Imran Demands Sarabjit’s Execution
Imran Khan’s political party in Pakistan ,Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in a tit for tat action has demanded the hanging of Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh in retaliation. Earlier Sarabjit Singh has been convicted and sentenced to death on terrorism charges in Pakistan and India has been trying hard to get him released and deported back to the country. Imran’s party organised a huge demonstration in Multan,where PTI leader Naeemullah Khan said, “India waited for less than a month after the final verdict by their judiciary and we are protecting the terrorists for the last eight years.”
After Kasab was hanged yesterday, former Supreme Court judge and Press Council of India chairman Markandey Katju wrote a letter to the prime minister and president of Pakistan appealing yet again for clemency for Sarabjit.Katju had argued Sarabjit’s case vis-a-vis Kasab’s and stressed how both the cases are different and why Sarabjit deserves a pardon.
