Yesterday the entire nation came together for the well being of captured IAF pilot Abhinandan Varthaman. The pilot of Indian Air Force was captured by the Pakistani army.
Although Pakistan released video footage that Abhinandan was doing fine in their custody, yet there were concerns regarding him. On Thursday Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan confirmed that Abhinandan will be handed over to India by Friday.
Some were very happy with the news while others believe it was due to Geneva Conventions. Even Air Vice Marshal RGK Kapoor, assistant chief of Air Staff clarified this as an act according to the Geneva Conventions.

Gony’s tweet shows many people’s displeasure
Almost all the cricketers expressed their views on this matter. Even pacer Manpreet Gony showed his support for Abhinandan through his tweet. However he also added that Pakistan army should swap Abhinandan with Indian news anchors. He further added the army can do whatever they wish with the news anchors.
“Dear Pakistani army, return Wing Commander Abhinandan and take our news anchors, pretty much all of them. Do whatever you want to do with them and more importantly never return them to us
#JaiHind #AbhinandanVartaman,” Manpreet Singh Gony wrote this on twitter.
Here is Gony’s tweet:
This tweet reflected the unhappiness of many Indians regarding the media coverage of the conflict between two nations. Some even believe that the media is boosting their TRP’s through warmongering. As a result the tension is increasing on both the fronts.
The social media lashed out at the media yesterday for revealing Abhinandan’s family. In the video released by Pakistan, Abhinandan has refused to give details about his home. But now the news anchors have reported about his family which can put them in danger.
