Should Kasab be given legal assistance in India? Should a terrorist be given legal assistance?
I think he should be given fair trial. Any individual irrespective of what he committed deserves a fair treatment in our democratic country. Our country is democratic in principle and should be democratic in its act as well. It should not be one way dictatorship. Each and every individual has a right to defend himself. Of what use are our courts if we cannot provide legal assistance to an individual. If he is not assigned a defence, the process will only get delayed. Shiv sena thinks it is acting in the best interest of our country.
Bal Thackeray ji, shiv sena is not India. You're entitled to your own opinion on any matter but you cannot impose your view on the country! This is not the right time for jingoistic responses but for a sensible decision. Not all think Kasab shouldn't get a defence. It is on our part to take care that a foreigner gets a fair trail irrespective from which country he hails from and irrespective of the acts he has committed. Or else what is the purpose of our COURTS?
