Q.

"Does capital punishment to Kasab solves this problem: We have to kill the crime and not the criminal."So says one of my learned friend's here.So he means that Kasab should be freed.I just asked "I wonder if you would have said the same if your son or a near relative had been killed by Kasab?"My comment was reported.Do you people also agree that he should be freed as another member quotes Gandhiji "Paap se nafrat karo , paapi se nahi?"

Gandhiji was an idealist, but we are not living in an idealist world.
The Saudi Arabian government behead people for illicit sex and for many other crimees like being in possession of drugs. They do not care for such ideals. So do many other countries of the world, including several states of the USA.
A released criminal like Kasab, is capable of killing more people. We released Masood Azhar after IA hijack. And he went on to form the Jaish-e-Mohammed, a terrorist organisation , to send killing teams to India.
I know this is not possible, but he should be hung in publc, from the nearest street pole of Arthur road prison. And as fast as possible. The people of Bombay will be thrilled, if such a thing was possible.
We are going through the entire rimarole of a court case for a person, who was seen killing innocent people at several places. It took a braveheart like Constable Tukaram Ombale, to catch him alive. At the cost of his life.

You will get many answers here to free him, hang him or let him rot in jail for the rest of his life. But, none of these will solve the problem which is a huge issue. He is just a pawn in the game, dispensible. He is found guilty so going scot free is not possible.

Capital punishment will not solve the problem...but it is necessary to Hang the B'stud bcuz it will send a strong signal that terrorist are not our guest and they will be sent to hell if they dare to repeat this kind of attacks.

Well if you leave the infected area untreated and kill the bacteria alone, chances are that infection might still recur. It's been a regular tendency of our society and sometimes the judicial system too to show pardon on most heinous criminals without punishing them severely. If left free like that then it will never send strong warning signals to the miscreants out there constantly looking to breach into the country and cause mischief. Also people will loose confidence in the judicial system..you can only pardon a criminal if he/she remorses for what he/she has done and pleads to re compensate for it... but in this what re-compensation can be expected? The judicial system should show by example that they are stern in punishing when it comes to national integrity and security no matter the criminal is from outside or inside of India...

Thing is Kassab got railed and grilled because he came from a poor family in a Pakistani village called Faridkot. How about Warren Andersen of Bhopal, how many fatalities did that guy cause in Bhopal? The figure is MUCH higher than Kassab's, yet MR. Andersen was allowed to walk scot free and board an international flight bak home.

I do not oppose death penalty 4 terrorists but it is sad that even 4 terrorism charges and fates terrorists get we have a rich and poor classification.
