Pakistan’s Minister of Information and Broadcasting Fawad Hussain just schooled Bollywood’s Preity Zinta.
Not only are Pakistani celebrities calling out Bollywood celebs for promoting war and hate mongering, now our very own Information Minister Chaudhary Fawad joined the club.
How Did This Happen?
It all started when IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan was released by Pakistan and sent back home to India.
Preity Zinta had to tweet about it, and that proved to be her undoing. Not only does she not understand what actually happened with Abhinandan, she just tried to make up her own ‘facts’ in the process.
Here’s what she tweeted:
People in America r shocked dat a 65year old Russian #MIG21 shot down an American made & sold #F16 at the India Pak border.This tells a lot about pilot training.The best plane is the one with the best pilot inside✈️🙏🤗🇮🇳 #WelcomeHomeAbhinandan #RealHero #IndianAirForce #JaiHind pic.twitter.com/F32AhMN2dA

This prompted Pakistani Info Minister Fawad Chaudhary to set the record straight. Stay in school kids otherwise, you won’t understand simple science.
Best thing #Bollywood walas can do is stop poking nose in issues beyond their understanding,majority of them haven’t even finished their School, they lack ken of very basic issues. Wars are too serious a business to be discussed by jokers who became celebrities by stroke of luck https://t.co/ReRKLdLIC7

Pakistani songstress Quratulain Balouch also joined in and asked for evidence (that’s right folks logic demands evidence).
More Pakistanis joined in, proving that they’re not just the more rational bunch but also have a better sense of humor.
@Quratulainb you'll be unable to see the evidence as they have decided not to released their movies in Pakistan…

Where there is common sense, there is a good sense of humor.
If local people can make video of beating Abhinanadan, how it is possible in this age of smartphones that no video of wreckage of F16, while both wreck indian planes videos are on viral

American F-16 Maker is Also Really Shocked at Indian Lies
The part about American F-16 manufacturer Lockheed Martin filing a lawsuit against India was not a joke. The aircraft manufacturer is actually suing India for their lies about a Russian MiG-21 taking down an American F-16.
The biggest basis for this lawsuit is the factually incorrect statement by Indian Foreign Office spokesperson that IAF alleged shoot down Pakistan’s F-16 by with a MiG-21 on February 27, 2019.
The US-based firm affirms that a MiG-21 cannot compete with the avionics excellence of an F-16, and making such claims is not just disrespectful but libel.
The company also said that since all F-16s in Pakistan are accounted for, then obviously the story by India has been ‘concocted for political gains by the incumbent government at the cost of F-16’s reputation globally’.
Another lesson here kids. Don’t lie, even if you are a Bollywood superstar from the yesteryear.
