“Don’t hang me over a laugh,” says Randeep Hooda, who clapped and shared laughing emoticons on Virender Sehwag’s troll of the young girl, Gurmehar Kaur. This rollercoaster controversy is taking a new turn every day. Gurmehar, a DU student who is also a martyr’s daughter started a campaign for peace between India and Pakistan with a video revealing her story.
Her father died in the 1999 Kargil War, but the girl wants peace between the countries. In a video, she was holding a paper which read, “Pakistan did not kill my father, War did”. This enraged some people and they started trolling her on Twitter as an anti-nationalist. Cricketer Virender Sehwag also trolled her with a picture – a paper which reads, “I did not score two triple centuries, my bat did”. Randeep and many others shared a laugh and trolled the young girl.
Now the issue has escalated and people are supporting Gurmehar’s peace campaign. Both the cricketer and the actor are receiving backlashes from people as the young girl received rape and death threats as she was termed anti-nationalist by famous personalities on social media.
Randeep has now justified his laugh over the troll. Click HERE to see Randeep’s post.
