A video that has been doing the rounds on the internet where Pakistan’s former minister of Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry was seen mocking India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission in an old TV debate.
In the video, Chaudhry said, when people can see the moon from here, then why go there? This comment made by the former minister of Pakistan has left the internet hilarious. While the minister has congratulated India and ISRO on the successful launch of Chandrayaan-3 on July 14. But Chaudhry’s old video mocking India has made him a laughingstock now amongst people.
A video that has gone viral on the internet now is from Fawad Chaudhry’s old TV debate where he was asked about ISRO’s new space mission. In a response, the former minister quoted a Hindi phrase, itne papad belne ki zaroorat nahi hai (There is no need to roll so many papads), Chaudhry responded to questions on moon sightings and Chandrayaan-3. He further added if we can see the moon from here, then why do we need to go there?
After the video went viral, several people questioned the intelligence of the minister, who was once holding a prominent position in Pakistan’s ministry. The video received lots of comments from the netizens, criticising the former minister of science and technology.
Chandrayaan-3 is India’s second attempt to land on the surface of the Moon and the third mission part of the Chandrayaan series. Developed at an estimated cost of Rs 615 crore, the mission aims to make India a lunar fairing nation.
The propulsion module successfully separated from the rocket after one hour of lift-off. This would orbit the earth for about 5-6 times in an elliptical cycle with 170 km closest and 36,500 km farthest from the earth moving towards the lunar orbit.
To witness the event live, people can watch the streaming of the launch on ISRO’s official website and YouTube channel.
