Imagine that once … someone more powerful than you is sharing great friendships with you. Walking hands together on one occasion. You are obsessed with such a compliment to a powerful friend. The next day you saw that powerful friend of yours hugging your ‘enemy’ and saying that we were ‘good friends’.
Maybe you end your relationship with a friend who is friendly with your enemy. But in reality, it is not so easy in politics – a great example of this is now in front of the world.
Trump-Modi and Trump-Imran are now stormed through social media as an example. The war on social media, including Twitter, is about whether India or Pakistan, which country has better relations with US President Donald Trump. The people of India and Pakistan want to join in that war and wound up with each other. That friend is very powerful in retrospect, so it is difficult to get out. Better a war than this.
The two Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan are now in the United States to attend the UN General Assembly.
According to a report online on BBC Online, BJP supporters in India watched the ‘Howdy Modi!’ Show of contentment. The occasion of such a great reception in the United States in honor of a foreign guest is rare. Last Sunday, more than 50,000 people gathered at the event in Texas. Trump and Modi held hands on the same stage. In the presence of Trump, Modi blamed Pakistan for the terrorist attacks on the United States and India.
The rally was seen by the Indians as another victory against Pakistan. Indians share a sarcastic image of Imran Khan’s frustration over the incident. Many also called it India’s ‘another surgical strike’ against Pakistan. In response to this, social media users in Pakistan continue to post complimentary posts of Imran Khan.
The BBC says, but after a day the scene changes. Trump described himself as a ‘friend’ of Pakistan. He also called Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan a great leader. He also says he has many Pakistani friends. Besides, when asked about Modi’s comments against Pakistan, he avoided a direct answer, saying that Iran was, in fact, “the number one terrorist state in the world.”
Needless to say, many Indians were surprised at Trump’s remarks. That image has surfaced in response to them on social media. One of the only questions to ask in this situation is what does Trump’s relationship with the two leaders really mean?
Senior journalist and editor, Shekhar Gupta, told the BBC: “Trump is Trump … he wants trade from India and Pakistan’s help in Afghanistan.” Besides, he certainly wants the Nobel.
He does not address any country or leader. There is a clear position concerning the two countries. I think India or Modi will accept it. ‘
Another Indian journalist Maha Siddiqui tweeted that Trump was clearly telling India and Pakistan separately what they wanted to hear. Trump is now focusing on US forces and interests in Afghanistan.
