Right now the situation in India is desperate. Even in the so-called woman-safe Mumbai, ladies are being molested in broad daylight. We have all become passive observers even when injustice happens in front of our eyes, because we are deadly afraid of …what exactly? Death will come to all of us some day, it is really the fear of death that stops us from helping out a (wo)man in distress.
I am not in favor of death penalty because the system can always make mistakes and we should not have to lose even one innocent man. That said these folks deserve no mercy and should never again see the light of freedom.
court on Thursday upheld the death sentence awarded to the four convicts in
the brutal gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old girl here on December 16, 2012
that shook the nation’s conscience and led to widespread protests.
A bench of justices Reva Khetrapal and Pratibha Rani confirmed the sentence of
Akshay Thakur, Vinay Sharma, Pawan Gupta and Mukesh, saying the offense
committed by them falls in the category of rarest of the rare and upheld their
“Death reference is accepted. Death sentence awarded by the trial court is
affirmed. The appeals of the convicts are dismissed,” the bench said.
The parents of the victim were also present in the court at the time of
pronouncement of the verdict.
“We have got full faith in the judiciary. We had expected this verdict.
But the ultimate satisfaction will be when the convicts meet to their ultimate
fate,” the mother of the 23-year-old paramedic told the media outside
court room after the verdict was delivered.
“Hume pura nayay tabhi milega jab sab faansi par latkaye jaege (We will
get justice only when all of them will be hanged),” she said.
