Although we are not here to decide that the person should live in the society or not or we can say, we are not "GOD". But if we see the epic "The Ramayana" Ram killed Ravan because he kidnapped his wife and misbehaved with her and also he mistreated the people. The Epic shows that Victory of Good over evil which leads that we will get JUSTICE some day. We thought that law will take strict actions against the wrongdoings. I support Capital punishment is allowed in our country because if we give a chance to the criminals it will lead to increasing crimes than before. But it is also true that this will not be justified if we gave the punishment without any pain to them who are doing these heinous crimes. Therefore, Stringent laws should be made and these criminals should be first tortured day by day so that they will repent their evil deeds. And afterward, they should be hanged. As in the case of Acid attacks or Rapes, the victim has to suffer the whole life and to survive with that pain and the humiliation they face lifetime. Rich Criminals released very easily and others are only having rest in the Jail.
If we see the highest rape crimes countries involving Canada, Sweden, Germany, South Africa where the capital punishment has been abolished. Still, the rate of crimes is very high there. Therefore, Abolition of Capital Punishment may not help to eradicate the crimes in our country.
Our Government also spend lots of amount in surviving the criminals. This will affect our economy as well. As these funds can be used to reduce poverty and develop the underdeveloped section of our society.
|Sujeet Sagar said: (Feb 16, 2017)|
|Yes, Of course, it would be banned because today we see so many crimes such as "Crime against women" development and so many other crimes the development of our country will be slow.|
|Mohit Gautam said: (Feb 15, 2017)|
|In my opinion I think capital punishment should not be banned.
We can take the example of countries such as Pakistan and Iraq, every 5th day a terrorist attack takes place. Because of abolition of CP.
|Aashi said: (Feb 3, 2017)|
|Hey, I am Aashi.
I think capital punishment is given to those who committed a big crime.
|Neha said: (Jan 13, 2017)|
|Captial punishment should be there for those who deserve it. For every crime we have some punishment as well as fine but are these punishments or fines enough for a terrorist who take our thousands of people lives away and leave their families in unbearable pain. Should government spent too much money in their maintenance, or for rapists who destroy women's life or for killers who kills a person only for money.
Every year we hear about many cases but most of them are frequently taking place. Why? because ignorance of law is making them fearless. They commit crime easily and get free and ready for another one.
Only one step we need to take here is a firm punishment or it may be CP, I will go for CP.
|Lekshmy Nanda said: (Jan 10, 2017)|
|It should not be banned. Because nowadays women should be more alert after the case of Jisha, Soumya. And Govindhachhammi and Ameerool, they are not to be escaped. They must get the punishment at maximum. Then only these men study a lesson. So that we need it.|
|Abhishikta Choudhury said: (Jan 9, 2017)|
|Death penalty or capital punishment means a punishment that ends one life forever and Life is the gift of God. No one, not even the state has the right to take away one's life. According to most of the critique, the death penalty is unsuited for a civilized society as morally it does not make us better if we kill those who kill? It hypocritical. It is a barbaric way to who believe in the principle of "eye for an eye tooth for a tooth limb for a limb and life for a life". Sir James Stephen draftsman of IPC mentioned that no other punishment deters man so effectively as the punishment death but in the general Assembly of US stated that there is no credible evidence that death penalty deters crime more. In places where the death penalty has been abolished, statics do not show any rise in a homicide, on the contrary, it shows a reduction in the number of homicide than the country where it has been retained as in Canada 40%drop in the murder rate.
The death penalty also violates The article 21 of the Constitution ie right to life which is the most basic of all human Right, however, the same article provides that it must not be opposite to the procedure established by law which is off course Rarest of the Rarest cases. Punishment according to the majority jurists should not be destructive to the offender. They agree that it is not the severity but the certainty of the punishment that deters. If the offender can escape or think or belief that he can remain undetected or untouched he may plan the murder. Sometimes even in the case of Predetermined and cold blooded murders of the most brutal types, the true offenders remain undetected or if arrested then for want of sufficient and relevant evidence given the benefit of doubt and acquitted. When so many people go free and roam free, what deterrent even in the case of cold blooded murders can the death penalty bring about Hardly any. So even if the death sentence is abolished there is no danger.
Human beings are ought to make mistakes so as our judges if Judge makes mistake in the course of deciding judicial proceedings than that mistake can not be remedied after execution. The Supreme Court has itself admitted on several occasions that there are confusion and contradiction in the application of the death penalty. Last year 14 eminent retired judges wrote to the President, pointing out that the Supreme Court had erroneously given the death penalty to 15 people since 1996, of whom two were hanged. The judges called this "the gravest known miscarriage of justice in the history of crime and punishment in independent India". The opponent of capital punishment also said that death penalty mainly sentences to the person who belongs from economically and a social backwards section of the society. Studies conducted by Amnesty International and the People's Union for Civil Liberties have shown that the process of deciding who should be on death row is arbitrary and biased. Therefore, there is no need for a punishment of such and so it should be banned.
|Puneet Singh Sarkaria said: (Jan 8, 2017)|
|Capital punishment is in human. It is a law of jungle. If man calls him civilised, why should we follow the law of jungle? There are other punishments good enough to meet the end of justice. Why not content a life sentence? In fact, it will be more effective because life sentence is example for others. No doubt, a strong case can be made for life imprisonment which gives a man a chance to repent himself. Only one life may ostensibly be taken by capital punishment but economically, socially, psychologically, and morally the lives of entire family are seriously effected. By the way, what has capital punishment done for us so far by way of eliminating murder? A person should be given chance to repent his deeds. No doubt, it causes some extra expense but it better results.
