You see in Kasab's case, its not that his trial is being delayed on purpose. The trial is already over and he was found guilty and was convicted. But he has the right to an appeal and he had gone with that to the High Court, The High Court too upheld the verdict of the trial court below and now he possibly will move the Supreme Court and then with a mercy Petition to the President till he runs out of room for appeals and finally meet his end. And just cause he's alive and awaiting punishment doesn't mean that someone is going to use that for hijacking a plane for his release. When it happened last time, the person we had behind bars was a high value target for the terrorists.
And Kasab, I bet he's rotting in his cell, wondering every minute whether he will live or die. He's no mastermind but a brainwashed pawn who probably cant even reason for himself and he is of no use anymore to who ever made him.
About the time taken for the verdict, How many of us know that the judgement in the 26/11 case was a whopping 1588 page Verdict? You cant rush a case as serious as this and you need to put every single detail, every crime he has committed under the scanner and then make a judgement as there should never be a chance for some other authority to have a chance to find that the proceedings were unjust. Wherever he goes, the judgement will stand as it is and he will be punished. As you all probably know the evidence against him is that hard and fast.
And if we want to hang him without trial, emotionally and morally speaking it will be just, but on legal grounds, It will be a grave miscarriage of justice and non compliance of international treaties. We cant go do something like the U.S did and if we do, Probably it will be the U.S that terms us as dictators or aggressors and they might start running around in Humvees and run our country for us if you know what I mean.
And you are right we need more emergency service personnel and vehicles who actually know what they are supposed to do. But that has not yet happened thanks to the selfish bunch of people who care only about their welfare and we have elected to run the country. (What hurt me most was seeing the wounded and dying taken to hospitals in tempo vans, its so many years after Independence and we still can't provide for ambulances? We are not talking about some lonely village here for cryng out loud!.) And we too are to be blamed for many things. We tolerate- Whatever is thrown at us.
When we all adhere to zero tolerance on all forms of corruption and slackness in the system, Things will turn for better. If we keep on saying, Oh this is India you can't change anything, Our enemies will keep on winning on us. And how many of us know that our worst enemies are domestic? Corruption being the biggest one! How many people die due to corruption and slackness in the system?
13 is the average number of people who die every hour in India in road accidents. How many were killed by terrorists in the last attack? Only 166. That too after those murderous butchers went on a massacre spree continuously for almost four days. I personally feel that I and my family members are more likely to be killed in a road accident than to die of old age or to die of some other reason and terrorists being the last one. We need to reform this country once and for all. Enough is enough and we are done with being manipulated by politicians and bureaucrats. Lets all say this stops now. Jai Hind!
