Indian Pilot To Be Released Tomorrow | PM Imran Khan’s Peace Gesture Hailed In India

Prime Minister Imran Khan has made a significant, welcoming move by announcing to release IAF pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman tomorrow, 1st March, as a peace gesture.

“As a peace gesture we are releasing the Indian pilot tomorrow” – PM Imran Khan announced in the session.

He made this announcement one day after Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down two IAF (Indian Air Force) fighter jets for violating Pakistani air space and arrested Commander Abhinandan. Even after the move from India’s side, Imran Khan started his address by acknowledging the pain of families of Pulwama victims and again made an offer to talk and cooperate. To further strengthen the peace process and show moral diplomatic superiority, Khan announced to release the captured pilot to further make our stance evident.

We don’t want innocent lives to be lost to this date on both sides of the border. Imran Khan also said that despite the media narrative, Indian people are pro-peace and don’t support the war mongering.

”I want to tell this august house, Pakistan desires peace. Pakistan intends to work for poverty alleviation, investment, and job creation. We do not intend war. In our desire of peace, I announce that tomorrow, and as a first step to open negotiations, Pakistan will be releasing the Indian Air Force officer in our custody” – he said.
