British journalist received harsh criticism for asking India to return Rs 24,081 Crore after Chandrayaan 3’s Success

After Chandrayaan-3’s Success, British Journalist asks India to Return Rs 24,081 Crore on X. Journalist was slammed online after asking India to return crores of rupees.

The successful landing of Chandrayaan 3 on the moon on August 23 will go down in history as a historic day for the entire country and will live on in our hearts forever. This adds to the accomplishments of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). This allowed India to become the first nation in history to set foot on the moon’s unexplored surface. The British media doesn’t seem to be overly enthusiastic about our accomplishment, though. A British journalist is seen pleading with India in a viral video to return the Rs 24,081.09 crore the government gave as aid between 2016 and 2021.

The journalist can be heard saying in the video, “I would like to congratulate India for landing on the dark side of the moon. I would also like to invite India to return the Rs 24,081.09 crore of aid money that we sent them between 2016 and 2021. We are also set to give the Rs 597.03 crore next year. But I think the British taxpayer should keep a hold of that. We should not be giving money to countries with a space program as a rule.” With this, he also addressed India’s extreme poverty and the need for government assistance.

The video, however, did not sit well with Indians. Many slammed the journalist.

One of ‘X’ user wrote, “In Global South that’s called being a laughing stock. You can’t enrage no one, buddy! Just return what your British empire looted from India!”.

Other one mentioned, “Remember…. Nothing shames a Brit more than the success of India. They get reminded about “aid” whenever they see India’s successful space program. It’s very revealing how much shame they feel when they see India’s succees (against their own failures and gradual progression into irrelevance). So they need this kind of rhetoric about “aid” to diminish Indian’s pride and happiness.”