So, Ladies and Gentlemen capital punishment should be abolished.
|Sam Singh said: (Jan 5, 2017)|

|The use of capital punishment is one of the best ways for a civilised society to make sure that it remains civilised long term.|
|Annu Ahlawat said: (Nov 3, 2016)|
Truly, everyone has given a great point of views about this. Indeed I think that capital punishment should exist as I think that it's true that morality still relates to the law but morality on the cost of law is not right I think. Some of us argue that "eye for an eye make the whole world blind" but we should remember that we can't apply the theories of an idealist in reality so in case if C.P is not given to a terrorist then it's very dangerous to our economy and faith of the victims will set away from law. Soo I think C.P can be justified but it's also true that in same cases it can be replaced by some other grave punishment as a rapist is not truly entitled for C.P because taking his life in a second is not justice to the victim, but some grave punishment should be given to these type of heinous criminals. But the complete abolition of C.P will reduce the threat of punishment and encourage further crime.
THNKS FR READING PATIENTLY.

|Capital punishments should not be banned because I think at least some members may be having a fear that if they commit that crime they will be killed. MY DEAR FRIENDS LET US SAVE SOME INNOCENTS THAN CRIMINALS.|
|Manish Tiwari said: (Oct 17, 2016)|
|Yes, According to me, the capital punishment should be allowed.|
|Nikang said: (Oct 12, 2016)|
|Punishment should reduce crime; did hanging of Kasab reduce terrorism? Look what happened in Pathankot and your; did hanging in Nirbhaya case deterred criminals? Look what happened to Monika Ghurde; our laws nd policing need improvement; criminals gets courage because he knows the loopholes in our system. He knows that he can get out of it; if it is such that the criminal will surely get punished or convicted ie. If there is certainty of punishment then the law will act as a deterrent; but if there is no certainty of punishment. Which can be created by people with money? Getting best manipulative lawyer. WHICH IS THE TREND IN OUR COUNTRY. INDIA. Then, law doesn't serve as deterrent; when people are angry or frustrated. At that high point, they are unable to think about d consequences. Even if its death punishment. So this punishment doesn't serve purpose; but if our system nd law can prove that. A punishment is SURE if committed crime. Then it will deter people; some petty thieves stay in prison for many years even without conviction because he doesn't have money to get bailed. While some rich rapists nd murderers roam free and runs our country; I serve as a police officer and I swear that law in our country is very very very very very inefficient in giving justice to the poor and putting a rich criminal behind bars; NETAS are the father and BABUS are the mother of this country and the poor are like refugees.|
|Bhoomija Dwivedi said: (Oct 10, 2016)|
|According to my point of view, it carries no doubt that CP should be allowed. It's not like that criminal who are committing heinous crimes should b given another chance those insensitive criminals who didn't even bring a thought of those innocent people who died of no cause. In my concept, all these criminals should be awarded death sentence so that it can set an example and push all the criminals into deterrent zone.|
|Masooma Sultani said: (Oct 10, 2016)|
I think it should be allowed because if it should allowed then no one do the same crime again.
|Annie Rea said: (Oct 8, 2016)|
|I don't support Capital Punishment. I am aware I am just a thirteen-year-old but listen.
As a kid, I grew up thinking fairy tales were real. I believed in happy endings, I still do. You could all predict the shock in me when I came face to face with reality. There was a time when I was watching television and I came upon a channel that displayed medieval times. They were about to hang people.
I was horrified. It just made me feel so disgusted to even watch it happening. I sooner found out that the man they hung killed somebody.
They hung the man for murder.
But please explain to me, what right do we have to take one's life? Just because he killed someone doesn't give us a good excuse to kill him. Actually, there will NEVER be a good excuse to kill someone.
What does it make us? Killing these criminals? Is it okay just because they too have sinned?
If it is, then doesn't that make us no better than them?
Before you do it, think. Think about the example you are setting. Think, will there really be a difference?
If you killed this criminal, then you are a killer. What this criminal did or signed for doesn't matter. If you killed this criminal. You killed this criminal. You killed someone. You took a human life.
If you didn't, if you gave this criminal a chance to change for the better, then thank you. If you chose not to kill this criminal, there would be at least half a chance he would stay the same. But think about the other half, that he could do better. Think about the example you have set.
To be honest, whatever his crime may be, it should have an equal punishment. You know the statement, 'An eye for an eye'?
That's still not the answer. Did you know, 'An eye for an eye makes the world blind'?
CP isn't the equal punishment of any crime. It is a crime itself.
It's better to switch a light of hope in others than burn fear into them.
|Qwerty said: (Sep 25, 2016)|
|Cp should be as people will not be transformed until they learn a lesson. So this can be very helpful in reducing the crime this is the severest punishment that can be given to a criminal for indulging in a heinous crime. It entails death to the convict either by hanging or any different way.|
|Anshita said: (Sep 24, 2016)|
|"An eye for an eye makes the world blind".
I am against capital punishment. Yes, it should be banned. How better are we from the ones who commit such crimes. Ironically it's like we murder someone who has murdered someone else just to show that murder is an offense. Learning from the past, how helpful had it been in reducing crime? Did imposing capital punishment reduce murder, rape or terrorist attack cases in our nation or collectively the world? No. Then why are we even practicing such laws which yield no result yet at a cost of one's life? As also, can saving funds of a nation and not wasting money on criminals be a just explanation to take a life? We as humans have no right to take a human life. There might be many other options to replace capital punishment with. We must look upon them and get over with avenging a life as it neither does any good to the family of the victim nor sets any example to reduce further crimes.
|Simmi said: (Sep 23, 2016)|
|In this case, if you give the second chance to the terrorist or criminal then there is no doubt that they will get another chance but what about those people who were suffered from this above crime. I support capital punishment because if we give one chance to a person means we support the crimes and criminals, yes it is true that crimes increasing day by day but can you think that why it increase?because for our silence. We should be aware of this.|
|Ayush Tandel said: (Sep 13, 2016)|
|For my opinion, capital punishment should not be banned because in my point of view C.P is necessary for each and everyone how is doing the small or big crime. If we give CP to criminals once and next time other criminals will think thousand of time before going on the wrong track. I think C.P is very necessary because without C.P criminals will be fearless as we can see the best example m our country, there are few cases we listen to give C.P of culprits. So they think they will go in cell and again out and start doing the same thing they did before like crime. I know that some religious behavior might Chang their mind because sometimes innocent get killed instead of crisps.
|Henry said: (Sep 10, 2016)|
|According to me, definitely Capital Punishment should be allowed. Because I think this can be a strong step which we can take to eradicate this dirt from our society. Capital Punishment saves fund and environment from being exploited and gives a hope to the victim's family. The culprit who doesn't fear death does not deserve a second chance. They are totally unsound and also I would say totally brainwashed!
