“It’s disturbing how Kulbhushan Jadhav’s mother and wife got humiliated in Pakistan and what’s more appalling here is to see the silence of Human Rights activists, liberals and people from my film fraternity,” Bhandarkar tweeted.

Jadhav’s mother and wife had gone to Islambad to meet the alleged Indian spy. India has since slammed Pakistan for the manner in which the meeting was conducted across a glass panel.

Before being let in for the meeting, Jadhav’s wife and mother were made to remove their mangalsutra, bangles and bindi and were also made to change their attire.
