Only Tough Punishments For Guilty Of Air India 182 Kanishka Flight Bombing Can Comfort Victims

On June 23, 2015, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper paid tributes to the victims of Air India (AI) flight 182 bombing that killed all the 329 passengers and crew members on board 25 years ago.
Harper called the deadly terrorist attack occurred on June 23, 1985, the worst terrorist incident in the history of Canada; and assured that his government was committed to prevent any such acts of terrorism from occurring again.

Remembering those who have lost their lives in terror attacks here in Canada and around the globe, he acknowledged that Canada is not immune from the threat of terrorism, but assured that the Government of Canada remained committed to support the victims of terrorism.

Paying tribute to the victims of Air India 182 Kanishka flight bombing, the Canadian prime minister said, "It is our hope that those who have died will not be forgotten and that those who grieve will find comfort.”

I welcome Harper’s assurance that the Canadian government will do everything to prevent such terror attacks from happening again and that it would do the needful to comfort the departed souls and their near & dear ones.

But, let me say that the departed souls and their near & dear ones will get comfort only when the guilty will get the toughest possible punishment for their heinous act of terror. A few people managed to kill hundreds of people more than two decades ago, and the government is still investigating the matter. Let me say again that the victim and their families as well as the common man must be in severe discomfort given the facts that investigation into the attack has thus far been futile, and the guilty continue to exist.
