#ChappalChorPakistan Trends After Kulbhushan Jadhav’s Meet With Wife
India has accused Pakistan of violating mutual understandings on Kulbhushan Jadhav's meeting with his family.

The Pakistan government on Tuesday claimed that Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav’s wife was made to remove her shoes during their meeting on December 25 as “there was something” in them.
Not only this, Jadhav's mother and wife were made to remove "mangal sutra", bangles, and bindi before they could meet him, the External Affairs Ministry said in a statement.
“For some inexplicable reason, despite her repeated requests, the shoes of the wife of Shri Jadhav were not returned to her after the meeting. We would caution against any mischievous intent in this regard,” the statement read.
Under pretext of security precautions, cultural and religious sensibilities of family members were disregarded. This included removal of mangal sutra, bangles and bindi, as well as a change in attire that was not warranted by security: Raveesh Kumar, MEA on #KulbhushanJadhav pic.twitter.com/K0v4Rh0EnG

Responding to India’s charge, Pakistan’s Foreign Office has now claimed that the shoes were removed for “security reasons”. "There was something in the shoe," Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Dr Muhammad Faisal was quoted as saying by Dawn News. The spokesman said Jadhav's wife had been provided replacement shoes and all her jewellery was returned to her.
Unhappy with this, outraged users went to war on microblogging site Twitter and trended #ChappalChorPakistan.

#ChappalChorPakistan has always been fascinated with vastly superior and stylish Indian products. Some poor Paki cop may have stolen the chappals for his wife back home!
