Wasim Akram with hashtag #TogetherWeWin #NoToWar added, “We need brothers in arm if we want to beat this war on terror.”

Akram’s tweet came on a day after Pakistan claimed that it had arrested Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman following an air combat, with the two sides saying they shot down each other’s warplanes.

A day after Indian air strike on a terror camp in Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir saw heightened military activity on Wednesday, with Pakistani jets violating the Indian air space.

India had earlier in the day accused Pakistan of targeting the country’s military installations in response to its counter-terrorism action a day earlier and said an Indian MiG-21 Bison pilot was “missing in action”.

It said that Pakistan has used its air force to target military installations on the Indian side and in the aerial engagement, one PAF fighter aircraft was shot down but a MiG-21 aircraft was also lost.
