Aziz: No order by ICJ on Jadhav's consular access

Share

Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has said the government and Pakistan Army will fight the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav in International Court of Justice (ICJ). "We can give them refuge here", Jha said.

Jadhav was convicted of espionage and sentenced to death by Pakistan, following which India took the case to the United Nations court.

He said Pakistan has given shelter to many "so-called Islamic terror groups" and that it should first state which portion of the Holy Quran says that terror be spread. Pakistan risks global condemnation if it violates the ICJ order now and hangs Jadhav. He has been booked for illegal entry and stay in the country under the Foreigners Act 1946 and sent to jail on judicial remand, the daily added. "Pakistan had only five days to prepare its case", he said.

The Shiv Sena today asked the government not to get over excited over the ruling given by the International Court of Justice in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case until the Indian national is brought back home safely. "By going to the ICJ we may have opened up a Pandora's box", he wrote. "I never said this as the forum for Kashmir is UN Security Council", he said. "This was a game which started after Jindal's visit to Pakistan", she said.

He said Jadhav has confessed his role in terrorism across the country and "there is no confusion about this". The decision to appoint Khawar Qureshi was endorsed by all. "We will go with a strong team in the next hearing", he added.

Stunned at the setback, the Nawaz Sharif government facing enormous pressure over the fiasco, Pakistan will constitute a new team of lawyers to "vigorously" present its case.

Their comments came after ICJ stayed Jadhav's execution and also endorsed Indian request for consular access to him.

Mr. Katju was quoted as saying in a social media post, "People are gloating over India's victory before the ICJ regarding Kulbhushan Jadhav".
