In this editorial, Mr. Sujit Nair addresses the recent Pew research findings concerning India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mr. Nair raises several critical points and expresses his dissent about the research at several stages.

According to the Pew Research Center's survey, approximately 80% of Indians hold a favorable view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Additionally, nearly seven out of ten Indians believe that their country's influence has increased in recent times. This survey was released in anticipation of the G20 Summit and also highlights that India receives generally positive opinions from around the world. A median of 46% of respondents across the globe reported favorable views of India, with 34% having unfavorable views, and 16% holding no specific opinion.

The survey also delves into regional variations, noting that Israel stands out with the highest percentage of respondents (71%) expressing a favorable view of India.

Pew conducted this survey between February 20 and May 22, gathering data from 30,861 adults across 24 countries, including 2,611 respondents from India. The survey aimed to explore global perceptions of Prime Minister Modi, India's international influence, and the attitudes of Indians towards other nations.

One of the key takeaways from the survey is that around 80% of Indians have a favorable view of Prime Minister Modi, with 55% having a ""very favorable"" opinion. This comes during Narendra Modi's second term as Prime Minister, and he is also gearing up for a potential third term in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Notably, only one-fifth of Indians expressed an unfavorable opinion of PM Modi in 2023, according to the Pew survey.

In response to the Pew survey results, the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) asserted that Prime Minister Modi's popularity remains unwavering.
