EDITORIAL : DEATH PENALTY RIGHT OR WRONG ?

          AN APPEAL TO H.E.PRESIDENT OF INDIA & ALL HUMANE PERSONS

 

WHY DO WE KILL PEOPLE WHO KILL PEOPLE TO TELL PEOPLE THAT KILLING PEOPLE IS BAD ???

 

A criminal is not born, but made by social circumstances. For the crime scenario in India , every citizen of India is indirectly responsible. Our present inefficient, corrupt legal system , is wholly dependent on evidences which a rich criminal can create or destroy at his sweet will. Police forcibly take confessions from the accussed , by applying 3rd degree torture methods. Some of the judges are literally auctioning ” judicial orders” for bribe. Due to all these reasons one cann’t be 100% sure about one criminal’s conviction. In such cases, capital punishment will be unfair & inhuman. It must be made mandatory, in all death penalty cases that polygraph, lie detector tests, etc must be conducted on ” death convicts ” , to know whether they are innocent or guilty inspite of hostile evidences. Fundamentally, the capital punishment has failed

as a deterrent.

 

The people who clamour for continuance of death penalty are BIASED, INHUMAN, BUTCHERS & CANIBALS. Why don’t they ask for death penalty to policemen, who murder people through 3rd degree  torture, in lock-ups & fake encounters ? why don’t they ask for death penalty to corrupt judges who sells judicial orders for bribe ? why don’t they ask for death penalty to builders who cause building collapses, resulting in mass murders ? why don’t they ask for death

penalty to corrupt government doctors who refuses to treat poor patient without bribe, causing the murder of poor patient ? why don’t they ask for death penalty to industrialist/ traders who sell adulterated food items, spurious drugs/ medicines, in turn causing mass murders ? why don’t they ask for death penalty to corrupt government officials , who help criminals, industrialists? Why don’t they ask for death penalty to politicians who create communal & other riots, who have ties with foreign intelligence agencies, terrorist outfits ? Why don’t they ask for death penalty to mole in the P.M.O & the senior officers of National Security Council who passed on national secrets ? Why don’t they ask for death penalty to public servants , ministers who gave aid , support to terrorist outfits like L.T.T.E out of government of india coffers , killing hundreds of srilankans , tamils ?

 

These are the guilty persons , criminals  who don’t personally , directly murder human beings but cunningly murder hundreds which go unnoticed by any. For the person who barbarically murders one human being you prescribe CAPITAL PUNISHMENT but for those who murder hundreds you say nothing why ? THEY WON’T ASK FOR IT, BECAUSE MOST OF THE PERSONS WHO ARE DEMANDING DEATH PENALTY ARE BIASED, SELFISH & BELONG TO ONE OF THE SECTIONS OF CRIMINALS MENTIONED ABOVE. They lack objectivity.

 

Death penalty is the ultimate . cruel , inhuman and degrading punishment. It violates the right to life Article 1 of universal declaration of human rights. It is irrevocable , prone to judicial errors and can be inflicted on innocents. It has never been shown to deter crime more effectively than other punishments. In most of the countries including india , judicial system is ineffective , inefficient to prosecute impartially both poor & rich criminals. Those condemned to death penalty mostly come from poor background who are unable to afford wise & articulate Advocates who can efficiently argue their case. Against these poor accussed , the criminal nexus of police-criminal-bureaucrat builds up fake evidences , extracts forced confessions by 3rd degree torture. Most of death convicts world over belongs to either poor , TRIBALS , DALITS , etnic minorities , political dissidents , children , mentally ill. No rich & mighty criminal is ever prosecuted let alone hanged.

 

The judicial system which depends on technical facts like evidences lacks sense to figure out truth out of fake evidences , also as judges are human beings they are prone to err. Add to this corruption in judiciary. Death penalty is irreversible & irrevocable. In a mature democracy like U.S.A with relatively efficient judicial system itself hundreds of cases of death convicts were found to be wrong , convicts were found to be innocents upon review & were let free. Where as in india , the accussed lacks the wherewithal to argue his case in the first place then how can he arrange for case review ? no judge is god , if a hanged person is found to be innocent the judge doesn’t has the ability to bring back the hanged person to life , do such judges have right to snatch away lives ?

 

 

 

 

 

Hereby HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH’S Urges H.E . PRESIDENT OF INDIA ,

 

1.        to stay all death penalties until equitable criminal justice system with respect to above mentioned rich & mighty criminals is put into force .

 

 

2.        until death penalty is abolished, to make poly graph, lie detector tests mandatory for all death convicts in a free & fair manner by a neutral authority , to ascertain whether the convict is really guilty or innocent of the alleged crime .

 

3.        until death penalty is abolished , to give a peaceful choice of death to the death convicts like sleeping pill, injection, gun shot, etc instead of medieval & barbaric ” death by hanging”.

 

4.     finally, to abolish death penalty from statuette books.

 

JAI HIND. VANDE MATARAM.

 

Your’s sincerely,

AN APPEAL TO REGISTRAR-GENERAL SUPREME COURT OF INDIA

         violation of fundamental / human rights

 

       In India, corruption & criminalization is rampant in public service , only honest few are left. The corrupt in the public service are aiding & abetting terrorism , mafia underworld & making money. Through department of public grievances , department of administratives reforms & public grievances and mysore city corporation , HRW has appealed to various public servants for justice , for information related to it. In most of the cases they are keeping mum , in few cases they have given vague replies. In total they are covering up the crimes of public servants & informations leading to it.

        Thereby, they are violating my & my fellow Indian citizen’s constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights / human rights and obstructing me from performing my fundamental duties.

         Hereby, HRW appeals to honourable supreme court of India to treat this as a public interest litigation ( PIL ) , to protect our fundamental rights by issuing writ of mandamus to the concerned public servants directing them  to provide information , justice sought in the below mentioned complaints.

PUCL seeks probe into custodial deaths

 

JAIPUR — The Rajasthan unit of the People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) has demanded an inquiry by the National Human Rights Commission into two custodial deaths in the past two weeks.

 

In a letter to the National Human Rights Commission, Rajasthan PUCL president Dhan Singh has alleged that in both the cases the mandatory provisions of a judicial inquiry and guidelines of the Supreme Court for conducting post mortem and videography were not followed.

 

In the first case, Mohammed Junaid, a Pakistani prisoner, who was referred to a local psychiatric centre for diagnosis and treatment, died under mysterious circumstances. It was alleged that he was killed by a fellow inmate admitted in the same ward following a scuffle. The police and the custodians of the psychiatric centre have evidently failed in their duty to protect the life of the inmate.

 

The second case pertains to the custodial death of Shyamlal Biswas, an accused in a murder case who was found dead in the police lock-up. The police claimed that he committed suicide. The PUCL have alleged that neither post mortem nor videography procedure were followed in this case as well. They demanded the intervention of the NHRC in both the

cases to bring out the truth.

 

Rajasthan figures fourth among states accused of violation of human rights.

 

According to an analytical study of human rights, focusing broadly on civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, the human rights situation in the state has been far from satisfactory in the last four-five years.

 

Based on both primary and secondary data analysis and case studies on human rights situation in northern India and other states like Uttaranchal, Bihar and Chhattisgarh, the report expressed concern over sustained attacks on particular communities in Rajasthan.

 

It said Dalits, tribals and women were the worst affected. The report was prepared jointly by Public Advocacy Initiatives for Rights and Values in India (PAIRVI) and Development Coordination Network Committee Trust (DCNC).
