Hang Afzal? 'Secular' concerns
How cute can this get ? Congies, NC, PDP and assorted jihadis all want to save the terrorist.


<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Post-Friday prayer protests turned violent in Srinagar as angry protestors demanding Afzal Guru's release, who has been given the death sentence in the Parliament attack case, resorted to heavy stone pelting.

A Delhi court had on September 26 ordered Afzal to be hanged till death in Tihar jail on October 20 for his role in the December 13, 2001, terror attack on Indian Parliament.

Hundreds of youths gathered outside mosques in various localities of downtown Srinagar after the Friday prayers and held protests.

As police intervened to disperse the slogan-shouting crowds, they resorted to heavy stone pelting following which police had to use teargas and baton charges to disperse them.

Widespread protests forced the authorities to increase deployments around sensitive installations.

The police had a busy time trying to restore order and ensure that the crowds did not indulge in largescale violence.

Teargas and baton charges were extensively used on Friday.

Around 6,000 locals marched in Anantnag town carrying banners in favour of Afzal Guru.

"Hang all Kashmiris or release Afzal," said the banners carried by protestors in Anantnag town where the procession was led by south Kashmir chief priest Mirwaiz Qazi Yasir.

Protest reports also poured in from Afzal's native town Sopore and the adjoining district headquarters of Baramulla where hundreds of locals shouted slogans demanding reversal of Afzal's hanging order.

In the central Kashmir town of Budgam hundreds of protestors marched peacefully through the town demanding Guru's release.

Meanwhile, Congress on Friday sought to distance itself from Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad's plea for mercy to Afzal.

"I am neither endorsing, nor rejecting what the chief minister has said... It will be one of the inputs in the decision-making process... Congress has noted the proposal," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters.

Singhvi, who faced a volley of questions, declined to make any value judgment, when asked whether Azad had "erred" in approaching Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the issue.

"As far as we are concerned, you have to allow established procedures to take care... these are matters which are in the exclusive domain of the President... and it is not for anyone else to opine or decide", was Singhvi's refrain to a volley of questions.

Singhvi dismissed Bharatiya Janata Party's charge that the Congress approach showed that it was "soft" towards terror. He said the cap fits BJP well as its rule had witnessed the attack on Parliament, Akshardham and the Raghunath temple.

Asked whether the Congress party favoured in general capital punishment, he said that the party has not changed its stand on the law of the land.

To a query that Nalini, one of the convicts in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi got a pardon after Congress president Sonia Gandhi intervened, he suggested that no two individual cases are similar.

Several mainstream and separatist parties in Jammu and Kashmir, sinking their differences, have joined hands to seek review of Afzal's death penalty.

National Conference President and former Union Minister Omar Abdullah pleaded for review of the death verdict. He said thousands of people have been killed so far and several others sent to gallows, but the Kashmir issue still remained unresolved and after every killing the scene worsens.

"Our efforts are at present focussed on making the dialogue process a success and restoring the atmosphere of peace and security in the state. Steps such as execution of Guru have potential to squander all these efforts and make the matters worse. We cannot afford to ignore the sentiments and aspirations of the people," Abdullah said.

People's Democratic Party Chief Mehbooba Mufti held the same view as well. The execution will have an adverse impact on the ongoing peace process between India and Pakistan, and the situation in strife-torn Jammu and Kashmir, she said.

Hurriyat Conference (moderate faction) Chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, in a statement from New York, expressed deep 'shock and anguish' over the court verdict.

"Death sentence in 21st century is an inhuman, immoral and barbarous step," he said.

The Kashmir Bar Association and several other separatist leaders such as Hurriyat Conference (breakaway) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Democratic Freedom Party President Shabir Ahmed Shah, National Front Chairman Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Democratic Liberation Party Chairman Hashim Qureshi, People's Conference Chairman Sajjad Ghani Lone and rival JKLF leader Javed Mir besides militant organisations have also 'denounced' and protested the court order.

