RIP cos respecting the dead is completly different from respecting them when they are alive.!!
I think there is a certain limit to "respect in death". Serial killers, serial rapists, child abusers, terrorists, and similar people who have no respect for sanctity of life, don't deserve that respect in death. It might seem unfair and cold to celebrate someone's death. But spare a thought for victims and people affected by his actions.
That being said I don't believe the world is any better or safer now that Kasab is dead. The goal should not be killing terrorists but preventing terror in the first place.

Justice has been served for the victims and victims family!
He was just a goat, the main culprits are out there and ideology is still alive tho the goat is "dead" now. We should prevent the "birth" of another Kasab.

I was just reading the Yahoo News article on Kasab's execution. The comments are interesting. It was a huge hue and cry in India that Kasab was kept alive for so long. Yahoo readers, mostly Americans were praising India for such speedy trial and execution of a terrorist and complaining at America's slow judicial process and lack of executions.
As Indians, even if some may feel the execution came too late, we should take pride in our judicial process and democracy in this case. We gave him a full and fair trial. He was treated humanely and safeguarded in a high security prison. But there were no pardons, no change of heart, no attempts to change it to life imprisonment. Ultimately, he was executed discreetly without much hype or ado. This is how it should be with executions. Criminals don't deserve hype and publicity in death.
I think this reflects well on India. Unlike some backward fascists nations we have a fair trial process even for terrorists. We don't violate human rights. At the same time we don't sympathize with terrorists.
I'm usually against death penalty, but I think cases like Kasab, Timothy McVeigh etc are reasonable exceptions. Sometimes executions are due.
