Pakistanis Are Defending Imran Khan After An Indian Publication Said He's Worse Than Modi

By Owais Bin Asad | 26 Dec, 2018

Politics is one topic that we all love to dive into. Everyone considers themselves an expert in the field and won’t hesitate from blessing you with their opinions. We also love criticizing our politicians for their actions. But something interesting happened when an Indian writer Jyoti Malhotra said that Modi is a better PM than Imran Khan because of how he wished Christmas.

 

Indian publication ‘The Print’ attracted the wrath of Pakistanis after an article by them compared Imran Khan unfavorably to Narendra Modi

In his tweet, the founder of the publication, Shekhar Gupta, points out the comparison that was drawn between Imran Khan and Modi  was based on how they wished their people a merry Christmas.

The writer pointed out that Imran Khan only wished Christmas to the Christian community of Pakistan whereas Modi wished everyone regardless of their religious beliefs.

 

So here are the tweets that the comparison was based on

Here is what PM Imran Khan said:

And here’s what Modi sahab said:

 

I mean, different words were used, yes. But, does it really matter that much? Is is that big of a deal? The twitter army was quick to respond.

People politically opposed to Imran Khan were defending him against the comparison for not only being ridiculous but also because Imran Khan has never been personally involved in oppression of minorities, yet, unlike Prime Minister Modi who has been accused of Muslim genocide in his home state of Gujarat.

 

Even Indian journalist saw the ridiculousness of the comparison

 

Other people came to his defense as well and pointed out the fact that Modi wishes Eid greetings only after he was criticized for not doing so

 

Obama was also brought into the comparison:

 

The comparison does feel like a very desperate one, to be very honest. The only purpose it serves is to spew hatred among people on both sides of the border for each other and gives them another reason to argue.

I mean if we’re going to compare Prime Ministers (which I don’t see why one should do) of two separate countries, how is that going to help the already crippling economies of both countries? How is that going to solve any problems? If anything, this would cause a heated discussion between people from both countries ending in time being wasted. Honestly, I can not think of one good purpose that this comparison serves.

What do you think of the comparison? Do you think a minor difference of words in a tweet is a viable basis for such an argument? Let us know in the comments.
