Twitter user was of the view that the dialogues from Ms. Marvel depict the narrative of Indian nationalists, who believe that Pakistan is a creation of British imperialism and that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is to be blamed for the division of the sub-continent as he spread the communal virus.
