India chides Pakistan for treatment of officer's family

India chides Pakistan for treatment of officer's family

Swaraj also claimed that Jadhav, a spy as per Pakistan's claims, was in "pressure" during the meeting and his health was also not good. "This could have been a step forward for both countries, but that wasn't to be".

Later, all parties endorsed Sushma Swaraj's statement and extended their support to the government.

"Human rights of the family members were violated again and again and an environment of fear was created for them", Swaraj said.

The authorities were ascertaining whether the "metallic object" in the shoes was a camera or a recording chip, "Pakistan Today" quoted Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Mohammad Faisal as saying. While doing so, she was repeatedly interrupted by the two Pakistani officials present in the meeting. "However, the truth is that both humanity and compassion were missing during the meeting that was arranged on humanitarian and compassionate grounds", the External Affairs Minister said.

After the meeting, Pakistani authorities also did not return the shoes of Jadhav's wife despite repeated requests. There are not enough words to condemn the same.

On May 18, 2017, the International Court of Justice stayed the hanging after India approached it against the death sentence.




Madam Speaker, 7. I am fully confident that this entire House and through this House, the people of India, strongly condemns, in one voice, the obnoxious behaviour of Pakistan and affirm their solidarity with the Jadhav family.

Sushma Swaraj said that Jadhav's mother who only wears a saree was forced to wear salwar-kurta. "The emotional meeting was instead used as a weapon of propaganda by Pakistan", said Swaraj, while briefing Rajya Sabha.

Madam Speaker, I rise to apprise the House of recent developments pertaining to Shri Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian national in the illegal custody of Pakistan.

She also revealed that Jadhav's family told them that he seemed tensed and it was clear that he was speaking what was tutored to him by his captors.

Adding to these treatment, Pakistani journalists heckled and harassed Jadhav's mother and wife by hurling insensitive questions on them - "Aapke patidev ne hazaron begunah Pakistaniyo ke khoon se Holi kheli ispar kya kahengi?" What about the Emirates flight they took? "Pakistan government has to assure that they would not disrespect the women of our country in this manner".
