Baloch Republican Party (BRP) member Ashraf Sherjan commented that Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence was ‘inhuman and illegal’. He also urged Prime Minister of India to do everything to save Jadhav’s life. He also said that Pakistan should bring Jadhav to the international court if he is guilty and connected to any terrorism in Balochistan. A country by itself shouldn’t have any right to give death sentences to foreign citizens.
The representative of Balochistan at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Mehran Marri called the death sentence given to Jadhav as ‘extra judicial killing’ and a ‘premeditated murder’.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy has said that if Pakistan follows through such an execution, India will recognise Balochistan as an independent sovereign country. Balochistan is one of the four provinces of Pakistan. Although it makes 44 percent of the Pakistan by land, it has only 7 percent of the population of the country. It has been fighting to be separated from Pakistan since decades, mainly because Pakistani soldiers often exploit the land and people of the area, but no country in the world has come forward to support it’s cause.
Indian Extarnal Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, issued a stern warning to Pakistan that if the plan is carried forward by Pakistan, it will result in damaging bilateral relations and India will go out of the way to save Jadhav.
I don’t even have any comments on this. What is Pakistan exactly trying to do here.
