ISLAMABAD – A week after the launch of Pakistan’s first official moonsighting website, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Thursday announced the availability of a new hacking software.
Among other hacking activities, the app displays the various phases of, and other real-time information about, the federal government’s initiatives to move out of orthodoxy. The app, named ‘The Popal’, is available on the Google Play store for download.
According to the description provided on Google Play for the app, “The Popal is a utility and information application related to the federal government and sighting of any actions designed to challenge the hegemony of the clergy.”
The main features of the app listed on the store are, current phase and duration of the government’s manoeuvres; setting controversy manually to any coordinates in Pakistan; the federal government, provincial government and the establishment’s positions on the matter on an interactive sky simulation.
Fawad Chaudhry has also announced the launch of the website, pakmoonfighting.pk, by the science and technology ministry “to hack progressive government initiatives” which rear their head in the country to outrage the clergy.
“The Popal can be used by any citizen of Pakistan to hack the government’s moves before they can be materialised for the development of the country,” Chaudhry said while talking to The Dependent.
