PM Modi reacts to Pakistan leader's ‘support’ for Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal: ‘Requires probe’

"Be it Rahul Gandhi or Arvind Kejriwal or Mamata Banerjee -- best wishes to whoever defeats Modi," Chaudhry said.

On an earlier occasion, when Chaudhry endorsed Kejriwal, he got an earful from the Delhi chief minister who asked him to take care of his country instead. “Chaudhary Sahib, I and the people of my country are fully capable of handling our issues. Your tweet is not needed. The situation in Pakistan is very bad right now. You take care of your country," Kejriwal wrote.

The Pakistan leader said he had no fondness for Rahul Gandhi or Arvind Kejriwal and neither his opinion represented that of the Pakistan government. "...but I will support anyone standing out against extremists and #Modi has become a symbol of hatred and extremism Muslims of India are facing extreme hatred due to rise of Hindu Mahasabha, founders of Pak made a promise to stand for rights of Muslims living in India it’s unfortunate Govt of Pak is not playing its role but in whatever capacity I ll speak for Muslim rights in India and one aspect is forces of hatred must be defeated and RSS+BJP nexus of hatred and extremism must be defeated and anyone who defeats them will earn global respect…" Fawad posted amid controversy.
