External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday rubbished reports that Congress leader Shashi Tharoor draft India’s statement on Kulbhushan Jadhav to be read out in Parliament. “There is no dearth of talent in my ministry. I have the assistance of very able secretaries,” she said in curt tweet. Swaraj also re-tweeted the news report she was reacting. According to the news report, Swaraj had requested Congress lawmaker Tharoor to draft resolution on Kulbhushan Jadhav death sentence, that will be adopted by both houses. Another report said that Swaraj, who made strong comments on Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence in Parliament, walked up to Tharoor after speaking and requested him to draft the resolution. Tharoor chairs the Parliamentary Committee on External Affairs.

Earlier, speaking to media, Tharoor said that India needs to make sure that “UN hauls Pakistan for flagrant violation of international rule.” “India has very important responsibility both in terms of bilaterally communicating to Pakistan as to what we expect from them. I hope we are putting serious international pressure on Pakistan, because what Pakistan was doing is a violation of international law and that’s what keeps nations safe,” Tharoor told reporters outside the Parliament.

“If you are going to take arbitrary action like this against the citizen of one country, tomorrow other citizens will be unsafe,” he added. Speaking in a tough tone, Tharoor slammed Pakistan for violating ‘every international rule’ in Jadhav’s sentencing, Tharoor called on the Centre to draw the attention of the international community, particularly the UN, in hauling Pakistan. Meanwhile, Swaraj also condemned the Pakistan Military Court’s decision.

“If anything, he is the victim of a plan that seeks to cast aspersions on India to deflect international attention from Pakistan’s well-known record of sponsoring and supporting terrorism. Under these circumstances, we have no choice but to regard the sentence, if carried out, as an act of pre-meditated murder,” she added. The External Affairs Minister further said Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar conveyed India’s position to Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit yesterday.

    So far so good, India has been slowly but surely. Let's hope and try that there is never a war with stan or even with China. Hopefully people of stan and Muslims of India realize this fact sooner than later as they have more to gain and nothing to loose being friends with India. Let us also hope that stan will not play in the hands of Saudis, ISIS or western interest. stan's physical, historical, cultural and genetically ociation with India is a fact and will remain so forever.''''

      On this planet earth every 10 to 15 years two countries are fighting major war with each other and the USA has always been there before during and after and for both countries and these countries have never fared well. USA/British must have war to battle test their new weapons as in all previous wars to keep their currency, economy and military superior and to make sure no country ever dare to rise up to their level. Historically the USA/British been at odds with India Be it military, science, technology or space or with any progress or development.

        Despite the proven fact of stan being epicenter of all terrorism against India and in the World, USA has soft corner for stan and aiding billions and weapons in the name of fighting terrorists. Has recently declared stan a major non NATO ally of the USA by the USA itself. Now NATO is group of European countries, created against soviets fear, where if one is attacked all are obliged to defend. Ask yourself how does stan fit in to this morally or physically. This is the only way USA/British knows how to live and survive as they have no moral, only vital national interest which is to divide destroy and conquer, where each poor country is on their own but these warmongers own everything just like in Zimbabwe, at their peril and mercy.

          '''The USA is most interested in pushing for eventual war between India and stan whenever if it ever takes place. India must not let this happen at any cost. No doubt India will win, but the goal is to push India back to the stage of 1947. (A barren desert land when British left.) Only this time four times bigger po tion, would add hundreds of billions dollars foreign debt, destro military will need billions more to rebuild, private foreign investment will dry out, destro economy will have to borrow billions more from who else but IMF and World Bank headed by the USA. No country has ever paid up these loans, bankruptcy and surrendering to their terms will be the only option. Further devaluation of ones currency, Raising prices of staple and common goods an economic suicide.These banks are economic weapons.

            Do we know our enemy ! We don`t even know who our friends are. It`s the Enemy`s enemy is my friend doing the round. Age old DIVIDE-DESTROY-CONQUER working at its best. Although the fault is our own, With all the wealth of wisdom in our ancient scripture, We never bother to look in to learn any or much less preserving for future generation. Wars are won on STRENGTH not Spiritually. I couldn`t fathom why we always refuse to learn from history or our own mistakes.
