It has recently come into light that the Indian Air Force Wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman who was captured by Pakistan on February 26 was released as Pakistan feared that India was ready to launch an attack on them.
Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Ayaz Sadiq said in the National Assembly that the foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi knew India was ready to attack Pakistan and had begged for Varthaman’s release.
He also claimed Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Army Chief General was shivering and sweating when the foreign ministers told them if they did not release Varthaman, India would launch an attack on Pakistan.
On February 26, the Indian Air Force avenged the Pulwama attack in which 40 CRPF officers had died by bombing the Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist camps in Balakot, Pakistan.
In the attack, the F-16 fighter was shot, the fighter had ejected the plane in Pakistan and was captured on February 27. But was later released on March 1.
With regards to the admission, BJP Chief JP Nadda bashed the Congress when they had questioned the Balakot attack and all the decision taken by India against Pakistan sponsored terrorism. He also said that the Indian opposition will now believe in the strength and bravery of the soldiers of the ‘most trusted nation’.
The Republic Media Network also confronted Fayyaz ul Hassan, Pakistan Minister who had not supported the government on the Pulwama attack. When the Information and Culture Minister of Punjab responded to the Indian media saying that they should be grateful to Pakistan for releasing Varthaman, it was a favour on India.’
While India confronted Pakistan and questioned, ‘if they considered Pulwama attack, killing 40 jawans a success? It is not courage but the insult of Pakistan in front of the world.’ The Republic media taunted Pakistan by mentioning their internal state conflicts, quoting, ‘you will run with your pantaloons.’
The current status reminds me of school fights as both the nations are indulged in blaming and confronting each other when they have more pressing matters in hand such as combatting Covid-19 pandemic.
It is now confirmed that Pakistan felt threatened by India as the foreign minister said in the meeting, ‘for god’s sake, let him go back now, India is attacking Pakistan at 9 pm in the night.’
While the PML-N leader underestimated India saying that they were not planning to attack but was a tactic to get Varthaman released.
In the National assembly of Pakistan, Fawad Chaudhary, Science and Technology Minister admitted the hand of Pakistan in the Pulwama attack which killed 40 CRPF officers.
