We are definitely not blood thirsty because death sentence is imposed only in ' rarest of rare' cases in India. Massacre of 150 innocent people definitely qualifies as a 'rarest of rare' case. Hanging of Kasab is not act of revenge as claimed by some. He is given a fair trail including the right to appeal against the sentence. Despite pressure from various political parties and the growing restlessness of people over the delay in sentence, it took four years to convict this terrorist. This is the testimony to the fact that this is not an act of revenge.
Some people claim that nothing has been achieved by hanging Kasab. This has not eradicated the threat of terrorists etc. I just feel like saying if you have any practical solution to eradicate terrorism,please share with others. People are dying to know. Maybe these people would be happy if we keep Kasab alive and treat him like a VIP.(I still can't believe that government has spent over 40 crores on Kasab.)
