ICJ judgment in Hague- on the backdrop of India and Pakistan relations

By Sujayendra Das

International Court of Justice, a globally reputed center for placing transparent judgment gave a historic judgment to stay order the probable execution of extradited Indian Naval Officer Kulbhushan Jadab being incinerated at a reputed Pakistani port city of Karachi since pretty long time. It was on 15th day of May, the Court met along with the judges of the said court along with that of India and Pakistan which was also inclusive of lawyers, solicitors and various government officials concerned. Throughout the day the proceedings carried on which ended during the late afternoon phase. The key judge of the moment Mr Justice Rony Abraham in his interpretation said that whatever the situations warranted throughout the proceedings one point became aptly clear at our point is that sudden hurriedness on the part of the government of Islamic Republic of Pakistan does not tantamount to undertake any heinous steps against Indian national Kulbhushan Jadav who was caught napping by the opponent government to completely execute Jadav as till date no concrete evidence could be earthed out the government of Islamic Republic of Pakistan and also hanging at the present juncture has been declared irrelevant as per the diktats of International Court of Justice based at The Hague, The Netherlands. Key points after ICJ hearing of May 15, 2017: There was severe tight roping as per May 15, 2017, hearing about Kulbhushan Yadab was concerned. Throughout the day there was wide ranging euphoria from both sides that means from India and Pakistan. Indian side was led by reputed lawyer Mr Harsh Salve along with other governmental officials and diplomats based in both New Delhi and The Hague. So some of the key features are stated as follow: Indian government placed a demand that government of Islamic Republic of Pakistan should utmost step to ensure security of Jadav. Court should be briefed fully by both the government concerned about the proceedings taken of Jadav. Actions taken should be absolutely informal. In this regard all the basic tenets of Vienna convention should strictly adhered to both India and Pakistan. There are various other arguments can be substantiated as per the judgment about Jadav is concerned. It is for both the cognizance of both India and Pakistan no external interference is desirable. So in the ultimate run up to the game it can be analyzed from close quarters that the probable execution remain stayed on for the time for couple of weeks plus months. Reactions in different T.V. discussions during the same thing bore a reflection of mudslinging by both media and legal personalities of both nations. This columnist has noted the analysis in different English and vernacular channels which was nothing but wild stone throwing from both sides but unfortunate part was that the crux of the matter was not discussed at all. This has made me badly crestfallen. Jadav episode has been such a vital international issue why there was no deep probing done by all attending panelists. That is why it has been discovered with utter regret and dismay that burning issues of the country which later on becomes internalized are not paid deep attention. The opportunistic political classes do always have the temperament to be extrovert as per personal needs otherwise in rest of the time and moments we tend to remain absolutely callous. As per the crux of the matter pertaining to Jadav is concerned he cannot be fully acquitted at the subsequent hearing provided the charisma of Harsh Salve bears something different along with other government officials. Pakistan government will continue to be meretricious but in reality we might have to wander what steps and actions that country uses as key tools during the subsequent hearing.
