Ajmal Kasab, seconds before he was to be hanged, offered prayer to Allah, the God. The prayer, as reported, did include his humble submission to Allah with his utterance that he would never again commit such a heinous crime in his next birth. Islam has nothing like any faith in one’s next birth, as they believe that it is only on the doom’s day, the day of Qayamat as they call it, that all the dead bodies rise from their graves and all of them are produced before the Allah for His judgement on their doings during their life time. In no religion, their God permits killing of innocent people, and what judgement would be given by Him in his case, only He knows. It can be any punishment but He would certainly not absolve him of the sins he heinously committed on this earth. Remembering God in the times of trouble is a normal inclination for every one, and this is what Kasab too did before he was hanged. This was the moment when he must have realised to his inner conscience what causing death to others means. Good that he offered prayers, but read in the background of death penalty for him, his prayers were nothing but stutters of oracle in travail. Friend or foe, India has a culture to offer peace to the departed soul when they die, and let the same thing be done in his case also even though he did not deserve it.
