Prime News, National (New Delhi), December 30:- Apparently angered and upset with the ill-treatment meted out to the mother and the wife of death row convict Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is lodged in a Pakistani jail, a Delhi BJP leader on Friday ordered footwear online and sent them to the Pakistan High Commission here for delivery.
The footwear was bought online by Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga who later dispatched it to Pakistan’s High Commission for delivery as a mark of protest against the alleged ”inhuman” treatment of Jadhav’s kin.
“Pakistan wants our slippers. Let’s give them slippers. I have ordered slippers and sent to Pakistan High Commission,” he tweeted.
Bagga also launched an online campaign requesting the “nationalists” to send slippers to Pakistan.
“Over a hundred people sent footwear to Pakistan High Commission within a few hours after I did it,” he claimed.
Jadhav’s mother and wife had recently visited Pakistan and were forced to remove their ‘mangalsutra’, bindi, bangles and footwear by the Pakistani authorities before they were allowed to meet him through a glass screen.
Jadhav’s mother and wife met him on December 25 inside the Pakistan Foreign Office building in Islamabad under unusual circumstances – he was separated from the two women by a glass screen and they conversed through an intercom.
During a press interaction, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had on Tuesday said that Pakistan had disregarded the cultural and religious sensibilities of Jadhav’s mother and wife, who were asked to remove various articles, citing it as a security measure.
Almost all political parties strongly condemned Pakistan for its alleged ill-treatment to the wife and mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the former Indian Navy official who has been given a death sentence by a military court there. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
