Terrific piece by ⁦@AmyKazmin⁩ on how Modi for 70+% of India is more an article of faith than a political leader to be held to account. “The state withered. but faith didn’t,” Naipaul wrote of Pakistan in 1981. “Failure only led back to the faith.” https://t.co/5prjaw73Ph

"Modi, it is abundantly clear, is not up to the job. A healthy democracy can find the means to countervail executive incompetence. Indian democracy, however, is sick. And it is this sickness that sustains the cult of the prime minister" In @ForeignPolicy https://t.co/ki9EXheoTO

Tomorrow is the birthday of this remarkable man. It breaks the heart that he has, in #China, a foe so all-consuming. https://t.co/4UW4Q6ASGW via @WSJ

I’m spending an extremely pleasurable 4th of July on forward post Long Island. Will keep my eyes peeled for an amphibious invasion along this Line of Anything Goes (LAG).

You care about Mr Modi’s image? .by scripting articles like “Divider in Chief” ..You Mr Taseer? ..YOU Salman Taseer’s Son & a paid Pak agent to foul mouth India internationally..Neither the World nor we give two hoots to you. Try your best to tarnish the image of Indian Army👎👎 https://t.co/mzZTnjqjfO

This is what I mean, @narendramodi. Do you really want a party spokesman as unhinged as this? A man, who under the slightest duress, comes unstuck, vomiting up wild conspiracy theories amid rivers of pakhala bhaat. I will say it again, own him, or sack him. Your choice. https://t.co/iJPiX87Urp

Next time Prime Minister — ⁦@narendramodi⁩ — you’re wondering why you have an appalling image abroad, consider fixing the reality first. ⁦@sambitswaraj⁩ : sack him, or own him. Your choice. https://t.co/HDR8Ewan6R

Mr Taseer this is not glorying the sight ..this is exposing Ur Father’s Country’s Jihad &Terrorism U should know this better because your own father was not spared by terrorism in his(& yours as well) country Fight against Terrorism NOT India Understood? #HumanityOverPakTerror https://t.co/CfJG7gTfVl

Don’t you dare presume to tell me what I should think. Neither your religion, nor the shameful fact that you represent India, can protect you from your venality. You’re a degraded worthless human being who will go down in history as the face of the darkest time in recent memory. https://t.co/7slKH1Z5B7

If a single tweet could capture the utter moral destitution that Modi has wrought in India, this is it. Here is his party spokesman glorying in the sight of a little boy with the body of his dead grandfather, killed in crossfire in Kashmir. https://t.co/pzurkOipud

India’s banning of 59 Chinese apps will cause a global ripple effect. China was banking on their popularity in India to push for business abroad. Shining examples of Chinese tech prowess, they can now expect to be investigated in other countries. https://t.co/DJ3MQuHLmE

Huge. This is basically the equivalent of the US banning curbside check-in after 9/11. https://t.co/SF7CevYuxS
