India-Pakistan crisis hots up as minister mocks Modi’s failed space mission attempt

India’s Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft reportedly lost contact after attempting to land on the Moon. The Chandrayaan-2 craft lost contact with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) just minutes before it was due to land of the Moon.

Following that failed landing attempt, Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry ridiculed India.

Mr Chaudhry tweeted: “Please sleep. The toy landed in Mumbai instead of landing on the Moon.”

In another tweet, Mr Chaudhry suggested that Pakistan should not “waste money” on the mission.

He also added that the Indian Prime Minister should look to address poverty within his country.

Despite the failed space mission, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the ISRO to be “courageous” in the wake of the mission.

He also stated: “There are ups and downs in life, the country is proud of you.”

The Indian Congress also tweeted out over ISRO’s moon mission.

They said: "The nation stands by the entire team of Isro as we wait in these tense times.

“Your hard work and commitment has made our nation proud."

The conflict between the states emerged following a series of skirmishes and airstrikes over the contested region of Kashmir in February.

Amid the airstrike, Indian pilot Abhinandan Varthaman was captured and was taken prisoner before his eventual release on March 1.

Since then, relations between the two countries have remained incredibly tense.
