Foreigners who attended Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin Markaz to be tried for violating visa rule

Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

Islamabad: Pakistan today directed its High Commission in New Delhi to issue visas to the wife and mother of Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav, official sources said.

The directive was issued by the Foreign Ministry following its decision last week to allow Jadhav’s family to meet him on 25 December in Islamabad, they said.

The Foreign Office sources said that adequate security measures will be taken for complete safety of Jadhav’s family.

An Indian high commission official will be allowed to accompany Jadhav’s family during their meeting.

Jadhav, 47, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April, following which India moved the ICJ in May. The ICJ halted his execution on India’s appeal pending the final verdict by it.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav alias Hussein Mubarak Patel from restive Balochistan province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran.

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

Pakistan yesterday rejected India’s plea for consular access to Jadhav at the ICJ, claiming that New Delhi wants the access to get the information gathered by its “spy”.

Pakistan has repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies.

Meanwhile, Foreign Office spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal told media that India has formally responded to Pakistan’s offer to let family of Jadhav meet him on humanitarian grounds.

“We have received a reply from the Indian side, that they would be sending Commander Jadhav’s wife and mother on 25 December, 2017. The details and modalities of the meeting will now be worked out,” he said.
