RS Pura (Jammu and Kashmir) [India]: Gurjeet Kaur, the sister of slain Border Security Force (BSF) jawan Gurnam Singh, on Friday urged Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur not to make a joke of her father Captain Mandeep Singh’s sacrifice.
“Gurmehar Kaur has insulted her father’s brave act for the country. She should not have said that. She has hurt our sentiments and emotions attached to it. I just want to ask Gurmehar to stop insulting her father’s sacrifice and stop criticizing the people who have given their lives for this country,” Gurjeet told ANI.
This comes after the daughter of Pathankot braveheart Lance Naik Moolraj on Friday urged Gurmehar not to insult her father’s sacrifice.
“I just want to ask Gurmehar to stop insulting her father’s sacrifice. Please Gurmehar stop criticizing the people, who have given their lives for this country and the people, who have lost their sons and fathers,” the girl Pooja told ANI.
Gurmehar shot to limelight last week after her Facebook post taking on the RSS-backed Akhil Bharatiya Vidya Parishad (ABVP) went viral. She also drew flak after one of her older social media posts on her father, killed in Kashmir during the Kargil war, and her perceptions about Pakistan and war surfaced.
“Pakistan did not kill my father. War killed him,” read one part of the post.
Clashes had erupted last week after the ABVP allegedly manhandled and thrashed students protesting the cancellation of an event at Ramjas College at which controversial JNU student Umar Khalid was scheduled to speak. (ANI)
