Twitterati term Gautam Gambhir a 'sanghi' for his 'For every slap on jawan, kill 100 jihadis' tweet!

Gautam Gambhir has been lashed out at by Twitterati for supporting Indian Army after a video went viral showing Kashmiris beating CRPF jawans

Gautam Gambhir has been in news these days but not just for Kolkata Knight Riders’ performance in Indian Premier League (IPL) 10 but his comments on Kashmiris beating CRPF jawans. The whole story started when a video went viral where Kashmiris were beating CRPF jawans who were carrying EVM machines during Election days. There was much outrage on the issue on social media, it was pretty much expected that Gambhir would voice his opinions on the matter and he did.

Gambhir has been vocal about his support for the Indian Army and his utmost respect for them. On seeing the video he tweeted in disgust which went viral on April 13, his tweet read, “For every slap on my Army’s Jawan lay down at least a 100 jihadi lives. Whoever wants Azadi LEAVE NOW! Kashmir is ours. #kashmirisours”.

His reply was only meant for the ones who wanted to hurt Indian Army personnel but a few Twitterati took it in an offending manner as they lashed out at Gambhir.

Gambhir did not just post one tweet, he followed it up with, “Anti-Indians have forgotten that out flag stands for: saffron-fire of our anger, white- shroud of our jihadis, green-hatred for terror”

Gambhir was told to shut up by Twitterati and told to stick to cricket and not indulge in such a sensitive manner. They did not just shut him up but also declared him as ‘Sanghi’. A few termed him as a ‘failed cricketer’ as well.

Gambhir has proved in past that he does not support the so-called ‘Nationalists’ or Pseudo-nationalist as he came in support of Gurmehar Kaur as well. He urged people not to mock her, instead, respect her views and intention for achieving peace between the two nations.

Not just Gambhir but former cricketer and Twitter sensation Virender Sehwag too backed him up showing there is no love lost between former Indian openers after they disagreed on Ishant Sharma’s base price.
