Congress manages to insult the memory of Pulwama martyrs and make fun of Nehru in one stroke

The Congress party used a photograph of a meeting of National Security Council Meet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and morphed a photograph of Jawaharlal Nehru to look like as if he is peeking through the door while laughing with a funny face.

On a day when an artist received a complaint about a satire morphed image, the official Twitter handle of the Congress party posted a shocking morphed image on Twitter. And by doing so, the Congress party managed to mock the victims of Pulwama terror attacks and India’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru with a single digitally edited image.

The Congress party used a photograph of a meeting of National Security Council Meet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and morphed a photograph of Jawaharlal Nehru to look like as if he is peeking through the door while laughing with a funny face. They used this caption with the image, “that awkward moment when you’re all thinking the same thing & someone says it out loud.”

In the photograph, The ministers belonging to the Cabinet Committee of security and NSA Ajit Doval are seeing having a deep thought, and the Congress party implied that everyone is thinking that Modi government will lose the ongoing parliament elections.

The meeting seen in the photograph took place on 3rd March this year, days after the high military tension between India and Pakistan following the horrific terror attack in Pulwama. The PM, senior ministers and the NSA were discussing a very serious matter when the country was at the brink of a full-blown war with nuclear powered Pakistan, but the Congress party thinks it is a matter of fun. By posting the image, the Congress party has insulted the memories of victims of Pulwama terror attack.

Although Congress wanted to mock BJP, they also ended up mocking their own Jawaharlal Nehru by photoshopping him in the manner that they did. In the edited image, it looks like while the members of the current govt are serious about the matter of governance, Nehru’s image gives a completely opposite impression about him.

More importantly, Congress used Nehru’s image from a photo which many people use to suggest that the former PM was flirting with Edwina Mountbatten, the wife of the last viceroy of British India, while rest of the India was busy fighting for Independence.

That image is often used to mock Jawaharlal Nehru, and Congress party chose to use the digitally colourised version of the same image thinking they are mocking Narendra Modi.

In one swift motion, with one edited picture, Congress not only insulted the martyrs of the dastardly Pulwama terror attack but also mocked former PM Jawaharlal Nehru. To take an image where the country’s government was contemplating how the terror attack mounted by Pakistan must be avenged and how the country must be kept safe from Pakistan sponsored terrorists, is nothing short of irresponsible and insensitive coming from the oldest political party of the country. It only signifies that Congress won’t shy away from using solemn, serious occasions of national importance for their own petty political aims.
