Gautam Gambhir trolled for his dangerous definition of colours in national flag


Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Thursday caused a huge social media frenzy after he tweeted explaining his own definitions of the three colours of the Indian national flag.

Reacting to the video of CRPF jawans being attacked by stone pelters in Srinagar during elections in the Kashmir valley, Gambhir tweeted, “For every slap on my army’s Jawan lay down at least a 100 jihadi lives. Whoever wants Azadi LEAVE NOW! Kashmir is ours. #kashmirbelongs2us.”

His next tweet read, “Anti-Indians hav forgotten dat our flag also stands 4: saffron – fire of our anger, white – shroud for jihadis, green – hatred 4 terror.”


Both his tweets have gone viral with thousands of people liking and sharing them on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.

However, the former India opener has received plenty of flak for his controversial definitions of three colours of the Indian tricolour. Many asked him why he had not reacted on the video of a stone-pelter being tied to an ‘army’ jeep in Kashmir.

A video in which a youth was allegedly tied to an army jeep as a human shield against stone pelters has gone viral on social media, leading to an outrage with former chief minister Omar Abdullah termed it as “shocking”.

Here are some of the reactions;
