Virender Sehwag impressed to see Roger Federer's love for COWS, tweet goes viral | See Photos

Why did Virender Sehwag tweet images of Roger Federer with cows? What point was he trying to make?

This is not the first time Virendra Sehwag has tweeted about his concern for cows. Earlier this month he had tweeted a picture of a cow supposedly expressing its gratitude to a monk in Sri Lanka, who saved it from being slaughtered.

After missing the chance of becoming India’s coach, Virender Sehwag is back to doing what he does best – tweet with gay abandon and tweet to attract controversy. What else describes his cryptic tweet in which he shares images of Tennis legend Roger Federer with cows. Okay, we know that cow is an emotive issue in India. And that cow has become the central theme of our political discourse, but was it really so important to drag Federer into the whole controversy to make a point? The Swiss legend is celebrating his eighth Wimbeldon victory oblivious of Sehwag’s obsession with his photos with cows.

First, a look at what Sehwag said about Roger and cow. His tweet read:  “Cow love of the legend Roger Federer. So wonderful to see.” This followed by three pictures of the Tennis legend posing with cow and milking them.

However, it is not clear what exactly Sehwag was trying to convey through this? Or what prompted him to doubt India’s love for cows that he wants his countrymen to seek inspiration from Federer. Also, is he certain that Federer doesn’t eat beef, if at all he was hinting at the current controversy around cow slaughter or lending his support for banning of cow slaughter, which has already been mandated by the government.

If that was his purpose, it was quite futile because Indians top the index when it comes to cow love and they don’t need any inspiration from Federer in that sector at least. The increasing cases of cow vigilantism prove our commitment to the cause of cow protection -cows are much loved and protected in India. Only sometimes, people aren’t. Perhaps, that’s what should concern Sehwag at a time when even the Prime Minister said: “Cow is revered as the mother in our country. Public sentiments are attached with the cow. However, people must know that there is a law to protect the cow and the violation of law is not an alternative.”

Sehwag’s tweet showing Federer’s love for cows did not go well with Twitterati as they found it totally irrelevant. A few tried to get back at him with sarcastic tweets.

This is not the first time Virendra Sehwag has tweeted about his concern for cows. Earlier this month he had tweeted a picture of a cow supposedly expressing its gratitude to a monk in Sri Lanka, who saved it from being slaughtered.