Government offices, educational institutions, banks and traffic were adversely affected even as markets remained shut in all the major and minor towns of the Valley in response to a shut down call by hardliner separatist leader and chairman of the breakaway All Parties Hurriyat Conference group Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

The frontline militant group Hizbul Mujaheedin, Kashmir Bar Association, Women's separatist group Dukhtaran-e-Millat and other separatist groups supported the shut down call. Srinagar witnessed total closure of markets, educational institutions and banks while attendance in government offices was badly affected because of non-availability of public transport in the city.

Geelani and democratic freedom party chief Shabir Shah were placed under house arrest.

Azad seeks clemency for Afzal.
Says execution during Ramzan will send wrong message to Kashmiris.
Says peace process will be affected.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has sought Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's intervention for presidential pardon to Mohammed Afzal Guru, who faces execution for masterminding the attack on Parliament on December 13, 2001.

Official sources said Mr. Azad reportedly wrote to Dr. Singh, saying the action would send a wrong message to the people of the State. Mr. Azad pointed out that October 20 was also Jamutal Vida and Shabi Qadar, considered the most significant days during the Ramzan month.

Repeated attempts to reach Mr. Azad failed.


<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->The BJP on Friday said the death sentence awarded to Parliament attack plotter Mohammad Afzal 'Guru' should not be politicised as it was an attack on the democracy and the sovereignty of the country.

On Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad seeking presidential clemency for Afzal, who will be hanged on October 20, 2006 BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said, "People involved in Parliament attack should be hanged. It was an attack on the democracy and sovereignty of the country, which should not be politicised or linked with any religion."

"There were about 800 MPs, including top national leaders, when fidayeens  attacked Parliament. And, if the security forces had not countered it successfully, the damage could have been enormous," he said.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Hizbul demands clemency for Afzal before Sarabjit pardoned 

Islamabad, Aug 28: A PoK-based conglomerate of militant outfits has asked the Pakistan government to seek clemency for Mohammed Afzal, sentenced to death in India in the Parliament attack case, before granting pardon to Sarabjit Singh awarded the death penalty here.

"Pakistan should first seek clemency for Kashmiri youth Mohammed Afzal before India seeks release of Sarabjit Singh, whose death penalty has been upheld by the Pakistani Supreme Court for his involvement in bomb blasts in Pakistan," Hizbul Mujahideen leader and chief of the United Jehad Council (UJC) Syed Salahuddin said in a statement.
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Negi kept his promise, died for his country </b>
Neeraj Chauhan | New Delhi
Patriotism was in the blood of Matbar Singh Negi, another martyr of the December 13, 2001 attack on Parliament. He always told his family that he would do something for his country and he kept his promise on the fateful day. 

Negi (54) was on duty at Gate no. 11 in the Parliament complex on December 13. He was a security personnel of the watch and ward department of Parliament. When the terrorists attacked Parliament, he ran towards Gate no. 8 in pursuit of the fifth terrorist even though he was unarmed. For his pains he received three bullet injuries in his stomach and was rushed to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. He died three days later, leaving behind his wife, two daughters and a son.

Negi had joined the Watch and Ward department of Parliament House in the '80s after serving in the Garhwal Rifles in the Indian Army for many years.

Duty was everything for him and when he briefly became conscious in the hospital, the first thing he asked was "Where is my wireless set?"

By nature jovial, Negi came from Pauri Garhwal in Uttaranchal. His family is settled in Delhi for the past 30 years and resides in a Government flat in Gole Market. He is survived by his widow, Kalpa Devi, son Gautam Singh Negi, and two daughters, Usha and Anu. Usha and Anu are married and Gautam, a graduate from Dayal Singh College of Delhi University is employed in the Parliament Watch and Ward department.

"He always taught us that you should not be scared of anything in life and when it comes to the nation then don't pull your hand from responsibility," said Gautam.

After his martyrdom, the Central Government paid Negi's family Rs 10 lakh as compensation. But the family is yet to receive Rs 4 lakh promised by the Delhi Government. "I met Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit several times but the file of the compensation is moving here and there. We did not ask for the money. They announced it and now they are not giving it," said a peeved Gautam.

