This controversial sequence has made many fans furious at Priyanka for agreeing to do the episode which they feel maligns India's image on the international platform, even though the series is entirely fictional. Twitterati also panned the storyline for being "nonsensical" and "unrealistic".
"What the hell was this episode of #Quantico .. they tried to show ‘Indian nationalists’ (their term) trying to blow up Manhattan to frame Pakistan.. I don’t even know what sort of ridiculous narrative was this episode trying to set.. nonsensical stuff," read one of the tweets criticising the show's narrative.

I work in Manhattan. Thousands of Indians work in Manhattan. Plotting a bomb blast in Manhattan is as good as plotting it in New Delhi.#Quantico writers mom dropped him/her on head or Pro-Pakistan/Islamic radical views have entered Hollywood.— Abhishek Vaishampayan (@a_vaishampayan) June 5, 2018

So according to the makers of @priyankachopra starrer #Quantico Hindu terrorists does blasts & blame it on Pakistanis ... @INCIndia must be feeling relaxed as someone finally has taken their 'Hindu terrorism Card" seriously. Our stars really loves Hindustan.— Reian (@ReianSpeaks) June 5, 2018
Never expected from you to do these types of acts in Quantico.The whole nation is being represented by you so don't bring disgrace to us please. @priyankachopra— nilotpal mishra (@nilotpalmishra5) June 5, 2018
Quantico, from ABC Studios and producer Mark Gordon, was a breakout when it debuted in 2015, setting delayed viewing lift records. But with its dense narrative and heavy serialisation, the series started to lose momentum in the second half of its first season and continued to see declines through season 2 and into season 3.
