New Delhi: Pakistani media goofed up again. This time they got the essence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech completely wrong, which he was delivering after getting a huge mandate in Lok Sabha Elections 2019.
Pakistani channel thought that PM Modi was remembering Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman in his speech, which was not the case and the channel became a laughing stock on the internet.
The clip that has gone viral shows a speech by the PM Modi to the newly appointed members at the Parliament Central Hall on Saturday evening. During the speech, Modi praised the party workers and congratulated them for their hard work and used the word ‘Abhinandan’ for acclamation.
Pakistani News Channels. Hahahahaha. Watch. 😂pic.twitter.com/A2DkUWu2d3— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) May 25, 2019
However, the clip of ARY news that has gone viral on social media shows the anchor of the channel saying that Prime Minister Modi in his speech is remembering wing commander Abhinandan who was caught and released by Pakistani forces.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was among the global leaders who congratulated Modi for registering mammoth victory during Lok Sabha elections. Even Pakistani media reported about Indian election extensively. Still, some channels continue to mess up their coverage and gave a moment of laughter. The less than a minute-long clip has left the Twitterati into splits.
Here’s is how people are reacting to the video.
Dear Braindead Pakistan Media,— Sir Jadeja fan (@SirJadeja) May 25, 2019
'Abhinandan' doesn't necessarily mean Wing Commander Abhinandan, it's a Hindi word that means "Congratulations". 🤣😂🤣 pic.twitter.com/qVxUgGuc6M
PM @narendramodi modi congratulated to BJP Karyakarta by saying "Koti Koti Abhinandan" but Paki media @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL thinks he had mentioned Wing Commander Abhinandan. Dear Pakistan, every Abhinandan in India is not Wing Comm Abhinandan.🤓 pic.twitter.com/TCs6jpOkiu— Mithilesh Pandey 🇮🇳 (@mithileshpandey) May 25, 2019
