Even as India began building diplomatic pressure to bring back Kulbhushan Jadhav, the former naval officer sentenced to death, top generals have told the dispensation in Pakistan not to agree to any demand. The generals in Pakistan who run the show in that country are not in favour of any compromise.
A meeting of the Corps Commanders which was presided over by Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Baja decided that there would be no compromise and the questioning of sending Jadhav to India is ruled out. The meeting at Rawalpindi in Pakistan decided that there would be no compromise where Jadhav is concerned, and a statement to this effect was released by the Inter-Services Public Relations.
On Thursday the spokesperson for the Ministry for External Affairs Gopal Baglay said that Kulbhushan Jadhav is a kidnapped innocent Indian who is a retired officer of the Indian Navy. These facts were communicated to Pakistan over a year ago. "We had, in fact, made 13 requests to Pakistan to release him since he was arrested last year.
The Pakistan government has not shared any specific details about his condition, he also said. "We are not aware of where he has been kept and Pakistan has not told us. As soon as the information about his death sentence was passed, the Pakistan high commissioner was summoned. We told him that there is nothing concrete and the farcical nature of the case against him was wrong. We said that we would treat it as premeditated murder," Baglay also said.
