The victory of Dalbir Bhandari for the prestigious post of the justice of the International Court of Justice in Hague by securing a resounding two thirds majority in the UN general assembly as well as the UN Security Council, compelling the British Member to withdraw from the race is a victory of the Indian diplomacy and as such the external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and the prime minister of the country Narendra Modi as thiswould be the first time that the important member of the UN Security Council Britain will not represent its nominee in the international judicial body.

Indian nominee Dalvir Bhandari has won for the second time after having been elected earlier in the year 2012. Election as the jurist in this international body is significant from the point of view of Indian citizen Kulbhushan Jadhav’s arrest and his subsequent capital sentence on the false, fabricated and concocted charges of espionage. Jadhav was sentence to death by the Pakistan’s military court but his sentence has for the time being with held by the International Court of Justice after India took this sensitive matter to the world body. Therefore from the point of view of India’s international prestige as well as to safeguard Kulbhushan Jadhav from.the death gallows election of Dalvir Bhandari in this world body as a judge was a great inevitability and India finally made it.

The external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and the MEA has contributed tremendously in canvassing support for Bhandari. It is learnt that the Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj had personally contacted her counterparts in sixty countries of the world and our ambassadors and High Commisioners deployed in various countries convinced their conter parts to vote for the Indian candidate and it ultimately paid. However, on the contrary Pakistan which is neither in UNSC nor has its candidate as a contestent took hell of an interest to ensure that Dalveer Bhandari is defeated. Sources say that Pakistan tried to use the Islamic card by approaching the Islamic country representatatives to lobby against theI dian contestent but failed badly as members of UN representing the Organisation of Islamic Countries gave a huge rebuff to Pakistan and majorly voted for Bhandari.

Conclusively, this victory of Indian nominee for the significant post of justice in the ICJ has elevated the image and prestige of India in the global scenerio as an emerging world leader and is in a way a huge slap 9n.the face of China and Pakistan who.always creaye deliberate and pre strategic hurdles on India’s way, come what may.It’s in a way a personal victory of Prime minister of India, Narendra Modi as well who’d been too mobile visiting several countries of the world trying to enhance India’s name and prestige.

Pakistan is badly embroiled in the grip of fiscal deficit with its economy drifting towards the brink of disaster. After the specific warning of the US president Donald Trump expressing his anger and extreme annoyance over Pak’s unstinted support to hard core terrorists like Hafiz Sayeed, Jaish e Mohammed, Lashkare Tayyeba and Haqqani network and doing nothing to demolish the terror sanctuaries despite its (USA’s) incessant appeals and threatenings the situation has further deteriorated compounded with ban on the usual annual massive US economic aid of billions of dollars. Pakistan is undoubtedly being helped and supported economically by China but the massive financial aid its receiving is on huge interest rates putting huge extra burden on its already shattered economic situation.

According to policy analysts Pakistan is today in deep economic crisis and the situation has become so awry and distressful that in the coming few months it won’t be in a position to even pay back the huge interests on the massive international borrowings whether they are the borrowings from the world bank and other internationl financial bodies but also from US n other countries of the world including its closest ally China.

The political situation inside the country is also in turmoil, particularly after the duly elected former prime minister Nawab Sharief’s ouster on having been involved in money laundering and corruption cases in connection to the Panama papers’ leak in which his name was prominently figured. After being accused by the highest court of the land, the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Nawab Sharief has to step down who is these days also shuffling between London and Pakistan where his wife is undergoing treatment for dreaded cancer.

The entire government is in a way under the influence and guarded effect of the Pakistan Army and the ISI who are considered to be the main forces behind Shrief’s ouster and still hell bent upon to ensure his conviction and subsequent imprisonment for a long duration.

The national elections of Pakistan are scheduled to be held next year and Nawab Sharief who was considered to be in favour of holding talks for reconciliation of relations between India and Pakistan has been pre conspiratorially captured by the Pak Army and ISI inorder to keep the anti India and Kashmir crisis intact by continuing the process of sneaking Pak sponsored terrorists n Jihadies in Kashmir killing innocent Indians and Armymen thus internationalise the vexed Kashmir issue and divert the attention of Pakistanies from the core issues on which its system has failed to deliever.

How badly is the Army and ISI involved directly into Pakistan’s political affairs and decision making can be gauged from the fact that during the recent visit of the American Secretary of State Mark Tillerson to Islamabad the ISI chief and Chief of the Pakistan Army BAJWA were closely present in all the parleys with Prime minister. Not only this but the ISI chief and BAJWA also had behind the curtain deliberations with the US president’s envoy.

To think about the violence of Partition, is to question the very legitimacy of Pakistan.

According to Gandhi, European ideas can produce violence in attempts to recover past glories. In Pakistan, Partition has only become a publicly debated issue quite recently. To think about the violence of Partition for them, is to question the very legitimacy of the state.

Gandhi was right when he said that no peace between the two is possible until all those who had been driven away are given rights to return and compensation for their losses of life and property.

Gandhi and Jinnah had relied upon communal allegiances, to hold the country together. It was not trust in each other that allowed Indian and Pakistani leaders to agree to Partition, but the famous ‘hostage’ theory, according to which a Hindu or Muslim minority in one country guaranteed the good treatment of its fellows in the other.

It has always been the lack of concern of the citizens of each country for the other, that has kept India and Pakistan united. The imperial character of these diverse societies has kept them united, the mutual relations of citizens of each country defined neither by love nor hatred but indifference.
