The game of power was never played by India before. But the silence was misrepresented as our weakness, which was once and alls to be clarified to Pakistan.
Between the game of power in India and Pakistan, Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, taken captive by Pakistan on Wednesday, will be released tomorrow as a “gesture of peace”, Imran Khan declared today, hours after the US called for immediate steps towards de-escalation and President Donald Trump revealed that there would be “reasonably attractive news” from Pakistan and India. The whole issue of cross border Terrorism from Pakistan into India was dragging from ages. However one response back from India on the Pulwama attack, as got other nations to now pounder into the matter.
The IAF pilot Abhinandan was held by the locals of Pakistan after his plane crashed. The local mob, seems to be putting rags on his injured face with hands tied at his back. Post this the Pakistani social Media put forth 2 more videos with the pilot seen stud in a pakistan office under scrutiny though he seemed to be mentioning that he is been treated well, followed by the last video of the pakistani official confirming the well being of this pilot.
In the mids of all this , the news channels all across flashed several videos of Imran khan Vs Modi speech “Yesterday I tried to call (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi to say that we don’t want escalation. Our push for de-escalation doesn’t mean we are afraid,” Imran Khan said, speaking at the country’s parliament.
“We have an Indian pilot. As a peace gesture, we will release him tomorrow,” said the Pakistan Prime Minister.
However, if he really tired to call Mr. Modi or is it just a press release to show the world, is what only Imran and the Pakistani Govt could clarify. There have been several instances of talks in the past with Pakistan, however the terror across border didnt stop, however, was plotted time and again for decades npw. India had ruled out Imran Khan’s call for a dialogue yesterday in a televised statement in which he declared that Pakistan had taken custody of an Indian pilot. There would be “no deal” on the pilot’s release, top officials asserted today.
Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was captured after an aerial combat between Indian and Pakistani fighter planes on Wednesday. Before his capture, the government said, he shot down two Pakistani pilots when he hit an F-16 jet.The government last evening summoned the Pakistani envoy and handed over a demarche demanding the “immediate and safe return” of the pilot. It also strongly objected to Pakistan’s “vulgar display” of the pilot in videos and said Pakistan “would be well advised to ensure that no harm comes to him”.
The whole peacemaking stance of Pakistan seems to be like a pretandance over their weakness to withstand the pressure now build by India. Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Imran Khan was willing to consider the pilot’s release if it led to de-escalation, but added: “Our PM Imran Khan is ready to talk on the phone to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, but is Modi-ji ready?” Following all the back and forth action of overpowering between Indian and Pakistan, this morning, President Trump, addressing a press conference in Hanoi on the sidelines of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, offered hope of de-escalation. “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,” the US President said.The US had called on India and Pakistan to “cease all cross-border military activity” and to take immediate steps to deescalate the situation and return to stability, including through direct communication.
