MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is being called out for his remarks at a speech in India,  supposedly promising visitors and investors  42 virgins.

The remarks were in obvious reference to a belief that has been floated that martyrs will be rewarded with virgins in Paradise.

But the criticism is much ado about nothing.

Duterte didn’t even get the number right. It’s 72, not 42 virgins.

Where did the 30 go?
