Should Sansad Attack Mastermind Be Hanged Or Not?



Mohammad Afzal alias 'Guru', the mastermind behind attacks on Indian parliament was convicted guilty recently and was sentenced to death. He was supposed to be hanged on 20 October earlier. However, following to protests in Kashmir against his hanging and reported plea by Gulam Nabi Azad to postpone the execution, the punishment itself has come under cloud of doubts. An execution in month of Ramzan would anger the muslims besides danger of jeopardising the Indo-Pak peace process was the fear expressed by those who wanted the execution to be postponed. Meanwhile the families of Indian policemen killed in the attack have requested not to postpone or cancel the death sentence.

Ya Sansad Attack Mastermind should be hanged. Attack on Sansad is like attack on India and Indian democracy. So no murcy should be given in this case. and those, that are trying to avoid punishment,are also punished by some fine or any other way. because Attack on Indian democracy is not taken lightly.

Who are these people that are protesting against or submitting a plea? Law should take its own course as nobody is above law irrespective of protests etc. What is the interest of Gulam Nabi in hanging of a convict? Are muslims willing to associate themselves with terrorists? What does that say for the community? Religion and religeous freedom is at its place why are they asking reduction in punishment for a terrorist?
Only a weak, mindless and spineless country will listen to this crap.

Kill him.

Kill those who support him.

Kill those who dont want him to be hanged.

Dont hang him.

Shoot him publicly so that the offenders know the fate of a traitor.

Isent it a mockery of Indian Judicial System to ask for forgiveness in one of the most henious and dangerous crimes commited against India?

WTC got attacked, US waged a war against two nations.

Loksabha, the greatest symbol of Indias soverignity and democracy got attacked, fortunately the criminals wee caught but what is this? We know that Pakistan was behind it all, we know the man who was behind it all, but why are we so much apprehensive to bring them to justice?? Do Indian polititions have guts and blood to bring teach terrorists a lesson?

The brave Kamlesh Kumari gave her life for her motherland. Thats the true spirit of Indian woman. She could have very well ran and saved herself. But her courage and sense of duty made the attackers plan go waste.

It would be a great insult to the soldiers who gave their life to save the Indian 'democracy'

Words are not enough. He should be burnt alive..!!!

That pain will strike terror in the hearts of the traitors.

May Goddess Mahakaali slay the monsters...and burn them in the fires of Hell...and avenge the death of Kamlesh Kumari and her brave colleuges

Hon President should not allow the traitors family to enter Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Thursday, October 5, 2006 (Krishnagiri/ New Delhi):


It is going to be a long wait for Parliament attack accused Mohammed Afzal Guru's family on the clemency issue.

The family has made a plea with President APJ Abdul Kalam seeking clemency for Afzal.

But they will have to contend with at least 20 other mercy petitions before he gets to their plea.

Issue politicised

One of the old pleas that is pending is that of Perarivalan. In October 1999, the Supreme Court upheld his hanging and that of three others for assassinating former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Thereafter, Perarivalan's family began their rounds of appeals, first with the Tamil Nadu Governor Fatima Beevi and then with the Indian President.

"We have no resources left to fight anymore. We have no strength to fight. We hope that the President or Sonia Gandhi will pardon him," said Arputham, convict's father.

Even at that time, there was a lot of politics over the mercy petition. The ruling DMK wanted the sentence commuted to life while the AIADMK was against clemency.

In the end, Sonia Gandhi met the President and appealed against Nalini's hanging as she had a daughter but the fate of three others continues to remain in limbo.

Awaiting mercy

Those three petitions are not the only ones pending with the President. There are at least 20 petitions that President Kalam is yet to clear, 12 of them are held over from his predecessor KR Narayanan's tenure.

The only petition that President Kalam has turned down so far was that of Dhananjay Chatterjee, who raped and killed a young schoolgirl in 1990, in 2004.

The pending cases include those of Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) militant Davinder Singh Bhullar who killed nine people in a bomb blast in 1993.

Also, Veerappan's gang members - Simon, Gnanprakasham, Meesekar Madaiah and Bilvendran, who were given the death sentence in 2004.

The petitions of Gurdev Singh, Satnam Singh, Piara Singh and Sarbjit Singh, who were facing the gallows for attacking a marriage party in Amritsar in 1991 and killing 17 people, are also pending.

Legal wrangling

The President's office says that delays in clearing these petitions are because various ministries and state governments still have to respond to questions on the legal status of the case.

These questions include how the convict behaved in prison, his family situation or health condition.

"These petitions are basically at the mercy of the government. Some of the delay is because of actual procedures, but most of the time it is because of political reasons," said HS Phoolka, senior counsel.

While some believe that mercy petitions on hold mean more time for life, others feel that the agonizing wait is actually much worse.

Yes ofcourse.
that is a senseless question to be asked,i mean how can the chief minister of a state say that ?
Afzal guru, Ghulam nabi azad and also the demonstrators (those protesting in Kashmir) should be killed right in the Sansad Bhavan premises where this attack took place.And if its the Congress's dirty brain behind this,then obviously do the same.
and dont apply your GANDHIGIRI here. It makes NO SENSE.
And if anybody else would like to join them, they should be (killed) welcomed.... indeed!

There is no reason why any True Bharatiya would send a request to the Rashtrapati to postpon execution of a Sansad Attacker !!! It is almost like showing support for the henious crime that was committed.

Ghulam Nabi Azad, Tumache Doke Thikanavar Ahe Ka?

Should be hanged. There is no second thought about it.

