Thumbs up Afzal Guru Hanged : Is Congress Sensing Hindu Backlash?

Afzal Guru hanged in Delhi's Tihar jail
TNN | Feb 9, 2013, 08.27 AM IST

Is the Kangrace trying to keep Hindu's in good humour to avoid a strong anti Kangrace backlash in Lok Sabha 2014 due to it's anti national policies?
NEW DELHI: Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru has been hanged in Delhi's Tihar jail on Saturday morning.

According to TV reports, home ministry has confirmed that Afzal Guru has been hanged.

Earlier the reports said that his mercy plea had been rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee. He was convicted for his role in the attack on Parliament in 2001.

A curfew has been clamped in parts of Jammu and Kashmir.

Afzal Guru was given the death sentence by the Supreme Court in 2004. His hanging, scheduled for October 2006, was suspended or stayed after his wife filed a mercy petition on his behalf.

Sources say that the President informed the home ministry that he had rejected the mercy petition on January 23.

In December 2001, five heavily-armed terrorists drove into the Parliament complex and opened fire.

Nine people were killed, most of them members of the security forces. The terrorists were shot dead.

Both houses of Parliament had just been adjourned and several MPs were still inside.

A few days later, Afzal Guru was arrested.

The main opposition party, the BJP, has repeatedly questioned the delay in the execution of Afzal Guru, and its leaders last questioned the government in Parliament on the 11th anniversary of the attack last month.

In November last year, Ajmal Kasab, the terrorist from Pakistan who was caught during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, was executed in a Pune jail in a top-secret operation.

No political party does anything without vote bank in mind - This is done with elections in mind.

In any case,it was long pending.

Re: Afzal Guru Hanged : Is Congress Sensing Hindu Backlash?

Its too late for the 'secular' cong. toderiveanymajor benefit from this 'hanging'.
They still have a MAJOR ACE up their sleeve----
APPOINTMENT OF NEW JUDGES TO THE HIGH & SUPREME COURTS!

Just as not ALL BUREAUCRATS are 'pliable', not ALL JUDGES are unpliable.
It is very very very likely that 'some judge' will find 'merit' in the accusations against Modi "AFTER SEPT. 2013" and Modi's 'candidature' will be in jeopardy---just as it happened with Gadkari !
I seriously think that the BJP MUST have an alternative candidate ready!

Re: Afzal Guru Hanged : Is Congress Sensing Hindu Backlash?

I highly doubt if congress sensed any hindu backlash in 2014 on political front as hindus are hardly united, infact as often alleged, muslims are not united too, in different region they vote differently, SP or BSP in UP not congress

Partly A & B - Cong has deprived BJP of an issue in 2014 elections and let the law take its own course.

Re: Afzal Guru Hanged : Is Congress Sensing Hindu Backlash?

This is turning out to be interesting. The majority of Muslims in India have lost two of their role models, Ajmal Kasab and Afzal Guru. As of now I'm sure more than 85% of Muslims would be seething in anger. Lets see how they vent out their anger electorally.

Check out some pictures (and spellings ).

Umbrella body of Indian Muslim organizations condemns Afzal Guruís execution
By Ashish Tripathi, TNN | Feb 9, 2013, 08.51 PM IST

LUCKNOW: Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan, president of All India Muslim Majlis-e Mushawarat (AIMMM), the umbrella body of Indian Muslim organizations, in a press statement issued on Saturday said that Afzal Guru's execution was legally and morally unjustified and hasty. Guru's hanging is part of the political game Congress is playing to outdo VHP/BJP's Hindutva and security planks, he said.

Khan said "Guru did not get a fair trial in the first place. His repeated assertions that he was sent to Delhi from Srinagar by a certain named police officer in Srinagar were never heard or probed. At best, he was a secondary player. He did not take part in the actual attack." The statement was issued in Delhi and circulated by various organisations affiliated to AIMMM across the country including Lucknow.

Khan, in his statement, also said that it has been known to the political class and the media for years that the public opinion in the Kashmir valley is enraged by Guru's trial and the verdict and there is real risk of the revival of militancy as a result of Guru's execution.

