With national fervour, Pakistan commemorates the fourth anniversary of “Surprise Day”

Operation Swift Retort, a military operation by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in response to an unsuccessful bombing by the Indian Air Force (IAF) in Balakot in February 2019, is being commemorated in Pakistan on its fourth anniversary.

In the face of neighbouring hostility, this action showed the Pakistani military forces’ bravery and prowess.

Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, an Indian pilot, was captured during the operation and later released as a sign of friendship and peace. The PAF also shot down two Indian fighter jets.

This effective operation demonstrated to the rest of the world that Pakistan’s military forces will stand their ground in the face of challenges to their sovereignty and will always be prepared to protect their nation and citizens.

With its rapid and forceful response to the Indian incursion, the PAF made it abundantly plain to the Indian administration that Pakistan would not put up with any invasion of its airspace or borders.

The achievement of the operation highlighted the skills and professionalism of the Pakistani military forces, and it is a matter of national pride for the whole country.

It is important to recognise the Pakistani armed services’ courage in risking their lives to protect the nation on this fourth anniversary of Operation Swift Retort.

Let’s not forget about Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was treated with respect and dignity during his captivity, in accordance with international laws and conventions.

Pakistan remains committed to peace and stability in the region, but it will always be prepared to defend itself against any aggression.

As Pakistan celebrates the anniversary of Operation Swift Retort, Pakistani armed forces reaffirm their resolve to protect their country and people and continue working towards a peaceful and prosperous future for all.
