Revealed: Why are many Haryanvi sports people pissed with Gurmehar Kaur? 

Is it a coincidence that after Virender Sehwag and Randeep Hooda—both hailing from Haryana—other celebrities have joined in to target Gurmeher Kaur?

Politics isn’t always a grand conspiracy. Most of the time, it is a comedy of errors. That’s exactly what has happened with Gurmehar Kaur. In last 48 hours, we have seen prominent Haryanvi sports people, including Phogat sisters and Yogeshwar Dutt, attack Gurmehar.

Is it a coincidence that after Virender Sehwag and Randeep Hooda—both hailing from Haryana—other celebrities have joined in to target her?

Actually, no! It all started with journalist Rana Ayyub’s tweet on 26th February. After initial tweets by Sehwag and Hooda, and subsequent rebuttal by Shekhar Gupta and Barkha Dutt, Ayyub pointed out that both the men who mocked the 20-year-old Kaur, are from Haryana.

And hell broke loose after that. Ayyub isn’t necessarily the darling of the right, and was at the receiving end due to ABVP’s violence at Ramjas College. The right wing well-oiled machinery kicked in on the social media with many suggesting that Ayyub has insulted Haryana.


Ayyub clarified her stand and pointed out to the misogynistic nature of comments by Hooda and Sehwag.

If you thought things would end there, you are completely mistaken. Babita Phogat of the Dangal fame jumps into the controversy. Her first tweets are not about Gurmehar, but she reacts to Ayyub’s tweet on Haryana.

Ayyub again clarifies that she was tweeting about the two Haryanvi men.


When Ayyub asked Babita about her view on Gurmehar, she was very direct with her response.

Geeta Phogat also joined into the controversy by tweeting this.

Both went ahead and gave statements to ANI against Gurmehar.

And just when you thought, we are done for the day. Another Haryanvi Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt jumped into the controversy with creative meme criticising Gurmehar.

Needless to say, he was RTed over seven thousand times.

Once again Ayyub took him on and was quick to respond.

That kind of answers the mystery of Haryanvi sports people’s obsession with Gurmehar Kaur.
