New Delhi: They love Indian flags and understand what it means to be an Indian, especially after representing India. No wonder the attack on CRPF jawans by stone pelters in Srinagar during elections has infuriated cricketers.
Cricket stars Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir have come out in support of CRPF jawans who were attacked by stone pelters in Srinagar during elections in the Kashmir valley.
Images of a stone pelter hitting a CRPF jawan have emerged soon after the elections, leaving the nation enraged.
Both the ace cricketers expressed their anger on social media.
"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," an angry Gambhir wrote on his twitter handle.
"Anti-Indians hav forgotten dat our flag also stands 4: saffron - fire of our anger, white - shroud for jihadis, green - hatred 4 terror," Gambhir wrote in another tweet.
