Hi, This is Gurappa.

Today's topic : Capital punishment should be avoided.

In my point of view, we should give preference to life imprisonment instead of capital punishment.

We should give a chance to all criminals to change their behaviour and mind thinking. If capital punishment gives to criminals. Then there will be no chance to change their behaviour and human no right to kill anyone.

As we all know, no one is born a criminal. They become criminals due to some circumstances.

So at last, I would like to say that capital punishment should be avoided.

Hello everyone.

My name is Prince Kumar.

Today I would like to talk about the capital punishment should be banned or not. Capital punishment is known as the death penalty in which our judiciary system legally kills a human who commits a serious or heinous crime, murder, rape, and terrorism.

Capital punishment or death penalty is being imposed by state as a punishment for the criminals of heinous offences.

Use of death penalty was dropped in 140 countries. 7 countries retained it for the crimes committed in exceptional circumstances. 21 countries including India, are still using death penalty as a punishment.

The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution 'UN moratorium on the death penalty' in 2007. India voted against it. There are a lot of ethical dilemmas involved in capital punishment. In most of the cases, death penalty can be avoided. Life imprisonment is the best alternative for the capital punishment. By imposing life imprisonment, we can reform the person. Even if he is not reformed, life imprisonment can act as a severe punishment and also as a deterrent. However the criminals, who do heinous crimes and are incapable of being reformed must be given death penalty, because they don't deserve to live, not even in prison.

Hello everyone my name is Balram.

Today, I would like to talk about the topic capital punishment should be banned or not. Capital punishment is known as the death penalty in which our judiciary system legally kill a human who commits a serious or heinous crime like murder, rape, terrorism. So, According to my opinion capital punishment should not be banned because the crime rates are increasing day by day in our society, and it creates a fear in the mind of criminals. Due to capital punishment countries like China, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia has a lower rate of crime. If we abolish capital punishment then it's increasing crime rates in our country and. People feel unsafe and insecure. Because every year many innocent people were killed by criminals so they have not right to kill someone without any reason because life is precious and no one can snatch it. Thanks.

What is capital we know all that capital punishment knows as the death penalty. Capital punishment is a punishment in which a person has committed a serious crime such as murder/rape.

1. Capital punishment should not be banned. Because it will increase the crime rate in India. If capital punishment is abolished then crime rates will be increased.

2. We all know that two-thirds of countries of the world have abolished this punishment. But it is present in some countries like South Korea, Taiwan, China. By this punishment here the rate of crime is very low.

3. Punishment is a fear of criminals. We know that there are punishments and fines for every crime. But capital punishment consoles the victim and victim's family.

Introducing capital punishment is not revenge, it is the highest degree of social protection.

Good evening everyone.

I, Mirnali Krishnamoorthy would like to speak against the topic "Capital punishment should be banned".

Let us start with the meaning of Capital punishment.

It is a punishment that involves the legal killing of a person who commits a serious crime like rape, murder, terrorism.

Let me ask you a question If a person has committed a heinous and unforgivable crime to disturb the peace in our society, shouldn't he be punished? The answer is not yes, it is absolutely.

People say that punishment is alright, though a death sentence is too much. But I disagree. Rapists and terrorists are not afraid of prison as a thief would be.

1. According to my opinion, capital punishment should not be banned because it will increase the crime rates at an alarming rate.

We already witness a lot of crime in our society. Now, imagine if rapists and Terrorists weren't punished in a disciplined manner! Our community would collapse right in front of our eyes! People would start to feel unsafe and insecure.

2. Another point is why should we go easy on a person who has attempted murder?

Shouldn't he/she be given a taste of their medicine? They deserve to be taught a lesson.

Let us consider countries like China and South Korea that have implemented Capital punishment to decrease crime rates to a minimal level.

Capital punishment won't only prevent crimes from happening now, but also in the future as the people will think multiple times before doing something that will cost them their life.

I would like to end by giving a quote: "I think capital punishment works great! Every killer you kill never kills again".

Thank you.

Reformed, life imprisonment can act as a severe punishment and also as a deterrent.

In point of my view, the capital punishment should not be banned because it's punishment whose people give who did rape, murder etc and we all know these crimes conclude a valid reason so we can't be ignored it. We also know that many cases in India are going on so it should not be banned.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

My name is Rasika Tiwari.

Today is our topic capital punishment should be banned or not?

According to me, capital punishment should be not banned, because the rate of crime would be increased day by day 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.
