A demonstration was held by members of various right-wing organisations led by the Hindu Jan Jagriti Samiti in central Mumbai on Thursday demanding the release of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav who has been awarded death sentence by a military court in Pakistan.
Organisations like ‘Hindu Govansh Raksha Samiti’, ‘Swarajya Hindusthan Pratishthan’, ‘Bajrang Dal’, ‘Sanatan Sanstha’ participated in the protest, wherein they shouted slogans against Pakistan by holding banners in their hands.
Hindu Jan Jagriti Samiti demanded that Pakistan should rather dare hang the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, and Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim who is hiding in that country.
“Pakistan has always resorted to oneupmanship while dealing with Bharat. Jadhav’s case is an example of this. His case was purposefully heard in a military court so as to refuse him an opportunity to defend himself, and the decision to hang him was taken,” said Samiti spokesperson Uday Dhuri.
He said Jadhav was a patriot who had served as an officer in Indian Navy.
“Pakistan should rather show the courage to apprehend and hang the Lashkar-E-Taiba co-founder Hafiz Saeed or infamous goon Dawood Ibrahim, instead of hanging Jadhav,” Dhuri demanded.
He said, “If Pakistan still ignores our concerns, then India should stop Sindhu river water and close embassies in both the countries to teach Pakistan a lesson.”
