Omar Abdullah, Gautam Gambhir Clash Over Tweet On Manan Wani

Three days after PhD scholar-turned-militant Manan Wani’s death, National Conference’s Omar Abdullah replied to cricketer Gautam Gambhir’s tweet lamenting Wani’s switch from books to bullets.

Abdullah reacted by questioning Gambhir’s knowledge of the issue and Kashmir to make such comments.

Gambhir’s tweet blamed Abdullah, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party for driving a young man from from studies to militancy.

Omar Abdullah, in his tweet, said that Gambhir’s knowledge of Kashmir is less than Abdullah’s knowledge of cricket, which he according to him is ‘nothing’.
