Pakistan’s former president Pervez Musharraf said he feared a sharp rise in tension between India and Pakistan following Kulbhushan Jadhav being sentenced to death by a military court.
“India will create a hue and cry about Jadhav’s case internationally,” he told a TV channel on Tuesday.
In the West, he said, death penalty is not considered a favourable form of punishment and India will use it for Jadhav’s defence at global forums. “There will be a sharp rise in tension.
Pakistan has to stand fast against India’s accusations of the move being of premeditated murder,”he said.
