Innocent or Guilty… who knows what the truth is?

February 13, 2013 at 1:15 pm 2 comments

Afzal Guru’s hanging has been in the news for the last few days now. The tv channels in their usual way reported the breaking the news as ‘JaisheMohammad terrorist hanged death’, supported by emotional bytes from the families of police officers who died during the Parliament attack. Within a day this changed to an emotional conversation about his family not receiving the Govt. intimation in time. While the slip gave BJP a chance to accuse the Central Government, let’s analyze media’s take on the subject, is there even an ounce of logic in the media reports?

Afzal’s mercy pleas has been a topic of debate time and again then why pretend now to be sad for his family? Does the family even care?  The Police framed an innocent Muslim Prof. from Delhi University in this case who was later acquitted by the Supreme Court and if you read Afzal’s interview published in Caravan magazine, a realization hits that maybe he was just a scapegoat?

My argument is, chances of him being innocent are as much as of him being guilty but with his death the case is closed. Another interesting case in the same light is the Arushi murder case; if you have read the book ‘India’ by Patrick French, it has an entire chapter supporting the Talwar’s while there is evidence against them but perhaps not enough.

    There is always a second side to every story which we carelessly choose to ignore! I loved your perspective on this other side of the story.
