However, the video was from 2015 in which IAF veteran Denzil Keelor talked about the 1962 Indo-China war and 1965 Indo-Pakistan war. Days after Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF jawans were killed and India's eventual Balakot airstrike, wing commander Abhinandan was held captive for 60 hours in Pakistan after his aircraft was shot down in an aerial dogfight.

WATCH | MEA Exposes Pak's Fake News Over PM Modi 's Reply To Congratulatory Letter; Says 'Pakistan Has To Take Action Verifiable Against Terrorism Before Talks'

Earlier Pakistan had peddled the lie that Prime Minister Modi is ready to talk with Pakistan PM Imran Khan. The Ministry of External Affairs in India after Pakistani media reports issued a statement clarifying that there can be no talks with terror harbouring against India on the Pakistani soil.  

Briefing the media MEA official spokesperson Raveesh Kumar called out the lies of Pakistan, saying: 

"Our stand is clear. As per diplomatic protocol, PM answered to the congratulatory messages by Pakistan PM. So did the EAM. As far as talks are concerned, India wants a normal and cooperative relation with other countries but it is necessary that an environment away from terror and violence is to be created to facilitate that. I have clarified it before as well that nothing in that letter is regarding talks between the two nations. There is a constant try from the Pakistani side peddle fake news. I will request you all that you should check from the MEA before playing or believing this news. They want to spread fake news."
