“The Karkare family may have a different opinion. But that is not the opinion of family members of the other policemen killed in the terror attacks,” Thackeray said in an editorial comment in Sena mouthpiece 'Saamana'.
“The daughter of Tukaram Ombale, who fell to Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman's bullets but ensured that the terrorist was captured alive, has said that the souls of the 16 policemen killed in the terror attacks will get peace only if he is hanged,” Thackeray said.
Referring to the slew of media interviews of Kavita Karkare, the slain ATS chief's wife, Thackeray said she has quoted her daughter who is studying in London and who feels that Ajmal should be given another chance to live and realise what a grave crime he has committed.
“Karkare's daughter should meet Ombale's daughter. We also respect Karkare's martyrdom and we are expressing our opinion while respecting Karkare's sacrifice,” Thackeray said.
Do you really think that the media did a good job of reporting the demise of Balasaheb. Where are the journalists who uncover the truth and make them public?
I agree with Mrs Karkare that Kasab should be allowed to scot free on humanitarian grounds. He was just a misguided youth. After all we are secular country, how can we hang a minority person? Hindus of India are real terrorists, they are in mojority and that is why they are imposing their thinking on Minorities. This is the very principal Mr. Karkare was following when he was killed by a misguided bullets from the Gun of Kasab. Kasab should be pardoned so that other Jehadi's planning the next attack on India can do their job peacefully and without fear. They should be given a feeling that India is a great nation and do not hang you even if you are caught red handed, provided you are Muslim.
We heard many saying....where was Thakre when Mumbai was arrested..... Hey what you think... what would you say if he goes to the crime scene? You will say he is "politicising" terrorism.... Remember Modi? he visited Taj and waht media cried? Karkare was killed like a common man, there is no case of "martydom"... he was not killed fighting terror. He was more interested in hanging Sadhvi Pragya. His family want Kasab to be pardoned, may be because they want to have media attention..... want to get mileage and congress seat. All of a sudden they are in limelight, not because they "did" something but because "Kasab" did something....
Death Penalty is an act of retribution. A life for life is just and serves the purpose of justice. The punishment should be equal to the crime and punishment has no other purpose. There is no utilitarian value and we should not aim at some other goal other than that of meeting the requirement of just punishment.The criminal should be executed by a firing squad.
I agree with Mrs Karkare that Kasab should be given a chance to understand what "India is" so that he realises that his wish for jannat is fulfilled in his living life here in India he need not die or kill people.Objective of conviction in any modern legal system is to make the convict understand or realize his mistakes and death as such will not carry that idea of realisation of wrong he has committed, he will feel he is going to his jannat if he is hanged, and not to forget that anybody on a suicide mission (present or future) death is a least deterrent punishment. We need to understand that these are all young men just like us but brainwashed to commit these acts of terror, and the best way to fight them is not to provide them with nourishment to grow.
Kasav is the only proof alive to prove Pakistans dirty mindset and I believe that govt. should keep him behind bars and treated as terrorist. And why Mr. Thakre is making so much hue and cry over the opinions of Late Mr. Karkare's family. Its only an opinion and reaction of an individual who have never faced media scrutiny and are unaware that each and every comment they make will be disected to the core by people like Thakres(vultures) who feed on dead, our sympathy with Mr. Karkare's family. Please leave them alone. Their opinion is just an opinion and not a decesion.
Just like Prianka Gandhi wanted to pardon killers of Rajiv and 60 other people around him, Karkare's daughter want to pardon killers of 200 victims. Of course ATF chief Karkare was murdered like the rest 190 people, and these killers were stopped by brave NSG commondos (not Karkares stupid ATF cops ). It is unfair to compare Karkare or other cops of Maharastra with likes Capt. Unnikrishhnan or Delhi capt. Sharma who really died fighting the Jihadi enemies. May be Karkare's family is planning to contest elections on congress ticket, am sure Dawood Ibrahim and ISI will surely back this secular UPA candidate in future! Also ISI agents in India who prounance Sadhvi Pragya and others as guility, note that nothing has been proved yet. Karkare's bravery was only talking to media about his heroic deeds of nacro tests on young hindu sadhvi, and he miserably failed when faced with real enemy, ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.
