Facebook campaign by Kargil martyr's daughter rattles BJP bigwigs

Aday before his retirement, Rajendra Prasad - the longest serving principal of Ramjas College - termed the recent violence on campus "unfortunate" and appealed to the students to "confront ideas and not people".

"A girl is being threatened by rape on social media".

But, Sehwag's tweet was directed at an earlier campaign, when she said her father, a soldier who died in Kargil, was killed by war, not Pakistan.

However, others have condemned what they have called "bullying".

Sehwag directly took refer Kaur, the daughter of Mandeep Singh who was killed in the 1999 Kargil war in his tweet or to the violence in Ramjas College last week but posted a picture of him in a similar style. No organisation can threaten women with rape. She has also drawn flak over a post from past year, where she is seen holding a placard that reads, "Pakistan did not kill my father".

Comparing Kaur with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, BJP MP from Mysuru Pratap Simha tweeted on Monday, "At least Dawood did not use the crutches of his father's name to justify his anti-national stand".

"Everybody has freedom but that does not mean that you raise slogans to weaken the country?" Sehwag is one of the few Indian sportspersons who do not hesitate in sharing their views on social media.

Former Indian cricket team captain Virender Sehwag trolled a female university student on Monday for announcing her support for two Muslim students who were attending an event disrupted by a nationalist party. This is about students and campuses.

Hooda, in a reply said, "I agree with you it's is absolutely wrong.have a feeling it's not limited to that in interpretation". However, we have received a letter from DCW.

After several reactions on the facebook post made by the Ramjas college student Gurmehar Kaur, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi gave his remark on February 27 and said that whenever there will be any intolerance people like Gurmehar will evolve. "Professional police action will be taken", said Dependra Pathak, Special Commissioner of Police (Southwest) and spokesperson of Delhi Police.
