Kamal opines regarding death sentence to those involved in assault upon girl

A college girl in Delhi was brutally assaulted in moving bus.  This heinous crime perpetrated upon the girl has triggered countrywide protests.

Further, South Indian artistes have opined that the accused should be hanged. 

But, Kamal Haasan opined regarding the crime

‘Punishment to a crime should not be another crime. Even death sentence is a crime which happens via law.’

Kamal Haasan participated in the audio launch for ‘Viswaroopam’ in Kochi, Kerala.  Then a question was put to Kamal Haasan with regard to crime perpetrated upon a girl in moving bus in Delhi.  Kamal Haasan was asked to opine regarding death sentence to the accused.

Kamal Haasan spoke regarding the issue which has triggered nationwide protests:-

‘The bus in which the crime happened is my bus.  The place where it took place is my capital Delhi.  The affected girl is my sister.  The one who perpetrated the crime upon the girl is my brother.  I am ashamed about this.’

‘I do not agree to sentencing the accused to death.  It is not appropriate to choose solution for a crime through another crime.  Death sentence itself is a form of murder conducted under the supervision of law’ opined Kamal Haasan.
