Pakistani Army playing dangerous game
ICJ stays Kalbhushan's execution

Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 18: Pakistan Army is, it seems, playing a dangerous game to control the political establishment in Islamabad. It will not be surprising if the Pakistani Army hangs Kulbhushan Jadhav to death if it has not done so already.
The Kulbhushan Jadhav episode has got to be viewed in the background of a bitter turf war going on between Rawlpindi, the Army Headquarters, and Islamabad, Pakistani capital.
The men in uniform had always taken a dim view of any effort by the civilian government to improve ties with India. In fact, the erstwhile Pak army chief Gen Raheel Sharif even plotted the ouster of Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif. But a timely tip off from India saved the day for Nawaz Sharif. The present Pak army chief Gen Bajwa is no different from his predecessor. In fact, he is a hawk who hates every effort to normalize relations between India and Pakistan.
Indian strategy has been to encourage democratically-elected governments in Islamabad under the assumption that a civilian government will be more amenable to the settlement of the Jammu & Kashmir issue through dialogue. The other major assumption is that a civilian regime will be averse to aiding and abetting terrorism in the Kashmir Valley. The Kashmir issue is central to the Pak defence establishment and it views with extreme suspicion any effort to improve trade and cultural ties because it feels that India is trying to dilute the core issue of Kashmir. Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent alarm bells ringing in the Pakistan Army Headquarters at Rawalpindi when he made an unscheduled halt atLahore to greet Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on his birthday on December 25, 2014.
More recently Gen Bajwa was upset when Indian steel manufacturer Jindal met PM Sharif in private in Islamabad. Gen Bajwa is convinced that Sharif is trying to strike a deal with New Delhi behind his back. What a better way to sabotage this than by hanging Jadhav? Prime Minister Narendra Modi must have a planned response ready in the event of the Pak army going ahead with the hanging of Jadhav. By executing Jadhav the Pak army will be able to kill two birds with one stone: humiliate India in front of the world and the other demonstrate that it is the army which is effectively in the driver's seat.
In the meantime, the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Hague, today stayed the execution of Kalbhushan Yadhav and it is a massive victory for India and a big slap for Pakistani political and military establishments.
