Pakistani jet with Indian flag on it, sparks controversy on twitter

Yet another mistake by the government of India came into light when the a video posted on twitter by ministry of culture as a part of Independence Day featured a Pakistani JF-17 jet with the Indian tricolor.

This video was a part of a campaign, celebrating the 70 years of Independence by the government of India.

In the opening frame of the 1 minute video featured a Pakistani jet with the Indian flag. The video was quickly removed by the government when people started pointing out the mistake on twitter. This blunder was made because the Pakistani jet JF-17 looks similar to the Indian made ‘Tejas’. It was later corrected and an updated video was put out.

 It was not the first time when such errors have been made by the government. Sometimes its spelling mistake, tweets for those areas where Internet is blocked, and putting up national flag upside down.
