Sarabjit's plea rejected, why we are defending Kasab?
June 24, 2009 3:03am CST
Today Pakistani court has upheld Sarabjit's death sentence as his lawyer was not present in court. This lawyer was taking money from his family to defend the case. Then Pakistan took advantage of this.Why we are defending on taxpayer's money Kasab, who has killed so many people? why there is any judgement when he is caught red handed on camera with ample proofs? Again it emphasizes we are just a soft nation.

That happens only in India because we call ourselves peace lovers. I become mad when I hear such things. Sarabjith was a suspect in Lahore bomb blasts but Kasab is the one who killed so many people merciless. All the people in India has seen the video of Kasab holding the AK 47 and killing people at CST. Still the f***ing lawyers want to give him fair trial. Just because they want to publicity and money, they are delaying the process and collecting the evidence. Who has not seen him on Video? Even Kasab laughs for this in the court. Is't it a shame on us? Where are we? When you are hit by somebody, you have to hit back. If we do not hit back and keep accepting the hit, it is not peace loving, it is something else.

‘When you are hit by somebody, you have to hit back…’ until and unless we shed our hypocritical selflessness (which in any case has little relevance in today’s cut-throat competitive world) and deal with the practical world in a matured way, we will never be able to come up to the league of leading nations! We will always be humiliated and crushed by even the smallest nations just because we want to ‘show off’ our magnanimity! I think we have really lost the essence of what Krishna told Arjun in the Gita…tough situations require tough decisions and actions…no matter who you are dealing with.

Yes, of course we are a very very soft nation…we have always dithered to take hard decisions, whether national or international. More than rejecting Kasab’s case, it’s the royal treatment meted out to him that irks me most. It is as if not Kasab but India is at fault here and the entire world is watching India for human rights violation of some kind, so we have to be extra kind to a guy who’s roamed openly with deadly weapons and killed innocent people at large. Any other self-respecting country would have fed him to the dogs! However, Pakistan now is taking full advantage of the situation and I do think Pakistan govt might bargain for Kasab in return for Sarabjit. As it is the Pakistanis would never admit that Kasab is a terrorist born and brought up in Pakistan (the pure land…hah!)…so they would rather bargain for the life of one of its ‘innocent’ citizens in return for Sarabjeet’s life!

Making his case, Burney said that none of the four FIRs lodged in regard to the bombings contained Sarabjit’s name or his description. When he was arrested on the night of Aug 30, 1990, at Kasur Border, he had actually been apprehended for illegally crossing the India-Pakistani border. After eight days, the police implicated him in the terrorist bombings. He had not been arrested red handed, he maintained. Burney also pointed out that one magistrate had recorded the statements of the witnesses in all the four cases – one in Faislabad and three in Lahore – even though the cases were lodged in four different police stations and two different districts. He said four different magistrates should have recorded the statements. Not one of the statements recorded in front of the magistrate was taken under oath. Sarabjit had not been produced in an identity parade in front of a magistrate. Instead, he was brought in front of witnesses, without a magistrate present, and the police informed the witnesses that he was the culprit – just as Shaukat Salim, a key witness in the case had said.

Pakistan has always been playing hide and seek on Sarabjit case. Whenever they are in a tight spot, they go back on the word. Previously they used Sarabjit case to delay the afzal guru hanging. now they are using the same to delay, probably to delay investigation in 26/11, kasab and other bilateral issue. if someone says this is how islamic law is, totally biased to non-muslims there is nothing wrong in it. if ksaab and afzal can be hanged or beheaded in public as per islamic law, it will send a clear message. but UPA government wont do that.
