The appearance of Narendra Modi in the list of top ten criminals on the world`s most authentic search engine, Google, has created agitation amongst the whole of Indian media, particularly Twitter. The hash tag #top10criminals became the most recurrent tag, with over 13’000 tweets in just a few hours.
The Twitter world has flooded with a number of mixed reviews on this newest discovery; Whilst several Indians condemn the inclusion of their Prime Minister into the list with the likes of Osama Bin Laden, serial killer Arial Castro etc , there were others who supported it.
Priyanka Chaturvedi, the spokesperson of The All India Congress Committee, tweeted, much to the surprise of her followers, in the favor of Modi: ‘I may have disagreements and complaints with our Modi but the PM in Google`s #top10criminals search is not acceptable.’
The critics of Modi, however, are not lagging behind. A tweet from Sikandar-E-Azam went as follows: ‘Ban Google. I am waiting for the repeat of what you did in IIT Madras! Hai Dum? (Do you dare?)’
Some in the favor of Modi went as far denying the authenticity of Google. Amidst all the hype, there has been an unsettling silence from the Prime Minister`s office and no statement has been received from Narendra Modi himself.
