Remember the constable Manoj Kumar’s patriotic poem, “Kashmir to hoga, Pakistan nahi hoga (Kashmir would remain, Pakistan would not)” that went viral after Uri attacks in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed. Kumar, posted on Facebook that he has received a death threat from the ‘enemy’ but he doesn’t fear and will continue to fight in the same spirit. He also shared screenshots of the messages he recieved.
According to the screenshots, he received the threats from a Facebook user called Farman Khan who said that if given an opportunity, the man would kill Kumar with his own hands. In another message, a man named Bilal Ahmad abused Kumar while criticising him for his poem.
The officer’s poem had won the Internet when he sang, ‘Siyar bhediye se dar sakti singhon ki aulad nahi, bharat vansh k is paani ki hai tumko pehchan nahi‘, which literally translates to ‘the children of lions will not be afraid of the wolves, you do not know the waters that flow through our country.’
And well, his response to the threats was similar. “Friends, I have been receiving threats from the enemy. I am glad they’re shaken. Someone even wants to kill me. But I swear on my land, martyrs, that I will face them head on if ever I come face to face with them,” he wrote in Hindi.
His post has gone viral on social media and people across the country are puring support with ‘we are with you’ messages on his Timeline.
