Police in Indian-administered Kashmir on Tuesday evening seized a plane-shaped balloon bearing the official Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) logo.

The Indian news website India Today quoted Jammu and Kashmir police as saying that the green and white plane-like balloon was found in Sotra Chak village of Hiranagar sector, which was immediately taken into custody. The Indian news agency ANI shared a picture of the balloon on Twitter, after which it went viral and a never-ending stream of public comments began.

A user named Najib al-Hasnain called the balloon “helpless.”

As soon as I saw the balloon image I burst out laughing … Though, this could be a serious issue. @NIA_India should investigate, too.

Many users called it the ‘new content of memes’.
