Srinagar, Dec 26: Terming the meeting of Kulbushan Jadhav with his family as an act of human values, Democratic Freedom Party has said that India should learn from Pakistan how it treats even an enemy spy.
Jadhav has been convicted on the charges of spying but still his family was allowed to meet him in such a dignified way. What about Shabir Ahmad Shah? Where and how he has been incarcerated? How much harassment we the family members have to face every time we go to meet him? New Delhi should ponder over these questions, Freedom Party, Secretary General, Moulana Mohammad Abdullah Tari said in a statement.
Jadhav’s family was allowed to sit and talk for 45minutes with him. The family of Shah Sahib is not allowed to meet Shah Sahib for more than ten minutes and that too standing under most unhygienic conditions where one would get all wet and dehydrated because of too much of sweating, Moulana Tari said referring to the better half of Shabir Shah Sahib.
Not only a partition, but a window with grills and dirty glass, across which you can’t even see properly, stands in between them and Shah Sahib whenever they get a chance to meet him. To meet Shah Sahib,his family has to cross so many hurdles. It takes them around 4 to 5 hours to reach to that place and then meet him just for 5 to 10 minutes, he said.
Jadhav is a spy and Shabir Shah a political prisoner declared as “Prisoner of Conscience” by the international rights watch dog, Amnesty International. Shah Sahib has spent 31 years of his life in prison only for his political belief but still India is not willing to provide him any medical facility in the jail. (CNS)
