"Pakistan permits the meeting of wife and mother of Commander Jadhav with him, as a humanitarian gesture, on the birthday of the Father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah," tweeted Mohammad Faisal of the Pakistan Foreign Office.

Although Many Pakistani citizens did not take the government's 'humanitarian gesture' towards Kulbhushan's family in a good way as they took to various social media platforms to raise their voice against the matter.

Taking to Twitter, one user wrote: "A great humanitarian act by Pak! Still some Indians keep crying. #KulbhushanJadhav is a terrorist, get that in your stupid minds."

Another pointed out, "Pakistan is not following the Islamic traditions at all. This visit is only happaning due to the order of the International Court of Justice. On the other hand Pakistan has made all the efforts to not let it happen. Pakistan should be ashamed for this."
