India’s moon mission has failed as contact with Chandrayaan-2 was lost moments before its Vikram module was due to touch down at the lunar south pole.

According to details, India’s Space Research Organization (Isro) said it lost contact seconds before the ship was expected to land.

The Chandrayaan-2 approached the Moon as normal until an error occurred about 2.1km (1.3 miles) from the surface, officials said.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi monitored the progress at India’s Space Research Organization and left the headquarters when he was told about the news of communication lost with the spaceship.

The country’s first Moon mission – Chandrayaan-1, in 2008 also remained failed. Whereas, USA, Russia and China have successfully landed on moon.

DG ISPR Asif Ghafoor’s response to India:

DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor took his social media handle to respond to India’s failed moon mission.

He asked if the innocent Kashmiris are behind the failed mission, in his tweet.

Fawad Chaudhry criticizes the failure of India’s mission:

On the other hand, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on twitter, “Modi g is giving speech on Satellite communication as he is actually an astronaut and not politician, Lok Sabha shld ask him QS on wasting 900 crore Rs of a poor nation”

He further added, “Surprised on Indian trolls reaction, they are abusing me as I was the one who failed their moon mission, did we ask to invent 900 crores on them? Have patience now and try to sleep”

Fawad Chaudhry added, “The toy landed in Mumbai instead of Moon, now go to sleep”

Senator Faisal Jawed reminded Indians of their crashed plane in Pulwama Attack and added that they should rather focus on building toilets. In toilet in uk, there are many words which refer to the toilet. ‘Loo’, ‘bathroom‘ and ‘restroom
