London:What irked the supporters of the saffron party the most a tweet posted from the official Twitter handle of the Malaysian prime minister. It read, “The helplessness of the world in stopping atrocities inflicted on the Rohingyas in Myanmar had reduced the regard for the resolution of the UN. Now, despite UN resolution on Jammu and Kashmir, the country has been invaded and occupied.A hashtag ‘#BoycottMalaysia was trending on Twitter with Malaysians and Indians raging out against each other’s countries following the former country’s critical view on India’s abrogation of Article 370 of its Constitution.
The trend apparently originated in India after angry Indians started replying to Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad’s tweet calling Jammu and Kashmir a country, which has been “invaded and occupied” by India. Mohamad had also raised the issue in United Nation’s General Assembly, where Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan made a simmering speech rife with references to Kashmir and snide attacks on India. The Malaysian prime minister, openly siding with Pakistan, advised India to sort it out with its neighbour.
Indians started outraging about the statement and somebody came up with the clarion call: #BoycottMalasia.A speech by Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly irked a few Indians. In his speech, the Malaysian PM raised the issue of Kashmir along with Turkey and China. His remarks accusing India of “invading and occupying the country” of Jammu and Kashmir have not particularly gone down well for many Indians, who have supported the abrogation of Article 370.In his speech, the Malaysian PM had said, “Now, despite the UN resolution on Jammu and Kashmir, the country has been invaded and occupied”. He further urged India to “work with Pakistan to resolve this problem.
