Twitterati Reminded Derek O’Brien Of His Blunder Of Comparing Modi’s Time Magazine Win To Hitler’s

It is one thing for an Opposition politician to hate Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It is another to let go off one’s common sense when expressing that hatred. And it is exactly the latter which Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien did on Twitter.

On the day when Modi won the readers’ poll for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2016 beating the second placed contenders by a mile, O’Brien posted this on Twitter:

The minister, without a doubt, compared Modi to dictators like Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin, and autocratic Iranian religious figure Ayatollah Khomeini.

Now that’s truly something very unwarranted and degrading for a minister to speak in such manner for the Prime Minister.

What makes his comparison even more insulting is the fact that Mahatma Gandhi too was named Person of the Year in 1930 becoming the first non-American to be named so.

Thanks to the Twitterati, O’Brien was reminded of how silly his attempt was:

 

This man enlightened the former quizmaster that editors of Time Magazine reserve the final decision on whom would be the Person of the Year, which could be a different name.
