Here’s her tweet.

Recently, a Pakistan TV channel shared an advertisement mocking Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s capture in Pakistan by the military forces. The 33-second video showed Abhinandan’s impersonator imitating the IAF pilot.

Also, Star Sports is back with the famous ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisement, which was the slogan for previous India vs Pakistan world cup matches. This time the ad comes with a tagline, “Baap, Baap Hota Hai” as it coincides with Father’s Day.

When it comes to cricket matches be it World Cup or any other matches between India and Pakistan, both the countries turn xenophobic. Creativity is always applauded but it shouldn’t hurt the sentiments of the people while going to create a hype of the matches.

What do you think? Do let us know.
