India reacted strongly to the case and said that it would to go to any extent to save Jadhav.
"Pakistan is shelf shocked with the decision of the worldwide court of justice". "Anything said by the politicians must always safeguard the national interests", he said.
The PPP lawmaker also criticized Home Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and regarded him as a person with ill rationale.
Khan said certain elements are on the payroll of "our enemies" and receiving funds from them to stoke anarchy and unrest in the country.
"Pakistan was set to re-challenge the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice after it granted injunction on Thursday on an Indian plea to stay Jadhav's execution", said Dunya News.
Jadhav's arrest and the subsequent death sentences raised hackles in New Delhi.
Despite India requesting consular access on 16 occasions, Pakistan denied permission to meet Jadhav.
