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.”

Indians, who have changed their profile picture at facebook or other social networks to celebrate legalization of gay marriages in US still prefer same caste marriage! Ironic but true. They publish caste wise demands in the newspapers!
We wholeheartedly welcome the decision on legalization of gay marriages in US.
[Tweet “Now, after ‘legalization of gay marriages in US’, will Indians demand for removal of caste? No.”]
Indians are most hypocritical.
If any couple tries to marry inter-caste they are killed, termed as honor killing. Khap Panchayats have always worked as anti-Dalit, anti-women, and anti-modernization. It is estimated that every year hundreds of married couples are murdered, are asked to leave the village, are asked to break their marriages and accept each other as brother-sister, are paraded naked, and their faces blackened by their families in order to regain/retain family honour, on the ill-fated instructions of Khap Panchayat. And mostly those suffering in these crimes are Dalits. The decisions about killing, burning homes, raping Dalit women etc are taken by these Khap Panchayats collectively at the open places without any fear.
[Tweet “Caste matters everywhere in India, we need to destroy everything that upholds this disease. “]
It’s not always the family of the boy or girl (as promoted by these Khap Panchayat) who kills or orders to kill but the Khap Panchayat members play an active role in executing rapes and murders. If they (boy/girl) escape, their family members are murdered/killed, gang-raped or fined heavily.
[Tweet “Khap Panchayats whole-sole motive/purpose is to work and maintain clan/caste system alive”]
