Virender Sehwag now clarifies that his tweet was not meant for Gurmehar Kaur

Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag, who sparked controversy against Kargil martyr's daughter Gurmehar Kaur for talking against ABVP's vandalism in Ramjas college, has said on Tuesday that his tweet was not intended for the Delhi University student and a sudden idea.

While speaking to media, Sehwag said, ” My tweet wasn’t intended for Gurmehar. It was plain fun but people construed the other way,”

India Today quoted as he saying.

Earlier, the opener stirred a controversy when he posted a photo on Twitter in which he is seen holding a placard which read,  “I didn’t score two triple centuries, my bat did”, along with the message “Bat me hai Dum ! #BharatJaisiJagahNahi”.

Many prominent persons including BJP leaders openly came against Kaur by retweeting Sehwag and some even compared her to underworld criminal Dawood Ibrahim.











Referring to the vandalism allegedly unleashed by ABVP in Ramjas college for inviting JNU student leader Umar Khalid for a talk, Kaur changed her Facebook profile picture holding a placard which reads,  “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me. #StudentsAgainstABVP”.

The campaign immediately went viral with many coming in solidarity and doing the same, while other lashed at her for taking a stand against ABVP.
