To Hang or Not to Hang..., That is the Question.

Mohammed Afzal the prime accused in the Parliament terrorist attack case was sentenced to death and scheduled to be hung on October 20.

Immediately there were protests across the nation specially in Kashmir, demanding the cancellation of the death sentence. Afzal's wife presented a mercy petition to the President, and the hanging has been postponed.

This is not good for Indian justice and democracy. Afzal has been proved guilty beyond doubt and pardoning him will set a wrong example to others.

He deserves to die and his hanging should serve an example to all terrorists.
