His statement came in response to the news of Abhinandan’s captivity and one of the videos released by the Pakistan Army.

Thank you my friends for your concern and wishes. I thank God for his blessings, Abhi is alive, not injured, sound in mind, just look at the way he talked so bravely…a true soldier… we are so proud of him. I am sure all your hands and blessings are on his head, prayers for his safe return. 

He further added that he hopes his son isn’t tortured and thanked people for their support.

I pray that he does not get tortured, and comes home safe and sound in body and mind. Thank you all for being with us in this hour of need. We draw our strengths from your support and energy
