No it should not be abolished. Why should govt. bear a criminal till his life time? How can he be useful to the society by living behind the bars? They are as good as dead for the society if the imprisonment is for the whole life. Abolishing it will increase the load on the exchequer.

Historically India had caste system, effort are on to put an end to it. Historically women were considered a weaker gender, now effort are on to bring about a sense of equality among gender. Historically we have customs like dowry, polygamy, child marriage etc. Effort have been made to abolish them in modern society. Same way if historically we had death penalty it does not mean we should not abolish or even think and talk in terms of abolishing it. One should be open to the idea and should be looking at the pro and cons with an open mind. In fact what is the difference between the mentality of the Khaps and mentality of those who try to justify Death penalty on traditional or historical grounds.

No question arises for banning it....the human rights ppl those who advocate in favour of itz banning are the ppl who just seek cheap media attention instead of advocating sincerely in favour of upholding of the human rights....Particularly those terrorists and anti-socials who indiscriminately kill the innocent civilians for some of their trivial demands must be awarded with capital punishment and that too by a first track court with immediate footage.....
