After Virender Sehwag’s tweet on slain Army officer’s daughter Gurmehar Kaur, wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt also posted a version of it on social media – in the form of a meme. His tweet was followed up by further retweets with hashtag of #BharatJaisiJagahNahi which was also advocated by Sehwag in his post.

The tweet in question has Kaur’s much criticised placard holding clip which says “Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him” and goes on to have comparisons with pictures of Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden and a black buck. Each picture has subsequent text surrounding it which reads, “Did not kill Jews, Gas did” (Hitler); “Did not kill people, Bombs did” (Bin Laden) and “Bhai (Salman Khan) did not kill me, bullets did” (black buck).

Earlier on Sunday night, Sehwag shared his own version of the placard wielding pictures post the Ramjas College violence. The placard read, “I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did”, along with the message, “Bat me hai Dum ! #BharatJaisiJagahNahi”.

This comes after violence on the Ramjas College campus at Delhi University when students and teachers clashed with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members when the latter disrupted a session of the two-day seminar on Tribal India over the participation of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students, Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid.

Days after this incident, Gurmehar Kaur – daughter of slain martyr Captain Mandeep Singh – 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”. A year back, she had participated in a video in which she held up a controversial card that said, “Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him”.


This comes after Babita Phogat had condemned Kaur for her anti-India stance while maintaining that if she’s receiving rape threats, then that should stop.

    If everyone who doesn't hate stan is a traitor, Modi started 2016 attending weddings and having breakfast in stan. 2 days later pathankot attacks happened, what about his hypocrisy then. We forgave him for that right? I didn't see any rape threats for him!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If the PM is not answerable for his stupidity, why is a 20 yr old college girl? Just because she choses to not hate stan. Why is a 20 yr old college girl being subjected to what the PM was not. What about the hypocrisy in that?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And what about all universities being a threat to democracy since the new government came to power, what is the hidden agenda there? Why not call a spade a spade?

      Gurmehar Kaur message does not make any sense !lt;br/gt;She should realize by now that leftist , award wapasi gang, jnu dimwits are making use of her naivety and should retreat to avoid further embarrment !lt;br/gt;I suspects her overall intentions are good and correct, however her means are muddled , wrong and immature !lt;br/gt;She should be happy that the country will be forever grateful to her family for her father's sacrifices.

        What's wrong? Everything said by Yogeshwar was based on the logic put out by the girl... Yogeshwar did not invent the logic. Liberals and free loaders get offended, when the logic, they vouched is turned against them.

            This is a political drama enacted by anti-nationalists and pla by media to boost TRPs. Nationalists have been sucked into this drama. As usual nationalists are being accused and abused. However, one thing is for sure that anti-nationalists are loosing ground in India and trying to creating controversies to remain alive at least in media.
