The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) released a new song to mark the first anniversary of the downing of Indian jets. Shuja Haider sang the song ‘Allah o Akbar’.

Last year, Pakistan also put on display a statue of an Indian pilot whose plane was shot down on February 27, 2019.

The life-sized statue of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman complete with his signature mustache had been installed in an exhibit at a museum in Karachi run by PAF.


Indian plane was shot down over Azad Jammu Kashmir in February 2019 when an Indian plane entered the Pakistani airspace.


After his capture, the Pakistani military released a video showing him sipping a cup of tea and politely refusing to answer questions. His comment on the tea “the tea is fantastic”

made him a viral sensation on social media.

He was released several days later in a peace gesture from Pakistan intended at defusing tensions.
