It’s really hard to understand why the Capital punishment given to Afzal is not being executed ? The Prime Minister’s latest remarks in this reagrd has left me high and dry.I have never seen Manmohan Singh delivering such ambiguous statement.He stated that “law of the land” will decide the fate of this Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist from Jammu and Kashmir -a convict in the parliament attack that took place in 2001. He was awarded death sentence which was upheld by the Supreme Court but since 2002 the execution hangs in uncertainity.
The PM talks about “law of the land” who in the first place dosen’t deserve such soft gestures.Manmohan singh states that“I think there is a law of the land and there is a legal process.In the (Afzal Guru) case the law will take its course.”
It will be interesting to recall that a clemency petition was filed by the Afzal’s wife and so the sentence that was scheduled to be carried out on Oct 20, 2006 was stayed.We have witnessed so many strange developments in these four years that are very depressing.We saw how campaigns were started by the progressive thinkers and writers in support of Afzal. Now the present statement of our PM makes mockery of our legal system.The Home Secretary G.K. Pillai too has echoed similar views.He says that “Afzal Guru is in the queue (of mercy petitions in the president’s office). Nobody will be expedited.”.In other words, there is no urgency on the part of government to bring this matter to total end.Now what’s the motive of government ? Why there is unwanted delay ?
Now let me critically examine the statement of PM. How long will the law of land take Mr PM ? Eight years has already elapsed.So does the statement that law of land will take its own course holds childish.The law of land has already stated its wish via the Supreme Court.You are referring to which “law of land ” Mr PM ? The Delhi government has already stated that it wants the death of Afzal with an interesting note that law and order situation needs to be kept in mind.How can a death of terrorist create unrest in nation ? Among which section of people will it create unrest ? On the mercy petition President went in for opinion of Home Ministry which then sought the opinion of Delhi government.Now look at the attitude of sarkari babus( government oficials) over this issue.As per news report, the file related with this sensitive clemency case rested in dirt in the Delhi’s Chief Secretary office for more than three years.That’s the way how “law of land” works in one of the most sensitive case.One can imagine how law of the land be working in low profile cases. So as per “law of land” how much time the Home Ministry going to take after the approval of Delhi government ?
Taking advantage of the confusion that prevails ,the star criminal Afzal has entered into emotional blackmailing.He is trying to hard to attain the sympathy of his hidden admires.He said that he should be hanged quickly. If that does not take place ,he should be shifted to Jammu and Kashmir so that he can meet his wife who has to spent huge money to meet him. Look at the mindset of the terrorists. Those who eliminate the wives and children of others are so much attached with their wives that they want to remain close to them !!!
It’s time for the government to fulfill the wish of this terrorist.Hang him to death as early as possible.Let’s not waste hard earned money of the citizens of this nation on Afzal to keep him fit and fine.It’s only weakening the “law of land” !!!!!
