I think capital punishment should not be abolished. Because justice will not be achieved by death penalty. Instead it will be achieved by reforming the person and giving sufficient punishment.

In my opinion I think it shouldnot be banned because there are certain cases in which this punishment seems less than what the crime a person had done like rape, brutally torchering and murdering someone. If the person who commits these crimes then the mindset of that person is never going to change throughout his life. He it is not done and he is given life imprisonment then I don't think it will work because today's generation is full of corruption, who knows he might get bailed next day and commits the same crime again. So it's better to kill his mindset of doing these crimes and this is only possible when he will be hanged to death!

It shouldn't be banned because-.

1) It will vanish the fear from the mind of society leading to more crimes. We should think like criminals first so accordingly me as a criminal, I will have a strong urge to commit a crime and at that time the intensity of fear will be less but then also if there is no capital punishment, I will think like I don't care about life imprisonment. First of all I am not going to be caught and if I got caught then in jail I will think of various methods to break it or live happily there as I will have a lot of time to think and do.

2) We are a part of a group or society to achieve something. We are not free to harm others as a whole. A society shouldn't sacrifice due to one person if one person is affecting all the humanity then it is better to remove that particular criminal from the society. (As in case of apples).

3) We can't say that we don't have any right to kill a person and only the god has that right. Because god can never be a caption of that particular society we have a freedom to decide whether a criminal should be allowed to live or not.

4) By taking his life not only the society will get rid of him but also many who are going to do the same offence for them it will surely a scary one.

5) Capital punishment should be for severe cases only because in small crimes their is hope for criminals that they can change over a period of time. But big crimes not only show severity of crime but also severity of wrong thoughts too. And as we know involuntary action requires thinking and that thinking is not a byproduct of one day and one idea. So to break that cycle of thoughts in that criminal is a very long time process and if the criminal is not ready to change then his thoughts will die only when he is died.

6) By capital punishment we can develop a system in which whole society can understand severity of such crime and by this parents are sure to protect their children from such thoughts and actions.

I think the capital punishment must be given in rarest of rare cases i.e. when the degree of measure is same for eg if some one has brutally murdered someone and it is very much clear that he is the only criminal than it must be given, in all cases it must not be given because it can give an adverse affect on today's generation. I must say that it should not vanished from our Constitution as then it may feel to someone of bo fear of life.

What kind of double standard is that most of the people say that Capital punishment is barbaric and it should be banned. But for eg suppose if someone rapes your sister and you are the judge what punishment would you give to the culprit? 1000% people will say we'll give him death punishment, many will say I will kill people ruthlessly. But if one rapes someone's sister then you say, no capital punishment should be banned so why it's a double standard, Law should be same for all. Isn't it?

Hello,

My name is Ujjwal Chauhan and according to my view, it is a right method to punish the criminals because if we abolish capital punishment. Among common people like us have not any fear that what will be done after doing a crime. And yes it's a right method to abolish crime from the world. And I want to tell you that the criminals have not any fear that what will be after doing a crime like rape, murder, etc. So, guys don't give them another chance to do such a matter again & again even. And we have not to increase their mighty minds.

And with the capital punishment they had a fear & they will think more than 100 times before doing such a crime.

Thanks.

I would like to say capital punishment is not needed for an hour. Because who is getting capital punishments?people who involve in crime like the killing of people, terrorism, and in some serious threats. If we do the same to the person what is the difference between them and us. Also, everyone has right to live. We are not God to take their lives. In some cases, innocent people get capital punishment instead of the right criminal. What an injustice is this. In my opinion, criminals should be given life imprisonment so that they can know the meaning of life. Also, our jail and police station infrastructure should be enhanced. So that no one would escape during imprisonment. That's all I want to say. Thank you all.

I believe that capital punishment should be banned. As Gautam Buddha has said. We have no right to take what we cannot give. While scrolling through I also saw that someone referred to the Ramayana. Well here's the thing: The Ramayana was written by Maharishi Valmiki who before he met Buddha would cut people's fingers and make a necklace out of it. If we come to think. Did he not deserve to die? Did he not take innocent lives? But Buddha forgave him and so he attained enlightenment and wrote the epic Ramayana. Secondly, Ramayana is about a war. A war in which soldiers who had done nothing wrong had to give their lives. And after bringing Sita back she was sent away as she had been in captivity of another man. What wrong did Sita do? Is the respect that should be given to women?

Capital punishment should not be banned. It application in some serious cases is useful. Cases like terrorism, capital punishment is necessary. If we not hang them, then we spent lot of money for their security and other things. Which is wrong. If we hang them then we can save lot of money.

Akhil said: (Jun 4, 2017)  
Capital punishment should be banned. I have many reasons for saying this. Firstly, man does not have the right to kill. It is up to the gods alone. Secondly, the death penalty does not entirely deter crime. Those who want to kill will do it whatever the consequences. Thirdly, innocent victims are being killed, sometimes. They may have not been capable enough to prove their case, so they were called guilty. Finally, the families of those killed go through severe mental trauma and loss. I am sure I wasn't the only one who saw the mother and sister of Myuran Sukumaran on the day of his execution in Indonesia for a drug case.

But this doesn't mean that justice should not be served. People should face the consequences of their wrong doings. Someone who has taken the life of another doesn't deserve to live. But is is not us who should make the ultimate decision, it is God.

Capital punishment should not be banned in India rather it should be used only in only certain cases where the criminal deserves a hard but not harsh one whereas in cases of rape, honour killing the criminal should not be hanged to death rather should be given life imprisonment where the criminal should be beaten on a daily basis where he would cry for death, but death would be given to him so that every person who thinks of raping a girl would first think of its consequences.

In my opinion, the only way punishment would work would be 'retributive justice' and all other objectives such as rehabilitation and reformative justice are bull-shit and need to be scrapped.

Capital punishment is necessary, and applicable in India, as this will set an example to others, securing not only peace but the confidence of the citizens in the government. Confining a person with capital crime in prison leaves the victims or the family of the victims in fear and distress and later develop lack of confidence towards the government and also maintaining a high security prison and protocols for such convicts is expensive for government maintenance (whereas we can use this funds for the development of the nation) and India is capable for initiating capital punishment because we have an independent judiciary (so no politicizing of justice and capital punishment will not be misused). In conclusion, I don't want to know that Osama bin Ladin or any other terrorists and rapist running around or sitting in prison with a chance of jailbreak.

Capital punishment should be banned because nowadays the people have money can easily escape from the crimes. In front of money there is no rapist, no criminals and no crimes, then why should we support capital punishment? sometimes the non-criminal persons became the part. Now so many countries abolished or banned capital punishment and introduce new laws and new punishments for different crimes.

Capital punishment should be banned, am not supporting the criminals. The criminals who is doing cruel crimes should be punished cruelly, very cruelly.

Most of the criminals are not afraid of punishments, because there is no problem for food, proper shelter, and safe too. Today the world and laws nothing in front of money.

It should obviously be abolished. It's an inhuman act. When we can't give life to anyone, we don't have any right to snatch it. Capital punishment is not the only solution because it doesn't give chance to realise the mistakes. The need of the hour is to make people responsible for better nation and initiate them to involve themselves in hurtful acts. Instead this the victim should be given chance to take his revenge from the criminal but not as a mean of death.

Capital punishment should abolish.

Hello friends,

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello, everyone.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi, everyone.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
