Delhi-gang rape: Netizens demand public execution of convicts
New Delhi: Netizens gave a thumbs up to the Delhi court judgement sending the four December 16 gangrape convicts to the gallows, but demanded their public execution and that they be brutalised in the same way they had treated the victim.
"Justice Done ! Thank u judiciary ! You keep the faith on Rule of Law alive!" a post on social networking site Facebook said.
On microbogging site Twitter, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha and senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj also welcomed the judgement, saying it will serve as a deterrent for persons committing such crimes.
"I welcome the judgement in Delhi gang-rape case, this will serve as deterrent for such offences," Swaraj tweeted.
A large number of netizens were in favour of immediate hanging of the convicts while some of them opined that hanging was much less then what the gang-rape victim went through.
"The rapists should die 1,000 times more painful death than what they gave her. Then it will be true justice to her," a post said.
Public anger was so intense among netizens that they demanded the four should be hanged in public so that everyone would get a lesson. Many said it was good that the court sentenced them to death.
"But wondering why the court can`t sentence them to be brutalised, tortured and humiliated in the same manner. Why do these rapists need gallows, why can`t they be killed in the same manner using an iron rod and their intestine and other vital organs be pulled out.
"Why should they not be subjected to the same pain and agony and suffering....Why just death for the rapists????" questioned a Facebook user.
