New Delhi: Pakistan's director-general of Inter-Services Public Relations, Asif Ghafoor posted a doctored video of retired Indian Air Force Marshal Denzil Keelor claiming the Indian war hero was talking about ‘Indian failure’ in the Balakot airstrikes.
Ghafoor on his Twitter handle shared a doctored video and stated that IAF Marshal Keelor was talking about the "Indian failure" during the dogfight between the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on February 27 this year, just a day after the Balakot airstrikes.
The video was recorded in 2015. He was speaking in an interview titled 'Nehru lost India the war: Air Marshal Denzil Keelor speaks about India's battle losses' on August 9, 2019. The interview was posted by Wilderness Films India. The Indian war hero was taking about 1962 (India vs China) and 1965 (India vs Pakistan) wars.
The doctored video also shows a clip of wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman released by the Pakistani military.
