Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) bashed India for 50 minutes, exceeding the 15-20-minute time limit that leaders have to follow and Indian media can’t control their frustration.
The Indian media outlets including Times of India, NDTV among others are praising Narendra Modi for speaking for 16 minutes, within the given time limit.
But Modi in his speech failed to mention the situation in occupied Kashmir and the growing tensions with Pakistan.
PM Imran, however, talked about issues including Kashmir, money laundering, Islamophobia, and the damage caused by climate change and it is gaining recognition around the world.
Indian media instead of focusing on the content of the speech is raising a foolish argument and criticising PM Imran on the fact that he exceeded the given time limit.
On the other hand, the international media outlets are criticising Modi for skipping any mention of his government’s crackdown in the Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK). Similarly, Al Jazeera also noted Modi’s silence during his speech regarding the Kashmir issue.
