WELCOMING the hanging of Mumbai terrorist attack convict Ajmal Aamir Kasab on November 21, VHP working president Dr Pravin Togadia demanded similar treatment to all terrorists and jehadis.
In a statement issued on November 21, Dr Togadia said, “The attacker of India’s Parliament Afzal and hundreds of other Jehadis are living gleefully in Indian jails like parasites eating up Indian taxpayers’ hard earned money. They not only are a burden on Bharat but more importantly, they also pose a grave danger of the Kandahar-like incident which endangers Bharat’s safety and security immensely. Therefore, it is now essential that without any further delay in clearing Afzal’s mercy petition, he should be hanged as per the Supreme Court verdict and other Jehadis should be tried/hanged too. Mumbai blasts 1992 accused / convicts are still sitting in Indian jails and some are roaming free. Gujarat Sabarmati Train burning attack where Rambhaktas were burnt alive, the main accused is ‘absconding’ yet and there are many such Jehadi attack cases. Union Government and all state Governments should act on these cases faster and give justice to the victims and also save Bharat from further tragedies.” (FOC)
