'Pakistani supporter' army general schools 'upstart' Abhijeet in single tweet
Abhijeet Bhattacharya is at it again! The singer has stirred up a controversy by calling an army veteran "Pak supporter" after he condemned the viral photos and video that emerged of a civilian being tied to the bonnet of an Indian army jeep in Kashmir as a 'human shield' against stone-pelters.
The singer has a motor mouth that has sparked controversy time and again with the 'garbage' he spews on Twitter and he has done it again.
Abhijeet went on a hate-filled rant against retired Lieutenant General Harcharanjit Singh Panag, the former Commanding officer of the Northen Command and Central Command of the Indian Army and a the only three-star General from the Mechanised Infantry.
On April 15th, the retired Lt Gen had reacted to the viral video of the shocking incident and tweeted:
Image of a 'stone pelter' tied in front of a jeep as a 'human shield',will 4 ever haunt the Indian Army&the nation!— Lt Gen H S Panag(R) (@rwac48) April 15, 2017
The former armyman had even reiterated his stand saying that he believed that "whatever the provocation, the Indian Army cannot take recourse to illegal acts".
But this got Abhijeet all riled up and ready to spew venom.
He posted, "U r a Pak supporter, wish you were kicked, beaten & humiliated on the streets of Kashmir & then wd hv seen ur reaction."

Well, the retired general, who has been honoured with several gallantry awards, isn't one take things lying down and responded to the trolls, especially Abhijeet in a tweet.
His response was spot on and shut down Abhijeet in a single tweet.

Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju also had a scathing response to the Bollywood singer Abhijeet, comparing him to a donkey.
THIS IS WHAT STARTED THE ABUSE:
Whatever the Provocation, the Indian Armed Forces Cannot Take Recourse to Illegal Acts. I endorse the views! https://t.co/KetiP3YESW
