There’s no hiding the fact about MS Dhoni’s love for the Indian army and forces that continue to safeguard India’s territory from all corners. Even in the past, Dhoni has spoken of his aspirations to join the Indian army and his will to lead the life of a soldier. Post India’s exit in the WC Semi-Final, Dhoni made himself unavailable during India’s tour to West Indies to join the Territorial Army for a period of 15 days in Kashmir.
The former Indian skipper also holds the honorary rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Territorial Army unit of the Parachute Regiment. Dhoni’s passion for Indian military forces has often seen him invite trouble on the cricket field. Even during the World Cup 2019, he was targeted for wearing a Balidan insignia on his wicket-keeping gloves. In one of Dhoni’s recent pictures that went viral over Social media, an Australian journalist targeted him over wearing a T-shirt suggesting his love for the armed forces.
Australian journalist takes a subtle dig at Indian history
Australian journalist Dennis Freedman is known for procuring limelight for his biased comments on the Social media, majorly targeted towards India or Indian cricketers. However, this time around, he crossed his limits while targeting one of Dhoni’s latest picture where the Ranchi-lad is seen wearing a T-shirt glorifying Indian Air force.
Dennis, who loves making inappropriate comments, referenced to the Abhinandan episode, where the Indian wing Commander was captured by the Pakistan Army while destroying their secret launchpads. While Pakistan was forced to release Abhinandan, the Pakistan media hyped it as a great achievement for their Army.
Dennis, whose highly biased opinion in favor of Pakistan is a norm at his various Social media profiles, didn’t amaze a lot of netizens over his recent antics. He faced backlash over Twitter by some of the Indian fans and a few educated Pakistanis who highly condemned his latest ill-provoking tweet.
Here’s what Dennis tweeted:
