Mumbai: Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir and Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah were on Friday involved in a heated discussion on Twitter following the killing of terrorist Manan Wani.

Manan, a research scholar-turned-terrorist, was killed on early Thursday morning.

 

“Mannan Wani’s death: We killed a terrorist and lost a radicalised talent. @OmarAbdullah @MehboobaMufti @INCIndia @BJP4India all should bow their heads in embarrassment that they left a young man drift from books to embrace bullet,” said Gambhir in his tweet.

“This man wouldn’t be able to find Manan’s home district on a map much less his village & yet he presumes to know what drives young men in Kashmir to pick up the gun. Mr Gambhir clearly knows less about Kashmir than I do about cricket & I know almost nothing,” replied Omar Abdullah.

And then began the war of words.
