Three days after BJP rode to victory with a massive win in Lok Sabha 2019 elections, Narendra Modi was appointed the Prime Minister. After which the PM even gave a speech to the newly appointed members at the Parliament Central Hall Saturday evening.
While many points from his speech yesterday evening became the highlights of the newly formed government, a Pakistani channel however chose to stick to one particular word that Modi uttered – Abhinandan.
Dear @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL, Hindi word 'Abhinandan' means congratulations or to greet. So 'Abhinandan' always won't mean Wing Commander Abhinandan.
If nothing else, look at the context of Modi's speech. Sensationalise karne k liyay bhi aqal chaiye.. ??♀️pic.twitter.com/pgwcpOucla

Apparently during his speech Modi had uttered the word ‘abhinandan’ by which he meant praise and acclamation for his party supporters and workers. But a Pakistan news channel thought Modi was mentioning Wing Commander Abhinandan in his speech.
The video was shared online by a Twitter user with the caption, “Pakistani Media Thinks PM Modi mentioning ‘Abhinandan’ in his speech is actually Wing Commander Abhinandan/ Seems like Pakistan has still not forgotten Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.”

After which things obviously took a hilarious turn and now the video of the channel has been going viral online. And Twitter did not hold back even a second before trolling them savagely for the gaffe. Here’s what Twitterati is saying about the hilarious stint that the Pakistani channel pulled off:
