Outlook India : India’s Executed The Evidence, Not Kasab’
The lawyer of LeT operative Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi says his case just got stronger
Toral Varia Deshpande Interviews Shahbaz Rajput

The Pakistan's perception about Kasaab's execution, is absurd,illogocal and simply laughable.Going by this logic,rather lack of it, Pakistan seems to suggest that the entire case of 26/11,must be given a golden handshake and closed.Its intransigence, brazenness and un-cooperative attitude in the entire saga, is worthy of condemnation. Caste iron evidences provided by India including "voice intercepts" between the terrorists in India and their handlers in Pakistan were trashed by Pakistan under instructions from the ISI.
India's handling of Pakistan with kid gloves has misfired.This is no way of fighting a proxy war waged by Pakistan.The USA did not for a moment think about "human rights violations' while killing OSAMA through Drone attacks.Similarly,India should have gone for a limited warfare targetting the terrorist camps in POK through surgical operations.Conventional warfare will never pay off.
In Contrast,.Madam Indira Gandhi would have given a befitting reply ,had the attacks on Indian Parliament, Mumbai and elsewhere ,taken place during her life time.The present regime is incompetent,,gutless and spineless with the de jure PM ,Manmohan Singh, reduced to "His Master's Voice",called Sonia Gandhi's "Pearls of Wisdom"

How come,one can say that India has followed all
prcedure in law of that country in kasabs case, and
dismiss that they exicuted the evidence in same breath?
Exactly some elimentary commonsense is missing.
There is the complete evidence of the satellite transcripts of Pakistani handlers giving step by step instructions to the terrorists. There is David Headly. There are the CCTV footages of the terrorists spraying bullets in Mumbai. There are dead people on the ground (as proof for any conspiracy theorists in Pakistan). There are Kasab's own statements. IF Kasab was produced in court in Pakistan, would he necessarily have told the truth? The moment he figures that he is on home ground, he will resort to lies and may even claim he was never in Mumbai! When his conscience did not stop him from butchering people, how is it going to stop him from lying to get away? And his handlers will always brain wash him and tell him any lie told against kafirs is okay and he'll go to heaven and get his share of virgins!
Our home minister initially stated that even the prime minister was not aware of Kasab's execution date and that he came to know only through the TV. Perhaps it testifies the common belief that the ministers don't consider it necessary to keep the PM in loop regarding their actions- be it any major internal policy decisions or the matters relating to global ramifications.
"The group [LeT] felt, that India was party to a wrong in the affairs of Pakistan, or that simply, India is anti-Pakistan. " Aditya Mookerjee
The founder of the LeT is Hafiz Saeed, a fanatical Muslim, who tells his followers that Hindustan should be "cut to pieces" until Hindus are once again "subjugated" by Muslims like our ancestors were for a thousand years. Here is a Daily Mail article with an interview with this monster:
Where did Hafiz Saeed get the idea that Muslims need to "subjugate" Hindus? From Koran 9:29 which commands Muslims to convert, subjugate or kill all kaffirs. So for this thug and for millions of Pakistanis like him, the attacks against India are a religious duty to be carried out in the name of their religion and their prophet.
So quit fantasizing about Hafiz Saeed believing that India is "a party to a wrong in Pakistan" or some other self-hating stupidity.
He is telling you exactly why wants to destroy India but we are Moorkh-jees, so we do not listen.
It`s an absolutely illogical stand being taken, saying that- with Kasab now no more Lakhavi`s case in his defence has gone strong. Are there no more, innumerable evidences substntially proving his clear hand as of being a mastermind in 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. There were reports in the media that Kasab`s recorded statements subsantiating the facts( his guilt ) were made available to Pakistan Govt. There appears no intention of the Pakistan Govt. to prosecute the said mastermind, who in fact is the real culprit.
The failure of the judicial system is at the heart of their failure as a nation.
A lesson India too needs to keep in mind.
Shahbaz Rajput is as devious a man as his client is. Kasab is not the only "piece of evidence" for the dastardly crime committed on Indian soil; the main conspirators, the masterminds and the financiers, both state and non-state players, are alive and kicking in Pakistan. Kasab might be dead but the entire records of legal proceedings against him are available and that is equally tenable under law. Besides, David Headley (aka Dawood Gilani) is very much alive as is Abu Jundal; thenm there are the transcripts of the conversations between the terrosits and their handlers in Karachi.
The fact remains that Pakistan is a lawless state where laws are broken with impunity. In such a scenario, Shahbaz Rajput is smug in his belief that his client will never be conivcted in a Pakistani court.
I think if the name of the founder of the Lashkar -e Toiba is mentioned particularly in India by govt., people do know him in Pakistan. It seems, it is natural to engage in certain acts in Pakistan, if people feel that they have been wronged, or that redressal is nowhere in sight. The group felt, that India was party to a wrong in the affairs of Pakistan, or that simply, India is anti-Pakistan. People don't usually interfere with the grievances of others, when people feel wronged, not associated with the wronged party. Those who joined the political movement, or party, felt probably, they are patriotic. Or they are doing their nation a great service. The Pakistan govt. cannot it seems, discourage this, or ask the party to change perspective. It did appear, that the Lashkar-e-Toiba appeared, when Pakistan was in a political position, where she felt, the interests against her interests, domestically, and internationally, were so strong, that any expression of patriotism for that nation could not be supressed. Now, if Pakistan acts, she will be seen in certain quarters as anti-national, because of govt. perception.
