New Delhi, April 15: The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday slammed the neighbouring country Pakistan for awarding death sentence to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav on charges of espionage and 'waging war' against Pakistan recently.
Senior BJP leader Ram Madhav said that Pakistan has no commitment towards human rights, as the neighbouring country wants to send Jadhav, an innocent person, to the gallows without giving him a trail.
"Pakistan has no commitment towards human rights. India will do everything possible to ensure justice for Jadhav," Madhav was quoted as saying by ANI.
While Pakistan has denied consular access to Jadhav once again, India has currently stalled all the ongoing diplomatic parleys with its neighbour. Although Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has stated several times that all possible measures would be taken by India for the safe release of Jadhav, who is currently lodged in a Pakistani jail, the Pakistani authorities stated that they would go ahead with Jadhav's execution.
In the last few days, several Indians in different parts of the country staged protests against Pakistan for awarding death sentence to the 46-year-old former official of the Indian Navy on charges of espionage. The Indian government has vehemently denied the charges labelled against Jadhav.
Jadhav was staying with his family in Mumbai before he left for a business-related trip to Iran from where he was allegedly kidnapped by the Pakistani authorities.
