Social Media Mocks Boris Johnson For Confusing Indian Farmers’ Protest with Pakistan

The British leader is in hot water for making irrelevant remarks

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s recent confusing comments about Indian Farmers’ protest revealed the leader’s lack of knowledge on the issue.

He said, “Our view is that of course, we have serious concerns about what is happening between India and Pakistan. 

He continued, “But these are pre-eminently matters between those two governments to settle, and I know he appreciates this point.”

Johnson was responding to Sikh Labour MP Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi, who highlighted the “massive” problem in India.

Singh asked the British Prime Minister, “will the prime minister convey to the Indian prime minister our heartfelt anxieties and our hopes for a speedy resolution to the current deadlock, and does he agree that everyone has a fundamental right to peaceful protest?”

Johnson appeared “absolutely clueless” over Delhi’s protest and mistook the matter with the continuing conflict between India and Pakistan. 

After his comments, Johnson met with mocking remarks on social media on Wednesday. Afzal Khan, a British member of Parliament, tweeted, “The PM responded with a rehearsed  & unrelated answer about India & Pakistan”.

He added, “The issue has nothing to do with India and Pakistan. Incredible,”

Zahra Sultana, another Member Parliament, remarked in her tweet, “Is it too much to ask for a PM who knows the difference between Kashmir and Punjab?”

The protests are taking place in India since Modi’s government passed three Farm Laws that will advantage large organizations and undermine thousands of farmers’ livelihoods.
