Omar Abdullah has slammed Pakistan for the all-too-predictable deceit it perpetrated right at the end, as it released IAF's Wing Commander Abhinandan to India at the Wagah-Attari border, though not before releasing a heavily edited propaganda video bearing 20 clear edits in just 84 seconds.
Taking to Twitter, the former Jammu and Kashmir CM wrote back to a Pakistani author who had tried to paint Pakistan in a good light over the release of the IAF hero:
The nonsensical video bore every dirty-trick that Pakistan has deployed every time it has released videos of Indian Kulbhushan Jadhav, the retired Indian Navy officer it had apprehended from near the Chabahar port in Iran and sentenced to death in a sham trial declaring him an Indian spy.
Wing Commander Abhinandan had fallen into Pakistan's clutches after his MIG-21 Bison shot and brought down a Pak F-16 as the Indian Air Force sent a 24-strong Pakistan Air Force jet-fighter formation packing, foiling the belligerent nation's attempt to attack India in retribution for the precision strike India had conducted on Pakistan's terror factories along the LoC on Tuesday morning.
While announcing the decision to release Wing Commander, Pak PM Imran Khan had attempted to paint a 'good gesture' narrative despite the truth being that he had been left with no option because of the relentless and inexorable pressure screw India had applied on Pakistan across multiple dimensions, demanding the release of its heroic pilot.
