The arguments advanced by those pleading for the abolition of the death penalty are misplaced. How does one feel, when one’s five year old daughter is raped and killed? How does one feel when the most beautiful girl, one’s own daughter lights up the house every second is horribly disfigured by an acid attack?
How does one feel when one’s son is kidnapped and sacrificed for some devil to get some hidden wealth?
The main and really the only question is how do the family members or those very near the victim suffer as a result of the crime?
They shall be given at least some justice, so that their terrible suffering will be reduced to some extent. In Countries like Saudi Arabia where the executions are carried out publicly, the crime rate is very low.
There is every justification to give terrible pain to the criminals before they are put to death.
How does one feel when the criminal struts happily after release because the Nethas want those criminals for elections and so release them say on the Independence Day or republic day.
