On December 13, 2001, the highest seat of our democracy, Parliament of India was attacked by a group of Islamic Terrorists 9 policemen and 3 parliament staffer lost their life fighting the marauders.
The four accused – Mohammad Afzal, Shaukat Hussain Guru, Afsan Guru, and SAR Geelani were tried and rightly awared the Death Sentence. On that day we thought justice was done to this nation and the people who died fighting the Terrorists.
However, the great Seculars led by organisations such as All India Committee in Defence of SAR Geelani went allout against the judgement and mostly due to their "untiring" efforts the apex court acquitted Geelani and Afsan Guru from all charges and had reduced the death sentence awarded to Shaukat Hussain to 10 years' imprisonment.
However, it upheld the judgement sentencing Afzal to death for actively participating in the conspiracy to attack parliament and waging war against the Indian state.
In its judgement the apex court characterised Afzal as a "menace to the society", whose "life should become extinct" to satisfy "the collective conscience of the society".
But now it seems the SUCKulars are at it again. They want to give clemency to Afzal. I was shocked to read that J&K Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad spoke to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Mohd Afzal's death penalty and sought presidential clemency for Afzal.
Its high time we realise that our very existence is under attack. In the race for few Minority Vote the SUCKualrs in this nation will even pawn their loved ones. It is high time for the Nationalists of this Nation to RISE AGAINST THIS BALLANT ATTACK on the very fabric of this nation.
If not now then when?
