Read: Dear New York Times, India has chosen Modi 2.0, deal with it

The disrespectful image that undermines a sovereign nation’s dignity and symbols has been drawing a lot of ire from social media users.

Written by one Gideon Rachman, the said article criticises the Modi government over decisions of the Article 370 abrogation, Assam NRC and such and calls it anti-Muslim. However, it neglects to mention the issue of illegal immigration and Islamic terrorism.

Interestingly, it also quotes constant fear-mongers likes Amartya Sen and Pratap Bhanu Mehta to validate the points. The author of the article calls US President Donald Trump and PM Narendra Modi as ‘ideological soulmates’ and tries to peddle the colonial narrative that the ‘West’ somehow should get to decide who should rule India.

Though many social media users also seem to be mistaking the publication as a part of the Times of India group, even for a foreign publication, such blatant disrespect for a sovereign nation’s national flag has alarmed many Indians.
