Pakistan pokes fun at PM Modi over Bihar defeat

Pakistan,November 10: Pakistani fundamentalists and liberals have both cheered Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's election defeat in Bihar, though for very different reasons, 

PM Modi has emerged as possibly the "most hated" Indian leader in Pakistan to date.

Islamists here see him in a negative light due to his image as a Hindu revivalist. 

Pakistani liberals, on the other hand, dislike him because they feel his nationalist rhetoric only helps strengthen the fundamentalist lobby in the country.

Therefore, both camps saw plenty of reason to celebrate Mr Modi's election loss in Bihar.

Pakistan's most reputed newspaper, Dawn, in a front-page headline noted that "Bihar Steals Modi's Crackers" a reference to BJP president Amit Shah's pre-election warning to voters that "if BJP loses in Bihar, crackers will go off in Pakistan".
