The Hangman’s noose is now drawing closer and closer and the “eminent” terrorist has already lost his nerve. Now he is supposedly seeking mercy from the same state he waged war against. Oh boy! these jihadis are so brave(sic!).
Facing gallows for his role in the 2001 Parliament terror attack, Mohammed Afzal Guru has petitioned President A P J Abdul Kalam for mercy, saying he did not get ‘fair trial’ in courts. In an emotional plea, Afzal refuted police charges and claimed innocence in his 102-page long mercy petition submitted late Wednesday night to the authorities of Tihar jail, where he is lodged currently.
Is this how one files a “Mercy Petition”? I thought the very name “Mercy Petition” implies that he admits his crime, repents for it and is seeking forgiveness. But this sounds more like the same bullcrap served up again and again that he is innocent.
Excuse me, dude you are supposed to be begging for mercy here not filing a review petition. Maybe the lawyers can help u figure out that the President is not a court. If he thinks that you did not get a fair trial he will send your file back to the courts which as you must have realised by now, they don’t like ya!.
So Afzal dude be smart and get down on your knees now and beg for mercy.Now!!
Oh! and our “misguided boy” who did not have GPS receiver set and hence “innocently” strayed into a PoK terrorist camp from his hostel during his first year in college did not forget to appreciate the efforts of our nutroots who wanted to get him out of the hangman’s noose.
Afzal said he was moved by the ‘solidarity’ he has received from people, cutting across ideological divides (I do not remember seeing any of those hated Hindutva rightwingers cheer for Afzal. Maybe i’am not all seeing unlike our “exalted” Media), apart from the support he got from Jammu and Kashmir(or more specifically the “kashmir valley”. Interesting how conveniently does the J&K and “kashmir valley” interchange names based on the utility for the media’s agenda of the moment).
‘This support has truly given me new hope that I may still live and able to see my son grow up’, he said in his plea.
