Dr. Abdul Kalam and Death Penalty


I had written few years back Death Penalty: A Free Pass to kill Dalits and Minorities? but the death of Ex President Dr. Abdul Kalam has reminded me his views on death penalty.

He had said, ‘Why does the capital punishment confine only to the weaker sections (Dalits and Muslims) of the Indian society?’ – Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam

In case you are supporting the death penalty of Yakub Memon, stop shedding crocodile tears over the death of Dr. Abdul Kalam because you are not following what he had said about death penalty. He was in favor of abolition of death penalty.

The best tribute to Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam would be abolishing the death penalty.

Those who are saying, he was a great man, great scientist or what not, must know that he also had said that “almost all capital punishment cases which were pending had a social and economic bias: in other words, the death penalty is mostly reserved for the poor.”
