On the fateful day of February 14, a ghastly terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama which claimed the lives of more than 40 CRPF soldiers shook whole country’s conscience. The responsibility for the deadliest terrorist attack against the security forces in decades was claimed by Pakistan based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad. However, Pakistan, being its usual self, denied having any hand in the terrorist attack and instead played the victim of terrorism.
India, however, took some strong steps to pressurise Pakistan into stopping it from assisting terrorism including withdrawal of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status conferred on Pakistan, hiking customs duty on Pakistani goods exported to India by 200%, vowing to divert water of 3 rivers flowing into Pakistan into the Yamuna. Interestingly, tomato growing farmers have decided not to export tomatoes to Pakistan.
The last step of not exporting tomatoes to Pakistan seems to have irked Pakistanis the most. A journalist from Pakistan who is famous as the ‘Tauba Tauba journalist’ appeared particularly disturbed by this.
Hey @ImranKhanPTI tum bhi tauba tauba tomato tomato karlo ! ?

The journalist even threatened that Pakistan will retaliate India’s decision of banning export of tomatoes with an ‘atom bomb’ attack. His hilarious ‘threats’ have left people in splits. “Tauba Tauba ab vo vakhat a gya hai ke tamatar ka jawab atom bomb se diya jaega“, the journalist said.
Netizens were left in splits at this hilarious outrage over tomatoes.
Tauba tauba.. kya tha ye bhai??? got my full dose of today’s comedy. Can’t stop laughing??

India has increased its efforts to pressurise Pakistan so that it stops assisting terrorism on its land.
