In a big blow to Pakistan, the International court of Justice has stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav. Pakistan had accused Jadhav of spying and even termed him as a terrorist. Pakistan even called Jadhav a R&AW agent. A Pakistani Military court had given Jadhav a death sentence.

The verdict drew criticism from across the globe as Pakistan had no proof to back up their allegations. The International Court of Justice stayed Jadhav’s execution today. This can be seen as a huge diplomatic win for India. This basically means that India wins provisional rights to safeguard Jadhav’s life till ICJ hears the case, over which it asserts jurisdiction.

Pakistan’s lies have been exposed at the world stage. The ICJ is also set to monitor Pakistan’s treatment to Jadhav. The unanimous verdict of the Judges in the ICJ means that Pakistan must keep the ICJ informed on measures concerned with Kulbhushan Jadhav.

PM Narendra Modi heaped praise on India’s best lawyer, Harish Salve who represented India At Hague. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had tweeted that Salve had charged a token one rupee fee, to represent the country and argue for Jadhav at the ICJ. Sources from republic said that PM Modi called External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj & credited MEA and Harish Salve for the diplomatic win.
