It is distressing to see the President, who himself was a layer, speaking like this. Mercy petition is a constitutionally recognized remedy, and is considered mostly on basis of post conviction behaviour and state. It is an aspect of reformative intent of punishment.

December 6 is a day where most agree to give Constitution a holiday!!

Sometimes in spite of all the debates and logics, we shall understand the mood and sentiments of the people of the nation and stand with them. Afterall, democracy is all about 'The People'.

See the next level of blood lust. This idiot now wants encounter of human rights activists.

RT @porinju@twitter.com

Encounter is a good idea, to overcome the antiquated judicial system - human rights activists questioning the action also should be encountered, I feel.

The only reason everyone is celebrating this 'encounter' is because the men were disempowered, poor and (probably) lower caste men. Easy targets to externalise all our anger about rape onto. What about the rich & powerful rapists? The ones in our communities, the ones we idolise?

I’m a rape victim/survivor and I do not agree with death penalty and lynching for rapists. I condemn these calls for such *punishments* in the name of gender justice. Not in my name.

Police that illegally shoot rapists are the same police that harass women at police stations and refuse to take down rape complaints. Police have never worked in women's interests.

This is exactly why the Telangana victim called her sister instead of 100.

Women are supposed to feel safe in a society that executes people without trial? What a logic!

Just think about a role reversal scenario : If the criminals were educated professionals and the victim was a manual labourer, would the police encounter have happened?

If you support extra judicial killings - for whatever contrived reasons, absurdity - u don't deserve to be an Advocate. Go back to law school.

Also, you don't belong to a civil society.

Reset your moral compass 🙏

In Ryan International murder case, Bus Conductor was arrested. Public wanted instant justice. Lawyers refused to take his case. Later turned out he was innocent. Cops had tortured him to confess. Thankfully he wasnt shot in encounter before and case closed with people cheering

Killing rapists in an encounter will not absolve the Police of their responsibility. They refused to write FIR, tried to slutshame her to her family while she was being raped and killed.

That's what the police knows, to use violence only instead of doing their job.

We can't claim to be a civilised society if we have come to the level of celebrating dubious police encounters as "justice".
Wind up all the courts then, and let police deliver "similar justice" in all cases.

Why do we have a judicial system?

Govt is bringing Citizenship Amendment Bill only to enable an NRC. An NRC which will convert Hindu migrants enjoying citizenship rights right now into illegal immigrants & then to refugees if they are able to prove they came from Pak. Don't fall for the trap.
