Fake news can make human flesh out of rara gosht, and the rules for journalism have changed along with the decibel levels of news studios.
The International Court of Justice has stayed the execution of Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for alleged espionage.
The Hague-based court had on Thursday stayed the execution of Jadhav, 46, considered to be a spy by Pakistan.
Pakistan suffered a setback as the ICJ put a stay on the execution of former Indian navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.
Shah, who issued a brief statement, praised External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, her team and senior lawyer Harish Salve who was India’s attorney at The Hague.
Her husband Havildar Dharam Pal Singh, a soldier of 4th Sikh Regiment, was declared killed in the 1971 Bangladesh War.
“This order, though interim, is a very serious indictment of the kind of mockery of the judicial system that exists in Pakistan, ” said Arun Jaitley.
The family source said Pakistan’s decision to not allow Jadhav consular access “farcical”.
Nawaz Sharif, returning home from a week-long trip to China and Hong Kong, walked into a political minefield as his government came under attack from rivals and legal eagles over the loss of face at The Hague.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Justice Bhandari said he and his fellow judges at the ICJ worked round-the-clock all of last week and the outcome was an unprecedented unanimous pronouncement.
ICJ tells Pak to ensure he is not executed until final verdict, backs access plea.
Kulbhushan Jadhav was sized up by the hardened intelligence professionals sitting across the table — and dismissed as a high-risk fantasist, officials present at the meeting recall.
Putting Pak in the dock, The Hague has come out on the side of justice. That’s a vital first step for India — in a long haul.
It can ignore ICJ’s injunction in the Jadhav case, but doing so will extract a price in international goodwill.
Jadhav has been falsely implicated and the sole evidence against him is only his confession which could have been obtained under duress, Nikam said.
