Mainstream media really know their priority. Channels such as India TV, Times Now, and right-wing website OpIndia, shared a clip of Pakistan’s Parliament. In the clip, you can hear ‘voting voting’ chants in the background. But, Indian Media like always has something else to say about it. They claimed that Pakistani MPs raised ‘Modi Modi’ chants in the house.
After a careful analysis of the clip, we found out that these claims are misleading and false. Pakistan MPs were actually shouting “Voting, voting…” and not “Modi, Modi” as claimed by the media portals.
You can also hear some MPs chanting “मोदी का जो यार है, गद्दार है… गद्दार है” (Translation: Anyone is who is friends with Narendra Modi is a traitor). But, it was only when some MPs referred to him occasionally.

Now have a look at these claims by Indian Media outlets, News anchors, and Bollywood movie director Vivek Agnihotri
Rajat ji, Pakistan MPs are chanting ‘Voting Voting’. Not ‘Modi Modi’. Watch the full video. Khwaja Asif demands voting in the house before Shah Mehmood Qureshi begins speaking. That triggers sloganeering. Speaker says, voting will happen to calm tempers. Please make correction. https://t.co/wafEPAOp6u

A report by Pakistan daily Dawn, dated 27 October, clearly stated that opposition members raised ‘voting voting’ slogans.
After such heights of journalism, we can only say ‘Waah Modiji Waah‘ because that’s what the media wants to hear.
