Mohammad Afzal, also known as Afzal Guru,
Afzal Guru was sentenced to death by a sessions court on December 18, 2002 for the 2001 militant attack on Parliament House. The verdict was upheld by the Delhi High Court on October 29, 2003 and by the Supreme Court on August 4, 2005.
A sessions court also fixed the date of his hanging on October 20, 2006 in Tihar jail.

The mercy petition had been filed four years ago by Tabassum, wife of Afzal Guru.

Afzal filed a mercy petition with the President, who forwarded it to the home ministry for its comments. The home ministry had sent the file to the Delhi government's home ministry for its comments, as per the laid out procedure.

On May 18, 2010, the Delhi government has backed the death sentence but added that there is a need to examine the implications of the law and order situation while carrying out the Supreme Court's verdict

[Justice is important or the law and order situation that is your votes]

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna sent the file on Afzal Guru to North Block on June 3. The file was sent after 16 reminders from the Home Ministry to the Sheila Dikshit government.

The Union Home Ministry has recommended to President Pratibha Patil that the mercy petition of Parliament attack convict Mohammed Afzal Guru, who is on the death row, should be rejected.

Now what will happen in the case of Afzal Guru as The Union Home Ministry rejected the mercy petition of Afzal Guru?

Now President of India can decide his fate.

To waste the time of Indian Population, and to delay punishment for the sake of votes -

President, under the 44th Amendment, can send the advice of the Council of Ministers for reconsideration.
But if the Council of Ministers sends the same advice again, the President “shall act in accordance with the advice tendered after such reconsideration”

They are making a fool of us. Let us wait for the action.
My gut feel is that they will wait till Bihar election s are over.

As long as he stays in prison, I don't care if politicians use him for elections. It is good use of him.

Death is a remedy for him....but it is expensive to keep him

Thank god for that.. but its take tooo long .. 2001 he did that and its 2010 which is HALF gone already .. We should not have so many appeals etc.. one court does it .. ONE APPEAL ad thats it .. or maybe we should also go with the JURY thing.. and also when one case is take up.. let it go the fully no tareek pe tareekh.. and years...

This is total rubbish. I am reading a lot on this all these days. I do not understand why everything is being delayed in this case. From 2001 to 2010, such a big gap..and now also..this is biggest mockery of Indian judicial system. And these politicans...biggest burden on all of us..huh!
