Bollywood singer Adnan Sami, born in London to a Pakistani Air Force vet and Naureen, originally from Jammu and Kashmir, has spent major periods of his singing career in India. He was granted Indian citizenship in 2015. Sami often faces flak from Pakistani netizens for his “disloyalty” to the country of his father.
The singer recently shared a video clip to mock Pakistan over its space mission capabilities.
Meanwhile, our so called competitors are hard at work!😂😂pic.twitter.com/rPuMp7EB80— Adnan Sami (@AdnanSamiLive) 7 September 2019
“Meanwhile, our so called competitors are hard at work” Sami captioned the clip which shows a rocket-shaped hot air balloon being launched into the sky reportedly by ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party workers.
The video amused a large section of Indian social media hawks, to hit back their Pakistani counterparts, who teased India’s Lunar Mission, which failed to land on the Moon’s surface.
I found this. I don't know why they don't accept the reality 🤦 pic.twitter.com/k9jG4B1tYt— Surabhi 🇮🇳 (@2902Surabhi) 7 September 2019

This makes me believe that Pakistan is a technologically advanced modern country, which is solely focused on its own development and is not at all dependent on its neighbors for any kind of basic facilities (such as medicines).— Rishikesh kumar (@techieRishikesh) 7 September 2019
Only way Pakistan can reach Moon is to open IMF office on moon. They will find a way to it. #VikramLander— RAVIRATAN (@raviratan95) 8 September 2019
However, Pakistani netizens shot back, pointing that Indian spacecraft’s landing on moon was unsuccessful, in spite of the country spending hugely on the mission.
Much better than wasting 900 crore. The result is the same for both😜😂😂😂— ZeD. (@zohaibghani) 7 September 2019

On Saturday (7 September), hashtag “#IndiaFailed” was trending on twitter with a group of Pakistanis taking a dig at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) losing contact with its moon-lander “Vikram”.
In a series of tweets, Pakistan Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry had mocked India, questioning the Indian government for spending Rs 900 crore ($125 Million) for the mission.
Surprised on Indian trolls reaction, they are abusing me as I was the one who failed their moon mission, bhai hum ne kaha tha 900 crore lagao in nalaiqoon per? Ab sabr kero aur sonah ki koshish kero #IndiaFailed— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) 6 September 2019
Earlier in July, Chaudhry had announced that Pakistan’s space research agency (SUPARCO) would send its "first person to space" in 2022.
