Amid outrage over death penalty to Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage, Pakistan high commissioner Abdul Basit further added fuel to the fire as he called Jadhav a terrorist who must meet his fate. “A terrorist should meet his fate for whatever he did,” Basit made the comment while talking to a Pakistani private news channel on Tuesday. Earlier, Basit evaded questions by the media persons over the issue of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
Earlier,National conference leader Junaid Mattoo said it’s for India to prove that Kulbhushan Jadhav is not an Indian spy. Another leader from National conference also stoked sentiments after he said that that it is not correct for India to point fingers at another nation’s legal proceedings.
“Pakistan has obeyed the law. Not correct for India to point fingers, being the largest democracy,” Kamal told ANI.
However, Kamal stated that Pakistan is the biggest threat not just for India, but also for South Asia, and said that anyone accused of crime deserve a hearing.
“The government should reintroduce a bill to declare Pakistan a terror state. Pakistan is the biggest threat not for India but for South Asia as well”, Kamal said.
Earlier, today Kulbhushan Yadav’s issue found echo in Parliament where all parties stood united in support of government. Asserting that India is making every effort to ensure justice to Kulbhushan Yadav, Union Minister Sushma Swaraj said that India’s position on this matter is clear and there is no evidence of wrongdoing by Jadhav.
Swaraj said that Jadhav had his business in Iran and was kidnapped and taken to Pakistan.She informed the house that they levelled ridiculous charges against senior Indian officials who had no connection to this issue.
