Don’t be stumped by reading the headline because that’s the natural shock which came to many in Pakistan. However, part of it became true when former PM of India Manmohan Singh was addressed as the President Of The Islamic Republic Of Pakistan. The credit for that goes to a leading Pakistani economic institute.
Apparently, the Pakistani Institute of Development Economics (PIDE) based in Islamabad is having it annual convocation and as part of that, they planned to invite Mamnoon Hussain to preside the event. But the blunder took place as the official invitation showed the name of Manmohan Singh instead of Mamnoon Hussain.
Though the blunder was discovered, it was too late because the official invitations have already been sent to all the VIPs leaving the recipients red faced with embarrassment. One can imagine the situation of the PIDE officials now. Anyhow, it became an instant for some groups to have a chuckle.
