Several social media users took it to Twitter and Facebook, sharing their opinion on the tweet.

‘Morally Corrupt’

One user writes, ‘Morally corrupt’ is an understatement. India is rotten to the core. This @ZeeNews headline in which it wishes Pakistan’s death by Corona is just a specimen.

‘Toxic reporting’

Another user writes, ” Toxic reporting at its worst. On one side, PM Modi invited SAARC nation leader to discuss the situation and awareness. On another side, Zee News channel is saying that whole Pakistan will die from Coronavirus.”

‘Shouldn’t cheer deaths’

One user, Shivam Shukla writes, “Cheering for coronavirus outbreak in Pakistan is mockery of humanity.We the fellow humans shouldn’t cheer deaths in other country because first, we are humans and afterward nation comes. @ZeeNews don’t act like a morally corrupt institution.”

Earlier, the channel’s show on the topic ‘Jihad’ came into controversy.
