Pakistan and China launch think tank named 'RANDI', Twitter can't stop laughing

Pakistan and China on Monday announced the launch of a new think tank to focus on the development of of their economic corridor. According to Pakistan Today, the name of said project is, RANDI. Yes, you read that right.

Option 2_00000In case you didn't know, 'randi' is a Hindi slang used to refer to prostitutes.

According to a press statement issued by the Islamabad office of Pakistan China Institute, the newly-formed think tank “Research and Development International (RANDI)”, will have two co-chairpersons; Madame Zhao Baige, former minister and currently member of parliament and vice chairperson of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress, and Senator Mushahid Hussain.

Twitter however had a field day. From Randi mat Kaho (Don't call me prostitute) jokes to 'La Whore'there was no salvaging this situation for Pakistan.  Here's some of the tweets making fun of the name.

Well, that's an unfortunate name for a think tank...
