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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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".

As per the category the punishment should be decided. Government should come up with this reforms. In case of minor, I totally disagree for the capital punishment.

Yes capital punishment is very necessary for India and all over country because its the only way according to me where the criminal can think before any crime. Every crime has a different level, so punishment should be done crime wise.

Criminal is not born as criminal the environment, their education, other activities make them to attempt crime which slowly turns them a criminal, because their is no punishment when he turning to be a criminal, if their is a fearful punishment so the criminal must think to be a criminal.

Till now executions is very rare cases seen, so according to me please do not take it in are cases. If the crime done so take a powerful action. Yes chance is one factor that can be given situation wise to the criminal. Thank you.

I think this is the worst thing in our society. We should think that if a criminal who are doing heinous crime will not be punished according to his crime then what will happen to the justice of victims.

Capital punishment as a form of punishment must be removed from the statute book of all countries. Death penalty is barbaric! No civilised society can go with it. The vast majority of criminals are engaged with crimes not with a notion that they would be held by the law.

When they are indulging in crimes they think by suppressing the evidence they could escape. That is why even in Gulf countries also crimes are on the rise. Instead of capital punishment life long imprisonment can be given.

The punishment is not only for the criminals but it also spread the message in society that "the one who is wrong will deserve punishment" but today's man made justice system a puppet. Strong people use power to get rid of all the criminal cases and weak people only suffers. Our justice system in India is biased and every judge and lawyer know it by heart.

I don't think capital punishment is suffering it is pain for 5second only. But life imprisonment is suffering for whole life. So capital punishment should be banned, more time criminal ll spent miserable time in jail more ll be punishment and more ll be the massage for society.

I think the whole concept of torturing a criminal till he pleads for death is just wrong. We in a civilized and humane society cannot undertake such activities. How can anyone decide how much a criminal should be tortured before he is killed? Our judges? I hardly think so.

This is the 21st century and we live in a democratic society, not some monarch or barbaric tribe that we'll leave it up to the king or the public to beat the criminal to death. What we can do is that we keep capital punishment, but bring in public hanging or an equally painless yet gruesome method of beheading.

As far as the pain for the Criminal is concerned, he/she should be given the verdict and then given a few years of rigorous punishment before his public hanging/beheading. In my opinion, the mental agony combined with solitary punishment will be enough to set an example for others as well as serve justice to the victims family.

Craig said: (Mon, Jul 6, 2015 05:25:36 PM)    
Hello everyone,

I am Craig and I want to express my ideas on capital punishment. Capital punishments should only be implemented for heinous crimes like terrorism, genocide etc. A person who has no control over his mind and has no possibilities of changing should be charged with death penalties. The purpose of putting a person behind bars is to make him aware of his mistake and making him enter society again but a persons life should not be put in the hands of another person.

On the other hand we can sentence a prisoner to jail for lifetime. But in the case of India I might have to go for capital punishments cause the victim is not given much justice. Criminals are released on bails and they repeat the same thing sometimes they even kill the victim after being released so as to take revenge. I hope there comes a change.

Thank you!

The parliament terror attack, Nirbhaya case, attack of 26/11, 1993, are not a general crime for any country so it supports capital punishment like Afjal guru, Kasab etc but in the case of Dhananjay chattargee who had hanged after 14 years of life imprisonment.

Hello every one.

I think that now a days such criminals never afraid of death, so give them death by torturing them at high extent. In Nirbhaya case, it published publicly and every one got to know what happened to her, but in many other similar cases like Nirbhaya never published and no one know about those rapist.

So capital punishment never should be banned but before giving them death, we have to get information from such criminals or rapist that why they did those things? what is the reasons behind them by torturing them.

So we can control other similar type crimes or rapes. I think to torture those type of rapist is best option, torturing them at high extent until they plead for death from government.

Hi, I am Durgesh Kumar.

Capital punishment according to India it is very necessity because when any criminal doing crime and after-crime he visit every where because he never think about own life but main time and after crime for few minute when he listen suppose he is going to hang on after 2 day that time he fell fear. After this capital punishment he again never think for murder.

One point when any criminal came from jail after own case that time he not feel bad. And again he think going for murder. So capital punishment is necessary for India. In my I say it is never banned in India. When we take a example of Arabian country that is very worst.

Because I listen I don't know very well for some reason they will hanged by Government. I read in some point in upper some one write there that is very bad image for India. Listen bro when we are going to work in a good way that it never become a bad image.

Suppose 10 person going to a rape one small girl and after this gang rape only few year jail and again they are doing gang rape in own country what that is the real bad image of India.

And I think one thing is going to change in investigation because all one take late for any investigation and we cost lots of money for that criminal. As we know India also a poor country and we distribute own money there o I think that is a major problem.

