Major diplomatic win to the Modi government in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case!!!
Since the day after the case of Mr Yadav entered the premises of International Court of Justice, India named and shamed Pakistan’s mistakes. Now due to Modi government’s move, former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife is granted permission to meet him in Pakistan. This move has been come after Mr Jadhav spent 20 months in the Pakistani prison.
“A note verbale to this effect has been sent to the Indian high commission in Islamabad, today. The government of Pakistan has decided to arrange a meeting of Jhadav with his wife in Pakistan, purely on humanitarian grounds”. This was the statement made by Dr Mohammad Faisal, Pakistan foreign office spokesperson.
Pakistan claimed that Mr Jadhav was arrested on March 3 from Balochistan, where he was working as a spy for intel agency Research and Analysis Wing or RAW.
How Pakistan’s foreign ministry lied after abducting Mr Jadhav?
“Commander Kalbushan Jhadev alias, Hussain Mubarak Patel, a serving Commander of the Indian Navy, working with Indian Intelligence Agency/RAW was apprehended by Pakistan law enforcement agencies on March 3, 2016 after he illegally crossed over into Pakistan. He confessed before a Magistrate and the Court that he was tasked by RAW to plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities aimed at destabilizing and waging war against Pakistan”.
How India tackled Pakistan’s blatant lies?
But Indian foreign ministry had bashed Pakistan’s claims by saying “it kidnapped Mr Jadhav last year from Iran and his subsequent presence in Pakistan has never been explained credibly”.
“If this sentence against an Indian citizen, awarded without observing basic norms of law and justice, is carried out, the Government and people of India will regard it as a case of premeditated murder,” this was another statement of India’s foreign ministry.
“No response to these applications has been received till date”, this is how India’s external affairs ministry responded after the application requesting permission for Jadhav’s parents to meet him went in vain.
Even an foreign delegate of Germany has said that Kulbhushan Jadhav is kidnapped by terrorist from Chabahar(Iran). Reports also said that Kulbhushan Jadhav has been sold to ISI.
Pakistani Military Court has sentenced Jadhav to death on charges of espionage and terrorism. But the International Court of Justice in May had put a stay on Jadhav’s execution on India’s appeal.
When Jadhav’s mother, Avantika wanted to meet her son, Pakistan denied consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.
The ICJ has asked Pakistan to submit its response or memorial by December 13 before the court could start further proceedings in the case.
