Video: Pakistani Journalists Insulting Kulbhushan Jadhav’s Mother And Wife Will Make Your Blood Boil

Published on 27 December, 2017 at 11:54 am By

After being held in Pakistan’s custody for more than twenty one months, Kulbhushan Jadhav finally got to meet his mother and wife after repeated requests by the family and under pressure from the Indian government. It is important to note that Pakistan has held Jadhav on charges of spying against it and its secret military court has sentenced him death penalty.

The meeting between Jadhav and his mother and wife that lasted for about 45 minutes did not go about as it was expected. Jadhav never got to share the same room with the two or allowed any physical contact. A glass panel separated Jadhav on one side and his mother and wife on the other. Moreover, the way and the things Jadhav spoke at the meeting gave a clear indication that he was coerced and was considerably stressed out. While Pakistan called it as a “humanitarian gesture”, the way meeting was conducted was disliked and condemned by India.

After the tightly-controlled meeting concluded, more details regarding it have emerged in the media. And sadly, there are quite a few things that were conducted in an inhuman manner by Pakistan. Before the meeting, Jadhav’s wife Chetankul and mother Avanti were forced to change their outfits, including their footwear. As if this wasn’t sufficient, the ladies were even made to remove their mangal-sutra, bangles and bindi. And even after the meeting, Chetankul’s shoes were never returned by Pakistan, despite repeated requests from her.

During the meeting, the three were not allowed to converse in their mother tongue, Marathi, which could have been the most natural way of interaction between them. They were made to talk in English only, which had been very difficult for a woman of Jadhav’s mother’s age.

While it was agreed between the two countries that the two women will not indulge in any media interaction, media was allowed to reach up to them. While asking questions to Jadhav’s mother and wife, Pakistani journalists called Jadhav as a “killer” and kept heckling and harassing his family. The Pakistani press can be heard asking the ladies:

Aapke patidev ne hazaron begunah Pakistaniyo ke khoon se Holi kheli ispar kya kahengi?. Aapke kya jazbaat hain apne kaatil bete se milne ke baad?

A video footage of the same can be seen in the tweet below:

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Sawarj met Jadhav’s mother and wife on December 26. IndiaToday

Jadhav’s mother and wife returned to India on the evening of December 25. They met India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and ministers of state MJ Akbar and VK Singh and officials on December 26. Post their meeting, the MEA came out with an official statement regarding the meeting. Excerpts of the statement can be read below:

As you are all aware, the mother and wife of Shri Kulbhushan Jadhav met him yesterday in Islamabad. The meeting took place after requests by India for family access.

However, we note with regret that the Pakistani side conducted the meeting in a manner which violated the letter and spirit of our understandings.

The Pakistani press was allowed on multiple occasions to approach family members closely, harass and hector them and hurl false and motivated accusations about Shri Jadhav. This was despite a clear agreement that the media would not be allowed close access.

Under the pretext of security precautions, the cultural and religious sensibilities of family members were disregarded. This included removal of mangal sutra, bangles and bindi, as well as a change in attire that was not warranted by security.

The mother of Shri Jadhav was prevented from talking in their mother tongue, although this was clearly the natural medium of communication. She was repeatedly interrupted while doing so and eventually prevented from proceeding further in this regard.

For some inexplicable reason, despite her repeated requests, the shoes of the wife of Shri Jadhav were not returned to her after the meeting. We would caution against any mischievous intent in this regard.

The manner in which the meeting was conducted and its aftermath was clearly an attempt to bolster a false and unsubstantiated narrative of Shri Jadhav’s alleged activities. You would all agree that this exercise lacked any credibility.
