Virender Sehwag’s trolling of Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur angered many. Now, Olympic medal winning wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt has also posted a meme, which may add fuel to the fire.
Dutt’s post has an image of Gurmehar along with Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden and a Black Buck.
The picture of Hitler read: “Did not kill jews GAS DID.” Bin Laden’s image said: “Did not kill people BOMBS DID.” And the Black Buck image said: “Bhai didn’t kill me BULLETS DID”, drawing reference to an incident which allegedly involved actor Salman Khan.
Gurmehar, daughter of Captain Mandeep Singh who died fighting with militants in Kashmir, had posted a picture on her Facebook profile after the violent clashes in Delhi University’s north campus.
In the photo, she holds a placard which reads, “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP”.
Earlier, Sehwag also trolled her. He didn’t refer to the recent image while trolling the student, but his point of reference was an old image of Gurmehar, in which she holds a placard saying: “Pakistan did not kill my dad, war did.”
Sehwag, who is known for his slapstick comments on Twitter, posted an image of him holding a placard, which read: “I didn’t two score triple centuries, my bat did.”
This tweet by Sehwag went viral. He received flak too for his sly comment, while actor Randeep Hooda, who supported Sehwag, was also critcised.
You're welcome to call me what u want. She's no "poor girl" or "pawn." She's a strong, thinking adult who speaks her mind, handle patriarchy https://t.co/cKhgAumFcf— Shekhar Gupta (@ShekharGupta) February 26, 2017
Later, Sehwag evaded questions on the tweet trolling Gurmehar.
Even Dutt’s post was also not well received.
