Don’t be stupid, or OpIndia will do a report on you

Nope, we are not the ones saying it, our well-wishers are. Md Asif Khan mentioned us on Twitter last night. So here we are.

PM Narendra Modi visited Indore yesterday to attend an event by the Dawoodi Bohra community. On the occasion of the ‘Ashara Mubaraka’, PM Modi addressed a huge gathering of the community at the famous Saifee Mosque in Indore. While PM Modi’s interaction and his mention of the long-standing bonhomie with the sect was praised by the media and public widely, some usual elements managed to find faults in it too.

Like this gentleman, who managed to photoshop a skull cap on PM Modi and was caught by alert Twitterati.

PM Modi has been blamed for virtually everything under the sun by secular liberals. In addition to every increasing paisa in fuel prices, the imaginary intolerance level of the nation, the melting glaciers on the north pole and migratory patterns of Siberian birds, it seems the PM is now responsible for seating arrangements finalised by event managers in the country.

After PM Modi shared the images from his interaction with the Dawoodi Bohra community journalist Saba Naqvi reacted to them by objecting to, of all things in the world, the lack of female faces within the captured frame. Because, well, why can a PM of a country not be responsible for how a photographer chooses to focus his camera. Is this Achhe Din?

After Md Asif pointed out that what Saba has claimed is incorrect and women were, in fact, present at the event, JNU ‘scholar’ Shehla Rashid still managed to find an excuse to show her veneration towards the PM.

The fact that women were present at the event was pointed out to Naqvi by many others.

Naqvi, however, was quick to shift the goalpost. From asking the PM about the seating arrangements, her speed of making it into a question posed by her die-hard feminist soul was much more than the escape velocity of Jupiter. Like a true co-liberal friend of Rana Ayub, she even managed to promote her own book in the same tweet.

However, Twitter, in its patriarchal, blind Modi bhakti, did not fail to notice it.

We too have a few burning questions for PM Modi. We would very much like the PM to answer why Jon Snow should not get to ride his own dragon and why the RSS and BJP are imposing Hindutva on NASA astronauts by making Orange colour spacesuits compulsory? The PM must answer.
