In the wake of the death penalty given to Ex-Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav by the Pak court, Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has met with their Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to discuss the issue. According to TV report, both Nawaz Sharif and Bajwa have agreed that ‘no pressure will be tolerated’ and they have also said that the ‘Pakistan government won’t compromise on security.’ This statement has come after Sushma Swaraj hit out at Pakistan on April 11.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj made a strong statement and warned Pakistan of the consequences of their actions in Rajya Sabha saying, “There is no evidence of any wrongdoing by Kulbhushan Jadhav. This is an act of premeditated murder.” He further warned Pakistan to be cautious of their act and said, “I would caution Pakistan government to consider the consequences for our bilateral relationship if they proceed on this matter.” She had further added, “Will go out of the way to save him, wo poore Hindustan ka beta hai….Hindustan ke iss bete ko bachane ke liye acha vakeel khada karna toh bohot chhoti baat hai, hum President tak bhi baat karenge” (In order to save the son of the nation, we will not only hire a good advocate and the President will also talk to them.)

Condemning the death sentence to alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jhadav, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that the government will do every possible thing to save the former and criticised this move by the Pakistan Government. “He is a retired Indian Navy officer. He was a businessman in Iran’s Chabahar and on a regular note he used to commute from Tehran to Chabahar. It is then the Pakistan security forces kidnapped him despite having a valid Indian passport. I believe a ‘spy’ will not have a valid Indian passport,” the Union Minister said.
