PM7004: Thoughts on the execution of Ajmal Kasab

On the 21st November 2012, India executed Ajmal Kasab. Now let us be clear on the Maratrean teaching concerning this event. To execute anyone, is always wrong, it is always a grave sin and crime against the law of heaven. In Kasab’s case, there was no serious doubt concerning his guilt – he confessed his crime, he never claimed innocence, and even though his lawyers sought to cast doubt on the validity of his confession, in a futile attempt to save his life, their attempts were more in the nature of seeking to rely upon a technicality, than that there was any genuine doubts in the truth of his confession. He died unrepentant. We must observe, that while India retains the penalty of death, its implementation has been very much in decline – this is the first use of that penalty in many years, and in what all must admit were the most extreme and exceptional circumstances. We should be hopeful, that rather than marking a deviation from that pattern of decline, this was simply an exceptional case, an outlier, which should not be considered in determining the overall direction of Indian governance.

Let us recount the reasons why Maratreanism condemns the death penalty, even in the case of such a man as Kasab. Firstly, it constitutes blasphemy against heaven, and a fraudulent justice. True and perfect justice belongs to heaven alone; whatever is found upon the earth labelled “justice” is but a blasphemous and fraudulent imitation of heaven. Some people without doubt are dangerous, and have proven that danger by their actions, and it is permissible to restrict their freedom for the safety of others. But never confuse that with justice – which promises that retribution somehow equals, or is equivalent to, or makes up for, the original wrong. It never can make up for the original wrong, and the calculus of equivalence is inevitably incoherent. Only heaven can perfectly reply to wrongdoing, because it replies, not with a new and different wrongdoing – and however we seek to make the two wrongdoings alike, we can never succeed completely, and insofar as we inevitably fail, we are guilty of injustice – as much as we falsely masquerade our injustice as justice – but heaven can reply to wrongdoing with perfect justice, because it replies, not with a new and different wrongdoing, but with exactly the same wrongdoing. Two wrongs do not make a right; and a wrongdoing is no less wrong that it is done in response to a previous wrongdoing. But heaven commits not two wrongs, but only one – for the wrongdoing given in reply is precisely the same wrongdoing to which it is the reply. True justice demands no multiplication of wrongdoings, which is why any so-called justice upon the earth must be false justice. So this condemnation of all earthly justice, applies especially to the so-called “ultimate punishment” – which we must understand instead as the ultimate crime.

Secondly, we believe that all capital punishment is a form of bloody human sacrifice unto the false god Pandal – and whoever advocates, practices, permits or approves capital punishment, whatever their outwardly professed religion, worships Pandal as their god in the depths of their heart. Whoever has Pandal as their god in their heart is without doubt infested with many of the most wicked and vile demons who serve Pandal. In order to be freed from possession by these demons, it is essential that one denounce completely capital punishment – until one does so, they will remain in one’s heart, wreaking havoc within one’s soul. Given that capital punishment is a form of false religion which worships evil itself with bloody human sacrifices, we must constantly condemn it in all its forms. Whoever teaches it, claiming to be a prophet, is without doubt a false prophet; and whatever scriptures advocate it, are without doubt false scriptures, by the false and lying prophets authored. The execution of Kasab was therefore a form of bloody human sacrifice unto a false god, and must be denounced utterly.

Thirdly, we must note the danger of the execution of the innocent. However, in noting this danger, we must not in any way suggest that the execution of the guilty is acceptable – that, somehow, if the system could be made perfect in its determinations of guilt and innocence, it would be acceptable, but that it cannot so be made perfect, it is unacceptable. Even if the system was perfect, it would still be a vile evil. But, as great a vile evil as it is, its imperfections render it an even greater evil. We might say, that the execution of the guilty wrongs them once, and the execution of the innocent wrongs them twice. And Pandal, and the most evil demons who serve him, while they love all blood of human beings and sacred animals, they love most especially the blood of innocents falsely accused of that which they have not done, and they revel in false accusations. This therefore is a further reason why we must always refrain from capital punishment. Now as to the case of Kasab, there was no doubt about his guilt, so we might think this reason was inapplicable. And yet, the use of capital punishment, in cases of undoubted guilt, encourages its use in cases where guilt is more doubtful – what nation, having ever had capital punishment, has restricted it only to cases of undoubted guilt? The few that might be said to have done this, have used it so rarely, that it is almost a case of de facto abolition on their part. The vast majority, that have used it, have used it in cases of undoubted guilt and doubtful guilt alike. For in every case of doubtful guilt, there is a prosecutor ready to insist that the doubtful is undoubted, and oftentimes a judge and jury ready to believe their blood-thirsty lies. So any execution of the guilty serves to encourage the execution of the innocent, and thus those who execute the guilty, have upon their heads, not only the blood of the guilty, but the blood of the innocent also. And with both kinds of blood their soul is stained, and grave is the horror that awaits them in the world to come – as they have executed, so will they be executed – not in a new and different execution, however alike, but in the very same execution! If they wish to escape this awful fate, they should renounce their evil, and pray to the souls of their victims for forgiveness – even then, that is no guarantee that they will so escape, only a hope. And they may also hope in the attainment in this life of the great enlightenment; but for one who has such blood upon their hands and their hearts, that is a very difficult task.

But as I said, while India remains in the thrall of many demons, yet despite this most recent wicked sacrifice thereunto, there is still great hope for that land, for this evil has been in decline there, and we have good reason to hope that this decline continue.

