Nothing could be more barbaric than the child killings in Noida. The killers must be hanged after a speedy trial. The self-styled human rights groups who cry themselves hoarse every time there is capital punishment should keep quiet this time. This fits the parameters of the ‘rarest of the rare’ case. The two accused deserve nothing less than the most severe sentence.
The massacres are a reflection of the law and order situation in UP. The perpetrators of the crime deserve maximum punishment. Will we ever live in an India where newspapers don’t carry such gruesome tales?
The perverted persons behind the cruelty must be dealt with as ruthlessly as they were in their attacks. The culprits must be sentenced to die to give a sense of consolation to the bereaved families. The police must be held accountable too.
End of Saddam saga
The execution of Saddam Hussein was disgraceful. He may have committed serious crimes against humanity, but tyrants like Idi Amin and several other dictators of the world have been ousted from power in their own country. Saddam Hussein was confined to his prison cell and was incapable of being a threat to Iraq, the US and its allies.
Saddam Hussein deserved death penalty for his role in the Kurdish massacre and many more. But there are many leaders who deserve such an end for masterminding massacres and riots in their hatred of a particular community.
