Wing Commannder Abhinandan sipping tea and spilling tea
Videos circulating a few hours earlier show Pakistani army treating Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan with compassion
His fighter jet was shot down because he entered a Pakistani airfield earlier today.
I wanna put this on record, and I wont change if I go back to my country that I'm very impressed by Pak Army. They are thorough gentlemen and this is what I want to behave my army as. Tea is fantastic and I'm married. Wing Commander #Abhinanden in a new video. #budgam #IAF pic.twitter.com/6B2Y87vB1A

Other videos circulating also show that the Pakistan army saved the Wing Commander from a mob during which he was being attacked.
Indian Pilots life saved by Pakistan Army. Be Grateful that Pakistan has a professional army. Indian army is known to kill innocent Kashmiris, Pakistan Army didn't even strike captured soldier, instead rescued him.

Pak Army is a professional army and it treated even its enemy in better way. Though people of Pakistan got angry as this Indian intruded Pakistan with evil interests

People are even trying to reason with angered Indians who are still hungry for more blood after this aggressive and scary morning
You should be thankful that Pak Army got there on time and saved his life. People on both sides are angry which is fuled by media. He will be treated with respect I am sure. War is easy to start but hard to end. Peace is the only option. War has never solved any problems.

Although a few people are upset and worried about just the fact that this happened in the first place, maybe rightfully so the videos circulating show a completely different story

He’s safe and he’s being treated with respect. And… just like we Pakistani’s love chai, so do they.
What more could the army do to make him feel more comfortable?! The level of respect and dignity they have given this man is noteworthy.

As can be seen in the video, Wing Commander Abhinandan, says “I will not change my statement if I go back to my country.” giving us a full heads up that he’s A-OK.
Hopefully, this will be seen as an act of humanity by the Indian government. But we don’t know for sure how they’ll react – as the two longtime rivals don’t always see eye-to-eye but there’s always hope for better
Thanks for the great treatment. War mongering from both sides should stop. No one benefits from war. I hope a day comes when I can go to Pakistan to see Mohen jo daro and various other beautiful places I have only read about. I heard the food is also very yummy

A commendable job by the Pakistani Army. Take this treatment of Wing Commander Abhinandan as a token of kindness and humanity and make a decision that will return this level of compassion.
