Amid the outrage over the death sentence awarded to former Indian Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani military court, the issue resonated both inside and outside Parliament. The issue will be raised in Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs.
Chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs Dr Shashi Tharoor while talking exclusively to India Today said, "For us important issue is that whole house is standing in a united manner on Jadhav's issue. Whole country is united and demanding that Pakistan should take back death sentence."
'KICK OUT THEIR AMBASSADOR'
On being asked as to what all options does the government have to send a strong message to Pakistan, Tharoor replied, "Our message should be that there would be serious consequences including kicking out their ambassador and their can be worst if this sentence is carried through."
Congress MP added, "We will have to put international pressure on Pakistan. Because what Pakistan has done is not just assault on India but an assault on international laws which keep us all safe. Pakistan can kidnap an Indian citizen, try him in a military court and hand him down death sentence despite no shred of evidence against him."
