After the CBI court found self-proclaimed Godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim guilty, his followers went on a rampage setting ablaze public property and creating panic in parts of Punjab and Haryana.  Many celebs took to Twitter to express their anguish over the violence. Cricketer Gautam Gambhir also did not hold back his anger after the horrors that people of Panchkula faced due to the hooliganism of Gurmeet’s followers’ . Gambhir tweeted on August 26, “Wonder what Rahim & Ram are thinking about man about the ‘Insaan’ & his misdeed today! A classic case of religion marketing”.

Gambhir’s tweet was hard-hitting and was aimed at spreading a message. The Kolkata Knight Riders’ captain is always quick to react on any issue that concerns the nation, be it Jawaans being hit in Kashmir valley, the Gurmehar Kaur case or starting a campaign to respect our soldiers. The Panchkula violence that caused the death of 32 people was bound to get this attention.

Gambhir is not looking to bog down from opposing the self-proclaimed God’s brainless followers who used violence to get heard. His tweet is a slap on every follower of his justifying his actions and calling him a ‘Man of God’ instead of calling him a criminal.
