Afzal Guru Hanged. Finally its over for afzal guru. The man who was master mind of parliament attack in 2001 , was hanged today inside tihar jail at 8 am.
Parliament terror attack happened in 2001 was attack on very temple of Indian democracry and Nine security personnel, including five policemen, were killed when suspected Pakistan-backed terrorists had attacked Parliament.
Afzal Guru was found guilty for attack on parliament attack ten years back and afzal guru had filed mercy petition in 2006 and it took seven long years to bring him to justice.
The chief minister of jammu and kashmir ,omar abdullah was kept in the loop and curfew has been declared as precautionary measures in few towns of kashmir.
Afzal guru’s family was not informed of hanging of afzal but once he got hanged his family was informed about it. As per law it is not compulsory for government to inform the family of culprit before he/she is hanged.
Politically afzal’s hanging would come as big relieve to congress who has always been seen as being soft on terror. Afzal guru was not being hanged since so many years because of fear of congress about reactions in valley .
Also recently Indian Home minister’s saffron terror statement has pushed congress of back foot and it is expected that BJP would attack shinde in budget session .
Congress wants to do away with its image of being soft on terror and take attack to the opposition on what it calls is “saffron terror”.
It would be to be seen how political games are played in coming times on afzal guru but today let us congratulate government of India , NDA (for continued pressure on government) and Omar abdullah (for managing law and order in kashmir) on this hanging of afzal guru. Special thanks to president of India Mr pranab mukherjee for rejecting the mercy petition of afzal guru.
Today we as nation got justice and finally the soul of brave men and women who died protecting parliament would rest in peace.
