Abhinandan Varthaman is a national hero in India. The Indian pilot's plane was shot down in Pakistan during a standoff over the disputed Kashmir region. Seized in Pakistan, returned to India, Abhinandan Varthaman, and his trademark handlebar mustache, became an instant star. But now, the Pakistani Air Force has opened an exhibition in the PAF Museum featuring a statue of the Wing Commander and items from his capture. Pakistanis are flocking to the gallery, drawing anger from across the border with India.
