Faysal Qureshi exposes India’s lies about shooting down PAF’s F16 in Feb

Actor/host Faysal Qureshi in his Twitter post has revealed that he recently met Pakistani Wing Commander Haider Shah

September 03, 2019

Actor/host Faysal Qureshi in his Twitter post has revealed that he recently met Pakistani Wing Commander Haider Shahbaz Ali, who India declared dead in February this year. The actor said he will prove India’s lies in his chat show that will air on Pakistan’s Defense Day (September 6).

On February 27, when Pakistan shot down Indian aircraft and Indian Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was taken captive by Pakistani Armed Force (PAF), India claimed they also shot down PAF's F16 flown by Wing Commander Haider Shahbaz Ali and falsely reported that Ali was killed in the clash.

“This goes to show that India has always lied without evidence Haider Shahbaz, met him today and watch my show Salam Zindagi on September 6,” Faysal wrote on his Twitter along with a selfie with the pilot.

India, in their claim, said that before Abhinandan was taken into custody by Pakistan, he shot down F16 flown by Ali. Indian media also falsely accused Pakistan of trying to 'hide' the death of their pilot in air combat to escape 'embarrassment'.
