India is destabilizing Pakistan?

India has always been responsible for exploiting ethnic fault lines in Pakistan. It is worth recalling that Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian army officer working in Pakistan, was arrested during an intelligence operation conducted in Balochistan in March 2016, and he was apprehended after illegally crossing the Baloch border from Iran. Jadhav was travelling on an original Indian passport under the fake name of Hussein Mubarak Patel.

Later, recorded video statements of his confession were released, where a comfortable and at-ease Jadhav was seen confessing all his crimes of espionage. He revealed that he was working under the directives of India’s premier spy agency, RAW, and confessed about his involvement in subversive activities and terrorist attacks targeting Karachi and Balochistan.

In April 2017, a verdict of the Pakistani military court awarded Jadhav a death sentence after holding him responsible for espionage and subversive activities.

Jadhav later filed a clemency petition before the Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and his plea for mercy is still pending before the Army Chief.

India then approached the International Court of Justice to file a case against Pakistan for not providing Jadhav with consular access. Pakistan then implemented what the ICJ had said. India was not only exposed before the world but also the ICJ did not ask Pakistan to release the spy.
