    "Can we do it without Will Smith?"

    The Indian government is no stranger when it comes to fielding some hella weird questions.

    But on March 15 this year, a man by the name of Ajay Kumar conclusively ended the contest of amazing queries posed to the government, by filing this RTI request:


    The Right To Information (RTI) Act gives Indian citizens the power to ask public authorities any relevant questions.

    This most amazing query asks about the government's preparedness against "aliens or zombies or extra dimensional beings" and if we can do it without Will Smith:

    "I am concerned about the readiness of the government in the event of an invasion by aliens or zombies or extra dimensional beings.

    Can the Ministry of Home Affairs tell me:

    What plans are in place for protecting the public in the event of an invasion by aliens or zombies or extra dimensional beings?

    What are our chances against them?

    What means does the government have at its disposal to defeat them?

    Can we do it without Will Smith?"

    The hilarious form started going viral after it was posted on Twitter by journalist Abhimanyu Ghoshal.

    Dude files RTI request about whether Indian govt. can handle a zombie outbreak. Included my favourite part of reque…

    It was actually first posted by the Facebook page way back in June, but only started getting noticed earlier today.

    And Indians have been left wondering how it took this long for someone to ask the government something so relevant and important.

    Us citizens await a response with bated breath.
