A military court in Pakistan has pronounced Kulbushan Jadhav guilty of espionage and sponsoring terrorism in that country. Here’s another story of the Pakistan’s disgusting intentions towards the Indians.
Kulbushan Jadhav is yet another Indian who was a victim of the false allegations of Pakistan. Pakistan has convicted former Indian Navy Officer Kulbushan Jadhav of espionage and terrorism charges. A military court in Pakistan has already given death sentence to Mr Yadav. It has also claimed that Kulbushan is a spy of the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW).
Who is Kulbushan Jadhav?
Kulbushan Sudhir Jadhav (born 16 April 1970) is an Indian national who was arrested in Baluchistan, Pakistan, over charges of terrorism and spying for India’s intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).
The Pakistani government states that he is a serving commander in the Indian Navy who was involved in subversive activities inside Pakistan and was arrested on 3 March 2016 during a counter-intelligence operation in Baluchistan.
The Indian government recognizes Jadhav as a former naval officer, but denies any current links with him and maintains that he took premature retirement and was possibly abducted from Iran.
“7 Raw rules” that prove Kulbushan Jadhav is not a spy, straight from the mouth of former sleuth:
The R&AW, usually, doesn’t send ‘outsiders’ to Pakistan. As a matter of rule, only ‘assets’ living in bordering areas are sent across the border as they know the language and practice the same culture. They easily mix up with the local population. Kulbushan Jadhav is from Maharashtra and had served in the Indian Navy. It is a disqualification for R&AW for any assignment in Pakistan.
If the R&AW is to send an ‘outsider’ to Pakistan, the person must have almost super-human abilities and intellect. The ‘asset’ must be an extremely keen observer and quick learner, who can assimilate new social behavior and adopt new practices seamlessly. Such persons are sent on short and extremely vital operations. Kulbushan Jadhav does not fit the requirements. Also, Kulbushan Jadhav remained in the region for too long.
The R&AW does not send its ‘assets’ carrying Indian passport and that too through a third country. Kulbushan was holding an Indian passport and tried to enter Pakistan illegally through Iran. This is not the way R&AW carries out its operations.
The R&AW sends its ‘assets’ to a country only when it has ‘source’ in that country. The process is always smooth. It is highly unlikely for an R&AW agent to be caught while crossing the border. The R&AW operations are foolproof.
What Pakistan counts as evidence in the video of Kulbushan Jadhav released by its agencies last year, doesn’t match with hard facts. Pakistan claimed and Kulbushan allegedly confessed to have named an R&AW joint secretary by the name Anil Kumar Gupta. There has been no officer bearing the name on that position in the R&AW. Pakistan’s claim that Kulbushan Jadhav had links with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, whom he met briefly can’t be true. NSA does not meet field operatives.
Moreover, the video released by Pakistan has glaring discrepancies. Kulbushan Jadhav gives two dates for his retirement from Indian Navy. At one point of time, Kulbushan Jadhav says that he left Indian Navy in 2001. Later, he says that he is still serving the Indian Navy and will retire in 2022. The video has many such instances giving impression that Kulbushan Jadhav is in ‘unstable state of mind’ – possibly due to torture or under the influence of some drug.
Businessmen operating in conflict zone, at times, offer to share information with the R&AW. This is especially done by those who don’t do well in their businesses. This works on case to case basis with R&AW accepting some offers while rejecting others. But, such persons are never given longer and critical assignments. Kulbushan Jadhav had small scale business in Iran. It was not possible for him to have ‘deep’ contacts. It is improbable that Kulbushan Jadhav was an R&AW ‘asset’ of any significance.
There was also a plea to the Pakistani’s former foreign affairs advisor, Sartaz Aziz from our external affairs minister, Sushma Swaraj, asking for the visa application for the mother of Kulbushan, but the Pakistani’s denied this brutally. Sushma Swaraj condemned this with harsh words “no courtesy”!!
Can the Pakistani’s ever have a dignified life?? This question is to all the ruthless Pakistani’s out there, who have an eye on the Indians since decades.
