Babur-Godavari collision: Pakistan's lie on high seas hooliganism nailed
India Today ^ | 3 Aug 2011

Pakistan's lie has been nailed. A dramatic video uploaded on the internet shows an incident that took place on the high seas between PNS Babur and INS Godavari. A video clip taken from the Pakistani side shows it was Babur making dangerous manoeuvres behind Godavari.

The video was shot during the MV Suez rescue episode in June. The Pakistan warship brushed against the Indian warship in gross violation of all navigational norms.

The dramatic images clearly establish that the Pakistani ship approached the Indian ship from behind and therefore it was fully at fault.

What makes this interesting is that the very same incident was at the centre of the Indo-Pakistan diplomatic row. Babur violated international navigational safety norms to brush against Godavari in a bid to score brownie points in the MV Suez episode.

One can also hear the audio of Pakistani sailors shouting slogans at the Indian warship, once the ships are close.

The Pak ship looks like its crewed by brain addled castaways.

It’s comforting to know that there are nuclear weapons under the control of barking savages such as those on display in that video, isn’t it...

Seems like all they could do was get close to the Indian ship and scream and yell Allah hu Fubar. The Pakis nutjobs on youtube seem really excited that they “kicked Indian navy's ass” with all that screaming and yelling. I would love to hear the screaming and yelling when one of Godavary’s deadly P-20 Styx comes too close to the Babur.

Godavari is also a frigate, albeit larger in size and far more advanced in systems and weapons. But then the Pakistani surface fleet is more or less for patrol functions-their submarines are a real threat.
