Mumbai: After Shobha De, Pakistani journalist Omar R Quraishi's insensitive tweet has offended Indians all over. When Sakshi Malik's bronze medal win was being celebrated by the nation and every Indian was swelling with pride, this journalist had a 'different' take on our euphoric sentiments.
The man did not refrain from expressing his discontent on our reasons to celebrate.
Finally one of the 119 competitors that India sent to Rio has won a medal - a bronze - now see how they portray it as if they won 20 golds— omar r quraishi (@omar_quraishi) August 18, 2016
Within no time, Quraishi was being shamed by many, including Amitabh Bachchan.
@omar_quraishi Omar ..! for me it is worth a thousand golds, and even that is not enough. Pride for Sakshi, pride that she is a woman— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) August 18, 2016
Quraishi, went on with his rant and replied to the superstar as well.
Moral of the story is that it takes a teeli tweet for Amitabh Bachchan to respond to you if you are from Pakistan https://t.co/5JiBwd6S8Y— omar r quraishi (@omar_quraishi) August 18, 2016
