Islamabad: In a major blunder, Pakistan's permanent representative to the UN Maleeha Lodhi on Monday called  Boris Johnson "Foreign Minister" on Twitter.

"Prime Minister Imran Khan met British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson this morning," Lodhi tweeted as she put out a picture of the meeting.

 

She deleted the tweet after around an hour and put out another picture "Sorry typo in previous tweet. Prime Minister Imran Khan Met British PM this morning".

Netizens seized on the opportunity to mock Pakistan and soon twitter was flooded with reactions:

"Believe it or not"

"Pakistan's low educational standards"

 "Embarassing Pakistan" 

"Reflects your knowledge"

"And she wants Kashmir"

It is not the first time that Lodhi has caused embarrassment to Pakistan. In 2017, Lodhi held up a photograph of a scarred girl at the United Nations, she said she was offering proof of "brutality" in Kashmir. But the photo turned out to be that of a 17-year-old Palestinian girl, taken in Gaza in 2014 by award-winning photographer Heidi Levine. The teenager had been injured by shrapnel in an Israeli attack.

Earlier this month, former Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit did a major goof-up. He retweeted a photo of an adult filmstar while passing it off as a Kashmiri man who lost his vision due to pellet injury.
