Posting a poem on its official Twitter handle @IAF_MCC, ‘Sabke Bass Ki Baat Nahi’, written by Bipin Allhabadi, the IAF described the fighter pilot’s feat as something that is not possible for everyone.

“सबके बस की बात नहीं
जो किया तुमने अभिनंदन,
वह सबके बस की बात नहीं।
आखेटक का किया आखेट,
यह सबके बस की बात नहीं।…
… जननी, जन्मभूमि का गौरव हो तुम,
सर्वोच्च शिखर पर तुम्हें बिठाते हैं।
जो तुम कर पाए एक जीवन में,
वह सबके बस की बात नहीं।

— विपिन ‘इलाहाबादी’.
Jai Hind”

Tensions between India and Pakistan have been escalating since a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel in Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14.

In retaliation, India launched a counter-terror operation in Balakot on February 26. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 and captured Wing Commander Varthaman.

As a result, Pakistan has been facing pressure from global organisation to ban terror groups in its territory.