For this, we can take up some other solutions but the easiest I think is death i.e. Capital Punishment. Criminals commit crime because they know that they won't be killed and that they spend a short time in prison. Terrorists should be hanged to death in front of the public, not in jails in early mornings, they will get sympathy and publicity for free of cost. Capital punishment is a right way to reduce the terrorism as well as a crime if the government take the decision for imprisonment to terrorist and murders We all know that criminals commit a crime only when their mind is unsound and are anxious and not in a right state of mind. They do know it's wrong. But they can't control their emotions. If there is Capital Punishment Certainly they will have a fear of death. It is a fear factor which makes make them think twice before the decisions. It is like saying people can do crimes, harm others for their benefits, takes rest in jail, and comes later few years out from prison and do things again. Not giving them the punishment they deserve will encourage others to be a criminal. The government will have to spend billions of rupees for their The jails in India will be populated. Rights of our country if we give them severe punishment then they will free after some years and they try to take the revenge which leads to rape and murder and also a terrorist who get caught in our country. If our country doesn't give them capital punishment then they will think easy. Capital punishment must be given on the basis of the crime of the person, not on the basis of the age of the person i.e.it must be like what we do we do for other we get it back in the same way. Capital punishment means death penalty which could not be banned for terrorists because of its matter of nation.
At last, I will say that if capital punishment will give to terrorist then terrorist will think thousand times before committing any terrorist activities.
|Amisha Singh said: (Sep 9, 2016)|
I am strongly in favour of capital punishment because the criminals who do the crimes don't have the right to live on this earth, before commiting such crimes they don't even think about the effects.
|Prashant said: (Sep 9, 2016)|
|Capital Punishment saves fund and environment from being exploited and gives a hope to the victim's family.
The probability of the occurrence of the crime would reduce due to the severity of the punishment.
|Queen Victoria said: (Sep 7, 2016)|
According to me, definitely CP should be allowed. Because I think this can be a strong step which we can take to eradicate this dirt from our society.
After all, it's a severe problem and thousands of people a highly affected.
And I would also like to answer to all those who wrote life is all about second chance. Yes, I agree with this. But my dear, about whom we discussing are the culprit who doesn't fear death. They are totally unsound and also I would say totally brainwashed! For this, we can take up some other solutions but the easiest I think is death(cp), "Because fear makes and stops a person to commit many things".
|Tista Nath said: (Sep 4, 2016)|
|A crime should be treated as a crime, the criminal is NOT the victim who is need of counselling! the problem in this case is that the crime in question is not balanced with the necessary punishment and hence the crime to the perpetrators loses all severity as an act against justice against nature itself. The people who commit these atrocities lack empathy, they lack morals and as such they are a direct threat to the very fabric of society and should be first and foremost treated as such. With the flimsy laws in place we lay helplessly vulnerable to such vices. We must first remove such elements and having removed them. Having said that not all crimes are the same, but every case should be put through severe scrutiny and not in a biased light with the policy of keeping the accused in a "benefit of doubt" until proved guilty state. Punishment is a must and as per the severity of the situation in terms of the criminal's position capital punishment worth consideration. Then and then only can we afford to consider if redemption is even possible. Capital punishment is an undeniable necessity which cannot be ruled out if we ever hope to cleanse society and the lack of it only goes to show weakness on the part of the law of the land.|
|Sahil Reza Khan said: (Sep 4, 2016)|
|According to me, Capital punishment should be banned because even if they are criminals but they are still humans, we as a human should have no right to kill someone this way, everyone in this world deserves a second chance.|
|Charani said: (Sep 1, 2016)|
|It's the crime to be eliminated from the country, not the criminals. The criminals should be given counseling. Killing them doesn't give anything to the country.|
|Lindokuhle Mfazwe said: (Aug 28, 2016)|
|Capital punishment should not be abolished, instead, rapists and terrorist criminals must be killed.
Death penalty reduces drugs, murder and rape.
Criminals commit crime because they know that they won't be killed and that they spend a short time in prison especially here in some countries criminals use witchcraft for their terrorist activities.
|Vikas Dongre said: (Aug 27, 2016)|
|Yes, capital punishment should ban. Are we still out of the crime are we still out of the terrorists?
No because only criminals are being eradicated not the crime.
|Sayyed Khalid said: (Aug 25, 2016)|
|Capital punishment should not be abolished, instead, modify it to the way Government of Saudi Arabia does.
Rapists and Terrorists should be hanged to death in front of public, not in jails in early mornings, they will get sympathy and publicity for free of cost!
|Prince Gupta said: (Aug 24, 2016)|
|Capital punishment is a right way to reduce the terrorism as well as crime if the government take the decision for imprisonment to terrorist and rapist. Then it will be increase the cost of government. Thus for reducing the rape case or terrorism.
