India has been at the receiving end of jokes after it’s space mission failed. From ministers to the public, everyone in Pakistan has been poking fun and having a laugh at their failure.
Hamza Ali Abbasi, who is in the centre of all things current (and political), also had a few thoughts to share.
Taking to Twitter, the actor remarked that India is “delusional.”
In a successive tweet, he wrote that India wants to “go to the moon just to stroke their false ego.” Ouch!
India’s space mission failed on Saturday after it lost contact with an unmanned spacecraft moments before it was due to make a historic soft landing on the Moon. Blasting off in July, India had hoped to become just the fourth country after the United States, Russia and regional rival China to make a successful Moon landing and the first on the lunar South Pole.
But in the early hours of Saturday India time, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi looked on and millions watched with bated breath nationwide, Vikram, the lander named after the father of India’s space programme, went silent just 2.1 kilometres above the lunar surface.
However, PM Modi comforted the glum scientists and a stunned nation from the lunar programme’s command centre in Bangalore, saying India was “proud.”
