"We were told that our big brother India is so rich and we are dying of poverty and hunger. My father sells food on a stall in Lahore and we did not even get enough food to eat from his earnings. I was promised that once they knew that I was successful in my operation, they would give Rs 1,50,000 [almost USD 4,000] to my family. Please do not tell anyone that I am caught alive otherwise they will kill me. They had told us that they would shoot us even if we returned to Pakistan. If you give me regular meals and money I will do the same that I did for them. Jihad is about Killing and Getting Killed and Becoming Famous. Come, kill and die after a killing spree. By this one will become famous and will also MAKE GOD PROUD
- Confessional statement of Ajmal Kasab, the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack convict who had been sentenced to death and has now been hanged at 7:30 am today.
Yes the devil is hanged. Did he deserve it? - yes of course for the deeds he committed - are not pardon able by any stretch of imagination or human sympathy. And as the supreme court mentioned that. death sentence is awarded in the rarest of rare cases, and if this is not that case then which one". It also made no sense spending lakhs to house a prisoner, isolated with extra security in an event where our police force is extra stretched in bandobasts and seasonal local dramas by fanatics.
Having said that, I would also like to add that there are several kasabs breeding in our midst. And we are feeding these kasabs with our malicious thoughts. It is easy to get starving impressionable indoctrinated minds. Kasab is an example of the ill effects of indoctrination and how it could kill the innocence of a child forever. Every moment, we kill several young minds throbbing with enthusiasm with our thoughts and practices. We poison their minds using twisted base less unproven philosophies of religion which, if we look at it from a different angle, is nothing but "batman-superman-spiderman-tarzan-the lion king" stories of the pre historic era.
As my friend Hardik S says "honestly, religion was supposed to a unifier. Now all it does is divide humans." Nothing wrong in following a good regime as set by religion. All of the religious practices that stems out of the intent of putting good science in practice is indeed good. The problem is when religion rules over science. All the religious drama is a good "moral of the story" kind of children's book. No wrong in following fables of myth and taking the good values out of it. But when we take a twisted logic of mythology, kasabs are born, humankind is doomed. The big question is "How many kasabs would it take for humankind to realize this?"
