What is the new video about?
In a new video released by Pakistan on Thursday, former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav made several dubious claims, even claiming that Indian Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh had threatened his mother Avanti and his wife Chetna during their visit to Islamabad. Jadhav claimed he heard Singh accompanying his family members and shouting at his mother and wife. Jadhav claimed he saw “fear” in their eyes and his mother looked “scared” during the meeting.
“I saw fear in her (mother) eyes, the Indian diplomat shouted at my mother as soon as she got out, I saw him screaming and shouting at her, this [meeting] was a positive gesture so she [my mother] could be happy and I could be happy, “said Jadhav. Jadhav also said his mother was happy to see him healthy.
“I said, do not worry, Mom, I’ll take care of myself, you do not hurt me, they do not even touch me …” he heard in the video saying. He said his mother thought he was in good health after seeing him. He went on to claim that he was still a NCO of the Indian Navy.
What was in the previous video?
On December 25, Jadhav met his family members in Islamabad for the first time since his arrest and subsequent conviction for espionage. After the meeting, the MOFA released a new video with Jadhav in which he thanked the Pakistani government for allowing him to meet with his family. “I asked for a meeting with my wife and mother and I’m grateful to the Govet of Pakistan for this great gesture,” he was quoted by ANI.

How is India responding to the new video?
The MEA said such “propagandistic” exercises had no weight and advised her to fulfill her “international obligations”. Pakistan is simply continuing its practice of making forced statements about video, and it’s time for them to realize that such propaganda exercises simply have no credibility, “the MEA said in a brief statement.
She added, “The stubbornness of a captive under duress attesting to his own well-being while muttering allegations from his captors clearly makes no comment, and Pakistan is best advised to fulfill its international obligations, be it in relation to consular ones Relations or UNSC Resolutions 1267 and 1373 on terrorism, and the continued violation of the human rights of an Indian citizen. ”
Meanwhile, Congressman Shashi Tharoor told ANI, “This is cruel, inhuman, and very disappointing, and a civilized state can never indulge in such behavior.”
Jadhav was sentenced to death in April by a Pakistani military court for espionage and terrorism. In May, India relocated the International Court of Justice (ICJ). A 10-member bank of the ICJ on 18 May detained Pakistan from executing Jadhav until the case was decided. It is expected that another hearing will take place in March or April of this year.
