Following criticism of India’s anti-satellite missies, Modi asks ‘desh virodhi’ NASA to go to Pakistan
(Disclaimer: this is a work of fiction. Learn to take a joke; you’ll live longer.)
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked the head of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Jim Bridenstine to either appreciate the Indian anti-satellite weapon or ‘go to Pakistan’.
Modi’s comments come after Bridenstine had remarked that India’s recent test of an anti-satellite weapon created debris that could threaten the International Space Station.
“O desh virodhi! O aatankvaad ke mitr! O NASA! Mend your ways or go to Pakistan – why don’t you?” said Modi on NaMo TV.
“There are soldiers sacrificing their lives on the border, fighting the enemy and fighting against terrorism. Your comments are anti-national. You’re not only desh virodhi but also dharam virodhi!” he added.
The Indian PM further reveal that NASA was a Pakistan funded organisation that sponsors terrorism in India.
“Pakistan-backed NASA wants to damage India, but Modi ji won’t let it happen. Kyunke main bhi chowkidar – wah Modi ji wah!” he said.
Responding to Modi’s comments, Bridenstine said NASA has a long way to go before it can think about going to Pakistan.
“They are running cars and airplanes on water. We have a long way to go before we can even attempt to do something like that,” he said.
