Two days after International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordered a stay on former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence, former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf reacted strongly against the court’s verdict. Speaking to Pakistan’s ARY news, Musharraf said that Jadhav is a bigger culprit than 2008 Mumbai attack terrorist Ajmal Kasab. “Kasab was just a pawn. Jadhav, on the other hand, was fueling terrorism by involving dozens of people in terrorism activities. Who is the bigger culprit?” the ex-Pakistan Army General was quoted saying.

“Jadhav is obviously ten times bigger culprit than Kasab. Dunno how many people he might have gotten killed through bomb blasts and sabotage activities,” Musharraf said.

He further went on to criticise Pakistan’s decision to appear at ICJ after India decided to file the case at the international court. “We should not have appeared at ICJ. We should have stood firm on our position that the matter is a security issue,” he said. He further added that no one should be given the right to decide Pakistan’ security matters. “No one has the right to decide our security issues or advice us on it. It is our internal matter,” he said.

During the interview, Musharraf also cited a case of 1982 at ICJ, in which two Germans, who were scheduled to be given capital punishment in US, were executed even after the case went to the international court. “ICJ, UN, ye jo international organisations hai, jiski marzi hoti hai inki baat maan leta hai, jink marzi hoti hai nahi maanta hai (Countries follow or deny orders issued by international organisations such as ICJ and UN as per their own convenience),” he said.

Jadhav was given a death sentence by a Pakistan military court on charges of espionage. India denied that Jadhav ever worked as a spy and took the case to ICJ this month. The international court ruled in favour of India, issuing a stay on Jadhav’s execution until the final verdict.

    Parvez Musharraf is one of the biggest culprits in the history of India- stan relations. He triggered the Kargil war. He was the one under whose careful supervision our Indian soils had been clandestinely targeted (Taj Hotel and Mumbai massacre in 2008). Who is saying this? Musharraf? He does not deserve to even live. That entire country deserves a severe punishment- something that the world will remember forever. They think they can target Indians either by sneaking into our soils and kil our jawans or by targeting our army bases and bombing over there. They do not have this much mettle in them that they can face us.They were defeated in the 1971 war, the same happened back in the 60's and in 1999 Kargil war, they did not even come to claim the bodies of their soldiers. What do they say? They slaughter their own women and children, mind it, children while they are in schools. They are a terrorist state- the most nefarious country in the world!!"

          Musharraf is a terrorist himself. He lied to the US and hid Usamabin Ladin in stan. His entry to US must be banned and I will work toward it.
