Kasab's Sabak

Kasab came prepared to get killed when he landed in Mumbai. He had no fear of death then. After over 18 months in prison, he has perhaps understood life and death. This perhaps again explains his crying upon getting sentenced to death.

There can be death sentence when you plan to kill a person. Is then death sentence the correct penalty for those that kill hundreds.

I am not sure. Because people like Kasab don't get deterred by death. They are in the business of killing to attain death. Death is their raison d'etre. So, by putting him to death, we are helping him realize his wish.

Solitarty confinement is the worst form of punishment possible. It is torture unlimited. Maybe, that is an appropriate punishment.

Or if my assumption is correct and Kasab now understands life and death and is no longer motivated to offer his life to kill people, even then, death sentence is not correct. He needs to suffer loneliness and brood his life to death. He needs to be denied what he was in the job in the first place for.

PS:
= I am surprised that people think revenge to be the basis of justice system. It ought not to be. Thank god, it is not.
=Kasab is a pawn. The ones who make the moves are not found by putting him to death.

Giving the death penalty to Kasab is a shame considering the number of lives he took with a smiling face on that fateful day.

The best punishment is to make him a nobody. Deny him the right to mingle with other people. Giving the death sentence with so much publicity gives his handlers something to speak about (martyrdom, he has reached God etc.).

What a sad waste of resources of the Government (food for him, place to stay (even in a prison there are costs involved and in Kasab's case, the cost would have been much more higher with the security, intelligence inputs), court and court personnel's time etc.

Just my opinion
