opener did not stop there as he lambasted a Twitter troll on the issue.

After the verdict, Sehwag tweeted “Satyamev Jayate ! #KulbhushanJadhav”. He was trolled by a Twitter user - Farhan Zahoor - who said: “You guys hv less brains? The final decision yet to come and even though icj stays whtever we ll hang him go where ever on ur choic#pak.”

Virender Sehwag’s reply to the troll was epic. “In your dreams ,just like beating India in a World Cup. Kutta Paalo, Billi Paali, galat fahmi mat paalo. #KulbushanJadhav,” he wrote. Sehwag has a triple century against Pakistan scored at Multan.

Mohammad Kaif also tweeted on the issue and was trolled too. “Congratulations India. Thanks to the International Court of Justice , justice has prevailed. #KulbhushanJadhav,” Kaif wrote on his Twitter account.

This statement got a negative reaction from a Pakistani Twitter user, Aamir Akram. “Please remove Mohammad from your name first !” Akram wrote.

Mohammad Kaif’s reply to his troll was on-your-face. “Wow ! If I support India’s victory , I should remove Mohammad. I am proud of my name. Aamir means “full of life” , you need to get one,” Kaif wrote in his reply.

Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was convicted of alleged espionage and terrorism by Pakistan. He has, however, gained a temporary reprieve on Thursday as ICJ ordered Pakistan not to execute him.
