Gurmehar-ABVP face-off: Virender Sehwag plays for BCCI, not India, affirms JNU student Umar Khalid

The post by Virender Sehwag was pointed at Gurmehar Kaur, who in a video posted on YouTube held a placard that read, "Pakistan did not kill my father, War did."

As the Gurmehar-ABVP row snowballs, Jawaharlal Nehru University student Umar Khalid has openly supported Gurmehar and students of the DU in condemning former Indian opener Virender Sehwag’s tweet. Virender Sehwag, as is his nature dived into the controversy from nowhere. The ‘nawab of Najafgarh’ has earlier tweeted a image where he had a placard in his hand that read, ” “I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did.” This comment by Sehwag created a stir immediately and also drew a lot of flak.

The post by Virender Sehwag was pointed at Gurmehar Kaur, who in a video posted on YouTube held a placard that read, “Pakistan did not kill my father, War did.”

Countering Virender Sehwag’s tweet, JNU student Umar Khalid posted a counter on his Facebook account which read,  “Virender Sehwag played for BCCI, he does not represent India. The thousands of students and teachers who came out in Delhi University today, they represent India – a vision of a new India based on equality, justice and freedom”.

Earlier, Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda backed Sehwag’s tweet by saying, “Your tweet is even greater than a triple century.”

Is that laughable? Well, Umar Khalid surely thinks otherwise!

In fact, Naseeruddin Shah backed Gurmehar and slammed Sehwag and partner-in crime Randeep Hooda touting their comment as ‘insensitive’.

After this post by Virender Sehwag created a stir, he backtracked on what he said and told that his comments were not aimed at Gurmehar.
