A Facebook post by the daughter of a Kargil martyr, Gurmehar Kaur has created a massive stir as she came out to speak against ABVP in the wake of the violence at Ramjas college of Delhi University; after which, Union Minister of Sates for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju enquired over who’s polluting her mind?
Kiren Rijiju took to social media and rweeted, “Who’s polluting this young girl’s mind? A strong Arm Force prevents a war. India never attacked anyone but a weak India was always invaded.”
Gurmehar Kaur, the daughter of Captain Mandeep Singh, has alleged that she was threatened with rape after her social media campaign against the ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad) went viral.

Gurmehar uploaded a profile picture holding a placard which says, “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP”.
This is not the first time that Gurmehar’s posts have created controversies. Earlier in May 2016, she had posted a video in which she held up placards urging peace between India and Pakistan; one of which said, “Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him.”
A number of people have come out to join the campaign kick-started by her. However, ace cricketer Virender Sehwag, who is known for his hilarious tweets, mocked the campaign. He was later joined by Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda, who retweeted his post in appreciation of his wit and humour.

Randeep Hooda’s approval to Virender Sehwag’s post did not go down well with journalist Shekhar Gupta who lashed out at Randeep Hooda saying that this kind of response was not expected from “big-hearted stars”.
