Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing last day of election campaigning in Gujarat, said that Modi said he had warned Pakistan of consequences if it had not returned Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman adding that had Pakistan not returned Abhinandan Varthaman then it would have been a ‘qatal ki raat‘ (night of slaughter).
“On the second day, America’s senior official said India would do something big. That Modi was ready with 12 missiles. It would have been a serious situation so it was good that Pakistan announced to return the Indian pilot else it would have been ‘qatal ki raat‘,” PM Modi said while addressing a rally in Patan.
Referring to the Balakot airstrike, Modi said “After our pilot was caught, Pakistan thought they got something by chance. The Opposition started talking about our pilot’s life. They forgot about this major attack a day before. Many people were even ready to take a candlelight march. We conducted a press conference and warned Pakistan that if anything happened to our pilot, you will keep telling the world that Modi did this to you,” he said.
Varthaman was captured by the Pakistani Army after his Mig-21 Bison jet was shot down by Pakistan Air Force jets during the dogfight.
