Amid an outrage in Parliament, India today said it will go “out of way” to ensure justice to Kulbhushan Jadhav and warned Pakistan that his execution will have consequences on bilateral ties.
The death sentence awarded to Jadhav by a Pakistani military court after declaring him a “spy” resonated in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, where all parties came together to condemn the development and pressed the government to take every step to help him.
The government as well as the opposition saw the sentence as an attempt to defame India and to deflect the attention of the international community from Pakistan-sponsored terrorism.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj made a statement in both the Houses, asserting that India will go “out of way” to ensure justice to Jadhav who is an “innocent kidnapped Indian”.
