NewYork Times terms Pulwama Blast ‘an explosion’, Twitter teaches a lesson

The New York Times has come under fire from Indians after an opinion piece highlighted forthcoming elections in India citing Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) suicide attack on a CRPF convoy that eliminated over 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers as “an explosion”.

“After an explosion in Kashmir and weeks of brinkmanship with Pakistan, many Indians are rallying behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi as elections approach,” the caption read.

Nonetheless, the headline of the story read “In India’s Election Season, a Bombing Interrupts Modi’s Slump”

The original tweets which got a lot of negative reactions were deleted and later another tweet read, “After an explosion in Kashmir and weeks of brinkmanship with Pakistan, many Indians are rallying behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi as elections approach[corrects typo].”

Meanwhile, some Indians took to Twitter to question the double standards of the newspaper.
