Seeing the video, Gambhir and Sehwag have tweeted their anger about the incident. Gambhir tweeted that whoever wants azaadi (Freedom) can leave now. Sehwag tweeted this was unacceptable.

In the three videos, the soldiers are in fatigues as mobs shout “India go back” slogans and hurl abuses in Kashmiri. The authenticity of the video has not yet been verified. According to some sources, the clips were shot on April 9 in Budgam when paramilitary personnel were returning from poll duty.
