The photo of a Jamia Millia Islamia staff Rihan Khan Suri can be seen on TV channels trying to shield Jamia alumnus Verender Sehwag from reporters who tried to get his reaction over his Sunday night tweet directed against Gurmehar Kaur, a student of Delhi’s Lady Sri Ram College, and daughter of Kargil martyr Captain Mandeep Singh, who a few days ago launched online campaign against ABVP violence in Ramjas College in a clash with AISA.
Though the North Campus clash had taken place on Wednesday, the controversy rages both online and offline with some supporting Kaur’s campaign and some berating her.
Holding a placard, she wrote: “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me,” and #studentsagainstABVP.
The clash on twitter started new after former Indian cricketer Sehwag tweeted on the subject.
“I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did” and saying “Bat me hai Dum!” along with #BharatJaisiJagahNahi, he tweeted.
His post was cheered by Randeep Hooda, claimed Indiatoday.com report.
Others too jumped in however, there were many who berated Sehwag also.
And today when Sehwag turned up at an event organised by an NGO run by Jamia alumni, many reporters tried to take his comment on the issue. He refused to comment on the issue. All told, Kaur also alleged that she was getting rape threat online. Police have filed an FIR after the DCW filed a written complaint seeking security for the girl.
Meanwhile, reports have surfaced that trolls have succeeded in silencing 20-year-old Kaur, who has decided to leave Delhi.
