BJP, Shiv Sena welcomes Kasab’s hanging

published on November 21, 2012

Nearly four years after the Mumbai terror attack, Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving Pakistani gunman, was hanged to death at the Yerawada central prison here this morning in an operation shrouded in secrecy.

A group of Shiv Sena workers raised slogans ‘Vande Mataram’ slogans outside the Yerawada jail hailing the hanging of Kasab and demanded that simialr justice be meted out to Parliament attack case death row convict Afzal Guru.

“Better late than never. Kasab’s hanging will act as a balm on the wounds of the people of Mumbai but their wounds are still fresh. They will get relief only when Kasab’s handler’s across the border are brought to justice,” BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.

He also demanded that Parliament attack case convict Afzal Guru be hanged soon to send across a strong message to the terrorists and instill a sense of fear in them.

BJP also welcomed President Pranab Mukherjee’s prompt refusal of Kasab’s mercy petition.

BJP Vice President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said Kasab’s hanging will serve as a warning and a lesson to his bosses across the border.

“The country expects our government to send such strong message and give such punishment to those who have bloodied their hands with the death of hundreds of innocent people,” Naqvi said.
