The bleeding heart "human rights" brigade has commenced its violent ritual of breast beating
to the accompaniment of loud wailing by the likes of Burka Dutt et al. Their tender sentiments of "Insaniyat"
(humanity - insanity?) injured by the execution of 26/11 terrorist
The lives of 166 Indian citizens, according to official figures - counts for nothing. The life of the single terrorist awarded capital punishment is apparently invaluable to these loonies, who are now trying to cajole the all too willing UPA regime - to abolish capital punishment.
Mr. Shinde's perverted philosophy has only one goal, i.e. to secure the life of Mohd. Afzal Guru, the deathrow convict in the 2001Parliament Jihad attack.
Just one question: What took so long? I'm actually surprised that the wailing and breast beating took so many days to commence - after Kasab's hanging.
Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said on Sunday that the government needs to “rethink” its policy on capital punishment.
Speaking at the Idea Exchange programme organised by Loksatta, the Marathi newspaper of The Indian Express Group, Shinde said: “We need to rethink. We (the government and Rashtrapati Bhavan) received a representation from 13-14 eminent Indian persons yesterday demanding a ban on death penalty. There should not be cruelty. They said these convicts (should) be made to serve in jail and need not be released on parole.”
Shinde’s statement comes just days after 26/11 terror attack convict Ajmal Amir Kasab was hanged.
