‘Liberals’ bully Air Vistara into deleting their tweet honouring decorated war veteran onboard

Air Vistara had tweeted on April 17 expressing pride and honour of having Major General G D Bakshi onboard their flight

Two days after Air Vistara tweeted that they were proud to have Major General G D Bakshi (Retd.) onboard their flight, Air Vistara’s Twitter account has now deleted that tweet after ‘liberals’ shamed the airlines and threatened they’d shift their loyalties to a rival airline.

Air Vistara’s tweet now deleted

OpIndia has reached out to Air Vistara for a response but has not heard back from them yet. We shall update the article as soon as we get a response.

Indian domestic airline, Air Vistara, on April 19 posted a picture on their social media account stating they were honoured to have Major General G D Bakshi (Retd.) onboard and thanked him for his service to the nation.

Major General G D Bakshi (Retd.) is a Kargil War hero and was awarded the Vishisht Seva Medal for commanding a battalion in the Kargil War. He is the younger brother of Captain Raman Bakshi, who was the first martyr in 1965 India-Pakistan War at the young age of 23 years. A year and a half after his elder brother was martyred, Major General Bakshi joined the National Defence Academy in June 1967. He joined Indian Military Academy on November 14, 1971 and was called into action during the 1971 India-Pakistan war. In 1999, he returned to Military Operations Directorate to plan for Operation Vijay during the Kargil War.

General Bakshi has been on the receiving end of hate from so-called liberals because of his nationalistic views. He had been very vocal about not sparing Pakistan, especially after the ghastly Pulwama terror attack. “Pakistan has started the war, we will end it,” he had said.

When the above tweet of Air Vistara went viral, many so-called liberals tried to shame Air Vistara for welcoming Major General G D Bakshi onboard. It seems now that bowing down to their pressure, Air Vistara has deleted the picture.

Update: Air Vistara has released a statement which says that since the recent post which had an image of Major General G D Bakshi (Retd.) and 2 air hostesses had received a lot of abuses directed toward all the parties concerned, they decided to delete the tweet.

They say their decision to delete the image was driven by the objective of deleting such comments.
