Pakistan treated terrorist as a terrorist, says SP’s Naresh Agarwal on Kulbhushan Jadhav issue

Justifying the treatment meted out to Jadhav and his family in Pakistan, Senior Samajwadi Party leader Naresh Agarwal said that Pakistan has recognised Jadhav as a terrorist so has treated him accordingly.

“Agar unhone (Pakistan) Kulbhushan Jadhav ko aatankwadi apne desh mein mana hai, to wo uss hisaab se vyavhaar karenge; humare desh mein bhi aatankwadiyon ke saath aisa hi vyavhaar karna chahiye (If Pakistan has recognised Jadhav as a terrorist, they will treat him likewise; India should also treat terrorists like this,” Naresh Agarwal said outside the Parliament.

He also targeted the media over raking up Kulbhushan’s issue, saying, “I don’t understand why the media is talking only about Kulbhushan Jadhav. There are hundreds of Indians languishing in jails in Pakistan. It is beyond my understanding why we don’t talk about all of them.”

“Any country is free to follow its own policy with regard to treatment of terrorists,” he said.

Meanwhile, the issue also rocked Parliament with the opposition demanding that the government should make efforts to bring Jadhav back. There has been an outcry over the treatment meted out to Jadhav’s family who went to Islamabad on Monday to meet Jadhav.
