Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, a Pakistani terrorist responsible for the Mumbai attack in 2008,the only attacker captured alive in 2008 was hanged today in a Pune jail this morning. The news came as a surprise as there was no prior information related to Kasab being hanged. But as the news broke out, everyone seemed happy that finally justice was done. The verdict was announced 2 months back and everyone was waiting for it to happen. But did justice happen?
No. Hanging Kasab is no justice. Kasab was merely a brainwashed pawn sent to kill the innocents for no reason. Whether Kasab lived or died doesn’t make difference. It doesn’t mean the guy didn’t deserve death but justice would have been if the strategist of this attack would have been chased out of their hideouts from every corner of the world and placed them in the most solitary cells for all their lives. Death is easy than being locked all by himself with no one to look at and talk to. About Kasab I would say he was brainwashed with no not much knowledge of what’s right or wrong. Brainwashed about Jihad, religion. I don’t even agree killing him is right. It’s right in the sense that government wasted millions on him. Right in the sense that it made people happy and some got to say it was the win of a democracy,right in the sense a fair trial was done,right in the sense justice has been delivered and right in the sense that it shed the tag that India is not a soft nation. Bullshit. It would have been a lot better had he been interrogated for a week or max for a month and then shot a bullet in his head.
Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital (a women and children’s hospital), the Nariman House Jewish community centre, the Metro Cinema and a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier’s College. There was also an explosion at Mazagaon, in Mumbai’s port area, and in a taxi at Vile Parle. By the early morning of 28 November, all sites except for the Taj hotel had been secured by Mumbai Police and security forces. On 29 November, India’s National Security Guards (NSG) conducted Operation Black Tornado to flush out the remaining attackers; it resulted in the deaths of the last remaining attackers at the Taj hotel and ending all fighting in the attacks. At least 166 victims (civilians and security personnel) and nine attackers were killed in the attacks. Among the dead were 28 foreign nationals from 10 countries
The only justice will be killing every terrorist from every nook and corner of the world or anyone supporting them by any means and getting all the kids who get brainwashed every year and getting them to lead a good life.