The government should take the decision of capital punishment against rapist as well as terrorism. At last, I will say that if capital punishment will give to terrorist then terrorist will think thousand times before committing any terrorist activities.
|Rahul said: (Aug 23, 2016)|
|According to my opinion, It should be there in a rape case and in terrorist activities. These type of people should be hanged till death in public place incase of jails.|
|Forever Anonymous. said: (Aug 20, 2016)|
|This is a confusing question for me. I'm in favor of CP but then, there is one question that boggles me all the time. We all know that criminals commit a crime only when their mind is unsound and are anxious and not in a right state of mind. They do know it's wrong. But they can't control their emotions. Certainly, they must be having a fear of death but if they overcome it, it surely means their will to kill is greater than the fear of death. So How does killing criminals work to reduce crimes?|
|Debate Addict said: (Aug 19, 2016)|
|Hi, I am Shruti.
I think it should be allowed.
Rape rates, murders etc are increasing day by day.
1. Jails would be populated and life imprisonment isn't cheered for our economy. We have more important fields where GDP is needed.
2. The criminal mush is tortured. Made to repent and then hanged to death. This would create a fear in the mind of people to commit crimes.
3. An eye for an eye makes the world go blind. But leaving that person unpunished won't get you back your lost eye! The pain given by a criminal must be returned to him with a penalty of death punishment.
4. Freeing a criminal * (including the juvenile 16-18) according to Indian CP will only support the youth to commit crimes without the fear of GOI.
|Victor Kayode Jonesicial Commission Should Ammend said: (Aug 1, 2016)|
|Capital Punishment should be allowed to stay because Eradicating it will mean that Nigeria will be subtly towing the path of Sodom and Gomorrah. Furthermore, Eradicating it will me that we are telling God who authorized whoever kill somebody should be killed. It should be noted that the 2 (two) Thieves with Jesus on the Cross were Armed Robbers. One of them repented But Jesus told him that he should face the Death Penalty first, then He would be with him in Paradise.
What I think should be done is that the Judicial Commission should amend the Professional Ethics for Legal Practitioners to the effect that any Lawyer who want to obtain the title of S.A.N. (Senior Advocate of Nigeria) should try to win at least 2 (two) Criminal Cases with Capital Punishment attach to them. This is because Our Lawyers are Lazy! and this is shown in the Judgement that is pronounced in the Court.
|Aniruddha said: (Jul 31, 2016)|
|I believe that CP should be abolished.
Life is all about being given a Second Chance.
In this view, A person committing a crime should be subjected to Rehabilitation Rather than Imprisonment.
A person should be made aware of his wrong deeds rather than being subjected to rigorous imprisonment and CP. A person commuting a crime has certainly Numerous Reasons behind it-may be unhealthy background, greed, jealousy, or any other motive. Everyone is aware of the fact of Judicial System and thus No one would Commit any sort of Crime for Fun or Experiment ation. And so it's necessary to understand the Criminal's mental state and treat accordingly to provide him a Better and Secure Life in Future. Our Constitution doesn't provide Right to kill any Human, and why should it?
If God is the one who gives us Life, it's He who should decide when He wants to take us Back to Him.

|Faiz Ahmad said: (Jul 24, 2016)|
|Capital punishment must never be condemned but this is to be executed in severe crimes. Likewise, rapists must be either hanged or punished on the roadside as practiced by the gov.of Saudi Arabia.
Through such a strict penalty a criminal/rapist would think thousand times before committing. But friends there is an issue, there must be a proper jurisdiction with no corruption because it often happens that an innocent is put to punishment.
|Unknown said: (Jul 19, 2016)|
|If your not doing anything wrong and you feel fear about rape, murder, theft etc so it's not your living style its failure of law and justice.
If the government gives me permission to punish the criminal for ten days I will show that he will beg to you for kill himself and I will also have lots of plans about it for it will not going to happen in future, I am dam sure., if the government gives any authority.
|Andrew said: (Jul 17, 2016)|
Most humans think that if they ruled the world, everything would be better, and that's because we tend to think that our opinions are absolute.
Many of us can say "we are all humans, we have the same rights", "we need to change them so we clean crime from the root" as well as we can say "fear is the best way to obey".
CP may be terrible as it is for some people, and yes, killing is cruel, but sadly, it's the most effective way to decrease crime. Trying to reinsert criminals to society may be effective for some, but most criminals just won't repent (or maybe they will fake their repentance). The best way to end crime is to eradicate it from its root, but that "root" can be taken as two different things: "education" and "life". So if we try to uproot this corruption, we can try to,
- Educate people to know what is right and what is wrong, and rehabilitate the corrupted, or.
- Exterminate corruption as deeply as possible.
Sadly, in a world already corrupted, the first one cannot happen. As cruel as it is, killing criminals is the best way to end this up; the easiest and the most effective. You may think "but people can be blamed for a crime they did not commit", then 1-the executed died innocent and that is what counts 2-we can try to make the "unproven criminals" stay in jail. In fact, they can be used as workers. Everyone has their own opinion, but an experience is what makes us think of an actual pseudo-solution.
As unperfect as it is, CP should be allowed.
|Gs Chandy said: (Jul 15, 2016)|
|My personal opinion is that it is uncivilized for the 'state' to take life: that is "murder by the State". But this' only my personal opinion - and probably does not adequately consider the pain of the relatives of the people who've been murdered, who probably want the murderer (s) to die.
It's yet another complex societal issue, which we've not learned how to deal with properly.
|Rushabh said: (Jul 15, 2016)|
|Studies have proven that capital punishment isn't an effective deterrent from crime.
Punishment should be more severe and painful for serious crimes; for examples,
If a person rapes somebody, he should be castigated with a hot iron rod mark on a visible body part (face/hand) so that in the future nobody trusts them because they can see the mark. All this should be done publicly.
I know that the punishment is very violent. And yet those who might oppose this view may have a subconscious thought that they might end up raping somebody.

