Facing a severe defeat from India on the Kashmir issue after abrogation of article 370, Pakistan ‘s next game plan is to approach the ICJ on
Kashmir matters. Whether the ICJ entertains its case or not is up to them to decide, but what Pakistan must keep in mind is that it should tread very carefully along the dangerous mine field that it has now laid for itself.
With increasing isolation of Pakistan in the international community, it has already lost all credibility on the hue and cry it raised for Kashmir and with its continued
arrogant attitude, it might just lose the hold on Jadhav case as well.
With no international backing and the US administration pulling hundreds
of millions of dollars in funding from Pakistan military, they should be very careful of their next step as it could lead to disastrous results. As such the relations between the two countries have forever been sour on the Kashmir issue, the last thing to
increase tensions between the two nations will be the Kulbhushan Jadhav case. Pakistan should give a serious thought to the repercussions of any action it takes as even a single wrong step would open the doors to destabilizing retaliations from India with
consequences that could spiral out of control.
In such a scenario, it seems like a better option to channelize all their aggression and energy
into building a better nation for themselves.
