I don't understand one thing, Why you are in a hurry to hang and kill Kasab? After all he is more valuable alive as he can tell many things which would otherwise be lost after his death. As recently as yesterday Hadley and his network in India has surfaced. Perhaps Kasab can throw some light on that. FBI asked India that they wanted to grill Kasab. Once hanged and dead he will be soon forgotten (or not forgotten) but would be absolutely uselessly lying and rotting in a grave. We must trust the authorities to decide when he should be hanged. What else?

Answer #1.

I think there is nothing so strange or ironical about the situation of Kasab. Since the investigations are still going on, and there is a chance that anti national elements will try to harm kasab to save their faces, we only need to protect him and protect him to the best of our ability. To me, the situation of Afzal Guru is more ironical than that of Kasab. But that is how our system works.

Answer #2.

I am living in Mumbai since last few months and today I went to The Leopold cafe which was reconstructed and opened soon after the attacks. Same is the story of The Taj hotel. The crisis management team of the Tata group is amazingly strong but, what about the crisis management of the Indian and the state government. People still feel unsafe. The scars are very much open and we have done very little. We still have no preventive measures worth the name, no solid steps against terrorism... But yes, we are expert in one thing, making loud noise. It is shameful on the pa ...more

Sumitha, perhaps I disagree with you on this point. When Kasav is an under trial prisoner he is supposed to have full security which is applicable to other inmates of a jail. It is the Judiciary which gives him protection. How do you feel if a prisoner is pecked always by outside people. We need to hold our patience and wait for the outcome the judicial process. It is easy to bring end to a life, but an alive captive gives more clues and leverage than a dead one. See, Saddam Hossain got top security till he was hanged.

Dear Sumitha,
In many of my answers, I have mentioned that Indian judicial system is slow, prone to corruption, takes ages in pronouncing guilty a guilty and an honest an honest. Our history of judicial system is well known. The preparators of parliament attack, the bomb blasts at several places in our country, several financial reported corruption have taken ages and not many culprits have been brought to the book till date. Many are scott free. Kasab may live some more days for sure. Trust our judiciary ! ( I am sick mentioning our judiciary, uukk ! Thuu ! ).
Like always, our preparedness fell short of crooked's imagination on that eventual day. No preparation is best preparation to counter those sort of attacks, as places and targets are unknown. Hence, when public is alert and reports such activities, only then we can reduce the risk of being a target. Public participation and their being cautious is of utmost urgency now a days.

People will like the sight of a terrorist being brutally murdered in public. But, when viewed in the point of view people responsible for security of public and nation things might be different. Getting maximum data from a culprit will be their motive. Especially after the fresh leads on some terror plotters, they can extract more from Kasab.

Expecting 100% security is like insisting on going to Delhi from Mumbai in the shortest possible theoretical distance. If A decides to kill B today, don't think any sort of security will help B if he is a common human. Think of A then, who don't care whether he/she will need to live after killing B. Sure that security agencies have learnt lot of lessons from such incidents, but that alone will not guarantee us a non-repeat of 26/11. Lot of social and economical factors involved in evolution of terrorism and crime.

It is ironic but it is a necessity for which crores have to be spent. The one other parallel being the Guantanamo Bay Recreation centre for those who were captured in Afghanistan during the invasion to dislodge the Taliban Govt. Kasab is the only live accused in the whole episode, rest of the case being dependent on collated information from the various inputs of intelligence agencies which can always be interpreted either way, in legal terms. A person who has been captured on camera as he went about the killing spree and finally physically captured after being fatally shot during their attempt to escape the scene.

He is not a mere Kasab or individual. He represents the machinations of the Pakistani Govt and its various militant terrorist cohorts whose sole aim is to cause mayhem and bloodshed against the people of the country and the nation as a whole. He is thus more than a mere individual and for that we need to keep him secure from any attempt to eliminate him. His importance is ...more
