Pakistan’s armed forces spokesperson passes off doctored video Air Marshal Keelor speaking on ’65 war as Balakot airstrikes

It has been five months since the Balakot air strikes, but parody country Pakistan has still not been able to come to terms that Indian Air Force fighter jets destroyed the terror camps thriving on their soil.

It has been five months since the Balakot air strikes, but parody country Pakistan has still not been able to come to terms that Indian Air Force fighter jets destroyed the terror camps thriving on their soil. Pakistan Armed Forces’ official spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor from her personal account shared a doctored video of veteran Air Marshal Denzil Keelor, a hero of the 1965 India-Pakistan war.

In the video, Air Marshal Keelor is speaking about the 1965 war but that portion is omitted from the clip. Air Marshal Keelor is speaking about the losses during the war and says how some of the losses were not right. He mentions how some of the losses were due to tactical errors, inexperience. “You cannot go to war inexperienced. The price we paid for it was quite heavy,” he says. He added how Pakistan appeared better equipped than the Indian side.

The clip is then edited after which he says how certain information shouldn’t have been made public as it gives out details about failures, like tactical failures, strategic failures and military leadership failures. The video also had inset video which had clips from the Balakot air strikes where Wing Commander Abhinandan was captured by Pakistan, to be released later.

The video is originally a few years old where Air Marshal Keelor was recounting his 1965 India-Pakistan war.

In the video he is speaking about the 1962 India-China war as well which Air Marshal Keelor says was Jawaharlal Nehru’s failure. He said how Nehru relied on diplomacy and ignored the armed forces, because of which India lost.

Pakistan’s Major Ghafoor, however, made this admission of the 1962 war failure to be that of Balakot airstrikes which actually had destroyed terror camps on Pakistan soil.

After four hours and numerous people pointing it out to him that he got the dates mixed up by over five decades, he tweeted a clarification that he was not aware the clip is edited.

Parody country Pakistan’s spokesperson of armed forces continued to be brazen about it and said that he got confused because ‘admission and expression’ were ‘too identical’ to differentiate. “environment remained unchanged for IAF on both the occasions,” he added without realising that the ‘failure’ Air Marshal Keelor was speaking about was that against China, not even Pakistan!
