Arvind Kejriwal’s demand of providing video proof of surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army has found backers across border. Realizing that this is exactly what they want, Pakistanis have come out in support of Kejriwal.

Yesterday Pakistani mainstream media termed Kejriwal a “hero”, and today was the turn of Pakistani social media. Hordes of Twitter users from Pakistan posted messages on the microblogging site in support of Arvind Kejriwal earlier today. The frequency and magnitude of these messages were so high that the hashtag #PakStandsWithKejriwal was on the top among Twitter trends in Pakistan.

Interestingly, most of these Pakistani Twitter users were supporters of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, who is often called “Kejriwal of Pakistan”, and their messages had rhetoric that resembled those found in messages posted by Indian supporters of Arvind Kejriwal.

Take a look at some of the tweets posted by Pakistanis in support of the Delhi Chief Minister:

Arnab Goswami is often the target of attack by Indian supporters of Arvind Kejriwal, and coincidently he was attacked by Pakistani supporters too.

Arvind Kejriwal himself had claimed that he could be assassinated by Modi government, and the same rhetoric was repeated by the Pakistanis supporting him.

Ink attack was seen as a “proof” of intolerance in India and as truthfulness of Kejriwal

It was funny coming from resident of a country that has seen killings for questioning and for holding different beliefs.

Pakistani Twitter users didn’t fail to raise the Kashmir issue.

Statement by Arvind Kejriwal was used as proof that Indians were liars.

The Pakistani support for Kejriwal was top thing on Pakistani Twitter today.

And a note of thanks from Pakistan to Kejriwal.
