Virender Sehwag hails BSF for killing seven Pak rangers, one terrorist in retaliatory firing
In reply to a sniper attack by Pakistani Rangers, the BSF on Friday launched an aggressive 'weapon firing', killing one militant and seven Pakistani Rangers in Jammu and Kashmir'ss Hira Nagar sector.
New Delhi: While former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has the reputation of entertaining the fans on social-media with his funny tweets, the Delhi batsman on Saturday once again turned serious.
Sehwag, who strongly voiced his opinion after the terror attack in Uri town claimed the lives of 18 Indian soldiers, once again took to Twitter to show his patriotic side.
This time, it was to praise Border Security Force (BSF), which killed seven Pak rangers and one terrorist in cross-border firing.
Sehwag not only tweeted the statement released by BSF, but also posted a message that read, "BSF India ki Jai Ho. Boys have again played really well. #PeaceIsATwoWayStreet."
