Narendra Modi’s goodwill visit to Lahore was both spontaneous and attention-grabbing moment that left reporters in India and Pakistan analyzing the event for hours. Meanwhile, the world media hailed this visit as it saw this as an opportunity to clear the disheveled relationship between the two countries. Modi tweeted that he was going to “drop by” Lahore to visit Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on his way to India from Kabul.
Twitter was buzzing with hilarious jokes and memes on this event with tweets like “Kheer me cheeni kam hone ke kaaran Pakistan par barse Modi ji” and “When bae comes over for your birthday.”
Amidst all this, a Pakistani reporter freaked out and ended up putting the foot in his mouth. This is what he said:
1. “For the first time in history close to 120 people have landed in Pakistan without a visa.”
2. Urged the security agencies, immigration and Parliament to take note of the incident.
3. Pointed out how Indians are “treading the roads of Pakistan without any watch.”
