Myth of death penalty.
So called barbarity of capital punishment is based on a wrong assumption that death penalty is barbaric and life imprisonment is civilized. This is mainly due to the inferiority complex, the disease some fake Indian intellectuals suffer from. Since some Western countries, who have high standard of living, have declared that capital punishment is barbaric and life imprisonment is civilized, the fake Indian intellectuals are bound to follow that hypothesis. The reason is that most of these people have low IQ of their own and low capability of critical thinking. They just follow the ongoing current of propaganda. This is also a fact that those who failed to write well in their other exams, become good writers in media. For such people, anything that comes from Western countries have to be civilized, and anything our own have to barbaric. In most of the countries where capital punishment is banned, it the life imprisonment which is barbaric, not the capital punishment. People in most of these countries live luxurious life, even when they are unemployed, due to lots of social benefits and freebies. If one can understand the standard of living in these countries, then one can easily understand how life imprisonment is barbaric for them and not the capital punishment. Most of the prisoners serving life imprisonment will opt for capital punishment if allowed. Many of them commit suicide, and many of them try to commit suicide, during their life imprisonment. Their abolishment of death penalty is not for the criminals who used to live in gutters. For such criminals, after the recent terrorists incidents, people have started to demand the bringing back of the capital punishment even in these countries. Death is natural, not the confinement, and that too solitary confinement and solitary confinement without parole, which these countries used to practice. The day the standard of living in India reaches their level, and the grave crime is committed by not the people used to live in physical or mental gutters, I will be first to change my mind and support ban on capital punishment in India because then life imprisonment will be more painful for such criminals. Those countries who keep on pouring concept of barbaric and civilized way of life down the throat of fake Indian intellectuals, they should be reminded that their mass slaughter of cows is barbaric. Human nature runs with psychology, not with science. More the blood you spill, more is the barbarity. Bigger the animal you kill, bigger is the barbarity. Otherwise there is no difference in eating beef and cannibalism. Weaker hearts get fainted with the amount of blood and size of dead-bodies, not necessarily with the number of deaths, such as death of small insects. India has extradition treaty with many such countries and agrees not to award capital punishment when a criminal is extradited. Why not India tells them, when a criminal is extradited to these countries, not to torture them under life-imprisonment and provide option to criminals to choose between life imprisonment and capital punishment; these countries will pee in their pants.
