Indian politician Urmila Matondkar intensely trolled online for saying the World War II had ended in 1919.
Actor-turned-politician, Urmila heavily trolled by netizens over the slip-up made in her recent speech.
“After the end of the Second World War in 1919, the British knew that unrest was spreading in India and that it could increase after the Second World War was over.
So, they brought in a law commonly known as the Rowlatt Act,” said Matondkar while addressing an event in Pune.
Twitter took no time to get Urmila’s facts straight.
Her video soon went viral and social media was flooded with memes and what not.

Urmila Matondkar also spoke about Mahatma Gandhi and was quoted in the report, “Gandhiji was the leader of the whole world, not of any one country.
According to me, if anyone has followed the Hindu religion most, then it was Gandhiji.
The man who killed Mahatma Gandhi was neither a Muslim nor a Sikh.
He was a Hindu and I have nothing more to tell you about it.”
