NEW DELHI: In a major embarrassment for India, a one-minute video shot for the country’s Independence Day celebrations featured two Pakistani fighter jets flying with Indian flag.
The opening portion of the Indian Culture Ministry‘s over one-minute video celebrating ‘70 years of Independence‘ featured an animated sequence of the two JF-17 flying with the Indian flag, however, it was removed after some officials of the government pointed out the goof-up.
Though there has been non official reaction from the Indian government on the matter, sources said that it could have been an “inadvertant mistake”, given the Pakistani combat aircraft’s similarity in looks with Indian Tejas fighter jets.
The JF-17 jet was jointly developed by Pakistan and China and both are promoting it big time to garnerglobal supply orders.
India celebrates its Independence Day on August 15, while Pakistan celebrates its Independence Day a day earlier. Monitoring Desk
