"I wrote a personal letter to Mr.Sartaj Aziz for the grant of her visa to Pakistan," Sushma Swaraj said. She added that he did not even have the courtesy to reply to her letter.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Monday said she personally wrote a letter to Pakistan Minister of Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, requesting him to grant visa for Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother so she could visit the former Indian navy officer in prison. Sartaj Aziz did not even have the courtesy to acknowledge it, Swaraj added.

“I wrote a personal letter to Mr.Sartaj Aziz for the grant of her visa to Pakistan. However, Mr.Aziz has not shown the courtesy even to acknowledge my letter,” Sushma Swaraj said.

Swaraj also assured that Pakistani nationals seeking medical treatment in India will be issued visas immediately if Sartaz Aziz recommends them.

“I have my sympathies for all Pakistan nationals seeking medical visa for their treatment in India. I am sure Mr.Sartaj Aziz also has consideration for the nationals of his country. All that we require is his recommendation for the grant of medical visa to Pakistan nationals. I see no reason why should he hesitate to give his recommendation for nationals of his own country,” she said in a series of tweets.

Jadhav’s execution was stayed after India appealed against the Pakistan military court’s judgment at the International Court of Justice. He was allegedly arrested and charged for espionage activities on Pakistan soil. India, however, claims he was abducted from Iran. A final judgment from the ICJ on the case is awaited.

          Only Pakistan says Jadhav is Indian spy. But there is no proof. A Military court rewarded him death sentence. It is all bogus Trial without any substance.

                Rizwan, you 10 year old cheap Paki, some of your country people are begging to come to India for medical treatment and some others are staying illegally because India is much better country. This is so clever of Sushmaji to entice Sarfaraz to behave in a civilized manner because everybody here knows he is tribal at heart.

                  Kulbushan Yadav is the be s t Spy in the world. His arrest is a big hindrance for Modi's Baluchistan Agenda of creating a Kashmere there. Modi himslef should make a surgical Strike to rescue Kulbushan during his next trip to Nawaz Sharif's bed room.

                      The crass ignorance of Modi in raising the banner of Baloch separatism without knowing what it involves is manifest. But then what can we expect from a self-declared expert in many fields. There is no plan B! Well done bakhts, Chanakya would be so proud. Paks are smarting from their losses in Kashmir, neither Shariff or Aziz will put their necks on the line for Mr Jadhav.

                        Why is India giving medical visas to Pak? Let them go to their best friend China for treatment. India should not give any visa to any ever? Cut off all relations with those porkis.