"As such, I think it was reckless on the part of the Indian government to have taken this highly risky, hasty and dubious step which is akin to the execution in 1983 of Maqbool Bhat on a crime committed by others thousands of miles away in Britain but the hasty execution eventually led to ignite the militancy in the Kashmir," he said.

Re: Afzal Guru Hanged : Is Congress Sensing Hindu Backlash?

Here the author says Afzal Guru's case is different from Kasab

Quote:


Cynical Calculation on Afzal Guru to Hurt the Nation

Three things are to be noted about the sudden decision to hang Afzal Guru. One, it stems from a cynical political calculation, one that seeks some gain for the ruling dispensation at the Centre even if it is at the expense of the nation as a whole. Two, it will immediately halt Kashmirís slow march to relative calm and deepen Kashmirisí sense of alienation. Three, the manner in which the Bajrang Dal and the police handled peaceful demonstrators at Jantar Mantar, the women among the protesters being molested as they had been two days earlier at the Shree Ram College of Commerce, shows the state continues to be as insular as it always was and couldnít care less.

Afzal Guruís case is different from Ajmal Kasabís. Of Kasabís culpability in the 26/11 attack on Mumbai, there is no doubt. The debate on whether he should be hanged or not depended largely on the desirability of capital punishment and brownie points for moral superiority to be obtained from making a sharp distinction between justice and revenge. In Afzal Guruís case, while it is true that the Supreme Court did indeed pronounce him guilty and sentence him to death by hanging, the evidence against him had been far from conclusive. It was the pressure of national outrage over the crime of which he was accused that weighed heavily on the Supreme Court, rather than any overwhelming evidence that proved guilt beyond doubt, when it ordered death for Afzal Guru. And this was a major consideration, along with possible repercussions in Kashmir, that had kept his execution at bay.

What has now changed, for the government to take precipitate action? Quite clearly, the Congress does not want to give the BJP any extra national security mileage in the run-up to the major assembly elections this year and the general elections in 2014. Elections are due in Karnataka, Tripura, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Delhi this year. These are high-stake elections for both the Congress and the BJP. Being soft on terror is a charge that the BJP and the Sangh Parivar have been using against the Congress and they have been citing Afzal Guru alive as clinching proof of the Congressí perfidy. The Congress has clearly now decided that they donít want this albatross around its neck. And, given the mood that has been generated by years of right-wing propaganda on the subject, this will probably work out to the Congressí electoral dividends.

But this gain for the Congress would be at the expense of the nationís democratic cohesion. The death penalty in itself is a flaw in our democracy. When it is handed out in a case where the burden of public expectation, rather than of incriminating evidence, is the decisive factor, it weakens democracy. The force that will inevitably be used to clamp down on the inevitable protests in Kashmir will further alienate the people of the region from India.

Clearly, the gain for the ruling dispensation comes at the expense of the nation per se.
There have been protests in Delhi, too. Human rights activists and others, who were protesting peacefully at the Capitalís Jantar Matar, were set upon by a Bajrang Dal mob and by the police. The women among the protesters were molested. This is similar to what had happened earlier this week at Shree Ram College of Commerce, when those protesting against Narendra Modiís visit to the college were manhandled by the police and Sangh Parivar activists. Since a backlash against the hanging was only too predictable, it is amazing that the government did not prepare the police to act with restraint and not add to the grief it was setting itself up for. Instead, the police behaved as if they were acting in coordination with the Bajrang Dal goons.

This once again underlines the cynicism of the political leadership that pursues a goal not of enlarging our polityís limited democratic space but of maintaining its grip on power, even if that chokes democracy in the process

Re: Afzal Guru Hanged : Is Congress Sensing Hindu Backlash?

Congress will try anything and everything to show that they are with the law. BJP and SS in Maharashtra was raising a ruckus over Afzal Guru. So now with the hanging they have no political plank.

I wont be surprised if a lot more death row inmates are hanged soon, especially Rajiv Gandhi's killers.
