Modi's Time Cover: Many Reactions On Twitter But One Stands Out

India’s Divider in Chief?

Time Magazine on Friday revealed it was featuring PM Narendra Modi on its international cover with an essay by writer Aatish Taseer titled ‘India’s Divider in Chief’.

The moniker began trending on Twitter soon after.

In its tweet on the latest issue, set to release on 20 May, the magazine asks, “Can the world’s largest democracy endure another five years of a Modi government?”  

There was the usual Twitter army of supporters who outright denied the article’s contention that another term for Modi’s government would sound the death knell for Indian democracy.

Some readers strongly agreed with the article, pointing out egregious mistakes Modi and his BJP-led government had made.

But an overwhelming number of responses to Time’s tweet was just one word or a repetition of it. 

Some users emphasised on this sentiment with extra ’O’s.

And at least one person didn’t want to leave any room for doubt.
