External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday said “Both Jadhav’s mother and wife were presented as widows in front of him. The way they arranged the meeting is also appalling, their clothes, shoes, bangles, and even their mangalsutras were taken away”.
Sushma said, “When I spoke to Jadhav’s mother, she told me that as soon as she reached, Kulbhushan asked her ‘Baba Kaise hain?’ because he saw no mangalsutra on his mother. Jadhav also thought some mishap might have taken place in his absence.
Sushma said that his mother was not allowed to speak in Marathi. She said two Pakistani officials were present in the meeting who kept stopping her repeatedly but when she continued, they switched off the intercom.
She said the meeting turned into an exercise of propaganda and an opportunity to exploit the situation. Sushma also spoke about Jadhav’s wife’s shoes being removed for ‘security reasons’ before the meeting in Pakistan.
Sushma concluded saying the treatment the mother and wife received is nothing like a humanitarian gesture, “Human rights of the family members have violated again and again an environment of fear was created for them,” she said. Sushma ended her address saying, she condemns such shameful behavior by Pakistan and will not take it silently and will expose their utterly disgusting behavior.
All parties endorsed the statement and are in complete agreement with the External Affairs Minister on this issue.
