Abhinandan Varthaman’s mannequin displays at PAF museum
KARACHI: The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Museum in Karachi has put on life-sized mannequin of an Indian pilot, Abhinandan, whose plane was shot down over Kashmir earlier this year, invoking the ire of India’s media.
Pakistan Army released a video showing him sipping a hot cup of tea and refusing to answer any questions politely.
“The tea is fantastic,” his remarks about the tea made him a viral sensation at India’s expense.
He was released several days later in a peace gesture from Pakistan aimed at defusing tensions. The statue stands in a gallery named Operation Swift Retort.
Abhinandan’s exhibit at PAF Museum breaks the internet.
Now, no one should complain if, in response, the Indian govt or their army make statues of our 93k soldiers who surrendered to them in 1971.
