Comedian Tanmay Bhat has gained a reputation for giving opinions and making comments over political and national issues. Moreover, the man brings in some sense to his quirky yet spot on comments. This time Tanmay narrated a story from his school day, carving out an important message in light of the terror attack at Uri. The worst cross-border attack took lives of 18 soldiers of Indian Army. Tanmay tweeted an incident from school, when he had to go against and argue the motion in a debate over ‘Should India go to war against Pakistan over Kashmir?’ Tanmay won the debate for speaking how war would be a bad idea but lost respect of his school mates.
While narrating the story on twitter, Tanmay tells when he was a weird 8th grader who felt people dying for no reason isn’t the solution. Tanmay went up first to debate and put his arguments, but the audience was won by his opponent debater who started off the debate with an anecdote. Tanmay recollects how by the time his opponent finished speaking for the motion, everybody in the audience joined him chanting, “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” giving a consent to violence against Pakistan.
Tanmay won the debate that day, but none of the students thought he deserved to for opposing in debate over nuking Pakistan.
The terror attack at Uri has sparked up the popular debate of India and Pakistan’s position over Kashmir issue. The attack had 17 soldiers martyred while the death toll increased after one more soldier succumbed to injuries while he was being treated at an army hospital in New Delhi.
