Pakistan to release IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman on Friday
It seems like all the prayers are heard as Imran Khan, Pakistan Prime Minister made an official statement that they are releasing the IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. Declaring it as a ‘gesture of peace’ in the Pakistan Parliament on Thursday, Imran Khan made a statement to release the captive tomorrow.
The aerial clash between the opponent countries drew the attention of global leaders as they have sent messages to end the fight on a peaceful note. Imran Khan told that he has made attempts to call Prime Minister Narendra Modi to let him know that Pakistan doesn't want to escalate the issue. “We also want to make it clear that this move shouldn’t be taken for granted,” he added. However, India rejected Imran Khan's call yesterday for dialogue and also strongly objected Pakistan's vulgar display of the pilot in videos.
With several countries backing India's aerial strike on Pakistan, it had built up pressure on Pakistan to act against terrorists on its soil. Even Trump reacted on the issue from Vietnam saying: "I think reasonably attractive news from Pakistan and India, they have been going at it and we have been involved and have them stop, we have some reasonably decent news, hopefully, it's going to be coming to an end, this has been going on for a long time, decades and decades.”
Now the statement of the release of the Wing Commander came to the relief of not only to the GoI but also to the citizens who prayed for his safe return.
