NOTE: I am in favour of the death penalty for terrorists, regardless of their race and religion. I am not here to make fun of any Muslims, I do have Muslim friends. Please see this post before reading this current blog post. 

            I would like to give my thoughts on the hanging of Ajmal Amir Kasab. First of all, like the case of Jared Lee Loughner, he is guilty beyond any doubt! Kasab was caught on CCTV and his shooting spree was witnessed by many survivors. There is no way; any abolitionists can use the ‘innocence’ propaganda to say that Kasab was wrongfully executed. I was satisfied that he was hung four years after his terrorist activity and two years after he was sentenced to death, I was glad that he did not need to live on death row for decades. 


            Just like Amrozi the Smiling Assassin, Kasab was very nervous and afraid when facing the gallows. He was also unremorseful for his crimes. The death penalty was not a deterrent in this case, as it did not deter him and his terrorist buddies from attacking Mumbai in 2008. The death penalty was justice for the survivors and victims’ with their loved ones; it was also a protection for society, as Kasab has now been permanently dispatched from society. Together with Alwaki, John Allen Muhammad, Osama Bin Laden, Hamam El-Kamouny, Amrozi, Imam Samudra and Mukhlas, Kasab is now a dead terrorist!

            Assuming if Kasab was released or escaped from prison, he might return to Pakistan and give more information to the Lashkar-e-Taiba Islamist group, it will cause more chaos to India. The terrorist group might have held foreign people hostage to demand his release, more anarchy here! Good radiance that he is dead, to prevent all these from happening. He did not die a martyr but died a coward and a scum that has no right to life.

            I agree with Judge M L Tahaliyani that the courts must remember the rights of the victims and not just criminals, meaning that if we care for the rights of the victims, we must execute the guilty. For Kasab’s case, innocence issue does not apply here. What applies here is that he is one of the worst of the worst criminals, who does not deserve to breath, even behind bars. A life sentence is not justice; prison is too good for him, even if it is Spartan condition. Many people wished that he was hung in public for all to see.

           Abolitionists did not have candlelight vigils outside the Yerwada Central Jail in Pune when Kasab was executed by hanging at 7:30am on Wednesday 21 November 2012. They did not carry any anti-death penalty slogans or wore T-shirts, ‘I AM AJMAL AMIR KASAB!’ (See Troy Davis). The only thing the Abolitionists did was to tell the Indian government to abolish the death penalty. However, India voted against the UN Resolution to abolish the death penalty. I hope that they can quickly send Afzal Guru to the gallows too.

Kasab, a Pakistani citizen, was one of 10 gunmen who rampaged through the streets of India’s financial capital for three days in November 2008, killing 166 people. The placard refers to Afzal Guru, the man who has been sentenced for death penalty and currently in prison for the 2001 attack on the Indian parliament. (AP Photo byy Aijaz Rahi)
