Ravichandran Ashwin is one of the most promising Indian cricketers of the young generation. He is the third Indian who has won ICC Cricketer of the Year award. Apart from showing his skills on the field, Ashwin is known for being equally active on social media as well.
Sri Lanka is engulfed with deadly communal violence these days and a state of emergency has been declared in order to control the situation. Commoners and celebrities alike are expressing their thoughts and prayers for the people of Sri Lanka. Ashwin too, tweeted on the issue hoping that the stand-off in Sri Lanka will end soon. Take a look at his tweet:
What’s happening in Sri Lanka is really sad, such a lovely country with such lovely people and surely this stand off between people with different beliefs will end soon. Let’s live and let live, important to accept differences and move on. 🙏praying for normalcy soon enough.

Unexpectedly, the tweet didn’t go well with his followers and they trolled him for it. Take a look at some of these tweets:
Sir due respect but never have sympathy towards them as what they have done with our Tamil people in past

Ashwin, you know what happened in 1983? Or you know what happened during 2009? Kind of opening for another war,

Although there were some who supported him, and few Sri Lankan’s thanked him as well. Take a look at their tweets:
Hard to see this!!! Enough is enough, we stand together for unity!

Thank you Ashwin. Love, from Sri Lanka 🙂

Majority of the sri Lankan are against this and they are not involved in it.
But a group of people try to make this a big problem and provoke people.
Hope things will be under control ASAP.
