The victory by India at the ICJ is also a victory of the people-centric diplomacy by the Narendra Modi govt. It is about ensuring that every citizen of India feels safe when they are abroad.
The manner in which the international court tore Pakistan’s Defence is a manifestation of India’s well-articulated arguments at the ICJ and credit has to be given to India’s legal team led by senior lawyer Harish Salve.
It is also a victory for India’s diplomatic establishment that put all its might behind this case. The court’s assertion that Pakistan violated Vienna convention on consular relations also proves yet again that Pakistan has been violating international norms.
It will put Pakistan further on the mat and India must mount sustained diplomatic pressure to ensure that Kulbhushan Jadhav is brought back home.
