Army Colonel Makes Insensitive Comment As CDS Bipin Rawat’s Helicopter Crashes

Retired Army Colonel is facing backlash for making an insensitive tweet after the helicopter crash of CDS Bipin Rawat.

An IAF Mi-17V5 helicopter, with CDS Gen Bipin Rawat on board, met with an accident today near Coonoor, Tamil Nadu. Gen Rawat was on his way to the Defence Staff College, which is situated in Wellington. He was also accompanied by his wife and staff members. The defence minister is yet to make an official statement on the accident.

While this tragic incident has sent shockwaves throughout the nation, a retired army colonel is facing backlash for his insensitive tweet. After the incident, Retired Colonel Baljit Bakshi wrote on Twitter, “Karma has its own way of dealing with people.”

#Karma was trending on Twitter as he was joined by many anti-India forces who celebrated the horrifying incident.

Meanwhile, the army Colonel also faced heat from thousands of Indians. A user wrote, “Mind you veterans, especially those who are making a shameful mockery of CDS’s plight. Karma will hit back at you in some way. Retd in your name stands for RETARD. You may dislike CDS Rawat but at this time stand together with your fraternity. Do not let enemies use your words.”

Another Twitter user wrote, “Indeed karma spares no one,people who are laughing at the accident of our army personnels one day will get answer. Your hate for BJP is slowly turning into hate for India.”

Eventually, the retired colonel deleted his tweet and posted an apology. He wrote, “I see that a tweet by me earlier in the day was not taken kindly by many. Though I had no intention of wishing anything bad to anyone, ye, in keeping with the sentiments of people, I deleted the tweet in all sincerity. I apologize if I hurt anyone.”

The apology tweet was also deleted a few minutes later.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Rajnath Singh is monitoring the situation of the accident. He has asked Air Chief Marshal Vivek Ram Chaudhari to reach the crash site.
