Owaisi Has the Right to Question Why Balwant Sing Rajoana & Rajiv Gandhi’s Killers Are Still Alive


AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi is known for making controversial comments, particularly when it comes to religious matters. On Thursday, Owaisi triggered a hot controversy over death sentense/capital punishment awarded to Yakub Memon by the Supreme Court of India for his role in 1993 Mumbai blasts case.

Addressing a gathering in Hyderabad, Asaduddin Owaisi questioned why mercy was shown in cases of the killers of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh.
He alleged that the killers of Rajiv Gandhi and Beant Singh have support of respective political parties in Tamil Nadu and Punjab, respectively.

Making the allegation, Owaisi said, "Rajiv Gandhi and Beant Singh killers have backing of respective political parties that is why they have not been given capital punishment."

Many high profile political leaders and journalists criticized Owaisi for his alleged attempt to give the issue a political hue, but I want to emphasize here that like any other Indian, Owaisi also has the right to raise question wherever he witness hypocrisy.

Federal as well as concerned state governments must answer why the killers of Rajiv Gandhi and Beant Singh are still alive, several years after they committed the heinous crimes.

Like most of Indian, I want Yakub Memon to be hanged so that he could get ‘reward’ for what he did in 1993 in Mumbai. But at the same time I also want to see Balwant Sing Rajoana, who was convicted for killing Beant Singh, as well as Rajiv Gandhi’s killers to be hanged.

Yakub Memon’s supporters are citing the examples of mercy being shown to Balwant Sing Rajoana and Rajiv Gandhi’s killers in a desperate attempt to save the convicted criminal; and if he is let to survive, lawyers of future criminals will cite his example to save their clients.

Let me say the ongoing hypocrisy is definitely very helpful and protective for criminals; with the only loser in the whole political game continues to be the same common man
