The sentence to death handed out to Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pak military court is a heinous act
The death sentence handed out to the alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jhadav by the military court of Pakistan is a heinous act. Kulbhushan is not a spy but a retired Indian navy officer, now engaged in business. He had gone to Iran in regard to his business where he was kidnapped and taken to Pakistan. Merely giving stern warning of consequences by India in its reaction to Kulbhushan’s sentencing to death is no longer making any impact on Pakistan. India requires teaching Pakistan a lesson, which it could never forget. In convention of all established international laws and even Vienna Convention, Pak military court unilaterally sentenced Kulbhushan Jhadav to death. It is shocking and outrageous. It is also no secret that Pakistan military is everything in the country and the democratically elected government of Nawaz Sharif is a toy in their hands. Though India has expressed strong reservation and called Jhadav’s sentencing to death a pre-meditated murder, it is not enough and it has to take stern action against Pakistan, which would assuage the hurt feeling of all Indians. Kulbhushan Jhadav was denied consular access. India had tried 13 times for providing consular access to Jhadav. It is time for India to wake up and act. Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is a rubber stamp in the hands of military. Everything is decided by Pakistan military and its notorious ISI. The death sentence to Kulbhushan gives clear signal that Pak is no longer interested in improving relations with India. There is jungle raj in Pakistan. Nothing is governed by law. Whatever army wants is carried out without any murmur. When Pakistan military can send Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, one of the most popular leaders of the country, to gallows, what can be expected from them? Pakistan military sentenced Kulbhushan Jhadav to death on charge of spying to show the international community that how India's most prestigious intelligence agency RAW's agent is involved in inciting rebellion in Balochistan. Pakistan has mastery in creating false image of India. The death sentence to Jhadav is against all norms of law and justice. He was given no time to defend himself. It clearly appears that Pak military court was pre-determined to hand death sentence to Kubhushan. India must act and launch vigorous diplomatic offensive against Pakistan. There is no need to improve relation with the neighbour, which is rogue and has no human value. Amnesty International has also criticized the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jhadav. Pak military court is killing one who is defenceless. It should have given him opportunity to defend. Pak doesn't understand gentleman's language. It is a rogue country and it should be treated as such. Talking improvement of relations with it is nothing but foolishness. Our gesture of friendship with it is considered as our weakness. So, it is required on the part of India to take stern action against Pakistan. Whenever Pak commits heinous acts against the Indian, there is very strong reaction to them in India. The entire nation is shocked and outrageous at the heinous act of Pakistan. India is also required to give befitting reply to the military establishment of Pakistan as democratically elected govt. is spineless there. It is time for India to canvass among the world powers to put pressure on Pakistan to defer the execution of the death sentencing of Kulbhushan Jhadav. If India continued to pursue for talks with Pakistan, its image will be affected. India being the largest democracy and emerging economic power in the world, it must assert and teach a lesson to Pak military once and for all time to come. The people of India are agitated and shocked at the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jhadav by Pak military court.
