A group of 10 Pakistani terrorists sailed to India in the city of Bombay to brutally kill innocent people in the city. This happened for a consecutive three days from 26th November 2008 to 29th November 2008. These three days can be called as “Black Days” of the Indian History and no citizen can ever forget these days in their lives. The 10 men who entered India illegally had loads of ammunitions and weapons with them which killed almost 166 of people in Bombay and 238 were injured. This was done to threaten the Government of India and to liberate Kashmir.

Whether the death sentence was equitable?
The Analysis of this issue can be done through a simple question as to whether the kasab case is a legal triumph or moral defeat.
Kasab is one of those few people whose names are intertwined with their destinies. The name Kasab derived from the word ‘quassab’ means 'butcher' in Urdu. When a man cold bloodedly eliminates other human beings against whom he bore no grudge he is not only a criminal but also a threat and danger to civilization. When a loyal dog turns rabid there is no other way but to kill it to save it and the people around it. There is no point in arguing for clemency to such elements who threatens to ruin the very foundations of civilizations. Kasab was a ferocious beast who enjoyed killing others. “A criminal who, having renounced reason... hath, by the unjust violence and slaughter declared war against all mankind, and therefore may be destroyed as a lion or tyger, one of those wild savage beasts with whom men can have no society nor security." And upon this is grounded the great law of Nature, "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed. Says john locke in his Second Treatise of Civil Government. Everyone saw his calm & cool face caught by the cctv cameras in cst Mumbai while bullet ridden corpses of his victims were strewn all around him. he acted as a beast who enjoyed killing others. so for the safety of the people around him and to save humanity from slidng into chaos we had to make a bold decision. …show more content…
Article 7 of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights frame work states that “all are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination”. Article 14 in The Constitution Of India is about ‘Equality before law’. It says that "The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India Prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth”. Considering these articles we find that Kasab was not given justice when compared with similar cases.
India can be proud that we delivered justice to Kasab. Our poor nation spend something close to a billion to keep him alive and safe we gave him the best medical care when he was down with fever days before his execution. So none can blame us for mistreating this murderer who gave nothing but pain to the
