Q.

6 Jihadis convicted for carrying out IISC attact about 6 years ago, quantum of punishment will be pronounced on Monday,

will it make any difference even if the judges award punishment, but our timid govt will never carry out any punishment to terrorists who kills/maims innocent in the name of religion and govt will protect them with kid gloves, under these circumstances is it legally allowed Judges can refuse to give any punishment saying that till the past judgements issued by courts are carried out we will not award any punishments?

Tags: money, iisc, carrying

President of India has many important assignments and programes to keep him / her engaged . It is felt that Supreme Court should be accepted as really SUPREME in judicial matters and its judgement should be given due honor without any reservation. In case the present system of merdiy appeal can not be discontiued for any reason what so ever the Govt. should ammend the Constitution / Rules and HONESTLY prescribe a time limit to decide the CASES in place of keeping in pendancy for an indefinite period for any reason what so ever. However the Atankvadies responsible for loss of many innocent lives including those of Police Force and similar other Agencies in countering the Aatankvadies should not have any right for further appeal .

The judges will do their duty and announce the quantum of punishment to those 6 jihadis individually. If any of them were to face the gallows, then the convicted person has approach for mercy as per our laws. This will be again a time consuming process as in the case of Afzal Guru and others.
As to the second part of your question, the judges cannot dictate terms to the government saying that unless earlier judgments are carried, they will not pronounce anyone guilt. This is against their professional ethics and oath of office.

Emotions aside, killing off foot soldiers hardly makes a difference, because these guys already decided they r on a 1 way trip the instant they took up suicide bombing mission. The real culprits are the ISI, the Haqqani network and the terrorist masterminds- who are based in Pakistan. So a solution can only be reached if we mount a strategic offensive- aka do commando raids against enemy leadership targets in Pakistan. But then, if our commandos get caught, we will be forced to disown them. Which govt is ready 4 this? Not cong or BJP I tell 'ya!

Also, the WORST phase of Indian timidity was revealed in BJP ruling when they released all captured terrorist leaders to Taliban Sheraton in Khandahar, along w/a foreign ministry escort!!!!

It hardly makes a diff. if u hang an enemy foot soldier. If u hang 1, 10 more will replace him, simple as that.