When asked about the death sentence awarded to Mohammad Afzal Guru by the court, Gautam said, "The accused persons should be given the punishment they deserve and this punishment is well deserved for him." He also added, "I am safeguarding Parliament, the nation's pride, and I would also not lag behind if given an opportunity to save it."
This happened during NDA time now its Queen rule, so for her and p-sec media every criminal is cute.
No news whether Queen went to Ram-lila ground to celebrate Dusshera, before coming to power she never missed and even went to kumba. <!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->
Nandita Haskar of the Geelani case fame is now pitching in for Afzal Guru:
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->There are three principal reasons why hanging Mohammad Afzal would violate basic principles of natural justice and equity. First, the charge sheet was against 12 persons: three Pakistanis (Masood Azhar, Tariq Ahmed and Gazi Baba) who were said to have master-minded the attack (none of the three were arrested or brought to trial. If Pakistan were to extradite them they would be protected from death penalty); five Pakistanis who actually attacked Parliament and were responsible for the death of nine members of our security forces; and the four people who actually stood trial. Afzal was not responsible for anyone’s death or injury. He did not mastermind the attack. The Supreme Court has noted that there is no direct evidence of his involvement. Second, all the three courts, including the Supreme Court, have acquitted him of the charges under POTA of belonging to either a terrorist organisation or a terrorist gang. Third, he was denied a fair trial. The investigation was full of illegalities and the courts noted with concern that evidence was fabricated and he never had a lawyer who represented him. The Designated Judge passed an order giving Afzal the right to cross-examine witnesses but even a person with legal training without knowledge of criminal law would find it difficult to conduct such a trial. The Supreme Court has held that “The incident, which resulted in heavy casualties, had shaken the entire nation and the collective conscience of the society will only be satisfied if capital punishment is awarded to the offender.” Can the collective conscience of our people be satisfied if a fellow citizen is hanged without having a chance to defend himself? We have not even had a chance to hear Afzal’s story. Hanging Mohammad Afzal will only be a blot on our democracy . <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->This refers to Nandita Haksar’s article advocating a rethink on the death sentence awarded to Mohammad Afzal for being part of the conspiracy that led to the terrorist attack on Parliament in 2001 (‘We haven’t even heard Afzal’s story’, IE, September 30). Haksar states that she is not questioning the court’s verdict, only the sentence awarded; yet her argument does not seem to be reasonable. For instance, she maintains that Afzal must not be hanged because among the others convicted in the case, several are in Pakistan and therefore cannot be awarded the death penalty even if extradited. In other words, because Afzal’s co-conspirators cannot be hanged for the simple reason that they are hiding in a different country, Afzal too should be given a reprieve!

Similarly flawed is her argument that Afzal should not be awarded the death penalty because he is not a terrorist himself nor does he belong to any terrorist organisation. Indeed, the Supreme Court itself has recognised this, as Haksar points out. But there is a much larger issue here. Afzal was as much a prime mover of the attack on Parliament as Tiger Memon and Dawood Ibrahim were of the 1993 blasts in Mumbai. Surely Haksar does not imply that, by the same token, Dawood and Memon should be spared the death penalty because they do not belong to any ‘recognised’ terrorist group and have not been extradited to India? 
Mohammad Afzal Guru will be good replacement for Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.
I strongly oppose hanging him, I would like to to turn him into a slave in a slave camp run for terrorist prisoners like him till he gets too old that he consumes more resources than he does work, then he can be put down (preferably through slow torture), after his death if his eyes and kidneys are fine, they can be removed and donated to some unfortunate person while the rest of his body can be donated to some medical institution where the students can dissect him, always extract as much as you can from a traitor, that is my philosophy. If the body is too mutilated then just dump it in with pig skin into a patch of earth and cover it up and post the video on the net.

I don't believe in human rights for such people.

Then they will kidnap a plane and somebody will escort him to GHQ pindi. The guy must be hanged period !!! Why did they even arrest this pig I dont know.
<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>Clemency to Afzal a disgrace: Kin of Dec 13 Martyrs</span>

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Amid growing demands for clemency for Mohammed Afzal Guru, facing execution for his role in the 2001 attack on Parliament, the kin of security personnel killed in the terrorist strike say they feel "cheated" by those seeking a pardon for him.

