A leading senior lawyer of the country, Indira Jaising suggested that she forgive her daughter’s rapists like Sonia Gandhi forgave Nalini, one of the conspirators of Rajiv Gandhi assassination. She added that she’s against Death Sentences.
Her mother, Asha Devi, said “Till now, I never talked about politics, but now I want to say that those people who held protests on streets in 2012, today the same people are only playing with my daughter’s death for political gains”
Speaking to Asian News International (ANI), She added, “Who’s Indira Jaising to give me such a suggestion? The whole country wants the convicts to be executed. Just because of people like her, justice is not done with rape victims,” .
“Cannot believe how Indira Jaising even dared to suggest this. I met her many times over the years in Supreme Court, not even once has she asked for my well being and today she is speaking for the convicts. Such people earn their livelihoods by supporting rapists, hence rape incidents do not stop”.
Capital sentences are an extremity but so is their crime, so don’t they deserve to be hanged?