How about our beloevd Jawans who got killed in the sansad attack while trying to save the lives of the parliament staff and politicians ? How will their families feel if he is let go ?

This also will give wrong message to traitors and terrorist organizations.

HE MUST BE HANGED....

After the rediculous warnings from a senior person like abdulla it has become an issue of existance of the nation & democracy. if some desh drohi is spared, it will be an act of cowerdness & this should never happen
India has to come forth as a strong nation & we have leave apart our weaknesses otherwise the critical issues like kashmir will never be resolved

If Afzhal is guilt then he should be punished. The Court of Justice has decided punishment “hanged till death” then there should not be any change to judgement because of any fear as Mr. Faruk Abdula described.

I disagree that there will be any religious tension because of this judgement. I‘m confident that my Muslim brother understands that Afzhal is criminal, who murdered thousand’s of innocents people and thus should be punished.

I also request Mr Faruk to show some responsibility towards India and not to involve region into this matter.

If Afazal is not hanged, next time gaurds and police shall not catch any one alive. Would just kill. This may lead to killing innocent.

To avoid this hang him publicly.

प्रिय भारतीयजनहो,
जागे व्हा. रात्रच नव्हे तर आता दिवसही वैऱ्याचा आहे हे लक्षात घ्या. आज आपल्या देशात सत्तेसाठी साठमाऱ्या चालू आहेत त्यात "राष्ट्र" या संकल्पनेला जराही स्थान नाही. आमच्या (तथाकथित) पुढाऱ्यांना नुसत्या पोकळ घोषणा देण्यातच धन्यता वाटते. स्वत:ला मात्र झी-प्लसचा गराडा! कुठल्याही गोष्टीची 'गिरी' केल्यावर राहते ती केवळ भ्रष्ट नक्कल! फारुख काय किंवा गुलाम नबी काय ज्यांना स्वदेशाभिमान थोडा देखिल नाही अशा लोकांना त्यांची जागा दाखवायलाच हवी. आणि ती म्हणजे शिवाजी महाराजांनी जी सूर्याजी पिसाळाला दाखविली. ह्या देशद्रोह्यांना डोक्यावर चढवून ठेवल्याचा हा परिणाम आहे - आज अफ्जलला फाशी देऊ नका म्हणतात उद्या त्याचा सत्कार करायलाही ही मंडळी कमी करणार नाहीत! उठा, आता मात्र सहनशक्तीचा आणखी अंत होण्याची वाट पाहू नका. आपापल्या शक्तीनुसार राष्ट्र्द्रोह्यांचा प्रतिकार करा - त्यांना ठेचून काढा. आपल्या मातृभूमीचे तुकडे-तुकडे होऊ देऊ नका. करू प्रणाम स्वमातेला, गोमातेला, भूमातेला अन पुन्हा आणू या झळाळी या भारतमातेला - वंदे मातरम्।

Why to hang him? Let him free, let him strike back once more, let a couple of MPs die, then we shall see. What these beg headed politicians have to say.

By the way there is a message in this for terrorists, do what u want in month of ramzan and we will take care off the rest.

It is most ridiculous that the president is allowed to sit for months/years on cases of convicts sentenced to death penalty when they seek his most undeserved mercy & he wastes further time by seeking futile clarifications from government depts,when the supreme court has awarded the death penalty after considering all pros & cons.There must be a TIME LIMIT OF 1 OR 2 MONTHS GIVEN TO THE PRESIDENT TO DECIDE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.Presidents are totally misusing the authority by taking their sweet time of months/years to decide on hanging verdicts due to political considerations.Last president vacated his chair WITHOUT DECISIONS,SO THIS ONE TOO IS SITTING ON THEM.LOOK AT CHINA,ISRAEL,MIDDLE EAST HOW PROMPT THEY ARE IN EXECUTIONS.THE SUPREME COURT MUST ASK THE GOVT TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION TO LIMIT THE PERIOD OF PRESIDENT'S CONSIDERATION TO JUST 1 OR 2 MONTHS,OTHERWISE THESE PUPPETS WILL NEVER DECIDE TILL THEY ARE REPLACED AT END OF TERM.WHAT A FARCE DEMOCRACY HAS BECOME?

it is more than high time that INDIAN JUDICIAL SYSTEM IS AMENDED WITHOUT DELAY SO THAT THE UNSOLVED EXTRAORDINARY NUMBER OF OVER TWO CRORE CASES ARE DISPOSED OF IMMEDIATELY.MANY OF OUR JUDGES JUST SIT ON CASES INDEFINITELY ENCOURAGING EVEN THE PRESIDENT TO SIT ON MERCY PETITIONS INDEFINITELY.THERE MUST BE A TIME LIMIT IN ALL DECISIONS SO RAPID JUSTICE IS DONE.BUT THEN POLITICS ALWAYS COMES IN & GONE ARE THE EARLIER DECADES OF INTEGRITY,HONESTY AND EVEN THE CONVICTED PERPETRATOR OF AN ATTACK ON PARLIAMENT IS ALLOWED TO LIVE SO THAT HIS COMMUNITY WILL ALWAYS VOTE FOR THE UPS GOVT.VOTE POLITICS IS TAKING SUCH A GREAT TOLL THAT ALL PRIVILEGED MINORITIES & SO CALLED OPPRESSED CLASSES/TRIBES TAKE THE LAW INTO THEIR HANDS AT WILL & POLITICIANS RUSH TO APPEASE THEM AT ALL COST.WELL DONE DEMOCRACY!
