Even when the whole country carried the successful launch of Chandrayaan-2, former cricketer Harbhajan Singh received a pitch on Twitter for a post it accuses him of being a bigot.
Singh, whose controversial tweets earned him the label of a motormouth tweeple, chose to take a very strange route to congratulate India and ISRO on the launch of & # 39; a lunar probe.
"Some countries have flagged on their moon … While some countries have been flagging for months," Singh tweeted. He also added flagship files from & # 39; some countries.
Many on Twitter, however, were not surprised to find that the countries named among the countries that have "month on their flags" were all countries by Muslims.
However, many on Twitter responded strongly to the tweet. Activist and CPI (ML) member Kavita Krishnan wrote in strong retort. "Can I explain this highly publicized story to you with some reality? This is the flag of Nepal, also with the second month of it. Literally & # 39; flag & # 39; of all & # 39; Muslim & # 39; countries, is the essence of Islamophobic bait and profiling, "Krishnan wrote.
Can I tell you this beautiful story about something reality? This is the flag of Nepal, also with the Crescent Moon on it. Literally & # 39; flag & # 39; of all & # 39; Muslim & # 39; Countries are the essence of Islamophobic eggs and profiling. Wish you learn a CD from Sri Lankan cricketers and rise above it. pic.twitter.com/HMPkexOE2V

Others also with Singh's trolling.
Sir, now do I understand the similarity between You and Sunday School? No class

Shame on you @harbhajan_singh .Your Tweet is in bad taste and shows Indians in a bad light. You are not a Sportsman. You are a common person I & # 39; ll hope @bcci takes action against You for your common Tweet and stops your retirement. Shame on you.

Even if you reach Saturn, you will still be a small nation trying to end Pakistan. No mercy at all. Make more toilets.

New India. Wherever we conduct our performance by mocking others. What a pity. How easily can indulge a happy cheerful mood in seconds!

What a shame, open bigotry. Reach month is not the best development indicator. Some countries with months on their flags are much ahead on HDI than others who have month-long flags. During a proud national moment you have to add a communal corner, no? Pathetic

However, some actor Kasturi Shankar found nothing insulting to the tweet, and preferred to reject it as a "prudent punchline".
It's a clever punch line, where is it a crime? No need to paint religion and start a war on twitter. (also why is each package response "get first toilets"? is that the only thing you have more than India?)
