New Delhi: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) led a rally here Sunday demanding parliament attack convict Afzal Guru`s hanging.

"He attacked not our Parliament but our conscience and self-respect. He should have been hanged the day he was caught," said Surendra Jain, VHP`s national spokesperson.

The rally was held in Tilak Nagar area of the capital. Protesters carried placards and banners demanding Afzal Guru`s hanging.

Mahavir Rana, 28, a protester from Janakpuri, said: "Is the government blind and deaf? Can`t it see the pain of those who lost their loved ones on that fateful day. How can they (government) be so insensitive?"

The rally culminated with the burning of Afzal Guru`s effigy in Tilak Nagar`s main market.

Afzal Guru was sentenced to death for his role in the Dec 13, 2001, attack on parliament. He has filed a mercy petition with the president.