|Siya said: (Jul 6, 2016)|
|CP should be allowed for extreme criminals depending on their crime intensity. We all know that life in prison is pleasantly bearable if you have money, you live a content life there. It's like another home for the criminals, they make contacts there and live a camp life! Just imagine if the victim was your mother, father, brother or sister. Would you want that criminal to live a peaceful life in prison?|
|Imran Ansari said: (Jun 30, 2016)|
|In my view, C.P is necessary for each and everyone how is doing the small or big crime. If we give to C.P to criminal's once and next time the other criminal will think hounsand of time.|

|Hello, friends, I think that capital punishment is very necessary because without cp the criminal and both will be fearless as we can see best example in our country there very few cases we listen to give a cp of culprits so they think they will go in cell after that they will again get out and start the crime.|
|Sanghamitra Pathak said: (Jun 14, 2016)|
|Hi everyone who is reading it.
I don't know why the government is following the strict law of killing people when they do any criminal offense. Even lord Jesus has said that "Don't hate the criminal, but hate the crime" still then why is this sort of cruelty to the criminals! If a criminal is killed then the person just dies but the thoughts don't die with him only! The quality of mercy is more important than the king's crown & scepter. A person with the quality of mercy is compared with the Divine power. So one must be given a chance to rectify his mistakes. That's all what I wanted to say. Thank you.
|Deeznuts said: (May 31, 2016)|
|Hello everyone, let me ask you a question "have you ever thought of killing someone" or thought you were going to be the one executed. Have you ever thought how bad it is to suffer when they shove a needle in your arm to stop your heart? Getting electrocuted at 100kilowalts or watching someone getting electrocuted is still wrong. They say it what's right, its justice. It isn't justice its just wrong why should they kill, to show killing is wrong? The fact of the matter is that this shouldn't be allowed. Almost 2% of our population has died from lethal injection. That might not sound many buts that are almost more than 30 thousand people.|
|Rohil Mahajan said: (May 23, 2016)|
|There should be more strict laws for criminal offences. Torture law should be imposed and capital punishment shouldn't be banned. A criminal who has committed the severe crime should be treated brutally and should be tortured.|
|Tarun Sharma said: (May 15, 2016)|
|According to me, capital punishment should be given to the culprit, if our government will not give cp to the culprit. Some time after they will come out of jail, and they will try again to crime. If our government will capital punishment to the culprit, they can't try again to crime, and there related will not make any criminal in his family!.|
|Nav said: (May 9, 2016)|
|People who commit crime they deserve the punishment, punishment should be according to what crime they did. Long term term punishment should give to only that person who is really very dangerous for society or for that person how not deserve the freedom.|
|Shanti S said: (May 2, 2016)|
|According to me, CP is just a temporary solution for crimes. As we know that in Delhi gang rape case the criminal has been given CP but is it any change in a number of rape cases, instead of falling it has been rising. As we know that terrorist has cyanide and they are not scared of death. So friends say me that how you support CP.|
|Sutapa said: (Apr 21, 2016)|
|I think CP shouldn't be banned. The criminals who have destroyed the lives of not only the victim but the entire family should not be allowed to live.|

If someone has the right to take innocent people's life then the law that rules for people's welfare will have the right to punish when it offends its people. It is a fear factor which makes make them think twice before the decisions.
It is like saying people can do crimes, harm others for their benefits, takes rest in jail, and comes later few years out from prison and enjoy? or do things again?
If something is making good to other peoples then it is not bad to a thing like this (cp)!

|Death penalty for individuals who don't have any fear of death which means talking to the deaf person who can't even listen. Rather we can use them as human Shields on borders, guinea pigs on Mars mission, land them on volcanoes to collect samples, put them in sewers to clean public drainage, ask them to build roads on hills and finally taking hell out of them every day. Don't let them exit so easily, let's make them pay. So abolish CP makes more sense.|
|Nakul said: (Mar 13, 2016)|
|In my opinion capital punishment is necessary, CP (Capital Punishment) create a fair in mind of peoples it will help to reduce the crimes.
Some people say. Only God has a right to take one's life, Any other have the same right?
But all human has equal right to live here. One kill other, the other person right to life is violated so what we can do?
The victim has a right to get Justice?
He kills ones more too.
Then what we can do?
I think CP is the best punishment for it.
|Mohit Tomar said: (Mar 4, 2016)|
|Hi friends, CP should be banned because I think criminal attack have been influence that time. Indian government should be stick action against criminals. If we want that crime have destroyed from India. Today crime on top in India. We Will Change over administration.|
|Pooja Dutta said: (Feb 27, 2016)|
|This has been quite a controversial and hot debate since the last couple of years. I have went through everyone's opinions here and would like to thank everyone for your perspectives and speaking your mind!
In my opinion, capital punishment or death penalty should be banned for any form of crimes. Well, my opinion might seem very stupid and nonsensical to many people. But the ground reality here is that capital punishments and any form of death penalties doesn't deter crimes from happening. I myself vehemently supported capital punishments until just one year back, since I was of the opinion that killing or hanging a criminal would prevent other criminals from committing the same crime and that it would safeguard our society. It is widely considered that imposing death penalties on criminals would lessen crimes. Yet, that's not what has been occurring.
The more aggressively a nation applies capital punishment, the more the crime rate increases. There's no proof in this world that capital punishments has deterred crimes in any way. Crime is a vicious cycle which only perpetuates if we use violence in dealing with violence. An eye for an eye makes the world go blind! Take for example the countries which practise the imposing of capital punishments- Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, China, all the middle east nations except Israel, some underdeveloped nations in Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, United States and our very own India.
Do you see something common here? In these very nations where capital punishment is carried out, the crime rates are the highest. Whereas the rest of the world including Europe where it's banned, the crime rates are negligible.
I think life imprisonment without parole is the best form of punishment a criminal could ever get. The criminal will always one day or the other in his life repent the horrendous deed he did within the poor solitary confinements of his prison. And most importantly, age shouldn't be a deciding factor in this matter. Even a juvenile of 16-18 years should be imposed this punishment.
