On Monday, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated the country's national team for beating arch-rival India in the Kabbadi World Cup, as the Pakistan team lifted their maiden title on Sunday.

While Pakistani nationals rejoiced over Khan’s tweet, Indian nationals were quick to troll him:

But still in world cup history 7-0 😂😂😂— Abhishek Singh (@Abhishe12930805) February 17, 2020
Pakistan’s feat comes after the participation of India's Kabaddi team in the event was deemed “unofficial” by the Indian government.
Federal Sport Minister Kiren Rijiju said: “India did not have any 'role in granting visa' to the Kabaddi players who have travelled to Pakistan for the World Kabaddi Championship”.
India had earlier lifted all six editions of the World Kabbadi Championship defeating Pakistan. Besides India and Pakistan, eight other nations participated in the event.
