NDTV slammed for referring to Wing Commander Abhinandan as the pilot who was captured by Pakistan


Sep 2, 2019

It seems that controversial media house NDTV, which is known for its anti-India fake news propaganda, never misses a chance to propagate scandalous anti-India narrative.

On Monday, NDTV, a part of the left wing media ecosystem, was subjected to severe shaming after it tried to dishonour war hero Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman by referring to him as a ‘captured pilot’.

In a historic event, Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who had piloted a MiG-21 Bison retaliating Pakistan Air Force’s attempt to attack India after India’s airstrike at a terror camp in Pakistan’s Balakot in February, flew a sortie together in a two-seater version of the Russian-origin MiG-21 from Pathankot airbase.

Following his ejection from the downed MiG-21, which is physically very demanding, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was undergoing rehabilitation. As the entire country welcomed Abhinandan Varthaman getting back his flying category after six months, perhaps NDTV could not hide its anguish and seems to have deliberately attempted to discredit Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman by referring to him as ‘captured pilot’ in the same tone and tenor as Pakistan.

The NDTV’s hatred for Indian Armed Forces was soon caught by social media users, who slammed the controversial media house for its insensitive reporting. Few users responded with tweeting the edited image of the NDTV’s tweet with a more appropriate headline.

Some social media users even accused NDTV of being a Pakistani media after it referred to Abhinandan Varthaman as a ‘captured pilot’.

On 27th April, when Pakistan Air Force had attempted to retaliate the Balakot strikes, Abhinandan Varthaman’s MiG-21 Bison was one of the planes scrambled by the IAF to tharst the attack. During a dog fight, Abhinadnan had shot down an F-16 of Pakistan, but he had entered PoK by that time and was shot down by a Pakistani fighter plane. He has been awarded the Vir Chakra on independence day last month.
