Ajmal Kasab - the lone surviving terrorist in the Mumbai attacks in 2008 was hanged this morning in Pune. His hanging was kept as a secret to avoid any controversies. The Pakistan Government did not accept the letter that India sent regarding Kasab's kasabufication. Hence the Indian Government faxed a letter to the Pak Government regarding his death.
Though many would say that justice has been served to the families of the 166 people who lost their lives, it doesn't make any difference to these families as their precious ones will never return back to them again.
Though many in the social media were blaming the Indian Government for keeping Kasab alive for four years, the Government did its duty by serving justice. I really don't know whether I should be happy because justice is served or should be sad that a Young boy chose a wrong way to die like this.
On a lighter note a friend of mine quoted that Bal Thackarey left earth with a purpose. Within three days of leaving earth, he made it sure that Kasab was finished. Many who do not believe in afterlife would not agree with this statement. But Angel TV preacher Sadhu "who makes frequent heaven trips" might be in a better position to explain this.
My personal opinion on this hanging is that a small branch in a big tree called terrorism is cut. The root is still there. It is a pruning exercise. It is merely impossible to uproot this dangerous tree. But branches like these can be trimmed once in a while to curb this tree from producing poisonous fruits. Kudos to the Indian Govt for pruning the tree.
BTW, Will Kasab get to see the 72 virgins? That is something Kasab has to say! Hope all the 72 virgins are not men.
Kasab could have been trained as a great guy for the future. He fell into the wrong hands and took terrorism as his way of life and he paid a heavy duty for it. There are many Kasab's among us. Infact everyone of us have a Kasab inside us. Let us kill those Kasabs within us before it is too late.