Capital punishments allow the real convicts to go scot free just because he is a juvenile and the ones who aren't that guilty enough or even innocent gets hanged. This misappropriation will go away once capital punishment gets banned and life imprisonment without any restrictions on age of the criminal is imposed. In many cases, casteism, race and poverty comes to the forefront when a person is to be hanged. The wealthy and the person who could afford the best lawyers is treated in a better way By the judiciary and the one who is from a backward race and poor gets biased treatment and consequently gets hanged.
Terrorists are one group who should be tortured mercilessly from time to time during their solitary life imprisonments. The same goes for rapists. Believe me friends, death sentence does nothing to the criminal which a life imprisonment without parole does. It means endless tortures every day of their life until death. It also allows room for guilt and conscience, where they couldn't do anything apart from repenting every day of their lives but without mercy from anyone.
Crime rates have consequently decreased in nations where the death penalty has been abolished. Whereas in countries where it's practised, all forms of crimes including murder and rapes are coming up day after day. Researches and studies have proved that capital punishment has never been successful to deter and prevent any forms of crime to happen.
Lastly, capital punishment is a hugely expensive business which involves plentiful of funds due to the legal proceedings and lawyer fees. All these money should instead be used for the benefits and assistance of the murdered victim's family by providing them funds and counselling. They are the ones who are ones who suffer the aftermath of the crime the most all through their lives.
Killing the convict doesn't have the power to offer them any peace of mind, even if we think that it does. It's a lose which they carry for the rest of their lives. It should be the duty of the state to provide them with any assistance they need. Crimes can never be cured with crimes, but by treating the grass root problems of the country which is corruption at all levels, poverty and most importantly the social evils lingering everywhere like casteism.
I am sure my opinions won't be taken positively by a majority, but I posted what I opine is true. Thanks!

|I have gone through with all given comments but somewhere we are losing our Faith from the heart of the people, one sincere question to all participants who are here my dear young friends how long are we going to minimize our government mistakes?
If law and legislation system is there as you people have mentioned capital punishment shouldn't be banned then why government of India is not accounting the killers of rajiv Gandhi? Aren't those deserve for capital punishment? They are killers they killed our former prime minister they why capital punishment isn't for them?
|Anant Tewari said: (Feb 15, 2016)|
|I believe capital punishment should not be banned. And here is the reason why I am saying this.
1. A terrorist or some psychopath kills hundreds of people. And victim who dies is definitely someone's father, mother, brother or son and someone must be waiting for them at home. If the criminal lives then the family members of the victim will never be at peace.
2. Not giving them the punishment they deserve will encourage others to be a criminal.
3. Government will have to spend billions of rupees for their safety just like in the case of kasab.
4. The jails in India will be populated.
|Amit Kumar said: (Feb 4, 2016)|
I think capital punishment should be allowed because if someone has taken 100 people's lives so we can go to improve that person. It will be injustice to those 100 people. By giving an chance to that person we will come in category of criminals.
|Udit Ksrki said: (Feb 2, 2016)|
|According to me capital punishment is must in our country because the person who rapes who murder are the person who don't follow the fundamental.
Rights of our country if we give them severe punishment then they will free after some years and they try to take the revenge which leads against rape and murder and also terrorist who get caught in our country. If our country don't give them capital punishment then they will thought easy. So as per my opinion capital punishment must be there in our country.
|Prachi Lohariwal said: (Jan 23, 2016)|
|Hi, according to me capital punishment should be banned because people who commit inhuman crimes like rapes and acid attacks should not directly be hanged but should be first tortured to such an extent that they realize what would that girl had feet when she had undergone such a treatment.
After this inhuman behaviour they should be left in a place where no one can meet them place where they can't even get the sunlight and rarely a square meal per day. As we all know that a executioner who gives one death without much fear is not as inhuman as one makes one die every minute and second.
In the Andaman and Nicobar Islands the prisoners are subjected to solitary confinement inside the cellular jails built specially built for that purpose and have no attachment to the outer world. Therefore to conclude I would like to say that capital punishment should be banned and criminals should realize their mistakes before taking their ultimate rest.
|Manoranjan Kumar said: (Jan 13, 2016)|
|Hi dears, I want to share a point about CP.
In my point of view CP shouldn't be banned specially in rape case. At first our government should make a sticks low for rapist, if it clears that he is rapist. On that time our law and order punished him.
|Nidhi Paul said: (Jan 4, 2016)|
|This is a hotly debated topic.
In my view capital punishment should be abolished. Life is given by god. He alone has the right to take it rather capital punishment is inhuman and shows cruelty. And it is a fact too that inhumanity cannot be encountered with inhumanity.
Every sinner has a future and every saint has a past. CP should be replaced by life imprisonment. If the conditions are worse then they should be tortured that the guilty himself pleads for death sentence.
|Abhishek Kamble said: (Jan 1, 2016)|
|Hi, I am Abhishek Kamble.
I think, CP should be banned because when any criminal is hanged, he only dies, but the thoughts of the criminals do not dies.
|Pranjal said: (Nov 3, 2015)|
|Capital punishment is not the solution in terms of crimes like robbery and small crimes but in terms of rape and murder there should be a death penalty and the criminal should be hanged.
Like in the case of Saudi Arabia the rapist is punished on the road for hie crime. A rapist thinks thousand times before committing a rape.
|Pathan Sohil said: (Nov 2, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should not be banned because in India criminal are increasing day by day. Though government had kept C.P. Criminals are not decreasing.|
|Amol said: (Oct 30, 2015)|
|What I think we should first separate the crime person has done what comes under rarest rare and what is not according to me death punishment shouldn't be there for terrorist as the other group of terrorist feels that their colleague has went to heaven and he done good job for their militant group.
Instead government should keep the terrorist in condition where terrorist will ask for death sentence every day govt should torture them and why easy death to terrorist who has killed lots of people. And on the other side there should be death punishment for rape and heinous crimes like honor killing and paid killers.
|Pankit Patel said: (Oct 13, 2015)|
|I read all Views of different guys.
