After Sehwag and Hooda, Babita Phogat and Toshi Sabri take on anti-nationals on social media

Virender Sehwag’s one tweet has set off a chain of reactions on social media. As reported here, Sehwag poked fun at the message delivered by Gurmehar Kaur with her placards. Actor Randeep Hooda liked the joke, and was eventually targetted by left liberals on social media. He gave them a fitting answer with his tweets. But it did not stop there. Then came the media editorials and reports, which made a villain out of Hooda. Hooda in his defence wrote a long Facebook post calling out the people who were hounding him.

In the midst of all this, when the attacks on Hooda via social media were going on, controversial journalist Rana Ayyub had attacked Haryana, just because Hooda hailed from the state:

In response to this crass stereotyping, wrestler Babita Phogat of Dangal fame stepped in to the fight to stop her state Haryana from being denigrated at the hands of compromised journalists:

A flabbergasted Rana Ayyub tried to spin the slap and virtue signalled Phogat to support Gurmehar Kaur and her cause:

But the wrestler showed how she is used to such false moves, and asked how can one stand along with someone who speaks ill about the country:

About then, Congress hack Pallavi Ghosh from CNN News 18 tried to attack Phogat too:

To which pat came the crisp and clear reply from Phogat:

Phogat did not face the same insults which Hooda faced probably because many victim cards such as sexism, young age etc do not work on her. Phogat also received support from unexpected quarters when singer and music composer Toshi Sabri applauded Phogat’s strong “slap” on Rana Ayyub’s face:

Sabri too reiterated the “country first” stand and also asked who is funding the anti-India sloganeers in India’s colleges:

Sabri would now do well to be prepared for an onslaught from radical Islamists for taking such a stand, given what happened to Zaira Wasim a few weeks back.
