Tensions have raised between Pakistan and India after the airstrike on LOC on the 26th of February. Soon after Pakistan’s surprise to India, video of Pak squadron leader Hassan Siddiqui began to make rounds on social media with great applause for his valor and achievement as he brought down two Indian fighter jets who were intruding.
Love started pouring for Hassan Siddiqui and people are calling him the new MM Alam or Muhammad Mahmood Alam, who was a fighter pilot of the PAF and took down nine Indian jets during the war of 1965.
The pilot that was taken captive by the Pak Army Force was Vikram Abhinandan and that too in broad daylight.
Siddiqui, who belonged to Karachi, received a hero’s welcome as soon as his plane touched down after downing Indian jets.
Have a look at how the Pak Army is lauding the brave pilot!

Siddiqui was keen on serving his country as a child and the passion of becoming an Army Pilot was a career he wanted to succeed in.
Have a look at the details on him…

The citizens in Azad Kashmir town of Bhimber showered rose petals on the Pakistan Army convoy as it passed through the city after capturing Indian Air Force pilot. Moreover, charged crowds lined up on sides of streets could be seen boosting the morale of the soldiers who captured Wing Commander Abhinandan Kumar after his plane was taken down by Pakistan Air Force earlier.
There’s no doubt that Pakistan Army is striving so local citizens like us can have a sound sleep in the comfort of our homes. We salute them and they certainly are our pride! If you have anything more to add to this story, do let us know!