And according to my study in social science death penalty is nice as wish every one that is never banned in India.

In my opinion, I think capital punishment should be made an illegal murder. Every criminals of course welcome death. So its not a solution. But Brutual punishment too is not a legal solution as it creates a bad image of the country. Moreover think of their family, parents who never expected him to be this way, their children.

How will they react to this. Those victims could be made to work in factories, mining, preparing foods for society as well as for them without salaries. These goods could be sent at a cheaper cost and made beneficial for the people.

Hello everyone,

My name is Ahmed from Afghanistan.

I would like to share my views about capital punishments. Here I am in favour and even against capital punishment.

Capital punishment means death penalty which could not be banned for a terrorists because its matter of nation and capital punishment should be avoided because every person on earth have right to live. Punishment should be given to every type of crime the way crime has taken place and whatever the victim suffered a criminal should suffer all that to let them know how victim filed. Criminals doing crime because they don't have fear of death so capital punishment is senseless.

Thank You.

Hello friends I've gone through all the views discussed above and I want to share some my point of view as well.

As rightly said. "An eye for eye makes the whole world blind". Capital punishment should be there for anti nationalist criminals. But for those who commits rape or heinous crimes like that they need more sufferings than whatever they get. My point of view is to give them severe punishment on installments and until and unless he fills the pain of the victim and starts doing just opposite to what he has done keep punishing him.

One day definitely he'll learn a lesson and he will educate others others not to do what he has done. And that day we'll feel that the punishment was right.

Capital punishment means death penalty and though it is violation of human rights. I think it shouldn't be banned. Capital punishment instils fear in an individual and deters him from committing heinous crimes like rape, murder etc.

Punishment to a crime should be so terrible that no one dares commit it again in future. Chopping off the hands for theft, pulling out eye as punishment will definitely help in bringing down the crime rate.

These punishments are quite effective in past and and even today these are practiced in Arab countries. There are strict punishment given for any crime. In order to keep criminals at bay capital punishment or even more harsher punishments should be given to him.

A criminal should always be punished whether the crime is of any level, but not to the death penalty. Everybody have right to live. In present context, our constitution is civilized and is not like the uneducated brutal. If capital punishment is given to the criminals for murders, the government should also hanged to death for taking the criminals life.

As Gandhi says, "An eye for an eye makes whole world blind". So it's not good to take life for a justice. US government have launched the Human Rights Association but still criminals are given capital punishment in US. It doesn't make any sense. So US government should think about it.

I don't think killing is an ultimate option or that it will make the rate of crime go down. (so far it hasn't made any changes). In a country a criminal is tortured to death by throwing stones at them. The more these people are tortured, or the slowly they are killed they will then learn a lesson. They do not fear death at all.

My name is Mohit Gupta and I want to add some value to this discussion by saying that capital punishment is not the ultimate solution. We should try to make people educated about the sufferings of the injured and their family and should torture the criminals by making their lives heel because the criminals don't fear of death.

But at the same time we should hang the terrorists till death when they are found accused of engaging in terrorist activities because it is a issue of national security.

Don't know about any other country but in India it is really a need of the hour because now a a days people are becoming more fearless than ever. Capital punishment is a example to set before them so that they have fear of death before doing any thing brutal like murder or rape.

According to me giving capital punishment is necessary but what is most important is that it should be on right time not some much delay in it. It's annoying that people are getting free sitting in jail at the name of investigating or bla bla. They should be hanged till death at once after their heinous crime.

It will help to create fear among all the criminal. I am perfectly agree with capital punishment. Criminals have no right to enjoy their life as they did not allow the same to innocent people.

Hello friends.

I've gone through all views and I am agree with those person who thinks there should be a harsh punishment instead of death penalty. They are absolutely right and I have also the same thinking on this.

We have seen many cases of rapes and other harassment like acid throw and many other. So, their should be a punishment for them in the same way the victim girl suffers.

Death penalty is a sudden death and that is not a punishment for them they should be familiar of their fault and it also create threat on other culprits.

Their should be a punishment like, beating in front of a crowd for whole day and on all day. And he will gonna dude then give them death penalty.

Good Morning Everyone,

I am Sunil Kumar and I feel that Capital punishment should not be banned in India. Because in recent past we have seen heinous crimes committed by some people and that should only be punished by capital punishment. One more thing is that if these criminals get punished with capital punishment then others will also have fear before even thinking about it.

In some countries it is still practiced and because of the substantial growth in crimes in India we need to keep the capital punishment. And at the same time we should keep educating the public, so that there mindset should change.

I think the conclusion for this discussion is that we should keep capital punishment but should be awarded carefully.

