Capital punishment should not be banned. If capital punishment is banned then our country should be fearless of terrorism they have done there a lot of crime work like rape, murder such that type of thing should be happening in our country. It is happening much more than previous crime so that capital punishment should not be banned.

Well, according to me.

I would say that capital punishment should not be banned because the rate of crime would be increased and people would feel unsafe in our country. The people would be free to do all that crime which are unacceptable by someone and one important thing is that someone would have to suffer just because of that person who leads with a crime.

So, Capital Punishment should not be banned.

Capital Punishment should not be banned.

It supports a strong framework when it comes to striking fear in the minds of criminals. While it is important that this punishment is given for serious crimes like Espionage i.e. spying on the country, hijacking of airplane resulting to death of civilians and treason. It should also be given to criminals who have commited gruesome crimes like sodomony, rape of women, children and young boys.

Crimes like manslaughter, mass-murder, acts of terrorism, acts because of xenophobia towards a group of people, race or religion, people who conspire against our country and anyone who threatens the nation, like trying to take over the government.

But capital punishment is also awarded for crimes like murder during kidnapping, decoity with murder, where if more than five individuals participate in the act and one of them commits murder then all are liable for the crime and it is punsihable by death or even in kidnapping.

These are the offense where one can raise the question whether the liable should be punished by death?

I believe that even with these crimes, it depends on the degree at which the crime has been commited and how to what extent the accomplace was involved in them.

So, capital punsihment is important for the right crime, therefore it should not be banned.

I think capital punishment should be there but in rare cases, like for a terrorist who has taken life of number of peoples, and for some real rapist also but not everytime because if we make it such a normal punishment then accused were not afraid of it and it will be lost that fear which is required in every one mind.

Through that may be chances of crime increases.

Capital punishment is dead penalty (like hanging, crucifying etc). In my opinion, it should be banned. Because criminal do crimes and that they torture victims for hours then they get capital punishment (hang to death) which last for a minute or more which does not made them to repent which may cause another criminal to be rise, because of this. So to avoid than we can make them to be in life sentenced they will have time to repent and may be a new life. As we are human have No rights to take a life as we can't give a life to death. So it should be banned.

According to me, the Capital 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.

What is the porpose of giving punishment to someone?

Punishment is given so that a person can realize his fault and can regret that. So of if we allow this and snatches the life of someone, the very purpose of punishment undermines somewhere. It is not a mark of civilization. I wanna let you know that violence is violence whether it is done legally or illegally.

It should be banned because in my view its a small punishment for those criminals or are murderer and rapist. Because they can't realise every time their mistake. Punishment should be like for them what kills them all the time and gives pain them. Like on the open road among all the people they should be beaten by the hunter until he died.

Because in the place of capital punishment is not a good idea lifetime imprisonment because we can't risk for another crime that criminal would escape by power and again commit a crime again.

Hello, I think Capital Punishment should be allowed as when a person commits a crime (in the case if CP was banned) he or she would think it's not much of a big deal to commit a crime and even he/she goes to jail would try ways to escape/bribe/offer bail. Even when we take a terrorist or a criminal who has gone beyond his/her limits by committing a serious crime, (if C.P was banned) we put him/her for life imprisonment giving them severe punishment. Then this instead of removing the thought of doing crime it would increase the anger of the criminal and force him/her to kill the one who is giving severe punishments.

Obviously, the capital punishment should be banned. Kill the crime and not the criminal. Many liberal democracies are completely pro-life when it comes capital punishment and as a result a lot of their prisons are running out of criminals. Whereas in a country like India, where capital punishment is quite common, You might find high rates of crimes. Social Awareness is the way forward, Many of the criminals are victims of social trauma and psychological trauma. We need to understand their condition before commenting about the punishment they should get. Rehabilitation is a must in prisons. I think countries like India should retrospect the methodology of dealing with criminals in the European democracies.

Hi friends.

When we talk about capital punishment it has both pros and cons.

For example, if we allow CP the others may say it is a violation of FR (rt to life). Otherwise, if we abolish it there is no chance to curb the criminals further it leads to increase of crimes and violence against innocent and moreover they also criticise the government.

So, what I mean to say is "cp should allow according to the intensity of crime". As it is better when compared to allowing and abolishing cp completely.

Thank you.

