Modi accidentally tweets condolences about Harare violence

In an error attributed to his hardworking lifestyle, Indian Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi accidentally tweeted condolences about the violence in Haryana--following the conviction of rapist-godman Baba Ram Rahim Insan--to longstanding Zimbabwe dictator, Robert Mugabe. Sticking to his tradition of promptly condemning loss of life, terrorism, and property damage overseas, Mr Modi, an avid tweeter, wrote "We stand with the people of Harare in this hour of need." A puzzled Mr Mugabe tweeted back, clarifying that Zimbabwe had not seen anything beyond its usual dangerous levels of crime, but that he had heard of rampaging mobs in a barbaric northwestern corner of India ruled by cowherds.

After freelance PMO aide, Rahul Kanwal, hastily deleted the tweet, Mr Modi sheepishly admitted that he had slept very late the previous night since he was up till 2 am secretly reading his ministers' emails about the recent Supreme Court judgment on privacy. At last report, Mr Modi was overheard wondering aloud what would happen to Mr Ram Rahim's elegant wardrobe when the latter would commence his jail sentence. Meanwhile, Amit Shah was spotted on the lawns of the prime minister's residence setting fire to BJP invitation cards honoring Mr Rahim for his contributions to the upliftment of Haryanvi women.
