Sehwag slams Indian Express for misleading post about his stance on Paramilitary forces

The Sports Bureau of the Indian Express today incurred the wrath of former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag after their tweet mischievously tried to mislead people into believing that Sehwag had criticized the Indian Paramilitary forces.

The Express Sports (sports section of Indian Express) put out this tweet:

The accompanying text which even tagged Sehwag claimed that he had for some reason slammed the Paramilitary forces but the link clearly specified that the article was about his tweet condemning the assault on the CRPF Jawan in Kashmir.

This was the tweet on which the Indian Express’s article was based. Here one can clearly see that Sehwag was slamming those who had assaulted the Jawan and was not criticizing the Paramilitary forces:

But the completely erroneous tweet by the Indian Express irked Sehwag who responded:

After he did so, they promptly deleted the tweet. Thankfully Sehwag had taken a screenshot which he put up soon:

After the outrage, Express Sports put out a fresh tweet with the correct information:

This either might have been a mistake by those handling the Indian Express Sport’s twitter account or as claimed by Sehwag it could have been an unethical attempt to generate clicks for the article.
Doing what is rarely seen in the Indian Media, Express Sports apologized to Sehwag for its error:

Well, you don’t mess with Viru paji!