I would like to put forward my views on capital punishment. In my opinion, it is wrong to ban capital punishment in a country like INDIA as there are crimes almost everyday. To remove crime from our country, the only way is to remove crime form its root and that is the minds of the criminals and their group. And the only solution for this is the complete removal of this i.e., death. This is also necessary as there are many lives in a risk. Therefore capital punishment should be continued.

I feel death penalty should be abolished because it is said that "an eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind". What I feel is that the criminals should be tormented to the extent of making them regret their crime.

They should live the rest of their lives in suffering and regret until death knocks their door. Capital punishment is wrong because it ends the criminal's suffering then and there. And that is not right. The criminal should be alive to face every inch of the consequence of his horrendous crime.

I think that capital punishment should be allowed because it creates a lesson in front of the public or criminals that law which is made for the public and if we abolish the law by committing the crime this would create a penalty for that person.

I also want to say that it depends upon the crime if the crime is very serious in nature like rape, honour killing you can't spare them by just giving them imprisonment for some time instead it creates or encourage others to commit the crime because they know they didn't get death penalty so they are free to do what ever they want to. On the other side many foreign countries have law which is very strict like if you caught with drugs you right away get the penalty of death. That's why the crime rate is low there like in Dubai.

In my opinion capital punishment should be abolished. Numerous capital punishments have taken place, but still also the crimes are occurring rampantly. Capital punishments may not manifest that much of fear.

In stead of inflicting capital punishments to the criminals, the punishments should be reduced to making the criminals do manual labour in prisons or by enabling them to do more productive work in jails.

Punishments should enable people to realize their grave mistakes. People should be alive and be made to repent what they have done. Capital punishment is also a form of a brutal murder.

Death sentence is certainly not the right form of punishment. Only god has the right to take somebody's life. No matter how brutal the crime is, let god punish the criminal.

The police or the judiciary should give punishment that generates self realization of the crime they have committed. Criminals should be changed by psychological methods, not by violent means.

I think capital punishment is really a necessity because fear is a emotion which can make our conscience to prevent from fearful cases or issues. By imposing capital punishment people have a state of mind in which they become more alert of the laws and rules.

Capital punishment is a fear factor and a great remedy for the termination of crimes. In some middle east countries they behead in public which is a caution for the public to not to repeat such crimes. Treating and caring a rapist or murderer in jail is an injustice towards the side of the victim.

If retention of death penalty serves any deterrent effect then right from the enactment of Indian penal code the crime should have been stopped,

On the other hand if we see the number of persons hanged in last 10 years in India so its only 3 including 2 hanging in last one year. So in India death sentence is already given in rarest of rare case. Thus, such less number of hanging and that's too in rarest of rare case indicates that it should not be abolish in India at present.

Hi its Vishavjot.

Studies show that the death penalty does save lives. People fear death. This is a natural instinct because death is final. Criminals prefer life in prison over the death penalty. Therefore, if a criminal is committing a crime in a state that uses the death penalty, it would strike some fear in their minds. The fear would be a permanent ending of their actions.

Some studies show that there were 16,000 peoples murdered in 2009 and roughly 6000 in 2010. Although it is hard to say if this decrease was because of the death penalty, it cannot be overlooked. Crimes will severely decrease in many parts of the country who allow capital punishment. It will eradicate the criminal population. It will also dissuade others from committing serious crimes.

If you take examples from recent times there are so many people throughout the world have been executed for different crime. But does it really eradicate a particular crime from our society? Dhananjay was executed in 2006. After his execution just count how many rape cases have been take place in India and now think does that very example works to teach a lesson for our society. If you think in a proper way your answer will be "no". A crime whatever it is always an outcome of illness of mind. So if we want to eradicate crime from our society we need to eradicate that particular cause of mental illness. Giving death penalty or physical punishment does not work to cure social crime.

Hello everyone, this is Sourav Debnath.

Capital punishment:

I think capital punishment should be there in Indian penal code. In India it is given only in the rare cases. But we don't see its given in case of murder or rape which dominating no.of the juvenile crimes this days. Some people says that it is against the human rights. But I don't consider it is against the human rights. The criminals who are killing people, raping people in cool mind, and the terrorist who are killing the innocent people including children and women they don't have the right to live anymore.

In surveys it is found that govt have to spend Rs 88000 per year per criminal to keep them in jail which is more than avg. Per capita income. If a criminal commits a crime at the age of 20 and he lives up to 70 years govt have to spent more than 50 lakhs rps for him, and if we calculate the no.of criminal who have given life time imprisonment, we would be shocked by seeing how much money govt is wasting for them.

In spite of doing this these money can be spent in developmental work for our country.

Not only that death penalty or capital punishment will create a fear factor in the mind of the criminal. They will think twice before committing a crime or going against the law. Because no one wants to die. So it will definitely help to decrease the no.of crimes. So I think capital punishment should be there for brutal crimes such as rapes / murders / mass murders.