Capital Punishment i.e. death penalty. I think that capital punishment must be allowed in the country as India has now become the habitat of criminals, evident from the ranking of India in regard of woman safety. People in India opine that committing a crime a thing of praise and are sure on the lineanacy of Indian system that they would either be free if they are supported by polical parties or to the most extreme they can get a jail term. But if the country has strict death punishment for the culprits then it will create a sense of fear amongst these unsocial person and might reduce the crime rate.

Should capital punishment be abolished? Today the current topic is the abolishment of capital punishment. This is a burning issue. Most people, they go for its dark sides and other go for its value. When victims over come each and every heinous activity. He decide to be killed. Different countries have different laws and regulations. Various capital punishment are there in world like hanging, firing, throwing stones to the head and so on. Certainly it is a inhuman act but it is really the right punishment to the victim. Now India has become the paradise of criminals. Especially, for serve offence like rape, series of murder, robbery, the court goes for the capital punishment. If they are not given any capital punishment, then the society praise to chaos. In country like India the minor girls are raped brutally. Capital punishment is the example for deplorable crimes. They should be hanged. The other in fear of death will stop doing harm others. No jail for years will be sufficient for these culprits. They are like the cancer cells and that should be burnt or cured quickly otherwise it will damage the whole body.

Hi everyone.

I think that the capital punishment should be allowed because there are many criminals who commit the crimes without having fear of punishment. They also think that they have political power so they can do whatever they want that's why crime rate is very high nowadays. So, the government should take proper step to stop this criminal activity and the government can stop this by allowing capital punishment. If capital punishment is banned then criminal repeats their crime which will be very bad for our society.

In my opinion, the death penalty has been given importance in judiciary system after analysing the severity of crime like murder and brutal acts. So there is more public good is involved in it and it shouldn't be banned. Second thing is that If death penalty won't be present then what will happen?

Definitely, it will give an appreciation for doing crime and crimes will increase as there is not any hard punishment.

The Only thing before giving death penalty is that court should judge the gravity of the crime and proper evidence regarding a crime.

ALLOWED. Because capital punishment is the equal punishment for some very evil and cruel crimes like murdering a number of people, rape, sexually assaulting. For example, 2 people broke into Dr. Williams house. Beated Dr. William almost to death, raped his wife, sexually assaulted his 2 daughters which were 11 and 14 and when they all were still alive they set the house on fire, luckily Dr. William was saved but his family died. Do you think still the murderers should be given a light punishment or life inprisonment to have a chance to escape and murder more people. What do you think. What will dr.

Capital punishment should be abolished. The body parts of the living beings are precious and one of the organs where there are two and the convicted can live with one should be got donated and transplanted to the needy patient awaiting for such organs. Suppose lever some portion can be cut and it regrows. One eye, one kidney etc, can be taken out and used for some other needy person. Afterwards all these people can be located in specially made colonies along the borders so that they can serve the nation by being the human border. In case they die they laid their lives for the country and become martyrs. In this way the crime rate can be controlled. Earlier people used to be sent to Andaman as punishment and in the same fashion this can be done. In cases of rape the Cr.PC should be suitably amended to castrate them and then sent to the colony along the border. For their security smart fencing can be arranged which protects them from any danger to their lives.

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.

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?

Rather than banning there should de proper judgement before reaching to any conclusion. It is the best punishment to be given to people's who commit serious threat like rape, terrors, corruption.

I think capital punishment should be abolished. Capital punishment is not the only way to reduce crime rate instead of capital punishments we have to change the thoughts of criminals and make them realise about the mistake. Only way to reduce the crime rate is to change the thoughts of people but not severe punishments.

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. We can use this save money for the developement of India. So why we keep them in Prison And waste our useful 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.

According to me, one that has made the justice system fail in India is the doctrine " RAREST OF THE RARE'. Because of this 99.99% of mass murderers get away scot free and retributive justice has become a non-sequitur.

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.

It should be banned because in India. We all aware of the Indian judicial system, our's is the system in which you are a celebrity then it doesn't matter what is your crime?

So when we can't able to punish the rich, then we should also not discriminate against other sections. And it is also a cruelty to humans, although criminals are also an enemy of humanity but we are civilians so how can we go with jungle laws (as capital punishment) !

Come forward and protest against it.

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.

We can stop rape in India, there is only one-way Indian parliament should give permission for brothels in India. Then I am 1000% sure innocent girls will not become a victim, Even boys will stop looking the girl, Even stop talk with girls. All boys will think there are only 1000 rupees for go to a brothel. Then there is no any boy who will take the risk to do rape of the innocent girl. If the government allow the licenced brothels in India. Then there will no any rape happen with the innocent girls.
