I am happy to share some good news on the fate of Sarabjit Singh. First, his execution has been put off indefinitely! Second,his plea for clemency is under review! All this comes after the visit of Sarabjit’s family to Pakistan. Sarabjit’s sister, Dalbir Kaur, has expressed her gratitude to the Pakistan government and to the Pakistani Human Rights activist, Ansar Burney.
Ansar Burney, who has been involved in, and has won, several battles for Human Rights . . .
(Ansar Burney is seen with a picture of a child camel jockey. Mr. Burney has rescued several children from this obnoxious practice.)
I have been opposing the death penalty from the time I started this blog. I have said this before, and I will say it again. Sarabjit must not be executed! The Pakistani authorities need not pardon him if they have enough evidence against him. But he should not be put to death under any circumstances! However, I would be extremely delighted if Sarabjit is freed as a part of a prisoner exchange program between India and Pakistan.
Also, Ansar Burney has shown that the concept of Human Rights knows no boundaries. I salute you, Mr. Burney! You are a true man! May your tribe increase!
