    The 6 rapeists are hindus, they will never get hunged...100% guaranteed. All the laws in the world are politically motivated.

    @RaatkiRani...
    i partially agree with u as innocent should be forgiven... but he was proved guilty in 2006 andd he applied for mercy later...so the so called indian law took 7 fruitful yrs to decline his request...all i can say is if indian govt responded immediately they would have faced a lot of troubles frm afjal's favourites...simply indian govt has no guts to execute it...they waited so long so that ppl can forget the issue..
    thr is no logic of waiting for mercy track these many yrs... we r living in 21st century not in gandhi's ruling...we should learn how to fight n save our ppl...when govt punishes somebody it should be a lesson for others to not do the crime...but indian law never gives this treatment to victims as it take forever.obviously by the time he has been executed 100 more afjal guru's vl be in... as simple as it is...

    @ pesi11

    it is called due process. Whether you agree or not, even criminals have rights. the system does not work differently for "innocent people" and "guilty people". You cannot raise someone from the dead if you made a mistake. that is one of the reasons why it takes so long to execute someone.

    And I agre with ratila - justice, better late than never.

    Now lets see how long it takes to execute the 6 Delhi rapists.. even "open and shut" cases take forever, because the eyes of the world are on India. It's funny, the USA has the largest prison population in the world, many of their states execute people, yet other countries are "frowned upon"
