Although India has launched its probe successfully on the moon’s South pole with its Chandrayaan 2 mission, it lost the connection right before the landing just 2.1 km above the lunar surface. ISRO, the Indian space organisation, is still struggling to connect with its Vikram lander. Pakistan, on the hand, is not only jealous of the India’s success but also feeling embarassed with its own minimal level of achievements in space science research.
Pakistan’s first manned space mission is scheduled in 2022, which it is planning to re-schedule to as early as by in next couple of months with an evil plan to destroy the Vikram lander before the ISRO gets connection to the lander. Rashid, who is being sent to space, was asked to cut the green wire of the lander and remove the conductor so as to break the functioning of the Vikram lander. Pakistan’s Science and Technology Minister, Ch Fawad, who doesn’t believe in science, said that the plans to reschedule are only because of the convenient atmosphere, hiding the actual reasons. However, citizens of Pakistan, especially the moulvis, are critising this move and asking the government to abandon this mission. They want the government to locate the other half of the moon, as mentioned in the holy Quran, before the current mission that is being planned is undertaken.
The government is now in dilemma whether to proceed with this mission, another reason for the same being lack of sufficient funds in the treasury.
