Afzal’s hanging may be put on hold

How the hell people can ask clemency for this terrorist? He has committed serious crime, attacked Indian entity (parliament), Killed innocents Indians. No mercy for this bloody terrorist.

New Delhi, October 3: The execution of Afzal Guru may not take place on October 20 as scheduled as his family filed a mercy petition with President A P J Abdul Kalam in the midst of the raging controversy over a reprieve for the Parliament terror attack convict.

This follows the Home Ministry receiving a copy of the mercy plea from the Rashtrapati Bhawan for scrutiny of all the aspects before it gives its opinion to the President who has to decide whether to grant him clemency, sources said.

The Delhi government and the authorities in Tihar jail, where the execution is slated for October 20, have been informed about the receipt of the mercy petition, a procedure followed in almost in all cases to give adequate time for consideration of the petition, sources said.

  1. Today, it has come in the papers that he hiself has refused to petitition the president for pardon. The kith and kin of the security person killed in the parliament have also appealed to the President not to spare him. Let’s wait and watch what happens. The President’s job though ceremonial can be tough at times.

  2. Hiren,

    Hope you keeping well and thanks for coming back on my blog, well Mr.Afzal is only trying to becoame Martyr. Its just propoganda that he does not want clemency so that media can picture him nice and sober guy. This is total rubbish. People who has started the signature thing for him are all dumb, how can they ask for clemency? Did they forget we lost 9 security personel in that attack? What about family of these security personel?
