‘I Didn’t Tweet, My Hands Did’: Gurmehar Kaur on Randeep Hooda’s trolling

NEW DELHI: Gurmehar Kaur, the Delhi University student who got who got embroiled in a controversy for launching a social media campaign against Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) – the BJP’s student wing, has reacted on actor Randeep Hooda clarification on trolling her.

The daughter of army martyr Captain Mandeep Singh retweeted a news article on Randeep’s statement and wrote ‘I didn’t tweet my hands did’.

Kaur, a student of Delhi’s Lady Shri Ram College, had posted on Facebook a photograph of herself holding a placard that read: “I am a student from Delhi University. I am not afraid of ABVP. I am not alone. Every student of India is with me”, following violence in Ramjas College in Delhi University last month.

Kaur’s biting response has set Twitter on fire. Check out some of the reactions:

When asked to clarify his tweet, Hooda said, “It wasn’t gender specific. I was and I am against politicisation of personal opinions. There was an axe to grind and considering the environment in the country vis-a-vis women, in hindsight, I do believe I should have been more careful.”

Randeep, who was speaking at the launch of second season of MTV Big F a show which he will be hosting, said being an actor, he is often trolled on social media but for Kaur, it must have been traumatic.

As an actor I have faced this (trolling) before and will have it in future but as a young person to face this would be very traumatic and she shouldn’t have gone through this.”
