Pakistan is often held responsible for almost everything bad that happens in India but all limits were crossed when Indian media again pointed fingers at Pakistan and this time not for any terror attacks but for the heat-wave across North India.
According to Tribune, a video has gone viral in which news presenters are seen laying into Pakistan for sending the heatwave across the border. One host can be heard saying that Pakistan is behind the current heatwave, adding that, “The hot winds in Sindh are sending its ripples across the border.”
This led American comedian Jeremy McLellan making a sarcastic remark on social media saying, “Pakistan is attacking India with hot weather.”

Senior journalist Hamid Mir also could not resist rubbing salt into the wound, saying PM Imran Khan must create good weather in Pakistan before making peace gestures to Narendra Modi.

Temperatures passed 50 degrees Celsius mark in northern India triggering warnings of water shortages and heatstroke. This is not the first occasion when the Indian media has turned itself silly in anti-Pakistan rhetoric as the country’s television news channels spewed up fictitious stories to whip up a jingoistic frenzy to keep the flame of hate burning in the aftermath of Pulwama incident in February.
