Heres what was said in Parliament on Kulbhushan Jadhav issue

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday described in detail the mistreatment that Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife Chetankul and mother Avanti had to face when they went to meet Jadhav in Islamabad on Monday.

As she described the ordeal and misbehaviour meted out to them by the Pakistani authorities, Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad called Pakistan’s behaviour “an insult to 130 crore Indians”.

He added that if “another country misbehaves with our mothers and sisters, it will not be tolerated”.

It need be mentioned that Jadhav’s wife and mother met him for the first time since his arrest and death sentence in Pakistan 22 months ago.

They were asked to remove their mangalsutra, bindi, bangles and forced to change and wear what was given to them before their 40-minute meeting, across a glass screen and through intercom, prior to being allowed to meet Jadhav.

Trinamool Congress lawmaker Derek O Brien said, “We completely endorse every word of the statement and the spirit of the statement.”
