Former Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit, on Monday retweeted a photo of a filmstar while passing it off as a Kashmiri man who lost his vision due to pellet injury.

Pakistan-based journalist Naila Inayat tweeted screenshots of the post saying, "Former Pakistani High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit, mistakes Johnny Sins for a Kashmiri man who lost vision from pellet. Unreal times these, really."

The screenshot shows Basit has retweeted a tweet with a picture and a message, "Yousuf from Ananthnag,,,lost vision due from pellet...pls raise your voice."

However, he later deleted the tweet.

This is not the first time Pakistani officials have indulged in such goof-ups.

Last week, Pakistan Senator Rehman Malik, intended to tag United Nations in a tweet on Kashmir, but ending up tagging UNO, a card game instead.
