After the poor performance at the Olympics, India’s run at the Rio Paralympics 2016 has been quite inspiring and overwhelming. With four medals in our pocket, the Paralympians have outshined our Olympic qualifiers.
Deepa Malik won a silver medal in women’s shotput event at the Paralympics. Many commended her for her remarkable feat and one of them was our ace cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin.
This is what Ashwin wrote:

But, a die-hard Pakistani cricket fan ridiculed his tweet:
1.2 billion population and just 4 medals. LOL https://t.co/ZVpJ9cEG3F

This unpleasant statement didn’t go well with Ashwin and he felt the need to reply him. He wrote:
@mufc_affanf9 ranked as high as no 6 in the population chart, I wish you to go for the second medal.All the best brothers and sisters.
