New Delhi: Virender Sehwag has continued to entertain his fans post retirement through his witty one-liners on Twitter.
Carefree Viru is all over the social micro-blogging site - from engaging in banter with adversaries to delivering hilarious birthday greetings to his friends.
Every day, the former India opener ups the ante with his tweets.
On Wednesday however, the 37-year-old switched gears to talk about a rather serious issue.
While most cricketers tend to stay away from contentious issues, Viru like always prefers to break the norm.

Usually Viru's fans and followers join him in trolling his target for the day. However, replies to this particular tweet from Viru led to a very interesting and informative conversation.
@virendersehwag Rape is a serious crime that shouldn't be brushed under the carpet. It's rampant in India and needs to be addressed.

@virendersehwag I completely agree with you on this front. But, we should also keep in m ind that many of case goes unreported in India.

@virendersehwag but its the stats for "reported ones" may our figure of reported and unrepoted rapes be 0...!

@virendersehwag reported no. rapes are far lesser than actual no. of rapes. The victim fears societal ostracism most in India, I presume

@virendersehwag sir even if it's true we shouldn't be happy, just because h'humari kameez tumse jyada safed hai' it should be absolute zero!

@virendersehwag hope for the same, but sir it can be seen other way also, people report it in other countries believing in justice.
