In yet another buffoonery by Fawad Hussain Chaudhry, the federal minister for Science and Technology in the Government of Pakistan recently announced in a speech that he has asked “SPARCO”-the Pakistani Space agency to check the feasibility of providing Internet services to the residents of Jammu and Kashmir via satellite or any other technology.
“Internet has become a fundamental right nowadays by the world. I have asked SPARCO if we have the technological prowess to provide Internet services to the people of Jammu and Kashmir who are held incommunicado by India for the last 100 days. I have inquired to SPARCO if the Internet services can be extended through satellite or through other means,” Hussain said.

Chaudhry even went ahead to RT tweets that mentioned the Pakistani space agency as ‘SPRACO’.
Soon after the video was uploaded on social media, users started mocking Hussain for his erroneous pronunciation of Pakistani Space agency-SUPARCO(Space and Upper Atmosphere Commission) as SPARCO. He was also reminded of the economic crisis facing Pakistan and the sky-rocketing inflation in the country before venturing to help the residents of Jammu and Kashmir, that too via ‘satellite’.
Mocking about the tomato crunch in Pakistan, one user advised him to explore the possibility of stealing tomatoes from India via satellite.

A mortified Pakistani who could not hide his embarrassment ridiculed Hussain for being a federal minister and yet unaware of the spelling of “SUPARCO”. The Pakistani user said that leaders like Hussain have damaged the narrative of “new Pakistan”.
What a shame this dull mind person is the federal minister of science & technology.This jerk & so called Arasto even don’t know the correct spelling of SUPARCO he mentioned SPRACO.These kind of Crooks badly damaged IK govt & his narrative for new Pakistan.

Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat shared an ‘exclusive’ demo video on how exactly Fawad Chaudhry was providing internet for Kashmiris via ‘satellite’.

Another Twitter user reminded Hussain that India has the capability of ASAT(Anti Satellite Weapons) and is fully capable of destroying enemy satellites lurking around its region.
He should understand concept of this Achievement & Capability ..

A rational Pakistani Twitter user, though it’s an oxymoron, suggested Hussain to instead provide free Internet services to Pakistanis at railway stations, bus stands and shopping centres.
Let’s not talk about Kashmir anymore because we have seen too much talk and too little mitigation. Instead, go and work on providing free broadband to Pakistanis at railway stations, bus stops, airports, IT parks and shopping centres.

This is not the first time Hussain has regaled users on Twitter and those attending his rallies. The low IQ Pakistani minister had fallen for pranks many times. Indian Right Wing meme makers have time and again played pranks on the poor Pakistani minister.
Even in his own country, Fawad Choudhry often becomes the butt of jokes and insults. A fellow parliamentarian had once called him a dog that was tied in his house inside the national assembly.
