The headline which insults not only Prime Minister Modi but even his mother attracted widespread condemnation by Indians across the board.
Prostitutes are respected across globe. They earn their livelihood. Pakistan is going to dogs in comparison. Pakistan is at the mercy of their terror Army. https://t.co/MfkiII5HZC

This is why the discourse is so poisoned in the Indian subcontinent. This kind of poison is spread at the grassroots. This is what the army officer on @BDUTT‘s show spoke terrifyingly about in terms of experiences on the ground across the border. https://t.co/GdGBJIpTDV

While a few of Pakistanis condemned the headline, many appeared to cheer for it as well.

Pakistan has been pretty riled up ever since the Indian Air Force conducted airstrikes within Pakistani territory in response to the Pulwama terror attack. Apart from military misadventures, it appears their media has lost all manners of decency and is only showing its true colours.
