India stands exposed at ICJ

72

THE International Court of Justice (ICJ) has reserved its judgement on India’s application against award of death penalty to its RAW agent Kulbhushan Yadav after hearing arguments from Pakistani and Indian sides. The Hague-based court said it would publicly deliver decision on whether to grant an emergency stay of execution as soon as possible in the backdrop of strong arguments presented by Pakistani team that the court has no jurisdiction to hear the case as Vienna Convention was not meant for spies and terrorists.
Irrespective of the possible verdict of the ICJ, the hearing provided an opportunity to Pakistan to expose India by telling the tribunal that New Delhi sent the agent to Pakistan to wage terror on innocent civilians and country’s infrastructure. The tribunal was shown video of the confession, which was available online for viewers to decide for themselves whether commander Yadav is confessing voluntarily. The court was also shown an image of the passport found in Yadav’s possession bearing a different and Muslim name Hussein Mubarak Patel. The very fact that India lost not a single moment in approaching the ICJ to save its spy is a clear testimony that Yadav was a precious asset for New Delhi and sent officially to sponsor terrorism in Pakistan. Diplomatic observers are also expressing concern as to what prompted the ICJ to take urgent notice of the case aimed at saving life of a person who is responsible for killing of dozens of innocent souls. However, the proceedings exposed India’s face and it was quite clear that its legal team had no valid points to defend their case. Pakistani side deserves appreciation for submitting convincing arguments before the court and according to knowledgeable circles the authorities are in possession of enough and strong material to expose India as state-sponsor of terrorism.
