PAK Abhinandan Mock Ad: The man validness a phenomenal resemblance to Abhinandan, repeats the IAF pilot’s viral statement, “I’m sorry, I am not supposed to tell you this” when he is asked to scuttlebutt on sharing his game strategy without winning the toss.
While Abhinandan took the rigorous grinding by the Pakistani armed forces courageously and with a smile on his face, the man in the video looks terrified of the person asking him questions in the World Cup ad.
The ad not only touched upon a sensitive issue like Indo-Pak well-ventilated duel that gave rise to diplomatic tensions between the two countries but moreover had racist overtones.
Wing Commander Abhinandan’s plane was downed when IAF jets foiled a struggle by Pakistan Air Force to target Indian military installations in Jammu and Kashmir on February 27, a day without New Delhi had conducted counter-terror operations in Pakistan’s Balakot. He bailed out of the watercraft but drifted to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir where he was detained by the Pakistan Army. He was set self-ruling as part of the ‘goodwill gesture’ by the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
