Mr. Modi had subsequently dismissed the criticism saying “Time magazine is foreign, the writer has also said he comes from a Pakistani political family. That is enough for his credibility.”
“I had expected a reprisal, but not a severing. While the government did not initially reveal their motivations behind this action, they have now stated their reasons for removing my OCI: “concealed the fact that his late father was of Pakistani origin.” But it is hard not to feel, given the timing, that I was being punished for what I had written,” Mr. Taseer wrote in the latest article.
