Death penalty only for terror? Law Commission's proposal no lasting solution

The Supreme Court had already decreed that capital punishment should be reserved for the “rarest of rare” cases. What the Law Commission is basically saying is that is too fuzzy a definition and too many cases are ending up in the “rarest of rare” bucket even though higher courts eventually quashed many of those sentences. In fact the number of death sentences being quashed shows they are being imposed too arbitrarily. #ConnectTheDots #Capital punishment #Death Penalty #Law Commission #Death row #Delhi gangrape #Yakub Memon #rarest of rare case. law commission

Secular-Left opposition to death penalty is often driven by hidden motives

All said the done, the case to abolish the death penalty is rather weak - at least in India's case. many so-called opponents of the death penalty are driven less by genuine belief and more by political posturing #HowThisWorks #BJP #Narendra Modi #Capital punishment #Death sentence #Death Penalty #execution #Left Parties #Yakub Memon #BJP government

Amnesty International responds on Yakub Memon: Why India doesn't need the death penalty

In India, the risk of executing someone in error is not minor. The Supreme Court has itself acknowledged that death sentences are handed out in a subjective and inconsistent way. Research by Amnesty International and PUCL has shown that whether people are sentenced to death depend on factors ranging from the quality of their lawyers to the idiosyncrasies of judges. #InMyOpinion #Capital punishment #Death Penalty #Amnesty International #Yakub Memon

The Great Indian Hanging: In death, Yakub Memon exposed our enormous hunger for the macabre

On second thoughts, Yakub could have insisted on live telecast of his own death. Maybe nobody told Yakub that his ailing mother won't be able to make it to the 'phansi yard' of the Nagpur jail in time and he was wasting his last wish. #CriticalPoint #Capital punishment #Death sentence #Death Penalty #1993 Mumbai blasts #Yakub Memon #islamic-state #Jihadi John #Indian Execution #Yakub
