The original image is that of Prime Minister Modi holding the grandson of one of his party's lawmakers in his office in Parliament House, which went viral on social media, television, and newspapers. Modi himself posted the image on his Instagram page.
It was retweeted by the leader of an influential think-tank affiliated with Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the ideological parent of Prime Minister Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Ashwini Mahajan, chief of Swadeshi Jagaran Manch has commented “Hope it happens”.
After stunning New Delhi with his statement, President Trump has been trolled by Indian Twitterati for his off-the-cuff remarks.

On Monday (22 July), President Trump surprised India by saying that Prime Minister Modi had sought his help in resolving the Kashmir issue with Pakistan, on the sidelines of the G20 Summit held in June in the Japanese city of Osaka.
The issue continues to rock the Indian Parliament for a second day, with opposition parties demanding Prime Minister Modi’s personal clarification on the issue. On behalf of Modi, External Affairs Minister Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar made a statement in both Houses of Parliament on Tuesday (23rd of July), refuting Trump’s comment. He said, “no such request has been made by the Prime Minister to the US President".
