External affairs minister Salman Khurshid on Wednesday said the hanging of Ajmal Amir Kasab was in accordance with Indian laws and he had been given "all necessary opportunities" without discrimination.
"Everything has been done according to the law of land. All actions have been taken as per the law of the country," Khurshid said.
The minister said it sent the message that India did not discriminate against anyone.
"It is a clear indication for the whole world that that rule of law is there in this country. We see all as equal and have no animosity against any one. We gave him all necessary opportunities as per rule of law," he said.
Asked if Kasab's family in Pakistan had asked for his body, Khurshid said no such request had been sent yet.
"If there is any request from Pakistan we will consider it as per the rules, but no such request has come from Pakistan yet," he said.
