–FM Qureshi, Punjab Governor Sarwar made the same mistake
In yet another incident of miscalculation, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that Pakistan has the support of 58 member countries of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) against India’s revoking of Article 370, while the international rights body only has 47 members.
“I commend the 58 countries that joined Pakistan in Human Rights Council on 10 Sept reinforcing demands of int community for India to stop use of force, lift siege, remove other restrictions, respect & protect Kashmiris’ rights & resolve Kashmir dispute through UNSC resolutions,” he tweeted.

“I welcome the EU’s call in the Human Rights Council for a peaceful solution of the Kashmir dispute in line with UNSC resolutions, int law and bilateral agreements,” he said in a follow-up tweet.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar also made the same mistake and said that Pakistan has the support of 58 member countries.
However, Twitter users did not spare the premier over his latest miscalculation and turned his mistake into a source of humor.
Did you add your three Wives and in-laws to the 47 member UNHCR to make it 58?

So out of 47 member countries 58 has supported Pakistan in UNHRC. Every one is a scientist in Pakistan these days. Suddenly @SMQureshiPTI and @ImranKhanPTI invented 11 more countries. Hats off to the leadership of Pakistan.