Karkare's wife and daughter are mearly trying to emulate Sonia.One will not be surprised if sonia field her in the next election to Maharashrtra assembly on congress ticket
The death sentence to any criminal is not awarded to teach him a lesson but to teach many others who may indulge in crimes. If we start pardoning everybody then who will deter from innocent killings. The so called saints should then sugget that everybody should be allowed to kill any body and seek pardon on humantarian grounds. Only then will we proudly be able to say that we belong to 'KALYUG'. I may further add, that why only kavitha karkare is speaking on the behalf of other policemen and innocent people, because the nation does not know the names of junior police official who were killed with karkare and other senior officers. Is there sacrifice lesser being the lesser human beings.
No business of letting off such a hardcore terrorist since until now he is not the feeling of any wrongdoing and hopes that he has a berth in jannat. Such persons should be killed in front of the public as how the Indonesian Government dealt with the three hardcore terrorist caught on bali bomings. This will be a lesson to others not to dare to do such things in future
Even at the alter of death, a Hindu never ceases to be a Dhimmi.That is the gist of Kavitha Karare's statement.We talk so much about the absence of killer instinct in Indians even in the field of sports.No wonder the offsprings of such mothers as Kavitha cannot be expected to rise above pedestrial levels.In a way Kavitha too is right.Nobody can bring back her husband to life.Atleast salvage some prestige for herself and achieve sainthood at the cost of the nation.
The family members of the slain police Officer Karkare have no business to offer pardon to the terrorist Ajmal.More than their family, India and Indians were affected.In my view the terrorist Ajmal should be given with the death sentence after he is identified by the world that he is Paksitani.
I strongly belive that this high time when Syt BALSAHEB should retire from entire public and political life. His statement is like "Sathiya gaya", When their was practically fight between Police / Army with Terrorists, where were Blasaheb's Sena gone. they could not come forward to sacrifice life. instead Balsaheb iscoment unwanted words for thoes who scrifice his life already. Further as far as set free for the terrorist who spolt life of others should not be let off on “humanitarian grounds”. Govt Should put them Behind the BAR for 21 years.
I wuld definitely support Bal Thackeray on this one although I am not a big fan of his. Kasab should be put to death and has no right to live. He has robbed over 60 families of their joys foreever. The days of being a Gandhi are over. These terrorists do not understand the language of compassion and forgivenness. They should be paid in their own coin, a tit for tat. This will be the only deterrent from further attacks. Else innocents will continue to die.
Will Bal Thackeray shut up please? He has suffered no loss, never made a sacrifice in his life, is scared to even stir out of Mumbai and all he has to his credit is an empire of loot, a history of having bankrupted the richest municipal corporation in India in one term of rule, the blood of countless innocents on his hands. Senile dementia is all right, but when the patient starts flinging excreta around, it is time for restraints.
Kavita Karkare should avoid being in media limelight. Does this speaks her of a political embition? Is she joining CPM? I was surprised to know this family has leaning towards communists as Mr Karkkare was the son of a leftist trade union AITUC Aleader.
You say Communist as if it was a bad word. It is a fact that the Communist Party has been just like any other party in India, corrupted by power. But, remember, most of the privileges the middle class has now, even the better conditions of the labourers are because of the Communists' hard work. There is a rule that once you have benefitted from a change, you become a staunch conservative. I am not a Communist myself, but credit has to be given where it is needed to be given. Your great national icon Bhagat Singh was a Communist, remember? Remember that the Communists were the only political party to launch an armed insurrection in India before Independence? No, you people have all forgotten your concern for your fellow men and grown up on the get-rich quick mantra that has given you Enron and the recessions and Maddox and now Satyam. Enjoy yourself!
