OOP Digital Desk: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Tajinder Bagga, today, launched a campaign over the social media to protest the treatment handed out by Islamabad to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was arrested on charges of espionage at Balochistan in Pakistan. Bagga ordered a pair of sandals costing ₹219 from an online store to be delivered to the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi.
The BJP leader shared a screenshot of the purchase receipt on social media and urged people to do the same. Everyone should order a pair of sandals for Pakistan because they want to be treated that way, he wrote on Twitter.
It may be recalled that Kulbhushan’s wife Chetna and mother Avanti were allowed to meet him on 25 December. The meeting was held in a glass-partitioned cabin and that too after the two women were made to change their clothes. Pak foreign ministry officials confiscated Chetna’s shoes on “security grounds.” The officials claimed that they detected some metallic object in her shoes. Both women were asked to remove their mangalsutras (wedding chain) as well.
Many Indians responded to Bagga’s appeal and ordered sandals with the Pakistan High Commission as the delivery address.
Islamabad has constantly claimed that Kulbhushan Jadhav was a serving commander of Indian Navy and was involved in various subversive activities in Pakistan as an R&AW agent.
