Why are we wasting our energies in worthless arguments? Can’t we talk about corruption in India? It takes more lives every year.
She got a better deal than she deserves period. Leave her there to serve rest of the sentence. Everybody who is in jail, on death row or life imprisonment has family, kids, parents. They all deserve mercy but would that serve the society? No. Society needs a strong deterrent in place so more innocent lives are not wasted.

ITs all about perception management at the end of the day isnt it? especially now, since we are very much a part of the war on terror.

She has been punished for 18 years now. It is more than enough.
Valmiki was a dacoit and went on to write the Ramayana.
Nalini has also completed MCA – she can do wonders if given a chance.
To err is human to forgive divine.

Her and her collegues, ill-actions have changed the course of Indian history. Rajiv as PM was charting a progressive path for India back in 80’s, things today may be different (better or worse we can discuss later) if these group of people had not decieded to kill him to make a point. a Point which we still can’t understand.
She was rightly given death penalty. Its only by grace of the president that she lives. Every day of her life is a gift by Indians, whom she has wronged. She doesnt not deserve this. So she should remain in prison for her actions.

One must not forget that Nalini assassinated India’s former prime minister. Had this happened in any other country even the debate on Nalini would not have started. Releasing Nalini would set a precedent for other terrorists like Kasab and weaken India’s stand on terrorism. Let her spent her life behind the bars for the horrendous act she committed.

The reason being there must be some pressure or unfamiliar circumstances under which she must have committed such a deadly crime but after spending 18 years in prison, its quite a long time served, afterall she is a mother of a young lady, she has complete right to demand freedom after such a long prison stay. Sometimes people do commit severe mistakes but forgiveness is the virtue of the wise. Forgive her, let her free.

Her people — Lankan Tamils — have been through harrowing time. If it is possible for us to understand what made her do what she did. If may be possible to forgive her.

Nalini was proved by Police in a court of law to have played a key role in Killing Rajiv Gandhi. She had no mercy on Rajiv. Why should India show mercy to her? Infact she should have been hanged. The commutation of her death sentense is not actually constitutionally valid, you will know about it, if you carefully study how the death sentence was commuted.
