It is never too late to mend:


Afzal Guru is hanged:

Daniel comes to judgement and the prime accused of the terror attack on the Parliament of the country, Afzal Guru, was hanged on Saturday, the 9th February’2013, around 8 years after the incident. He showed no signs of any remorse while being hanged, a committed killer as he was. It was nearly a week before hanging that the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, had rejected his mercy petition followed by necessary instructions as from the Home Ministry to execute the order. The adage reading like “Der aayad, durust aayad” (It is never too late to mend) quite applies to the case, and some thing that should have been done much earlier has at least been done now sending a clear message to the world as a whole that India is not a country to tolerate terrorism. This is a delayed message but is meaningful still.

The issue of the type like this is normally not supposed to form any political agenda and requires to be dealt with in an impartial manner much above any politics. It is a different matter that in India nothing moves without some politics or the other. As highlighted by the media, the news says that a great weapon of attack in the armoury of the BJP against the Congress has now been snatched away by the ruling collision after hanging Afzal Guru preceded by hanging of Ajmal Amir Kasab. There are also the talks that these decisions have been taken with a view to appeasing the electorate for the purpose of elections due just the next year. Whatever it is, the fact remains that the people of the country feel happy and satisfied with the punishment awarded to both Ajmal Amir Kasab and Afzal Guru, and their feelings as such have to be read in an exclusive context of the country’s interest as a whole rising above any kind of political manoeuvrings.

  3. I AM PLEASED WITH THE WAY THINGS TURNED OUT FOR AFZAL GURU AND THAT FINALLY HE HAS BEEN HANGED ON SATURDAY, THE 9TH FEBRUARY 2013. IN FACT THE EXECUTION WAS LONG OVERDUE . THE EXECUTION HAD TO HAPPEN YEARS AGO AND IT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED EARLIER. THERE IS GENERAL FEELING AMONG PEOPLE THAT THE HANGING WAS A PLOY TO DRAW ATTENTION OF AAM AADMI AWAY FROM TOO MANY CHARGES OF CORRUPTION, DETERIORATING LAW AND ORDER, PRICES TOUCHING THE SKY, TERRORISM, AND THE GOVERNMENT’S INEPT HANDLING OF THE DELHI GANG RAPE PROTESTS ETC. AND IT IS NOT GOING TO EXACTLY WIPE THE GOVERNMENT’S RECORD CLEAN.

    EVEN JUSTICE S.N.DHINGRA, WHO HANDED THE DEATH PENALTY TO AFZAL GURU IN 2002 AS SPECIAL JUDGE(POTA), HAS EXPRESSED HIS DISPLEASURE CALLING THE 8 YEARS DELAY IN CARRYING OUT THE FIAT OF THE SUPREME COURT AS “HUNDRED PERCENT FAILURE OF THE POLITICAL CLASS”.

    HOWEVER, PEOPLE ARE HAPPY AND SATISFIED WITH THE HANGING OF BOTH KASAB AND AFZAL GURU. THIS MAY NOT CHANGE THEIR OPINION OF THE GOVERNMENT IN ANY WAY, AS THESE SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED AS A ROUTINE MATTER.

  4. Violence has never bought about a satisfactory change in society. In fact, it is fair to say violence; just begets more violence. Violence is used by authority as a means to control and profit. It creates hatred in the hearts of people.

    For any cause, to use violence as a means to an end. I feel a certain amount of suspicion for. Suspicion for what exactly, the violence, is hoped to achieve? How the end is going to come about, when the survivors have enmity in their hearts? Authority is not going to change, from the use of it.

    The only way to truly effect change, is in the hearts and minds of the people. Through the collective will. It is only when the mindset of “the man in the street” sees the benefit of a change. Before society can change. People like Afzal Guru. Even if they are not part of a greater conspiracy? People like that are doomed to failure, in affecting any type of social change.

    There are groups who use people, like Afzal Guru. For various purpose. Never looking for social change. They are used like torpedoes or drones. Like thugees, these hatchet men are used. To create hatred and as a means to sell their products. Whether the products are guns, explosives or rationale, for instituting surveillance on innocent society.

    We must ask ourselves where do the weapons come from? It is well known that guns can be made in places like Pakistan, in the Kyber region. But the ammo? That which is required to hurl the missile. Who makes the cordite?

    It is the makers of weapons, who without hatred and enmity Have little market for their products. It is the weapons makers throughout recent history. That use the easy road. The easy road, of which, most people display. In response to hatred and violence. Not an easy thing to do, turn the other cheek. Much harder to refuse to be drawn into war and enmity. We are hoisted, on our own petard of nature.

    Unlike other mammals, we are supposed to have a well-developed brain? Yet we only seem capable of using limited portions. Unlike most other species that suckle their young.

  5. Rightly said that in the matters of national interest politics should not be involved. It is also very correct that in our country every thing or any step is not free from politics.But who is responsible for too much delayed? Does it not mean that delaying tactis was not free from politics?In my view it is a very desirable question that why the compliance of Judgement of Supereme is so delayed?Mr.Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir is also not in favour of this decision,he says that there will be a wrong massege for young generation of the State.In fact before taking any required step against terrorist those should be punished who advocates for them.

    One thing more is observed that when ever any strict initiative is taken against the anti national activist,the organisation for human rights comes forward immediately
    to takeup the matter in support of those activist.All these points are required for deep study at least on national issues.

  6. What was the reasion behind undue delay in execution of punishment to Afzal Guru,will it be disclosed by any body from responsible?Instead of disclosing the reasion behind such unusual delay,if from any corner the question is raised on the subject of delay the very concern circle try to suppress the voice on the basis that :politics should not come in between execution of punishment in the matter.
    I am of the view that there was no any reasion except dirty politics in self interest & nothing else.
