“There are perhaps many causes worth dying for, but to me, certainly, there are none worth killing for.”
Albert Dietrich, Army GI, Pacifist CO: The World War II Letters of Frank and Albert Dietrich
Information truly travels faster than light and sound in the 21st Century. A video that portrayed the rage and anguish of a girl, who lost her father in the militant attack in Jammu and Kashmir in 1999, has now been reduced to an unforgivable and unpardonable mockery by two very reputed and influential personalities.
The first one being ace cricketer, Virendra Sehwag. Known for his wit and sharp sense of humor, Sehwag posted something on his twitter account that ended up rubbing many people the wrong way.
Just a few minutes after this tweet, the entire world of social media was divided into two halves, there was a section that agreed to what his sarcastic take was, the other one slammed him and threw a lot of brickbats.
The one person, however, who not only supported him but also laughed off the entire episode was the Hindi film actor, RANDEEP HOODA.
With his tweet comprising of the clapping and laugh-out-loud emojis, it was lamentable to see the actor stoop down to such a low.
It would be better if Mr. Sehwag and Mr. HOODA realize the miseries and misfortunes that befall a martyr’s family. Both the personalities have paved way for mixed reactions and hurling of abuses on both Facebook and Twitter. Let’s see how far this incident goes.
Till then, be careful with your tweets, sirs.
