Indian army lost a lot of heroes at the border, around and somewhere in the middle. Starting from the Uri attacks, there was no stone unturned by the mighty army in facing the enemies beyond the border. We can never thank them enough, no matter how much we talk, we would still run out of words, such as the work they do to protect us.
Pak army released our IAF pilot Abinandhan yesterday in the evening. There are fake videos of Abinandhan which are going viral on social media since he in Pakistan. Recently, another video of a woman requesting the BJP not to politicize the sacrifice of martyrs has been doing the rounds on social media. It is being claimed that the woman in the viral video is Abhinandan’s wife.
The video states that Hello everyone. I am the wife of an army officer. On behalf of an army officer. On behalf of all the families of all the armed forces, I request my fellow Indians, especially the political leaders, the political leaders… not to politicize the sacrifice of our soldiers. It takes so much to be a soldier. It takes so much to be a soldier. And just imagine the kind of pain, the family of Abhinandan is going through right now. So please, till the time the tension is eased at Indo-Pak border, stop your political rallies and don’t you dare, I am repeating again, don’t you dare to snatch away the credit of our soldiers. Please, please stop counting your tickets and stop doing your politics here. You have enough times to play your politics but not at this time and not at the cost of our soldiers’ sacrifice. It is my humble request to all political leaders, especially the BJP political leaders.”

However, it is a fake one. If we closely observe the video we can find the reality behind this. Facebook user Dinesh Singta, who claims to be a National Students Union of India (NSUI) member shared a video which starts with the woman saying: I am the wife of an army officer. At the 21st second of the video, she can be heard saying: Just imagine the kind of tension, the kind of pain the family of Abhinandan is going through right now. It is to be noted that the woman is making a reference to Abhinandan’s family, clearly indicating that she is not a member of his family.