So as per my opinion, in terms of death if criminal accept their mistake and do not have repent for that crime then CP must be there. Our rules are not strict as other countries have so crime and criminal increasing day by day.
Crime is done by mistakenly and person/relatives who suffer from that crime and they allow apology to that criminal then CP should not there only this terms. So rules like Eyes on Eyes.
|Pratyaksha Chandra said: (Oct 12, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should be banned I would like to ask all the people supporting CP that does it make us any better by killing those who kill?
Almost all religious texts say that killing any criminal makes us a bigger criminal. Also CP is taken as an opportunity to take revenge. It does not deter the crime. Mentally sick are also killed innocent ones lose their life.
|Pratyush R. Roul said: (Oct 6, 2015)|
|It seems to be an interesting topic. Well what does this word "Capital Punishment" mean?
Does it mean the final punishment given to a person for the most severe crimes? Well, then is it in our hands. There is above the almighty to read out the final verdict.
Usually the people who have done severe crimes such as rapes, murders, or any other big offence are dealt with capital punishment. I agree that they have done unforgivable offence & should be charged with punishments. But, is death the ultimate solution? No, I don't think so can't they be given a second chance. Some people say that these people should be hanged as it causes less pain. But then, it would be an easy way out for them. What is the use of capital punishment if it does not affect other people. Instead criminals should get a chance to correct themselves. We should help them to correct themselves because by killing these criminals no profit will be gained by the victim's family. Neither would it help to bring back the person to earth again.
By correcting their problems and changing their ideology we have to bring out a change in our society crime is an ideology. It could not be erased as long as we bring about a change in our society. So, it cannot be changed by imposing physical punishments. So, this change should be first brought about at individual level. First of all we should eliminate social evils which degrade our society such as corruption, non-unity among different races, wrong notions, and perhaps the wrong way of carrying out life. In most cases, people due to absence of moral or due to poverty, or because of some ill influence enter into the world of crimes.
Some of them realize about it, but, sometimes it becomes too late for them. By applying capital punishment we are not allowing them correct their mistakes and also not to spread the lesson they have learnt, so that, it would lead to an awakening among people.
|Prince Kumar Singh said: (Oct 1, 2015)|
|Capital punishment must be given on the basis of the crime of the person not on the basis of the age of thee person i.e. it must be like what we do we do for other we get it back in the same way.|
|Pranav Ck said: (Sep 30, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should be avoided. Everyone in this world deserves a second chance. Instead of killing them we should give them a chance to correct themselves. Moreover CP is not a solution to any problem.
By killing a person he/she loses life and other people doesn't stop from doing that crime then what is the use of capital punishment?
|Roshan Johny said: (Sep 29, 2015)|
|Hi every one,
Capital punishment or death penalty is imposed by state as punishment for the criminals. If the criminals are allowed in the society again, the security of citizens will be at stake.
Saudi Arabia has a very low rate of crimes because it imposes death penalty and severe punishments. Values and morals must be protected by imposing maximum punishment for the criminals.
So capital punishment is needed in our country.
|Gulshan said: (Sep 25, 2015)|
|I think capital punishment is essential in India, in this modern day there are more crime and criminal, I agree there hundreds of nation which has removed death penalty. But there condition is not too similar with India, and country like United states, China, Pakistan do have capital punishment. So why should we abolish death penalty?|
|Ankit &Amp; Sukesh said: (Sep 25, 2015)|
|Hey guys Ankit here.
A/C to me I think that a rapist shouldn't be hanged because in our constitution every man have the right to live his life. If one should be hanged in the rape case we must have to find that what's the condition in doing that he may be illiterate or he was provoked by others to do that and every one get the chance to improve himself.
|Anushka said: (Sep 22, 2015)|
|The state of our country will never improve if no strict action is taken against the criminals. Merely jailing the criminals is not enough they need to be hanged or tortured or they will never understand how their victims felt especially women.|
|Abheek Sardar said: (Sep 22, 2015)|
|Hi everyone my name is Abheek.
My opinion is that capital-punishment should not be banned because in today's date criminal cases are increasing day by day though the presence of capital punishment. If it is banned then the criminals in our country will roam freely thinking that whatever they will do, they will be not punished and the criminal cases will also get increased at a high rate.
So it's better that the capital punishment is not banned because still there are many people in our country who get feared of this punishment and think twice before doing it.
|Neha Singh said: (Sep 21, 2015)|
|I think capital punishment should not be banned because it is deterrent which prevents a person to do the crime. And due to the fear of death they won't do this crime again as the jails are overcrowded the capital punishment should be given. Let 100 guilty go Scott-free, let not an innocent be hanged. As we have a human rights the victims also have the climatology. So timely justice is required. It is given at the rarest of the rare cases.|
|Student said: (Sep 8, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should not be banned as the prison may think that even though he is caught and is given lifetime imprisonment he can fill his stomach sitting in the jail. But can any type of imprisonment repair the irreparable loss of loosing a life of a person? At least capital punishment creates a fear among the criminals that they may have pay their own life for taking someone else life.|
|Kartikeya said: (Sep 5, 2015)|
|Everyone agrees that crime is bad and we need to stop it. This seems sensible and logical in every way, until we ask the question: Do we need the death penalty to be 'tough' on crime?
According to me Capital Punishment SHOULD be done away with because if there are death penalties, one would think for a thousand times before doing a crime. This will also help in creating a fear factor in the minds of the criminals. The terrorists and rapists should not be allowed to roam freely in the society. People like them should be publicly hanged so that everyone will come to know that violating someone else's rights cannot be tolerated in a DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY like India. I think that capital punishment should be allowed because it creates a lesson in front of the public or criminals that law is made for the public and if we abolish the law by committing the crime it would create a penalty for that person.
