Congress mouthpiece, National Herald, confused Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat for another Pakistani TV anchor who had recently confused Apple Inc with the fruit. Confused? Let us break it down for you.
Congress mouthpiece National Herald published a report about the Pakistani journalist who confused the tech giant Apple Inc for the fruit apple during a conversation.
The video became viral when Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat shared the same. However, National Herald while publishing the same said that the journalist who was confused over apples was Inayat. While in reality, she was merely sharing the video.
To their credit, National Herald did manage to get it right that it was Naila herself who had posted the video on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Naila Inayat tweeted that she definitely wasn’t the one who confused Apple Inc for the fruit.

In the video that went viral yesterday, the TV anchor could be seen talking to a panellist about Apple Inc. She embarrassed herself by confusing it with the fruit before the panellist could correct her.
Recently, Pakistan made itself an object of ridicule, when, during the live streaming of the press conference of the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the cat filter got accidentally turned on, making the faces of the people look like cats.
Earlier another video went viral where a Pakistan news channel picked up the word ‘abhinandan’ from a speech delivered by PM Modi and came to the conclusion that he was talking about Wing Commander Abhinandan.
The Congress mouthpiece National Herald has its own controversial past. Both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are facing criminal proceedings in the income tax case relating to National Herald.
