Undoubtedly more Chinese die on death row then rest of the world put together.
The total number of countries carrying out executions has fallen from 40 to 25 in a decade, and 129 countries are abolitionist in practice. India and America are two of only five democracies still to use the death penalty.
Since a law should adhere to the evolving standards of humanity, Why do we still practice hanging?
1) how much faith do u have in the forensic and police…. what is the probability that they have fudged the evidence. I know a thousand of innocent people were booked under TADA/POTA and wasted years without trial… Would you like an innocent guy to be hanged?
2) even if the guy has committed the crime isn’t it ok if you stash him away in a solitary confinement for 20 years… long enough that he never sees the sunlight again in his youth? If we cannot create life, we have no right to take one.
