Pak should have shown decency to let Jadhav's mother hug him: Friend

Having lost her brother four years back in Pakistan, Kaur said she could fully understand what Jadhav's family must be going through at this hour.

Islamabad has claimed it has made a decision to grant India consular access to former Indian Navy officer, a right over which India and Pakistan have been sparring at the International Court of Justice.

According to itinerary details obtained by Geo News, Jadhav's mother Avanti and wife flew in to Islamabad via Dubai.

Speaking to media, Shashi Tharoor said, "It is a step forward because after 21 to 22 months Pakistani government have arrested Kulbhushan Jadhav and finally somebody has been able to see him".

Jadhav has been languishing in a Pakistani jail ever since his arrest a year ago over allegations that he is a spy for the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), India's premier external intelligence agency.

"Pakistan permits the meeting of wife and mother of Commander Jadhav with him, as a humanitarian gesture, on the birthday of the Father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah", Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Faisal tweeted.

Pakistan Rangers, Anti-Terrorism Squads (ATS) and sharp shooters were deployed at the roof tops, in view of the meeting.

Facebook job ads allow age discrimination, lawsuit claims
In addition to employment, civil rights laws prohibit discrimination in housing, employment, lending, voting and education. In Amazon's case, for jobs at its distribution centers, it changed 18-50 to anyone over the age of 18.

Jadhav, who has two children, reportedly joined India's prestigious National Defence Academy in 1987 and was commissioned as an engineer in the Indian Navy in 1991. The ICJ halted his execution on India's appeal pending the final verdict by it.

It said that Jadhav is not an ordinary person as he had entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out sabotage activities.

For him, the treatment meted out to Jadhav's mother and wife by the Pakistan authorities was "unacceptable". He can still ask for a presidential pardon in case Bajwa turned down his mercy petition. New Delhi has also accused Islamabad of violating the Vienna Convention by denying consular access. Congress said the meeting was deeply unsatisfactory.

"Is this what India is, [on] one hand it approached the International Court of Justice to save Jadhav, who is a proclaimed terrorist, while on the other this champion of human rights treats Kashmiris worse than terrorists".

Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav on Monday met his wife and mother at the foreign affairs ministry, Pakistani officials said.

"This leaves a question for the world as well as India", she said, as she concluded the video.

The meeting started at around 1.35 pm local time (2.05 pm IST) and lasted about 40 minutes, after which Jadhav's wife and mother were driven away in a white SUV.
