Killing Kasab a solution?

 Email  Facebook  Tweet  Linked-in

Kasab may have been the lone gunman to have survived from the lot of 10 terrorists who entered India by the sea route to create a havoc in the city. But is sending him to the gallows the right route to adopt?
I firmly believe that anyone who attacks my nation deserves to be slaughtered, as was the fate of the other nine! But what irks me, or rather irk is a very mild word to use, what makes my blood boil is the way the trial has been projected! It has been shown as if we are playing all fair! Now the death sentence will go to the High Court for confirmation and then an appeal in the Supreme Court will pull on for another decade. If, at all, these two stages are expedited, what happens when the clemency petition goes to the Prez? The wait is unending... For those like Kasab and Afzal Guru , who should have been hanged years ago, they might die their natural deaths waiting for clemency and the whole world will see how compassionate we are! Or how ineffective a system we have!
After Dhananjay Chatterjee, we have stopped! Why not give those who deserve to die, the ultimate punishment in our books?
But we go by those very books and make futile all the attempts at justice for those who have suffered the troubled times! And who gets justice are the criminals?
