Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Sunday posted a suggestive meme filled with innuendos to mock Yoga while trying to criticise Modi government.
The meme was of popular American animated sitcom series The Simpsons where Marge Simpson is shown posing in a ‘Yoga’ pose on all fours and asking her ‘Yoga’ instructor what pose is this called. Her ‘Yoga’ instructor says it is the ‘Indian taxpayer’ pose. Soon, netizens called out his sexually suggestive meme and lack of class while being critical of government.
Netizens also pointed out how his ‘sense of humour’ is sexually explicit.

I can't believe this is the same man who could have become UN Secretary General…thanks Khangrass for that
and to note, it's awesome to watch him rot from within pic.twitter.com/Fhtvc9liQL
Considering the sexual nature of his tweet, some even suggested a title for his new book.

Perversion: Thy Name is Tharoor
Such is the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of Congress leaders is that they can't even produce a satire without insulting Hinduism. https://t.co/KQb8lItlzV
Tharoor’s tweet depicting moral decay in Congress came just weeks after Swedish protestor Greta Thunberg inadvertently tweeted a ‘toolkit’, a ready reckoner on how to participate in ‘farmer protest’ in India against the new farm laws. The toolkit revealed a global conspiracy to defame India. One of the points was to defame ‘Yoga’ and ‘Chai’ on international platforms.
Chai was seen as a reference to humble beginnings of PM Modi who used to sell tea at railway station during his younger days. Soon after coming to power, PM Modi proposed International Yoga Day during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). He had said how Yoga is an invaluable gift of India to the world. Since 2015, the International Yoga Day is celebrated annually on 21st June. The Greta Thunberg toolkit, which was reportedly created and shared widely by Bengaluru-based ‘activist’ Disha Ravi and a lawyer Nikita Jacob for pro-Khalistan organisation Poetic Justice Foundation spoke about defaming Yoga and Chai on international platforms.
