Hypocrisy: Siddhu trolled for going to Pakistan but no words for Modi’s invite for talks


By Muslim Mirror News 

New Delhi: While Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written to his newly elected Pakistani counterpart Imran Khan, conveying New Delhi’s commitment to pursue “meaningful” and “constructive” engagement with Islamabad, Congress leader and Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, who attended the oath-taking ceremony of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was attacked by BJP for not taking care of national interest.


For attending the ceremony Sidhu was trolled by many netizens in India for being ‘anti national’. “Imran Khan’s oath taking ceremony is very emotional for me. I am lucky to see Imran khan. Mera yaar Dildar Wazir Azam Pakistan.” Siddhu wrote on his twitter account.

Photographs of the former Indian cricketer sitting next to Masood Khan, and videos of him hugging Pakistan’s Chief of Armed Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa went viral on Twitter and other social network in no time, which led to more trolling.

However, there was no similar response to Prime Minister Modi showing willingness for talks with Pakistan.

In a letter to Khan on August 18, the day he was sworn in as Pakistan’s 22nd prime minister, Modi expressed India’s commitment to building good neighbourly relations between the two countries while congratulating him, the sources said.

In Islamabad, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi offered “uninterrupted” dialogue with India to resolve all outstanding issues, saying it is the “only wise course” as the two countries cannot afford any “adventurism”.

On July 30, Modi had telephoned Khan to congratulate him on his party’s victory in the general elections and expressed hope that both countries will work to open a new chapter in bilateral ties.