As you say,if the commies have achieved their objective and have become irrelevant now, why cant they disband themselves and save democracy.It will be in the interest of the nation.
Bring Kasab to Thakere and he will solve the problem.
Every Individual has its own opinion, better we respect views of individual , even we may differ from it .
so..per bal's own logic, he needs to be bent down and reared up, then spiced up and finally hanged for the murders of innocents in mbai. God knows how many lives have gone due this monkey's greed. Kasab was here to die. No point doing what he already wanted.He should be asked to sell his family property and fund the victims.also do community service in old age homes.. Washing the excrements etc .Who is bal thackery to try for public support by playing with emotions during times like this prompting ppl intorash actions with disatrous consequences
Isn't her daughter in London. She must know more about terror. Her idea is good but sadly it does not work. Kasab did not kill by accident and after getting caught he told he has no regret. Let him be tried under law, for upholding the same her husband gave his life. All guys here, even if you do not agree with Karkare's wife do not go personal on her. She has all the right and more than all of us will ever have to put forward her views.As far as Thackeray goes, he has lived enough and lived out his utility, so get away and keep off.Hemant.
i cant beleive it.Reading the views on the web it goes to show that the Indian society is so polarised to the exasperating extent that a martyr and his family are bieng maligned for expressing their views.LET me tell you that i do not subscribe to the views expressed by Mr karkares daughter on kasab,he deserves to be hanged without trial.but thakreys has no business to seek it.What ws he doing when Sarpotdar was accused in crimes during mumbai Riots.Just keep OFF.I did see a interview were Mrs kavita karkare did say that her husband had valid proof working on Malegaon Blasts.Lets allow a probe o be free and fair.How is that one cannot accept a HINDU bieng accused of terrorism and indulge in getting personal with karkares family.Law is same for all.DOES that mean any investigation against the majority is anti National.Then we have failed as democracy.Some of the attacks made on his family so the sick mindset.All those nationalist must send their kids to the army.
If some people are interested to get in limelight then probably govt. of India should stop wasting tax payers money to maintain defense/police forces. Why the hell should some young people put their life in danger to catch terrorist/criminals. Agree Karkare was ATS chief and feel very sorry for this death but NSG/army/police personals action saved India's face. If I am right I doubt the tax payers are invested in defense for fun. To contain the situation form turning ugly x/y person should shut up and let govt. to focus on Pakistan. Let the law take the right action and force Pakistan to pay (may be US $ 30/40 billion) for all the expenses/loss incurred during this and all previous attack.
Who is Bal-T to comment? A coward who has never sacificed anything for his city, let alone the state or the country. When you lose a dear one to a murder, different people react differently. There is nothing new in this. For instance, Jessica Lal's sister wanted life imprisonment for her killer, but Priyadarshini Mattoo's family wanted the death penalty for her killer. So let the families of the deceased of 26/11 talk to each other on the subject without cowards getting in the way.
We are so good in letting off! Prithvi Raj Chauhan left the invading attacker many a time before finally falling himself. Indira Gandhi left the entire captured territory, even though the armed forces had won it. Now, we wnat to be great by letting off the sole captured terrorist so that he can kill 200-300 people again. Well, he has attained some experience now. Mind you, whosoever advocates the release of terrorists, is directly guilty of all the crimes that the let off will commit in future. We should have some sense and learn from history.
Sir, after having lost a father or someone else from the near family, every person reacts differently, therefore, the comments made by our hero Hemant Karkare's daughter should not be exploited by Bal Thackarey. Hemant Karkare's daughter did not give any stupid statement, because she might have meant, that Kasab should be given the chance to live, so that he could see for himself the damage and pain he and his terrorist mates have given to the families by heniously butchering their love ones.Killing him will be the easiest part.
