As Pakistan is set to release IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan today, PM Narendra Modi has said that everyone is proud of him during a rally in Kanyakumari.

PM Modi, while speaking at a rally said, “ Every Indian is proud that the brave Wing Commander Abhinanadan is from Tamil Nadu.”

Mentioning about India’s first woman Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, PM Modi said, “I am proud that India’s first woman Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is from Tamil Nadu.”

Earlier, the IAF Pilot Abhinandan’s fighter jet MiG 21 was shot down during an aerial warfare with Pakistan’s F16 and he landed in the region of Pakistan occupied Kashmir, and later on was apprehended by the Pakistani officials.

Through diplomatic channels and international pressure mounting on Pakistan to act against terrorism, PM Imran Khan yesterday announced in the special session of Parliament that they would be releasing Abhinandan today in a “peaceful gesture” and with a hope that the tension de-escalates between the two neighbouring nations.

India had earlier carried out “pre-emptive non-military” strikes across the LoC and targeted the terror camps of the Jaish-e-Mohammad by dropping almost 1000 kgs of bomb through IAF Mirage 2000.

Now, after intervention of US, United Nations, France, Japan, UK all demanding to ease the tension between India and Pakistan, and asking Islamabad to take immediate action on terror camps and not let their soil become a safe haven for terrorists.
