I was amazed to see you psot against Anwarbhai.
a few questions as a "Devil's Advocate":
1) Afzal Guru had said that CSF had asked him to escort "some people" to Delhi. This Link was not sufficiently scrutinised.
2) Afzal guru had said that he is not happy with his Lawyer. Why the lawyer was not changed?
3) Guru's lawyer never placed any witnesses in his favour. WHY? He merely cross examined Govt's witnesses.
Having said that (in SICKULAR style), I am sure that whatever evidence was presented beofre Supreme Court (Tarun Vijay has detailed it in ToI) "must have been" enough to pronounce him guilty.
Amaresh Mishra is a replica of Sanket Biswas, a regular blogger here. Try reading his other articles where he blames Brahmins for all the ills of the country as Sanket does.
Omar Abdullah's position has been clear and consistent for a very long time and in the game of politics the BJP is wasting its time going for him as they aren't going to win anything.
I am opposed to the death penalty, but as long as it is on the statute books, so be it. However, the courts and administration have displayed an alarming lack of consistency in handling it. As they say in cricket, umpiring decisions, good and bad, are accepted as made in good faith without bias as long as the umpires are consistent. This unfortunately cannot be said about the way the death penalty is awarded and mercy petitions are handled. It is therefore, inevitable that there will be very justifiable allegations of double standards against the judiciary, the government and the parties in opposition.
All that needs to be said about Anwaar's new guru, Amresh Mishra, and his blog has been said. I thought Prashant Pandey was a buffoon, but this guy!!!
A terrorist is given death penalty in 2005 and the governemnt of the day plays politics and delays his hanging till 2013 due to political compulsions. And the new idiot Misra has a problem with Narendra Modi not condemning Sadhvi and Purohit. Such is the quality of our progressives. Yet they have a ready market of cheerleaders!
Amaresh Misra the new twit in town says:
"Fast track courts need to be set-up; just as Afzal Guru was tried speedily, Purohit, Saadhvi Pragya and others should be tried within a six-month time framework and punished immediately if found guilty."
If Misra took time off from smoking illegal substances, he would know that the issue is not the lack of fast-track courts. The issue is that the investigative agencies haven not been able to file a charge-sheet even after 5 years. If they went to court, fast-track or otherwise, the case would get thrown out. So its is better to extend their custody indefinitely, occasionally leak info to the media, say things like 'Hindu terrorism' or BJP runs terror camps' and continue to play politics with it.
So TOI blogs has added a fourth idiot to the three earlier ones - Aakar Patel, Kingshuk Nag, and Prashant Pandey.
