Recent Pakistani Ad For The Match Against India Mocked Abhinandan’s Capture

India vs Pakistan World Cup 2019 match is at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester on June 16. Broadcaster advertisements for matches between India and Pakistan have always bordered on the xenophobic, but the latest advert released in Pakistan to build up hype for the World Cup clash between the two neighbors on June 16 has stooped to a new low.

Mimicking the video released of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman by Pakistani military after he was captured a day after the Balakot airstrike, the ad by Pakistan’s Jazz TV shows a model made to look like the IAF officer with his trademark mustache in a Blue Jersey answering questions on camera.

In the video, we see a model wearing a blue jersey and holding a cup mimicking Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman when he was captured by Pakistani military after the Balakot airstrike. In the ad by Pakistan’s Jazz TV the model is answering questions.

A voice in the background is heard questioning the impersonator of Abhinandan as who are the players in India in the match against Pakistan on Sunday. He then says, “I am not supposed to tell you this”. He was then asked, “How is the tea?” to which the impersonator says, “Tea is really fantastic”. The interrogator then asks him to leave and says, “Achha chalo, you can leave.” As he was about to leave, the interrogator stops him, “Ek second ruko! Cup kahan leke ja raho ho?”

Watch the video:

This act has exasperated the Indians and they took to Twitter handle to slam the ad.

Abhinandan had repelled all attempts by Pakistani interrogators, who tried to extract crucial information on Indian troop deployment, sensitive logistics, and high-security radio frequencies after capturing him, according to the debriefing report after his return to India.

He was captured on February 27 as he averted Pakistani F16 jets’ intrusion into the Indian air space as they tried to target Indian military installations in the Rajouri sector of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and had remained in Pakistani military’s custody for 60 hours. He was eventually released as a “goodwill gesture” by the Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