On the other hand it also depends upon the crime committed by the criminal. If the crime is heinous in nature like sexual harassment, honor killing you can't spare them by just giving them imprisonment, because it will just encourage others to commit the crime as they will not have the fear of death in their minds. While punishing we should think about the innocent public in general instead of the criminal who did the scandalous crime. Abolishing death penalties will be injustice to the victims who suffered from the heinous acts of the criminals. Death penalty acts as a fear factor to many people who could have turned into a criminal and it is very important in a country like India.
Thank you, and that's all I would like to say.
|Baabu said: (Sep 1, 2015)|
|Apart from Terrorists, hired killers also should be given capital punishment. They kill unknown people just for money without any previous enmity. If these hired criminals are not given capital punishment the society will soon become barbarian.
These criminals come out on bail just in 15 days and commit more and more murders for money. They don't respect the law much. Because they have money power to influence to any level.
|Arvind said: (Sep 1, 2015)|
|I want to say that, fear is a things which make everyone follow the rule and regulation of any country. If one has done a crime and is subjected to capital punishment, then he has too pay for what he has done.
Excusing any person will in some way boost the crime. In modern era when people are more materialistic and are not interested in spiritual studies, are losing all sense of what to do and what not to do. Thy don't have any clear goal of life. That's they do what they think is good for them.
So Government should help bonafide spiritual leaders to educate people in mass about spirituality and to act in harmonizing way in nature.
Only giving capital punishment and not taking any realistic approach to stop crimes will lead to nowhere and only increase in crime, riots etc. So please guide and take care of each and every section of this country so that they lead meaningful and happy life.
|Ravichandran said: (Aug 29, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should be there or not. It should be decided by voting by public through by FREE SMS so that all public should vote. Any political party if gives assurance that they will implement punishment of hanging for all personnel involved in murder/rape or gang rape without consent/kidnapping for sexual assault/for brothel/extortion/bank robbery/anti national cases directly or indirectly will come to power with majority without any alliance.
A Court deciding capital punishment should be reviewed by a bench of 3 judges (whose names should not disclosed to media) of higher Court on getting appeal within 3 months of judgement given by lower Court.
But a person killing a person who killed his own family members should not be given capital punishment though he should not take law in his hands. Learned judges should take in to consideration all pros & cons of the cases before giving his final verdict.
No mercy petitions to president should be allowed or if allowed it should be decided within a week. Then only the strength of criminals will be reduced and actual capacity of Tihar will be maintained. People supporting no capital punishments should think nowadays jails becomes university of technology for criminals to learn new techniques.
Even a single criminal will not change if goes to jail for major crimes. Rape could be averted if old system of child marriage is comes again with fixing minimum age by the Doctors and also by banning of Horoscope matching system so that people get marry in time. This is my personal opinion, may be a public opinion.
|Ribor Kharsynniang said: (Aug 28, 2015)|
|Because being a democratic country like India, everyone have the right to live, therefore Capital Punishment is not fully applicable. But, if Capital Punishment is often applicable also, the criminal will kill the victim. For Eg. A rapist will kill a girl because he know if he let the girl live he will be sentence to death.
Abolition and promotion of Capital punishment is already a controversial in the first ground. How about leaving the decision to the victim or victim's family whether to let the person live or not, or harm the reproductive organ, if in the rape case?
|Diva said: (Aug 20, 2015)|
|This whole death penalty thing makes no sense. It's like the government will kill the prisoner for killing a person.
How does this make the government any different from the killer. You are killing a person for killing a person. Then aren't you committing the same crime?what lesson are you giving to the prisoner that you'll die and even if he regrets it, what can he do? It's too late to change anything.
You should allow him to live under the supervision of people so if he does a crime again he would be imprisoned for life. Why don't we start by using words instead of guns. "death penalty is a murder".
|Anwesha said: (Aug 19, 2015)|
|According to me capital punishment should not be abolished. If there is capital punishment, criminals will have fear factor in their minds. The terrorists and rapist should not be allowed to roam freely in the society. Rapists should be hanged in front of the public so that everyone will come to know that girls are not sex toys.|
|Urja said: (Aug 19, 2015)|
|In my opinion death penalty should be there in India so that one would think a thousand time before doing so or becoming a criminal.|
|Prashant said: (Aug 18, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should not be banned in India but it should be more specified and more descriptive so that any innocent person not get punished by this as per my opinion CP should be more worst than hanging people because it is easiest way of dead and terrorist who kills thousands of people and by taking only one life of him or her is not Justice to all those who are killed by them.|
|Sonam Kumar Yadav said: (Aug 17, 2015)|
|Friend have you ever read a newspaper article from a girl's point of view today India is crime capital jail's are full of criminals India in my point of view requires capital punishment. There are pro's and con's.
There should have a fear of death in one's mind which could resist them from committing crime. This should be continued till crime rates are in controls, till the last justices is delivered to the family's of victim.
|Arjunpat said: (Aug 14, 2015)|
|People say capital punishment should not given then fine the offender should tortured based on the crime and should be made to suffer, but of purse it is kinder to kill him so why are people against justice, are they against punishment of the offender because that is ridiculous.|
|Anonymous said: (Aug 14, 2015)|
|I don't think that the persons who commit such crimes are human beings. So I don't the should have any human rights. Death penalty should never be abolished because abolishing of death penalty will create an thinking of injustice for the victims of the crime.
But whomever it is given there should be an proper evidence of the crime.
|Pratyasha Swain said: (Aug 14, 2015)|
|Capital punishment should be given to the rarest of the rare crime. In a democratic country like India people should have the right to life. And while punishing we should think of the right of innocent people in general, not of the accused who did the heinous crime.|
|Charu Khare said: (Aug 14, 2015)|
|I think so capital punishment should be given in Indian context because its very necessary for those criminals who think that they can do crime freely and no one says or told anything to him and even not judiciary also see every crime his its a different level so we have to make a fear of punishment in their minds and according to theirs crimes judiciary take any action against to them.|
