    It’s an absolute insult to india and its agencies. No one in the world cares for india because of its corrupt annd incompetent govt. Vishwaguru has humiliated india beyond repair. First it was BBC exposing Modi’s crimes in 2002, then Adani’s fraud with Modi’s support, then insult to our flag and vandalizing temples all over the world. Now our public and independent agencies have lost thier credibility internationally because of thier corrupt and biased activities.
