Anger over 'forced' video of Indian pilot amid new Kashmir deaths

    New Delhi - A furious backlash erupted in India Saturday over a video of an Indian pilot shot down by Pakistan praising his captors, as deadly tensions simmered between the neighbours with fierce shelling across their Kashmir frontier.

    Media reports said Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman's return to India had been held up because the pilot was forced to make the video before his release.

    Abhinandan, whose MiG fighter was shot down Wednesday as he chased Pakistani jets over disputed Kashmir, crossed at the Wagah frontier late Friday several hours after the scheduled ceremony.

    The pilot's capture had become the centrepiece of hostilities between the arch-rivals since a suicide bombing in Kashmir last month killed 40 Indian paramilitaries.

    In the heavily edited video distributed by the Pakistani military just before his release, he praised the professionalism of the Pakistani army and criticised Indian media for creating war hysteria.

    "The army personnel saved me from the mob. The Pakistani army is very professional and I am impressed by it," he said.

    Omar Abdullah, a former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir state, said the video tainted Pakistan's gesture to return the pilot so quickly.

    "Sadly the image you paint for us is marred terribly by the video he's forced to record just before you sent him back," Abdullah said on Twitter.

    "That high moral ground you had bequeathed to yourselves slipped at the end."

    Indian media slammed the video as "distasteful" and said it breached international norms for prisoners of war.

    "There is no peace without dignity and Pakistan just forgot that basic lesson in violation of Geneva convention," wrote Rajdeep Sardesai, a top editor with the India Today group.

    India's feverish social media also slammed the video, which was tweeted by the Pakistan government but later taken off its official account.

    - 'Reason to boast' -

    Pakistan's foreign ministry has insisted Abhinandan was "treated with dignity and in line with international law".

    Pakistan media praised the government for releasing the pilot. In the Express Tribune, lawyer Shahzaib Khan wrote that Pakistanis "have a reason to boast ... the Prime Minister (Imran Khan) has done Pakistan proud by not engaging in chest thumping or war-mongering for political gain."

    Abhinandan was captured a day after Indian planes bombed what New Delhi said was a militant camp in Pakistan, in retaliation for the Kashmir suicide bombing claimed by a Pakistan-based militant group.

    Violence continued to rage in Kashmir, with both sides firing mortars and artillery over the frontier, killing four civilians on the Indian side and one in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

    At least 12 civilians have been killed on either side of the frontier since Monday.

    "Heavy shelling by Indian army started Friday evening and continued until early Saturday. One teenager has been killed and four wounded in Nakyal sector," Raja Moazzam, a senior official in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, told AFP Saturday.

    Five Indian security personnel were killed Friday in a gunfight after troops laid siege to a house where militants were hiding in Handwara district.

    SO PM Imran Khan himself supervised recording of this confessional video?

    India is one dustbin sitting on the face of the earth where all these unthankful cockroaches are eating Indian brains out. Infect most of it is gone, now the empty skull is being licked.

    off topic but the the recent chitrol of india by pakistan at all fronts has significantly reduced the rate of rapes and gang rapes in india. no such news from indian side in past one week. this is called psychological castration of the whole mob living in india.
    indian women should be thankful to pak and pak armed forces. they have taught some humanity to indians.

    Pakistan captured an Indian pilot after shooting his plane. The guy was returned in 3 days. Did they think even getting a video or two of him for propaganda purposes wasn't going to happen?

    The guy's plane got blown up and he had to eject. A mob attacked him and he was in enemy custody for a few days, how can he not have experienced mental torture in all of this even if Pakistani forces were as hospitable as they could be given the situation?
