    Tamil Nadu government decides to release all seven Rajiv Gandhi's killers - The Times of India
    Wow...While I'm not completely sure of the case details, some people tell me that there was some doubt about some 7 people here, but then releasing Nalini also who was in the core team involved....

    :facepalm:

    Nice message we are sending to assasins here. Screw with our leaders, blow their heads off, no problem.

    this decision sounds to my ears as anti-national. But then I am not a Tamil. Tamils seems to serve to loyalties.

    It's going to have further repercussions, people are already screaming about Afzal Guru again, next up the Bhullar Singh guys mercy petition will also come up, the list will keep going on. The SC by it's earlier decision (if the president takes too long to make a decision on clemency, an automatic pardon is given) has opened a can of worms, imo.

    I dont understand the election angle....how many people are going to change their votes because of this?

    Besides I dont know anyone who was actively fighting for the release of these people, except certain elements, and I dont think they represent the majority, or are even in appreciable numbers.

    Classic example of how Banana Republic works.

    Out of these 7, how many will become MPs & MLA's?

    Rajiv Gandhi's killers will be freed if Centre doesn't respond in 3 days: Jayalalithaa | NDTV.com

    Here CM Jayalaithaa needs attention and thats why she has decided do something so that the Tamilians rally behind her instead of DMK.

    They have killed the PM of Republic of India but still the greatness of this country system is this that they have turn death penalty into life imprisonment after the family of the PM forgive them and now again it should be on the family of the PM to decide about it and then the Government.

    Life imprisonment means jail term for entire life: SC - The Hindu

    “It appears to us there is a misconception that a prisoner serving a life sentence has an indefeasible right to be released on completion of either fourteen years or twenty years imprisonment. The prisoner has no such right.

    “A convict undergoing life imprisonment is expected to remain in custody till the end of his life, subject to any remission granted by the appropriate government,” a bench of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Madan B. Lokur said.

    appeasement politics...whats worse is that it only appeases a very small faction which is the most vocal.

    The congress is in a state of dilemma and shock.

    There is a dialogue in Vikram's DHIL movie," avan yennada vechan aapu, namma aalu venchan paaru, mennavum mudiyama, mulungavum mudiyama"....

    :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound: :pound:

    The present state of congress is the same. They cannot chew it, nor they can swallow it.

    But still we cant deny that a wife has lost her husband and kids have lost their father and nation has lost a leader. And the pain by which the family has gone through none of us can imagine.

    feelings of wife,kids etc are not of much importance...it was an offence against the state so it doesn't matter whether they personally forgive or not. In all criminal offences the state prosecutes rather than the victim because it is not only an offence against the victim but also against the entire society.

    3 things:
    1) Supreme court should have realised that India is not a western country - where life-imprisonment in need means staying in prison till death - unlike 14 years of jail in India. In no case you can equate 14years jail with death sentence. So, even if they chose to commute death sentence, giving 14 years jail is not justice. If they want want -they should first get equivalent punishment included in the justice system. But then - India is still developing country. Question of expenditure incurred on such people also arise.

    2) Supreme court should understand the repurcussions of such move. It will encourage political killings. What will prevent leaders to give committments to hired mercenaries - that they will not enforce death sentence - even if they are caught.

    3) The judgement is half delivered. Responsibility has to be fixed.
    If there is delay in the execution of death sentence. Home minister of India should be made responsible for delay. He should be charged with conspiring with the accused and should be made party of the crime. In short - if you have to commute death sentence - do it after hanging the home minister.

    I think the pragmatic approach in present situation should be :
    1) Govt should give commitment to the court that mercy petitions will be decided in the time bound manner. And in case no response is given in 3/6 months - one should consider that the same has been denied and govt should go ahead with executing the death sentence.
    2) After giving such commitment - govt should ask SC to condone the delay in all present cases and should decide on all mercy petitions in say within a month.

    But, alas, as Subramaniam Swamy, hinted in the program(times now) - Govt is politicizing the issue - hence the meek stand taken by its attorneys in court. They are not interested in justice been delivered.

    Yes it was an offense against the state and state have kept all the things under consideration and gave the verdict for turning the death penalty into life imprisonment and now the politician have again gave one more hurdle so that they can come in power.

    This entire Case of Suicide bombing and the resulting killing of 15 Indian Citizens has in itlself a lot of unsolved Mystries. Many people including late Moopanar of Congress, DMK leadership, Su Swamy, Chandra Swamy, Sonia Gandhi (some speculate her), JJ (She was supposed to be there in the Meeting), MK Narayanan (He is accused of tampering a video evidence) etc etc are all being accused of involvement in conspiracy.

    The Same Congress party (with Sonia at its Helm) brought down the IK Gujral Govt as Jain commission indicated that DMK had a hand in the Suicide bombing incident. But why did they went back to DMK in 2004 for support to form govt??

    MK Narayanan was accused by the CBI of tampering evidence but was left free, DMK leadership was supposed to attend some meetings on the same day but cancelled them abruptly, The RAW chief was Accused of trying to save LTTE.

    When We cannot ensure that all these High on the pyramid Citizens were never scrutinized, What are we going to do by hanging 3 men of which one is accused of supplying a pair of batteries???

    agree with u. Sonia and priyanka overplayed to gallary.

    I think JJ is taking revenge for harssing her!

    I already told in this section 2months before because of centre, she's forced to take non bjp and non congrass stand.
