Twitter Hashtags #AbhinandanMyHero #BringBackAbhinandan rank up since his capture by Pakistan.
Whole India wants our brave soldier back as soon as possible. We want no harm to be done to him. The recent photos and videos circulated over social media of the wing commander have brought pain to all of India.
‘’It is unfortunate that instead of fulfilling its international obligation and bilateral commitment to take credible action against terrorist entities and individuals operating from its soil, Pakistan has acted with aggression against India,’’ New Delhi told the Pakistani diplomat.
Unacceptable Vulgar Display Of The Indian Air Force Wing Commander
It was clearly conveyed to him that India reserved the right to take firm and decisive action to protect its national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity against any act of aggression or cross-border terrorism.
The External Affairs Ministry said India also strongly objected to Pakistan’s ‘’vulgar display of injured personnel of the Indian Air Force’’ in violation of all norms of the International Humanitarian Law and the Geneva Convention.
India Has Ensured That No Harm would Be Done To The IAF personnel
It was made clear to the Pakistani side that Islamabad would be well advised to ensure that no harm came to the Indian defence personnel in its custody. India also expected his immediate and safe return.
Deep regret was also expressed to the Pakistani diplomat at the continuing denial by Pakistan’s political and military leadership over the presence of terrorist infrastructure in territories under Pakistan’s control.
A dossier was handed over to Pakistan side with specific details of JeM complicity in Pulwama terror attack and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan.
He was told that India expected Pakistan to take immediate and verifiable action against terrorism emanating from territories under its control.
