In an amusing development, Pakistan set itself up for being trolled on social media after it attempted to respond to India releasing weather forecast for Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).

Radio Pakistan the national public broadcaster for radio in Pakistan put out a tweet reporting the weather in Ladakh, reports ANI.

The move came in the backdrop of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) listing the territories illegally occupied by Pakistan in its weather reports, like Gilgit-Baltistan and Muzaffarabad, a step seen as political message to Pakistan.

The Radio Pakistan responded, albeit with a major goof-up.

It’s tweet read: "In #Ladakh, maximum temperature is -4 degree centigrade and minimum temperature is -1 degree centigrade".

Twitter users were quick to point mix-up of the words maximum and minimum by Radio Pakistan's Twitter handle.

One user said, “It's high time for you to engage yourself in Education and schooling rather than militancy. See your officials don't even understand what's Max and what's Low.”

Another commented, "Wrong.. max should be -1 and minimum should be -4."

"Ye tweet padh ke Pakistan ki maximum aukat aur minimum IQ pata chal gayi..(After reading the tweet one gets to know Pakistan's maximum status and minimum IQ)," read another tweet.

Another remarked, “This is what happens when you divert all the money to terrorism from education.”
