Recently, India won a major battle on diplomatic and legal front in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Pakistan. Pakistan who had decided to hang Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav on the charges of spying and terrorism.
He was arrested from Baloschistan by Pakistani authorities and on 10th April, was sentenced to be executed Field General Court Martial (FGCM) in Pakistan. However, India took the case to International Court of Justice and advocate Harish Salve represented India for a fee of just Rs. 1 and Pakistan was represented by Khawar Qureshi, a British lawyer of Pakistani origin.
After days of hearing, on May 18, Judge Ronny Abraham announced its verdict of unanimously staying the execution of Jadhav. This was a big triumph for India on international stage and it was lauded by one and all, especially by our cricketing fraternity.
Former India player Mohammad Kaif also tweeted his joy and pride over the verdict, but some trolls from our neighbor country decided to teach religion to Kaif over this matter and Kaif responded brilliantly to him.
