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.
See Pakistan if your forefathers hadn’t insisted on partition, you wouldn’t have to see this day. Good Night Pak. Happens. Sorry. #IndvsPak.

To which, a Twitter user was quick to reply that if Partition hadn’t happened, “we would’ve had to live in a country with you. Which is unacceptable.”
.@chetan_bhagat If our forefathers hadn’t asked for partition we would’ve had to live in a country with you. Which is unacceptable. Thanks.

Then came the barrage of troll tweets.
@chetan_bhagat Whenever I get writer’s block, I remind myself that someone with that IQ managed to become a bestseller. Keeps me going.

@chetan_bhagat you mean the day the Pakistan women’s team won?

Chetu if your forefathers hadn’t copulated we wouldn’t have to suffer you. @chetan_bhagat

@chetan_bhagat Are you trying to console Pakistan by reminding them that us Indians still have to put up with you?

One even brought up a previous instance of trolling.
@chetan_bhagat Seriously what is wrong with you? This is the precise reason why historians need to be there. But you wouldn’t understand!
