networking site Twitter turned to ground zero when a DU student, named Gurmehar
Kaur was mocked by cricketer Vriendar Sehwag and actor Randeep Hooda for
launching an online campaign against the ABVP after its violence in Ramjas
holding placard, Virender Sehwag posted an image on Twitter which said", I
didn’t scored two triple centuries but my bat did", and said: "Bat
mein hai Dum! Bharat jaisi Jagha Nahi."
Randeep Hooda in support of Virender Sehwag retweeted the post which mocked
Gurmehar Kaur, apparently.
Lady Shri Ram College and daughter of martyr Captain Mandeep Singh, Gurmehar
Kaur, made a Facebook post against Ramjas college giving it a hashtag
She posted a
picture holding a placard, which said"I am a student from Delhi
University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is
with me." This post went viral with hundreds of shares. She also shared
poster saying, "Pakistan did not kill my dad, war killed him."
tweet was in reference to the second picture.
support of Virender Sehwag said "It was just very witty of Viru to come
with "Bat mein Dum". Can't you see the irony? Defuse the situation
He also said
that "She (Gurmehar) is being made a pawn."
retorted with: "Really sweet of you to encourage the hate I've been
receiving. Makes me feel happy that I adored your work :) Pawn? I can think. I
don't support violence perpetuated on students? Is that so wrong (sic)."
were many exchanges of such tweets and after being trolled and threatened for
rape, Kaur approached Delhi Commission and complained against the online
threats she received on Twitter.
