Hypocrisy — domestic and international

With India’s elections around the halfway mark, there is much to comment on. Pakistani media has been paying attention to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speeches across the country and calling him out on his claims of Muslims as “infiltrators” and the INDIA bloc’s misconstrued stance on wealth distribution.

Express Tribune (May 8) points out the hypocrisy of the Election Commission of India that “sees no problem” when “Instagram — which is headquartered in the US, one of the free speech bastions of the world — has been taking down videos of Modi’s speeches specifically because they violate its rules on hate speech.”
