India will definitely pursue this case as its foreign minister has openly stated that Kalbushan is son of India. India will go to any extreme in order to protect Kalbushan Yadev. Chaudhry Nisar has rightly stated that Pakistan will decide over Kalbushan according to its own laws. While following the proper procedure, Pakistan has awarded him death sentence. To protect its terrorist network and criminals, India is making all these efforts. This is an interim order and our legal team should work on the case more efficiently. On the information given by Kalbushan, entire India including Indian leadership, intelligence agencies and RSS like groups have been exposed. We should understand power politics in globalized world and make our decisions based on national interests.
