Pakistan minister Fawad Hussain Chaudhary is yet again irritating people with his cheap attention-seeking tactics and this time the jibe has come in the wake of Sri Lankan players withdrawal from an upcoming tour with Pakistan.

In a tweet this afternoon he said Sri Lankan players withdrew from the tournament due to India’s pressure claiming that India was threatening to oust Sri Lanka from the Indian Premier League (IPL) if they did not pull out of the tour with Pakistan.

A day ahead 10 Sri Lankan players including Lasith Malinga and Angelo Mathews withdrew from the upcoming Pakistan tour citing security inhibitions.

The fear to play in Pakistan has been mongering among Sri Lankan cricket board and players since the 2009 terrorist attack which left many players injured and perhaps it was also the last time when an international tournament took place in Pakistan.

The Pakistan Cricket Board this morning asserted that it had no problem in whatever team the Sri Lankan Cricket board would send for the upcoming tournament.

Earlier also, the Pakistan minister was in news for his infamous comments against India. When ISRO confirmed that they lost communication with lander Vikram, he began trolling the space agency. His comments irked many people in India as he called India incompetent. But soon enough, people realized that the person talking trash about India was himself the butt of jokes in Pakistan.

He said India would need a Bollywood movie, possibly another 100 crores to succeed in a moon nation as important as Chandrayaan-2.  He has received flak not just from India but Pakistan too. Namira Salim, Pakistan’s first woman astronaut heaped praises on ISRO for taking a giant leap in space missions and making entire South Asia proud.
