Federal Law Minister Farogh Nasim on Friday said a bill passed by the joint sitting of Parliament related to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav was not person-specific, it is a “national security” issue and asked the opposition don’t make it politicized.
He said it was regrettable that the opposition raised objections on different issues without studying them.”
For example, the issue of Kulbhushan Jadhav is a matter of Pakistan’s national security and this is our country’s red line.
How do you call yourself a politician when you don’t get the hang of such matters?” he said during a press conference.
Nasim said the International Court of Justice (Review and Re-consideration) Bill, 2020, was not person-specific, adding that “it will be applicable to anyone coming under the ambit of the law.”
Flanked by MNA Maleeka Bokhari, the minister expressed these view in response to the Opposition’s claims that the PTI had given an NRO to the Indian spy.
Parliament had passed the International Court of Justice (Review and Re-consideration) Bill, 2020 on Thursday to provide for the right of review and reconsideration in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case in line with the judgment of the International Court of Justice.
