Tiger Zinda Hai Movie

Tiger Zinda Hai: What could Indian military do to rescue Indian nurses kept hostage in Iraq?

Tiger Zinda Hai is the Bollywood style story of the real life incident of 2014 when 46 Indian nurses in Iraq were held captive by ISIS fighters. Luckily all these nurses were rescued safely by cumulative efforts of Indian Embassy and Kerala CM OommenChandy. Also there were other people including a prominent Malayali businessman in Middle East involved in negotiating safe release of nurses.

Was there a tiger in the Indian rescue team?

At one point of time, the Indian government was considering a commando operation to pull the nurses out of the captivity of militants but this option was never utilized. Had there been a commando operation, it wouldn’t be much different from the story of Tiger Zinda Hai. While complete details of the rescue operation are still to come out, we can hear the Bollywood side story from Ali Abbas Zafar.
