Stop talking nonsense.....This claim and promotion is as credible as Brij Pal Singh being promoted to Air Marshal after he air surrendered his Gnat to PAF.

So what is the big deal here...Haven't you heard of Pakistan's POW who later rose to ranks of 3-4 star generals or equivalents?

Before his jet was hit, Varthaman downed the F-16 fighter of Pakistan. Wing Commander Varthaman was released on the night of March 1 by Pakistan.

It is the same country where baby doll is a heroine.
Hope so you have gotten the idea of selection for promotion in neighboring country.

I recommend exchanging our 100+- F16s with 50 migs and request Indian army to train ours!

Absolutely fine with me. AFAIK, the officer is in question was captured before formal declaration of war and kept as a PoW for almost 2 years. No reports have ever surfaced of Manekshaw's legs shaking and asking for his return. But it seems this Mehdi chap did not use Air Force as the Chief during the Kargil Conflict to tone down the problems. Whether his time as PoW in India played a role in his decision is anyone's guess.


Well, expecting some comprehension and posting of correct news by India would be too much to ask at a time. If you don't know about details and can't come up with better idea to divert from real topic, you can at-least choose not to speak and instead of making claims; better to ask question to gain some knowledge. However, the way you suddenly changed into a foul mouth while losing your argument proves that correct news or true events are not Indian trait anymore. It should be the last temporary ban and then after, a perma mark will follow to make this place more respectful and friendly.

Give credit where due gents.
All things aside, did he ever posted a false statement after being shot down?
We don't know how much pressure was on him to lie and say that yes he shot down the F16 before going down. Do you not think their unprofessional forces and schizophrenic media wanted a chance to jump around and make more noise if he had uttered any unprofessional statements ?
In my books he remains a professional and a gentleman.
Maybe it was time for his routine promotion.
People in armed forces do get promotions as they become senior, right ?

If you assume or talk about Pakistani Armed Forces personnel in degrading manner, you will be reported and banned.
You should see how servile Indian soldiers are when captured by Kashmiri fighters. So tough against unarmed civilians, but sissies in a real fight, whether it be against a few pissed off Kashmiri teens with guns or the PLA.

Abhinandan was awarded the Shaurya Chakra for his role in the 2019 February air strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan.

The Indian Air Force has promoted war hero Wing Commander Abhinandan to the rank of Group Captain. Abhinandan is credited to have been the only Mig-21 pilot ever to have shot down an F-16.


Abhinandan was awarded the Shaurya Chakra for his role in the 2019 February air strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan.
He shot down the F-16 over Azad Kashmir, but was taken captive by the Pakistan Army after his plane was shot down by enemy forces.

However, he maintained his composure even in captivity, holding his head high.

Abhinandan’s unit 51 Squadron also received a unit citation for its role in thwarting the Pakistan Air Force’s aerial attack on February 27, 2019. India had carried out the strikes in response to a Jaish-e-Mohammed attack on a CRPF convoy.

Balakot air-strike hero Abhinandan promoted as Group Captain - India News (indiatoday.in)

is this news reporting for real!! When you want to be biased and providing a propaganda value, then i suppose sky is the limit for the lies and exaggeration.

"Abhinandan was awarded the Shaurya Chakra for his role in the 2019 February air strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan."

He actually was not part of the Air Strikes inside Pakistan. How he is awarded a Chakra for something he didn't even involved in!!

"Abhinandan’s unit 51 Squadron also received a unit citation for its role in thwarting the Pakistan Air Force’s aerial attack on February 27, 2019."

He never thwarted any airstrikes. Airstrikes by PAF went ahead, they targeted the empty spaces outside the lock targets and returned back. Abhi only try to stop the returning PAF jets as a result he was shoot down. PAF thwarted his efforts to chase PAF Jets.

The Indian Air Force has promoted war hero Wing Commander Abhinandan to the rank of Group Captain. Abhinandan is credited to have been the only Mig-21 pilot ever to have shot down an F-16.

A hardened Pakistan's enemy like Christian Fair didn't believed in this claim by the Indians.
