Our law states that only crimes which are proved beyond any reasonable doubts can attract sentences. And rarest of rare cases only attract death penalty. Most of the murders escape severe punishment in the name of man slaughter, unintentional murder etc etc.As such if we go through the cases where death sentences are passed we can see that such cases constitute almost nil % .But existence of death penalty alone prevents many disdardly crimes by hard core criminals. Raping a child and murder her, kidnaping a child, raping her and murder her are crimes which should never be condoned and death penalty for such cases are very essential. And I think a punishment where forfeiture of all wealth of the person who is awarded death penalty should also be included.

Life imprisonment with permission to meet NO human in his life time is a better option than death penalty (andaa cell).

Those people who inspires others to live a life which makes harm to many people -- deserves very hard punishment.

In certaion cases, It is for the sake of humanity to provide death penalty to a person who has done some serious crime which kills human ethical value system for many people.....

If we see history, there were many great human who killed worst human to establish humanity at society....

Except for the rare of the rarest crimes. Death penalty need not be given.

There are conditions to be blamed to making of such individuals whom we call as guilty or offender(whatever crime they may have committed)........and these conditions are created by we people only especially by the dirty politicians.....the poverty in India and Pakistan has given rise to N number of terrorists outfits, these people kill others and they themselves get killed or convicted and the real culprit get escaped (the politicians).......i do feel for them.......but then violence cannot be justified whereas self protection can be!! Its just the act of self protection
there are so many incidents when the terrorists were not punished and there were tries to get them out by hijacking plane or something........agar koi ek baar galti kare to use insaan kehte hain,aur koi do baar kare to parsehaa kahenge ,lekin jo baar baar galti kare uska kya....use kya kahen???

I think, there lies no punishment like "Death Penalty" in the civilised countries. Better to stick with life long imprisonment in liue of it.

If justice is 100% fool proof, then death penalty is justifiable... because once executed, we have no power to revert ....

"If we design a legal system that will be so generous to the suspect that there is absolutely no possibility of unjustly convicting that one out of ten thousand defendants who, in spite of overwhelming evidence, is really innocent, then we have also designed a legal system that is utterly incapable of convicting the other 9999 about whose guilt there is no mistake." ---- G. Edward Griffin.Many of the same people who have been telling us for years that IQ and other mental test scores are not really valid, when it comes to determining people's "real" ability to do academic work, have now turned around 180 degrees and made a low IQ score an exemption from paying the price for killing a fellow human being.Those of us who favor death for murderers rely on history, on common sense, on an instinctive sense of fairness, and on a moral tradition stretching back to Sinai. But in our time as in all times, there are those who would rather let evildoers get away with murder. The debate goes on.
