Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with wife, mother obscured by glass screen, Pakistan propaganda

The convicted Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav met his mother Avanti and wife Chetankul at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad on Monday, nearly 10 months after the former was arrested from Balochistan on espionage charges.

His wife and mother will reach Pakistan through a commercial flight and will leave for India today after the meeting. "One can only imagine the plight of Jadhav's mother". Pakistan foreign ministry spokesperson Mohammad Faisal tweeted that the meeting was arranged in light of "Islamic traditions and based on purely humanitarian grounds". "Indian DHC in Islamabad will be the accompanying diplomat". Jadhav, who seen in a blue-coloured suit while meeting his family, was wearing a sweater in the clip raising several questions. TV footage showed a convoy of around seven vehicles escorting Jadhav's family in the city.

"Can you imagine what a mother who last saw her son two years ago must have felt when allowed to meet him from across a glass partition and was unable to touch him", Pawar told PTI.

"I requested a meeting with my wife and mother and I am thankful to Govt of Pakistan for this grand gesture", he was heard saying in the video which was played several times before the Foreign Office briefing.

The 17,000 youths in CT would have to find another - more expensive - way to find health insurance if the program vaporizes. But congressional leaders set that aside to pass the big tax bill, which includes corporate and estate tax cuts.

Faisal said Pakistan had hoped to make the family members available to media but that India objected, insisting journalists be barred from speaking to them.

The video message played by the Foreign Office during a press conference after Jadhav's meeting with his family was recorded before their meeting, officials said.

Jadhav has been lodged in a Pakistani jail facing death sentence on charges of espionage. On 20th of this month, Pakistan had issued visa to them to visit Islamabad to meet Jadhav. India maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.
