Congress leader Manish Tewari said today that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should bring back Kulbhushan Jadhav, on death row in Pakistan, and asked if his government has the determination to do so.

Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism in April. “@narendramodi Mr. Prime Minister you need to bring this Gentleman back home. Does your government have the determination to do what it takes and walk the talk??????,” Tewari tweeted along with a picture of Jadhav.

Jadhav met his wife and mother at the heavily guarded Foreign Affairs Ministry building in Islamabad. The meeting came after the Hague-based International Court of Justice (ICJ) asked Pakistan in May to stay 47-year-old Jadhav’s execution.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav from the restive Balochistan province after he reportedly entered from Iran. It claims that he was in possession of an Indian passport that identified him as Hussein Mubarak Patel. India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.

    Let this Manish Tiwari come and suggest what govt can do in a case where an Indian citizen' safety is involved and stop playing petty politics. From what is apparent from the steps taken by govt ( Indian govt, led by Narendra Modi) it is doing its best to stop Pakistan from executing Jadhav. Pakistan is a lawless country where they have hanged their own ex-PM. So hanging an Indian accused of terrorism and spying is a forgone conclusion. Will Manish Tiwari shed some light on efforts taken by previous Congress govts to get all POWs held by Pakistan since 1965 and 72 wars released ?

      Manish Tiwari doesn't look Govt. for bring back him, use congress good relation with Pakistan or send Manmohan/Mani Shankar who hosted Pak ex-foreign minister without the knowledge of Ruling Govt. Why can't do this your own? or you advised Pakistan don't release him if they release their name will spoil as they failed to bring back Sarabjit Singh.

            Pakistan has decided to give trouble to India which is a routine. Mr Manish Tiwari should also outline the ways and means to get Jadhav back. It is the usual game Pakistan plays and how can they be convinced if false allegations are made on Jadhav and he is imprisoned.
