A nation that was once proud of Imran Khan, has today made Imran Khan proud of them.
In February 2019, Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s plane was shot down in a fight over Azad Jammu Kashmir, during an aerial battle which brought nuclear-armed India and Pakistan to the brink of a new war.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Pakistani nation displayed “maturity and unity” while dealing with the crisis between Pakistan and India in the wake of Pulwama suicide attack in Occupied Kashmir last year.
“I am speaking as a Pakistani not as the prime minister that I was proud to see that how Pakistani nation dealt with crisis during the standoff with India,” he said while addressing a ceremony titled ‘Pakistan’s Responsible and Resolute Response to Indian Aggression of 26th February 2019’ in Islamabad.
He also appreciated the armed forces, political parties and media for showing unity during the military stand-off with India in February last year.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi addressed the ceremony held at the anniversary of the event, where Prime Minister Imran Khan was the chief guest.
“My first message to our eastern neighbour is that do not think of any ill-considered misadventure, because if you do, we will respond and respond immediately, as it is our right to self-defence,” he said while lauding the PAF.
Pakistan celebrates its defense against the neighboring rivals. And the Premier is proud of its nation more than ever.
