    New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistan’s Minister for Science and Technology has stirred a hornets’ nest by making an off-colour remark on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to mock him on his 69th birthday.

    As messages were pouring in from around the world to wish the Indian leader a happy birthday, a tweet from Pakistan Minister Fawad Chaudhry, mocking Modi by saying “Today reminds us the importance of contraceptives” has outraged the Indian Twitterati.

    There has been an avalanche of responses within hours of posting of the minister comment.

    The minister, who earlier came under fire for his sexist tweet, this time too raked up huge furore on social media, with people criticising him as “disgusting” and an “embarrassment to Pakistan”.

    Indian twitterati bashed Chaudhry for trolling Modi.

    Another likened him to a stand-up comedian and asked that his account be deactivated.

    Others trolled him with hilarious memes and jokes.

    Pakistani twitterati also asked Chaudhry to respect the dignity of his position and urged him to refrain from making such shallow statements.

    Meanwhile, many eminent personalities and political leaders are wishing Prime Minister Modi wellon his birthday. He visited his home state Gujarat to celebrate the special day and sought his mother’s blessing.
