7:03 pm
actually managed to come through the border but at all right after he came to there was a brief there was a brief press briefing by the indian air force which basically just said that he had to be taken for a medical checkup they did not take further questions but from the rituals that we were able to see it looks like the pilot came back and the first thing he said once across the water was that it was good to be home. and the thirteen must be true enough but his son says his release was a gesture of peace but that hasn't stopped the shelling along the line of control nimish other that's the defacto border between the two countries in kashmir. yes some of the wild this release has led and it is expected to lead to a deescalation in the tensions that have been building over the last few weeks that there is no way to say that there is peace in the kashmir valley all along the line of control today which lies between india. and pakistan athens to push me there has

been firing in india at mr push me today in an encounter in the complot or district and push me for indian soldiers lost their lives so clearly there is no simple solution at hand simply because of this release and india continues to allege that pakistan is not doing enough to fight terror pakistan released this indian pilot as a gesture of bees but india says that pakistan has to do far more to be taken seriously even the aerial strike by india that led to further escalation of these tensions india said it was at jesse mohammad gamp how the gesture moment claimed a terror attack in the push me in the police district on february fourteenth which led to the loud loss of forty indian soldiers alive and that is actually what has been behind this entire escalation while pakistan on the other hand says that it is taking all the steps and that there is no infrastructure of terror on its soil that it is supporting both countries on contradictory views and while this release is
7:05 pm
a welcome step deescalation overall off the tensions between the two countries is not going to be so simple and we finish on this have been some very tense days for the two nuclear neighbors what is the mood like on the ground what are the people of india and pakistan saying. well i'm with are when the tension started both sides were calling for action they were calling in the indian side was calling for action against pakistan because of the terror strike the pakistani side was calling for hit back against india after india's aerial strike but once tensions really began to escalate between the two nuclear neighbors there was also the hash tag seen north a war trending on twitter from board sites there were civilians coming out and saying that this must stop now even in pakistan there were little marches and rallies calling for the release of the indian pilot so of course the general sentiment right now is off relief that the indian follett has been released there's also relief that there's no further escalation but as i was mentioning before
