Qasab Saga

I know reams have been written on Ajmal Qasab & TV channels have bombarded us with the whole case. I’m asking questions.

Why did it take soooo long (as usual) to complete the trial? COnsidering unlike any other trial, here was a ‘terrorist’ / insurgent nabbed alive & was in custody.

Why has the Special PP not been controlled?? He has lashed out at Qasab in his limited vocabulary restricting it to calling him names of animals or linking his behaviour to various animalistic behaviour.

IS Nikam going to be restrained or not?

How different is Nikam to murderers? He went on to claim on channels, “My score is 38 death sentences & 169 life sentences.”

Are human rights activists justified in saying NO to capital punishment at all?

We have caught a small fry in the whole system, he is vv important NO doubt. What happens to those right on top??? Will we ever lay our hands on them?

What Happens to the case now? The High Court will put it on fast trial, it will go to SC then what?

Will Qasab languish in jail or be killed?

Are we looking for vengeance or justice?

When can we stop tv journalists world over to say…”Aap ko kaise mehsoos ho raha hai? Aap ko kaisa lagta hai? How do you feel now??”

Are the survivors or kin of the dead going to say, “You know what look im twisting, twirling, dancing???”

DO we allow passions to rule us & make this whole issue into one patriotic, jingo, eye for eye mega serial?

Mahatma Gandhi was born here in India, peace was born here too, then why have we shed all practical sensibilities????…..

Far too many questions i guess…i have even stopped looking for answers…
