The minister approached the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO), an executive and national space agency of the Government of Pakistan and a bilateral organisation of China National Space Administration, to ensure the full provision of the facility.
He was also trolled for misspelling the name of SUPARCO as ‘SPRACO’, that added fuel to him being shamed on social media.
“Please don’t play game of satellite war.. It would be worst for Pakistan. .. Hahahah,” a Twitter user said.
“Abby its not spraco its SUPARCO,” said another user.
The tweet comes at a time when the minority communities in Pakistan has been poorly facing human rights atrocities, enforced disappearances, fake encounters and extra-judicial killings at the hands of the military establishment of the country.
