New Delhi (Sputnik): Pakistan’s Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry is facing the ire of the twitterati after a seven-year old “sexist” tweet came to light on social media.

Chaudhry was trolled by the twitterati after he took a swipe at India for losing contact with its Chandrayaan-2 lander minutes before it was due to touch down on the surface of the moon.

India and Pakistan’s twitter users have been engaged in a bitter trolling war in recent months, ever since India scrapped the special constitutional status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Indian social media users were able to dig up an old tweet of Chaudhry in which the Pakistani minister claimed that marrying at the right age and having a good wife could help men save up to 40 GB of computer space.

The tweet is being widely shared with some users wondering if the minister has a social media team to monitor his social media output.

Some netizens were so outraged at Chaudhry’s tweet that they questioned his appointment to such an important ministerial role.

Chaudhry is often the target of Indian trolls due to his constant digs at the policies of the Indian government.

Earlier on Saturday (7 September), hashtag “#IndiaFailed” was trending on twitter with a section of Pakistanis taking a dig at the Indian Space Research Organisation for losing contact with its Vikram moon-lander.

Chaudhry jumped on the bandwagon and mocked the $125 million Indian space mission.

Ufff really I missed that great moment #IndiaFailed https://t.co/pxKQQABVuF

A large section of Indian celebrities, journalists and social media users subsequently hit back at Chaudhry over his tweets.