Sunder Singh Patel, the son of Delhi Police Head Constable Ghanshayam Patel, who lost his life said "After seeing the support from human rights and political groups for a terrorist, we feel cheated.

"This is not what my father laid down his life for," said 27-year-old Sunder.

A shocked Awdesh Kumar, whose wife Kamlesh Kumari, a CRPF constable, was also killed in the attack, said, "He (Guru) was involved in the attack of Parliament. His role was establihed and the trial took place from a lower court to the Supreme Court. Now why all of a sudden, the human rights groups and political parties have started raising their voice?."

Kamlesh was awarded Ashok Chakra, the highest civilian award for bravery.
"I can't believe it when I see and read that even political parties and Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad have been favouring clemency for Guru," Kumar said from Kanauj in Uttar Pradesh.

He said that he felt proud that he was the husband of Kamlesh, but if clemency is granted, "I will regret that she wasted her life."

<b>Send a strong message -- Vivek Gumaste</b>

The clamour for clemency for Mohammed Afzal Guru, the terrorist convicted for masterminding the December 2001 attack on Parliament, brings to the fore a vital issue: Respect for the law of the land. Laws are meant to uphold the basic rights of upright citizens, protect the integrity of the nation and ensure a sense of order. Disregard for laws and clemency for law-breakers will result in anarchy and the nation's sovereignty will be difficult to sustain.

Mohammed Afzal was not a bystander and did not evoke the benefit of the doubt like his co-accused. He is a committed member of Jaish-e-Mohammed, the Pakistan-based terrorist outfit, and the mastermind of a crime against India. He acted at the behest of those who orchestrated the Kandahar hijacking during the BJP-led NDA regime, callously murdering a newly wed man and holding women and children hostage to secure the release of criminals. How on earth can such a person be deemed worthy of pardon?

The attempt to interject a religious element - the execution date coincides with the last Friday of Ramzan - is a dangerous ploy that can blunt the power of the judiciary with disastrous results and must not be entertained. Judgements and executions are not decreed bearing in mind the religion of the criminal.

Penalties are awarded commensurate with the degree of the crime. Dhananjay Chatterjee - convicted of raping and murdering a teenage girl in Kolkata - was sent to the gallows not because he was a Hindu. Indira Gandhi's assassins were hanged from the gallows not because they were Sikhs. Similarly, Mohammed Afzal faces capital punishment not because he is Muslim. Like the others, he is guilty of committing a capital offence.

The argument that this judgement will lead to alienation of Kashmiris is erroneous. In fact, it is a clever move by separatists. If the Government takes a firm stand, it will send out a strong message that terrorism shall not go unpunished.

The verdict against Mohammed Afzal Guru must stand as a mark of respect to the memory of security personnel who sacrificed their lives to protect the symbol of our democracy. The judgement must stand as a warning that the nation will not brook any attempt to destabilise its polity. There can be no two ways about this.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

Of course I googled to see if Arundhati Roy held some dharna or vigil for victims and couldn't find any. Bad google.

And a good reason why she got prize for fiction writting.... a kangroo court conducted by Roy and he ilk found that "whole case is full of faulty evidence and fabricated stories.."

not victims, but <span style='color:red'>Martyrs</span>. They confronted these devils knowing fully well what may happen to them.

Kamlesh Kumari, CRPF constable was also another martyr.
Bodhi, You are correct. Those individuals are martyrs. Their families are the victims. And these people holding vigil for a convicted terrorists is absolute shame and slap on the face.

I'm trying to google for some pictures and images of these great souls like Negi, Nanak Chand, Ghanshyam, Rampal Singh, Om Prakash, Kamlesh Kumari etc and can't find their images. How easy is it to dig up images of these limousine liberals like Roy, than real heros like Nanak Chand etc. Our govt still owes Rs 6 lakhs to other hero Negi (see Mudy's post above on hero Negi) and not one individual has taken their cause against the government.
Now all these are in my opinion is the real decay in our society - not feel-good stuff as put out in other thread.

