Gurmehar Kaur's father's soul won't rest in peace if she speaks against the nation: Babita Phogat

New Delhi: After sportsmen Virender Sehwag, Yogeshwar Dutt seemed to troll Gurmehar Kaur on Twitter, Indian woman wrestlers Babita Phogat and Geeta Phogat also came down heavily on her saying, the Kargil Martyr’s soul won’t rest in peace with the comments she made.

“When I saw the video of Gurmehar Kaur, I tweeted on the one thing which I found wrong. She said that her father was killed by war and not by Pakistan. That is what I found wrong because it is against our nation and our bravehearts. It is an insult for them. How can her father’s soul rest in peace if she speaks against the nation? Her father’s soul will only rest in peace if his daughter speaks in favour of the nation,” Babita said in an exclusive interview to ANI.

Babita’s sister, Geeta was also of the same opinion and said that it is very obvious that the countrymen would not spare you if you speak against the nation.

“If you speak against nation, people will obviously not like it. See if someone goes against the nation, he or she won’t be spared irrespective of gender,” Geeta said.

Earlier, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag appeared on Twitter with a placard post reading: “I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did”. The post came with a message saying, “Bat me hai Dum! #BharatJaisiJagahNahi”.

Gurmehar Kaur, daughter of Kargil martyr Captain Mandeep Singh who alleged rape threats over her social media campaign on Tuesday along with some students staged a protest march against Delhi University campus violence.

In a series of tweets, the 20-year-old also appealed to others to join the “Save DU” march at the Delhi University campus by students and teachers in huge numbers.

Kaur was given police protection on Monday after she was trolled with tweets threatening rape over her Facebook post against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP).

Violation erupted last week after the ABVP students allegedly manhandled and thrashed students protesting the cancellation of an event at Ramjas College at which controversial JNU student Umar Khalid was scheduled to speak.

Earlier on Tuesday, Olympic wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt became the latest celebrity to enter in the war of words being fought on social media on Gurmehar Kaur issue.

Dutt had taken to Twitter comparing the Delhi University student Kaur with Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, and a black buck of Salman Khan’s Black Buck case.
