Pakistan is playing with fire

A military court in Pakistan has given death sentence to ex-Indian Navy man Kulbhushan Jadhav on charges of espionage, but the evidence that has been shown is laughable. The so-called confessional video running to 349 seconds has 102 cuts. In most of the video, lip movements hardly match with the audio sync, meaning the audio was superimposed. The video clearly shows Kulbhushan Jadhav being forced to read from a teleprompter. Despite India’s request, no consular access to Jadhav was given. In such suspicious circumstances, if news comes out of a Field General Court Martial giving him the death sentence, it will be assumed that Pakistan is presently in a mood to spoil its relations with India. The neighbouring country is clearly playing with fire, and Pakistan may have to bear the consequences.