That is a shame on our country's media. Almost all "NATIONAL" English news papers of India - HT, TOI, IE, 'Hindu' have printed the photograph of wife, son and mother of Afzal Guru on the front page. In this context, NONE have bothered to print the photos of the Martyrs killed fighting these terrorists and dying in line of their duty, or their families.

SHAME ON MEDIA! Open Opinion tampering.

HT even printed an article by nephew of Bhagat Singh and Anand Patwardhan, demanding president for clemency of this guy, saying even if his crime is proved, death penlty is 'revenge and not justice'.

Afzal must keep date with hangman
A t a time when countries around the world that abolished capital punishment to flaunt post-War liberal values are desperately seeking ways and means to mete out deterrent punishment to terrorists, it is amazing that we should be witnessing a spurious debate on whether Mohammed Afzal Guru, the mastermind behind the December 13, 2001 attack on Parliament House, should be hanged for committing an unpardonable crime against the nation. While it is expected of professional human rights activists looking for self-publicity to plead the case for social malcontents who deserve to be put down without the slightest trace of remorse, it is shocking that politicians of a particular tribe should try to slyly convert a court-ordained punishment for a despicable act into a communal issue. The raucous demand that the state should pardon Mohammed Afzal Guru voiced by politicians in Jammu & Kashmir, following the sinister threat held out by separatists that if this man is sent to the gallows there shall be widespread violence, neither does justice to those who died in the attack on Parliament House nor does it strengthen India's fight against terrorism. Worse, it only shows how tenuous is their commitment to the republican ideals of democratic India; conversely, it also demonstrates their proclivity to trade national interest for a fistful of votes. It is against the backdrop of such cynical politics that we must view the mercy petition submitted by the wife and brother of Mohammed Afzal Guru for a presidential pardon. There is no cause for surprise that the man sentenced to death has refused to append his signature to the petition: Like all true jihadis, he believes that terrorism fetches glory to his faith; and, that there is greater glory in becoming a 'martyr' to the cause. He is welcome to his warped notions, and they need not distract us from the fundamental point - he has committed a heinous crime and must pay for it with his life. Nothing less than that shall suffice the cause of justice as well as sending out a clear, unambiguous message to other members of his ilk.

The President has forwarded the mercy petition to the Union Government, which, in turn, has begun consultations with the Delhi Government. The gravity of the crime demands that the petition should be rejected with the contempt it deserves. To even waste time and effort on considering the merits of the appeal would be tantamount to heaping insult on the memory of those who sacrificed their lives defending the very symbol of democracy in India. There is no dispute over the judgement; indeed, even Mohammed Afzal Guru's accomplice who escaped the noose has acknowledged that the man is guilty. Unless the Government rejects the mercy petition immediately so that Mohammed Afzal Guru can keep his date with the hangman, all the wrong signals will go out - to jihadis and their masters in Pakistan. Contrary to what is being claimed, allowing him to live for a day longer than October 20 would strengthen the hands that toil to destroy our nation. In the past, the Government has shown commendable determination by refusing to be swayed by lib-left mumbo-jumbo and despatching killers like Billa, Ranga, Maqbool Butt, Harjinder Singh 'Jinda' and Sukhdev Singh 'Sukha', apart from those involved in Mrs Indira Gandhi's assassination and perverts like Dhananjoy Chatterjee, to the other world. If, by any chance, it is unable to summon equal determination this time, let it draw inspiration from another execution - that of Mir Aimal Kansi, a Pakistani, who killed two CIA staff outside the agency's headquarters. In due deference to Pakistani sentiments, the Americans shipped his body home

I am sorry to say that Prez by entertaining this clemency has spoiled his record of logical thinking. The family members of the martyrs who laid down their lives while defending Parliament in face of certain death in the hands of terrorists; are already feeling let down and betrayed.
It is as if Prez is considering clemency if his body guards lay down their lives in order to save him from an assassination attempt.</span></span>
