While India has hit a panic button in South Asia after the Pulwama incident by violating Pakistan’s airspace, sending its failed fighter pilots over the LoC on a killing spree in the dark of the night.
Pakistanis have proven that they are a big hearted nation who will treat even their enemy with open arms.
Who can forget the morning of Feb 27, when the IAF pilot Abhinandan was captured by the armed forces in broad day light, after the PAF squadron leader Hasan Siddiqui shot down the enemy jet, infiltrating the sovereign nation of 204.73 million.
This Pakistani uncle has got some serious marketing skills. The small roadside tea stall has a banner with the following text: 'Khan's Tea Stall – A tea that makes foes turn into friends' with the image of Indian Air Force pilot #Abhinandan – #IAF pic.twitter.com/ldQVG6brI7

The captured pilot Abhinandan was treated with warmth and was well looked after, despite him being sent on a targeted mission to spill innocent blood, just to feed the fire of an upcoming election.
His viral video message after the capture and before crossing over to the Indian side had won many hearts.
This peace gesture is not only limited to the armed forces of Pakistan but the Indian pilot Abhinandan has been an overnight sensation over here and people didn’t show spite at the pilot, instead were in favor to send him back to India safe and sound to his family.
Though India has kept on pushing the war button with everyday indiscriminate firing along the border that has martyred a number of Pakistani’s and left many injured, the nation’s resilience is far from being bogged down by the hate tactics and drum beating neighbor.
One other proof of Pakistanis signaling peace is Abhinandan s picture, set up somewhere on a tea stall. It stems from the video, when Abhinandan after his capture took a sip of the tea offered and appreciated its taste.
The tea stall set up by Haji Abdulhaq Khan had an amazing caption, narrating that we sell such a tea that even the enemy turns into our friend.
Many memes have went viral after this latest escalation of Indo-Pak tensions, but this marketing ploy has proven to be the cherry on the cake.
This gesture shouldn’t be ignored from a nation under attack. It shows that we are a mature nation that doesn’t harbor ill for even our enemy and are looking forward to making them our friends through our hospitality, love and kindness.
