Given the Question being raised and the timing clearly points to political motive behind the execution.

Omar coming out with a statement asking if Rajiv and Beant killers will be executed as well,shows oppurtunism as well.

Congress is doing and has done the worst harm to the Nation by running with the Hares and hunting with the hounds.

The Genesis goes back to Babri Masjid doors being opened,Inaction against Togadia and Late Thackeray,failure to implement Sri Krishna Probe report on Mumbai riots as well.

By raising the bogey of Gujrat 2002 the Muslims are taken for a ride as if they have never been riots of the same magnitude.

Inspite of the Congress record the Muslims(jokers) have fallen over each other in aligning with the Congress to serve there personal interests.Then why blame x or y for anything.

The Abdullahs position on corruption and Jand K has been questionable and there statements cannot be taken seriously.

The curse of taking an innocent to satisfy the conscience of a population baying for the human blood can destroy an entire civilization.
