ISLAMABAD – Journalist and Public News TV presenter Owais Tohid is getting trolled on Twitter after tweeting on the war hysteria in the Indian cricket team.
His tweet that unleashed trolls referred to the Indian players who wore camouflaged military caps in a one-day international against Australia last week.
Their doing so meant showing support for the India military that is trying to impose war on Pakistan.
“Sad to see war hysteria in Indian cricket team with great players like
@imVkohli & @msdhoni leading it...Millions young players of subcontinent idealise such stars. Heroes shouldn’t act like losers.. they should learn lesson from Sidhu… @sherryontopp” tweeted Tohid.
Havenâ€™t faced such trolling since I am on Twitter. It suggests war hysteria not only restricted to Indian cricket team but unfortunately widespread in India https://t.co/YxlewpdmYw— Owais Tohid (@OwaisTohid) March 9, 2019
As the trolls opened the floodgates, the presenter turned to Twitter again. “Haven’t faced such trolling since I am on Twitter. It suggests war hysteria not only restricted to Indian cricket team but unfortunately widespread in India.”
