‘Fighting the same enemy’: Wasim Akram has a message for India

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram tweeted a message for India, saying that Pakistan is not India’s enemy and both countries are fighting against the same enemy.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

India on Wednesday said that Pakistan has committed “unprovoked act of aggression” by targeting Indian military posts with its air force and sought immediate and safe return of an Indian pilot in its custody.

India issued a demarche to Pakistan objecting to “vulgar display” of an injured person of the Indian Air Force in violation of all norms and said Islamabad must ensure that no harm comes to the Indian defence personnel in its custody.

It also gave Pakistan a dossier with specific details of Jaish-e-Mohammed’s complicity in Pulwama millitant attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed earlier this month.

“India also strongly objected to Pakistan’s vulgar display of an injured personnel of the Indian Air Force in violation of all norms of International Humanitarian Law and the Geneva Convention. It was made clear that Pakistan would be well advised to ensure that no harm comes to the Indian defence personnel in its custody.

“India also expects his immediate and safe return,” the statement said.

India had earlier in the day accused Pakistan of targeting the country’s military installations in response to its counter-militancy action a day earlier and said an Indian MiG-21 Bison pilot was “missing in action”.

It said that Pakistan has used its air force to target military installations on the Indian side and in the aerial engagement, one PAF fighter aircraft was shot down but a MiG-21 aircraft was also lost.
