Comedy of Errors: Former Pak envoy to India tweets X-rated actor's photo as Kashmiri man, gets trolled
New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: A former High Commissioner of Pakistan to India, Abdul Basit, on Monday added to the list of the comedy of errors by Pakistani officials. Abdul Basit, in an attempt to convince the public that the Kashmiris on the other side of the Line of Control were being shot down by pellet guns, made an embarrassing and hilarious goof-up.
The former High Commissioner, tweeted a picture of popular X-rated film industry actor and Youtuber Johnny Sins, mistaking him to be a victim of pellets in Kashmir.
A Pakistan based journalist Naila Inayat published screenshots of the post from her account and underlined the “Abdul Basit retweeted” in red and remarked, “Former Pakistani high commissioner to India Abdul Basit, mistakes Johnny Sins for a Kashmiri man who lost vision from the pellet. Unreal times these, really.”

Twitterati, of course, did not let go of the opportunity to create memes out of this faux pas.

Ex Pak High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit twitted image of X-rated movie star @JohnnySins & claiming he is Yousuf from Anantnag,#Jammu & #Kashmir who got blind by a pellet injury@abasitpak1 ,like #PakArmy Your bullets are also hitting 2 feet above the actual target.#Pakistan pic.twitter.com/o135iSxWsI— Bisma Nazir (@BismaNazir6) September 3, 2019
The post also asked everyone to “pray for Johnny Sins” and proceeded with the most clichéd forward trope of all time: 1 like = 1 prayer.
The original tweet tagged to ex-envoy and carrying Sins' photo seemingly from an X-rated film was captioned, "Yousuf from Ananthnag...lost vision from pellet... pls raise your voice (sic)."
When @abasitpak1 Tweeted @JohnnySins’s pic today, we had a laugh but missed a crucial point. Kashmir, for even an educated Pakistani, is like blood to a Piranha. Basit did not pause to check. Years of training as a diplomat went out of the window. The Jihadi took over. pic.twitter.com/Koxm0k2CpJ— Major Gaurav Arya (Retd) (@majorgauravarya) September 2, 2019
This comes days after Pakistan senator Rehman Malik, the former Interior Minister of Pakistan in an attempt to bash the Indian government and PM Narendra Modi for the revocation of Articles 370 and 35A tagged Uno, the card game instead of UNO, as in United Nations Organisation on Twitter.
