Virender Sehwag and Mohammad Kaif Defend ICJ’s Verdict For Kulbhushan Jadhav from Trolls

On the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) startlingly flared up the world by putting a halt to the much foreseen death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav. On Thursday at the Hague, the ICJ halted the above death sentence ordering Pakistan to ensure that the Indian is not executed until a final decision was taken in his case. As soon as the verdict trickled in, the ministers in government, celebrities and the public at large took to social media to express their delight at the ICJ’s ruling. “The ICJ order has come as a great relief to the family of Kulbhushan Jadhav and people of India,” tweeted Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, echoing the sentiments of her fellow citizens.

When following the chorus the former Indian Cricketers Virender Sehwag and Mohammad Kaif joined the coterie of masses. A few trolls from Pakistan unleashed their malevolent attack on them. But in reciprocal to that Sehwag and Kaif both stood out stronger than their Pakistani trolls as Sehwag’s retaliation was considered to be very pernicious for his trolls and similarly Kaif’s reciprocation cropped up as a mouth shut for his trolls.

Virender Sehwag and Farhan Zahoor:

Mohammad Kaif and Amir Akram:

The cricketer minced no words in conveying that none had a right to claim ownership over any religion, none had rights to declare ownership over any name and that India was by far the most inclusive and tolerant country. Kaif’s message was shared widely and the cricketer has been hailed for his stance.

Both these cricketers Sehwag and Kaif shut these trolls up with a befitting reply. Claiming that he was proud of his name and took pride in supporting India, they gave the trolls exactly what he deserved, a piece of his mind.

Sehwag and Kaif, unlike most celebrities, don’t really hold back when under attack from Twitter trolls. While Viru has been termed ‘Twitter King’, Kaif is slowly but surely catching up with his former India teammate.
