Pakistan’s Minister for Science and technology Fawad Hussain Chaudhary on Tuesday posted a nasty tweet on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 69th birth anniversary after which he was mercilessly trolled by Twitterati.

Taking to Twitter, the controversial minister who is known for making insensitive comments, said: “Today reminds us the importance of contraceptives.” #ModiBirthday.

After this post, Chaudhry was slammed on the micro-blogging site.

One of the users posted, “Today? Just one day in an year? While your tweets and face remind us of the importance of contraceptives 24×7, 365 days in a year”.

“U do have a brain of a kid.. my goodness..and that’s the Minister of Science and Technology of Pakistan,” said another.

Chaudhry is not new to being trolled. Earlier this year, he had claimed that the Hubble Space Telescope was sent into space by the country’s aeronautics and aerospace research agency Suparco, instead of its US counterpart NASA.

“You have really surpassed all your predecessors. Just a few days under your patronage, we realized that Suparco has sent ‘Hubal’ telescope into space. Incredible. Mr PM ImranKhan should send such discoverer into space as a reward..!, a Twitter user had posted.

Ironically, Chaudhry, as Pakistan’s Information Minister, had said on November 2018 that “there are some politicians who are creating chaos on the ground and should be sent to space”.

PM Modi is celebrating his birthday at his home state Gujarat where he visited the site of Gujarat’s Sardar Sarovar Dam on the Narmada river whose water level has reached its highest mark for the first time to celebrate the feat and kick-off “Namami Narmada” festival.
