"Women are not 'consumer products'. This stream of thinking is the worst that has risen in this recent Indo Pak 'war'. Why have we become so sick!" this is how one of the furious cricket fans reacted after seeing a misogynistic Twitter post amidst the escalating tension between the two nuclear-armed countries.
