BJP national vice president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today demanded the union government to fix an earliest date to hang Ajmal Kasab, sentenced to death by a Mumbai court in 26/11 terror attacks.

"Unlike Afzal Guru, who is waiting execution for attack on Parliament, the union government shall not delay hanging of Kasab and fix an earliest date to send him to gallows", Naqvi told reporters here.

The BJP leader questioned the US sincerity in fighting global terrorism by providing liberal funds to Pakistan which has been producing terrorists like Kasab and Faisal Shahzad, prime accused in the Times square bomb scare.

"The U.S. has neither checked so far nor intends checking in future money bags, containing huge amount of dollars handed over to Pakistan to deal and demolish terrorists organizations which have been producing Ajmal Kasab and Faisal Shahzad," he added.
