Compassion for Terrorists and the Result

We have been feeding biryani to Afzal Guru for years now and might do the same to Kasab also. Well, Afzal attacked our Parliament and Kasab killed tens of our countrymen mercilessly in Mumbai on 26/11/2008. Many people ask, what will we get by hanging these people? They say, Terrorism won't die by killing these people. TRUE, and I Agree, BUT it is also equally true that Terrorism lives if these people are alive!

A report from Hyderabad in the Indian Express on August 28 said that Mujeeb Ahmed, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1994 for waging war against the state and shooting an Assistant Superintendent of Police, was released under a special remission scheme in 2004. Well, you know it was on humanitarian considerations. He then went underground and, as subsequently established by the IB and CID, he became an active member of the Hizbul Mujahideen and the ISI, and was a member of the first terror cell in Andhra Pradesh.

It was Rajasthan Police’s discovery of rifles, detonators and explosive material in a truck in Ajmer that led to the arrest of Mujeeb once again. He was charged with procuring arms from Pakistan to launch terror attacks in Hyderabad. This
jihadi has now been convicted for sedition and terrorism.

Despite the fact that Mujeeb went back to being a full-fledged terrorist after his release on compassionate grounds, the Andhra Pradesh Government is now planning to release some 984 life convicts, many of whom have been charged with similar crimes as Mujeeb’s. The
Indian Express report quotes police officers who have revealed that the State Government neither consulted the IB nor the State police before the list of convicts to be released was prepared. Like Mujeeb, a person who was arrested a decade ago for trying to carry out terror attacks in this country will now easily go back to being an active jihadi once he is freed.

Basically, We need to stop cheating ourselves by showing compassion towards these devilish creatures.
