New Delhi: The daughter of Pathankot martyr Lance Naik Moolraj on Friday urged Delhi University student Gurmehar Kaur not to insult her father Captain Mandeep Singh’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 said.

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.
