Pakistani Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry took a jibe at the failed Indian moon mission, terming the Indian spacecraft as a ‘toy’ and stated that the spacecraft must have landed in Mumbai.
The minister in a series of tweets said and advised the Indian users on the social media and others to sleep instead of waiting for an announcement from the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) about the moon mission.
“Please sleep. The toy landed in Mumbai instead of landing on the moon,” Chaudhry said.
The minister while referring to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated: “Modi g is giving Bhashan on Sattelite 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”
In another tweet, he stated “Awwwww….. Jo kaam ata nai panga nai leitay na….. Dear “Endia”
Meanwhile, Indian Twitter users reacted to his tweets. Later, he responded back by saying that they were abusing him.
He said: “Surprised on Indian trolls reaction, they are abusing me as I was the one who failed their moon mission, bhai hum ne kaha tha 900 crore lagao in nalaiqoon per? Ab sabr kero aur sonah ki koshish kero.”
India lost contact with its unmanned spacecraft just before it was due to land on the Moon on Saturday, in a blow to the country’s ambitious low-cost lunar program.
India had hoped to become just the fourth country after the United States, Russia and China to successfully land on the Moon.
