As I feared it happened. Quota India vicariously hanged Dawood and Tiger Memon on June 30.
Despite clemency plea for Yakub from several eminent citizens which saw over 300 persons (former Supreme Court judges, academia, human rights activists, film makers, politicians and others from civil society) asking President Pranab Mukherjee to stay Memon’s execution quota India would have none of it.
These eminent people pointed out procedural lapses and “disturbing aspects of this case which make the award of death sentence of Yakub Memon as grossly unfair, arbitrary and excessive” but Quota India said it will remain unmoved as it has “made up its mind”.
NOW QUOTA INDIA IS HAPPY. IT NEED NOT BOTHER to bleat to PAKISTAN ASKING FOR TIGER OR DAWOOD BECAUSE 26/11 CULPRIT HAS BEEN TRULY HANGED.
Other venality was it successfully spread the gossamer of idea that Yakub was the Master mind to convince the unbelievers that Yakub’s death is kosher. Ujjwal Nigam, who knows the truth, was one of those offering this new thesis on TV channels that Yakub was the MASTERMIND. Maybe this is the first time a mastermind surrendered to be hanged of his own free choice.
THIS IS THE SAME LOGIC QUOTA INDIA has been using TO HEAP GOODIES and financial benefits ON RAMVILAS PASWANS AND MEIRA KUMARS AND LALOOS of India BECAUSE DALITS (and backwards too?) WERE SUPPRESSED FOR CENTURIES AND THEY NEEDED SOCIAL JUSTICE.
BOMB PLANTERS WERE NOT HANGED. WHY? Forget it. No one was to be hanged except a man who surrendered to Quota India in good faith.
Worse Yakub had already served more than the stipulated time of 14 years slated for life imprisonment and his good behaviour was talk among the jailors. Still he was doubly punished with EXTRA-LIFE imprisonment plus hanging at such a late stage when THERE WAS LITTLE EVIDENCE OF HIS DIRECT INVOLVEMENT IN THE BLASTS. Several eminent citizens have rightly termed it as ‘legal murder.’ The same ‘legal murder’ happened with Kehar Singh.
Indian society has been degraded with quotas and secularism and its ethos perverted. See how permissiveness prevailed when everyone was gloating at the gates of Nagpur Central Jail taking ‘selfies’; media anchors and reporters crying Yakub getting his due.
Quota India also spread falsehood on Yakub’s surrender. They made it as if Yakub was nabbed in Delhi after being brought from Nepal. Now Nepal is infested with ISI men. Can RAW dare to kidnap Yakub when ISI is everywhere in Nepal? Obviously it was Yakub’s own effort that made it easy for RAW to get hold of him.
WHY then THE QUOTA CHICANERY WHEN YAKUB WAS “SAID TO BE” ARRESTED IN NEPAL AND WAS RECORDED AS BEING CAUGHT IN INDIA? WHY NOT SAY honestly HE WAS ARRESTED IN NEPAL and not in Delhi? Asatyameva jayate?
There is something rotten in Quota India when it brazenly hangs someone in a hurry. The three members of the Apex Court wouldn’t even consider a further 14 days reprieve which was legally due to Yakub.
Yakub had truly repented his crime. This man completed his MA English (Hons.) in 2012 and MA (Political Science) last year from jail thanks to distance learning of Indira Gandhi National Open University. IGNOU had provided him free books and other study manuals. He scored 58% in the former and 56% in the latter. His degrees was to be conferred in jail on August 8. But Quota India saw to it that it would have none of it — THE SAME WAY PRAKASH JAVDEKAR would have none of it when he MADE UP HIS MIND COLLUDING WITH ARJUN SINGH TO THRUST OBC QUOTAS down OUR THROATS one wintry December morning.
Would heavens have fallen if 14 day reprieve was granted to Yakub so that he could have had his degrees and dying with the satisfaction that Quota India had at least shown some civility towards his death?
Finally death penalty is state murder. May be it should be okay to hang politicians like Laloo and those involved in Vyapam scam who defrauded India’s poor of trillions of rupees. Unlike politicians criminals like Yakub are lured by quirk of fate the first time. IN CHINA THE CHOICE OF DEATH SENTENCE IS ALWAYS FIRST FOR CORRUPT POLITICIANS.
That is not possible in Quota India as CORRUPT rule the roost and shape our rotten destiny.
