In one of the deadliest terror attacks in Kashmir on February 14, over 40 CRPF personnel were killed when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber blew up an explosive-laden vehicle near their bus, triggering off a set of events that led to escalating tensions between India and Pakistan.

Amid the standoff, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s gesture of returning captured Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Abhinandan Varthaman to India, led to an online campaign, with people demanding that he should be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

In Pakistan's parliament, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry submitted the resolution to nominate Khan for the prestigious prize.

The hashtag #NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan remained the top trend in Pakistan and a petition was also started for the same.

His tweet has garnered mixed reactions from the Internet.
