Twitter’s favourite controversy’s child, Chetan Bhagat, has gone and done it again — given reason to Netizens to troll him, yet again. The novelist has previously gotten into trouble with his tweets on topics like the JNU row to questioning what historians do. His latest tweet, right after the India-Pakistan T20 has people up in arms on both sides of the border. He tweeted: “See Pakistan if your forefathers hadn’t insisted on partition, you wouldn’t have to see this day. Good Night Pak. Happens. Sorry.” India beat Pakistan by six wickets in the WT2o match on March 19, the same day the Pakistan women’s team beat India in the women’s WT20 match.

Then came the barrage of troll tweets.
