Pakistan’s scientist and former Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ata-ur-Rehman said that criticism of the failure of India’s lunar mission is very wrong.
Pakistan’s minister Fawad Chaudhary and Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asif Gafoor joked about India’s Chandrayaan-2 mission. Now Pakistani astronaut Namira Salim and Pakistani scientist and former Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ata-ur-Rahman, lashed out at the country’s leaders and military spokesperson, saying Islamabad should learn from ISRO.
Pakistan decades behind India
Dr. Ata-ur-Rehman on Twitter gave advice to the taunts on Chandrayaan-2. He said in the tweet that criticism of the ‘failure’ of India’s lunar mission is very wrong. Getting so close to the goal is a huge technological achievement in itself. Pakistan is decades behind them. Instead of celebrating India’s failure, we need to wake up and invest in space science. Wake up Pakistan.
” Critics of India regarding “failure” of moon mission are so wrong. It was still a huge technological achievement to have come so close. Pakistan is decades behind. We need to rise and invest in Space Science instead of rejoicing on the Indian failure. Wake up Pakistan.”
