New Delhi: Olympic wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt has become the latest celebrity to enter in the war of words being fought on social media on Gurmehar Kaur issue.
Dutt took 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. 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.
