Two years ago, Pakistan proved to the world that we are capable of defending ourselves against an aggressor that is always larger and more resourceful.

Pakistan shot down an Indian plane and captured Wing Commander Abhinandan on this day in 2019. Pakistan still recalls an unforgettable day. The retaliation was in response to alleged strikes by Balakot that India carried out in Balakot, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.

Today, Pakistan is celebrating ‘Surprise Day’ to mark the downing of the Indian plane as a tribute to the retaliatory attack by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF). Today is the second ‘Operation Quick Retort’ anniversary.

On this occasion, Air Staff Chief Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan warned that the urge for peace in Pakistan should not be mistaken.

“I thank all Pakistan Air Force personnel for their professionalism, bravery [and] determination shown in Operation Swift Retort.”

“Will always protect the motherland against all threats,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated the Pakistani country and saluted the Pakistani Armed Forces earlier today.

“On the 2nd anniversary of our response to India’s unlawful, reckless military airstrike adventure against Pakistan, I congratulate the entire nation & salute our Armed Forces.”

According to UNSC resolutions, India must take the requisite measures to fulfill the long-standing demand and right of the Kashmiri people to self-determination.

February 27, 2019 – The Surprise Day

The operation was a reaction to the failed ‘surgical strike’ by India in Balakot. There, only a few trees managed to ‘destroy’ the Indian Air Force. Two Indian aircraft, a MiG-21 Bison and an SU-30, were shot down during the aerial skirmish with India that day. They reportedly tried to intrude into the airspace of Pakistan.

Pakistani authorities apprehended Abhinandan, the Mig-21’s pilot. The fighter jet had collided with Pakistani soil. Furthermore, the captured pilot was later released as a show of goodwill to India.

The failure was due to the lack of availability of aircraft such as the Rafale. They claim it would have affected the outcome of the Balakot crisis. LOL… Modi Seriously!

The Pakistani Twittersphere is ecstatic about the occasion.

Meanwhile, in the music video for his song “Tea is Great,” Ali Gul Pir pays tribute to four fallen trees.

As can be deduced, every year the PAF’s success against a much greater adversary is now observed as a ‘Surprise Day.’

Last year, the PAF showed the remains of the Indian jet MIG-21 at Air Headquarters in Islamabad to commemorate this moral victory and to mark the first anniversary of the downing of Indian jets on 27 February 2019.
