President Kovind should accept the mercy petition and commute the punishment to imprisonment for life. –Simranjit Singh Mānn
The Tribune dated 18 January 2020
Comments by Simranjit Singh Mann: Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) states that our party is against Capital Punishment. The President should review his order rejecting the mercy plea of the criminals and commute the death penalty to imprisonment for life without parole and bail. They should not be allowed visitors and their imprisonment should take place a thousand kilometers from the place where they committed this heinous unforgivable crime. Most advanced countries have abolished capital punishment. Capital punishment of General Parvez Musharraf has also been waived as per our party’s request and we request the Government of Islamic Pakistan to spare the life of the Hindu Indian naval officer Jadhav who has been sentenced to death and to reduce the death sentence into life imprisonment.
