Describing her husband’s hanging as “India’s collective shame”, the wife of Muhammad Afzal Guroo Tuesday said that the verdict of Supreme Court regarding Rajiv Gandhi killers made it clear that India is treating Kashmirs as cattle and it will be “better for us that we accept this reality sooner or later.”
Tabasum Guroo, the wife of Parliament attack convict, Muhammad Afzal Guroo while reacting to the Supreme Court’s verdict on the assassins of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, said that her husband was a victim of “collective conscience” of Indian society. She said that hanging of Afzal Guru was a blot on justice.
“Today I want to ask the Supreme Court why it strangulated justice and hurriedly pronounced its biased verdict. It has become clear that Indian is governed by two different laws and this country is using its self-made and biased laws to punish Kashmiri people for the crime which they never commit,” she said.
Tabasum said that Government of India hurriedly put Guroo to gallows without following procedure of law. The serial number of Afzal was 21 but he was hanged soon after Ajmal Qasab while others were not touched.
“Supreme Court, Government of India and its people were satisfied after hanging my husband who was innocent. It is irony that soon after the execution of my husband in Tihar Jail, the India’s highest court commuted the death sentences of many convicts into life term while it also said that there should be no repeat of Afzal Guroo like execution. Is not it irony and murder of justice that after the execution of Muhammd Afzal Gruoo, the India’s Supreme Court termed solitary confinement unconstitutional and passed a verdict before the death of any convict his family members must be informed,” Tabasum said adding that India stands exposed at International level and its faulty justice system has brought disrepute to it.