Now, we must ask ourselves, how did these demons come to reign in India? It is the same question of how demons came to reign throughout the world, for we must not think that India is in any way unique in being under demonic governance; indeed, wherever the usurpers rule, which is everywhere, vile demons rule through them, the demons who have appointed those usurpers to rule. Yet in those lands in which bloody sacrifices are practiced, the powers of these demons are stronger. But by this standard, India while more demon-possessed than some other nations, is certainly not among the most demon-possessed nations in the world. The most evil, wicked, and demonically possessed nations in the world, are without doubt the following – although we must note that the ranking of demonic possession will change from year to year, as the powers of the demons waxes and wanes in the various lands – but we may say the ranking in 2011 was as follows: Firstly, the most evil nation upon the earth, is without doubt China, with over 2000 bloody human sacrifices offered up to its false god Pandal in that year. Second most evil nation on earth is Iran, with over 360 bloody human sacrifices unto its false god Pandal. Third most evil nation is Saudi Arabia, with 82 bloody human sacrifices. And fourth most evil nation is Iraq, with 68 such sacrifices. Now all three of these nations claim Islam as their state religion, but their actions prove that their true state religion be not Islam but rather Pandal-worship – if indeed Islam itself be something other than Pandal-worship. If Allah be not Pandal, then it is not Allah who is their god, but rather Pandal. But the followers of Pandal are great liars, and myriad are the lies upon their lips and upon their hearts, thus they lie, to themselves and to others, when they deny the evil which they serve. Fifth most evil nation in the world, is the United States of America, with 43 such sacrifices. Sixth most evil nation in the world, is Yemen, with 41 such sacrifices. And the seventh most evil nation in the world is North Korea, with 30 such sacrifices. These seven powers of utmost wickedness are without doubt a veritable axis of evil. Great is the woe of those who have the misfortune to live under their dominion. And may all the powers of evil be soon overthrown!

Considering this list, it must be clear that while India is under the power of demons, it is under far less demonic influence than say the United States. Prior to 2012, the last time India had sacrificed anyone to Pandal and his demons was in 2004, eight years earlier, which in turn was the last time since 1995. So in 17 years, India offered up 3 sacrifices to Pandal. How many did the United States offer up in the same 17 years? Over 1016. So the United States is over 350 times more evil a nation than India. A per capita comparison reveals the difference in evil between the US and India to be even greater. The population of the US this year is over 311 million, that of India over 1.241 billion, that is 1241 million. So on a per person basis, over those 17 years, the US sacrificed around 3.4 people per a million people, while India sacrificed more like 0.002 people per a million. This reveals that, rather than just 350 times more evil than India, the United States is in fact 1700 times more evil than India! (One might object that this calculation is not strictly accurate, since it is considering the 2012 population of each country, when the population of each country in previous years was less; however, while the exact figure might be wrong, it is without doubt of the right order of magnitude, and that is the point, not the exact figure.) Taking all this into consideration, while we should condemn the action of India in executing Kasab, most of our condemnation must be saved for those countries far more evil than India – especially the Axis of Evil – China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, USA, Yemen, North Korea – the seven most evil nations in the world.

So how did these demons enter into India? Without doubt they have long been there, for many thousands of years. However, their most recent strength without doubt comes from the evil and wicked British Empire. India, they said, was the jewel in the crown of the British Empire. The British Empire might still exist today if it was not so addicted to evil; its evil produced its own downfall. For although India was and is such a jewel, the British did not treat it as such, but as something to be abused and exploited. Let us consider the case of Mahatma Gandhi – the most famous leader of the Indian independence movement – but he did not start out his life as an independence advocate; it was a position which he developed over time, in response to the discriminatory treatment he received by the British. This became especially clear to him, during the years he worked in proto-apartheid South Africa, and discovered that despite any theoretical equality of British subjects, the British Empire had no objection to the racist practices of its South African colonies against Indians. If the British Empire has treated Indians, not as second class citizens, but as full equals, would the Indian independence movement had ever gained the momentum that it did? Quite possibly not. The British lost India because they did not deserve it, because they were an empire of evil. And many of the things that are wrong in India today, are the fault of the wicked British.

The British at the height of their empire were addicted to Pandal-worship, even though they have since managed to wean themselves off this atrocity. The laws of England provided that even the most petty offences would be justification for bloody human sacrifice unto their false god – so great was the British addiction to this wickedness, they are renowned for it throughout history. As Samuel Romilly said in the House of Commons, on the 9th February 1810 – “there was no country on the face of the earth in which there had been so many different offences according to law to be punished with death as in England.” All many of offences were pretexts for human sacrifice, including pickpocketing, counterfeiting currency, stealing sheep, even attempted suicide (!). Truly, has there even been a nation in history as evil? An empire as wicked? And many of the more evil laws of India, and of many other lands formerly under Britain’s sway, were taken directly from Britain’s evil influence (consider for example the infamous section 377 of the Indian Penal Code).

If the British Empire had been more like the Holy Maratrean Empire, great evils would have been averted, and it might exist in the same vastness as at its heights even today. But it was doomed to destruction by the greatness of its wickedness.

The heart of the evil of the British Empire is the British royal family, who are afflicted with hereditary demonic possession. The only way to free themselves from these wretched demons which possess their souls, is to denounce the evil of their ancestors, and to denounce the British monarchy, and to advocate its abolition. Until they do as such, they will continue in the demonic thrall. But we should not hate them, but rather pray for their freedom from demonic tyranny.

Let us also mention now Pakistan, the cesspool of terror from which Kasab and his ilk emanated. Let us compare Pakistan to India. What percentage of Pakistanis are Hindus? 1.6%. What percentage of Indians are Muslim? 13.4%. So, let us understand this – many among the Muslims demanded their own country, yet they still remain in India over 13% of the population, while non-Muslims in Pakistan are only 3% of the population? Very many non-Muslims were expelled from Pakistan; while, there were also some expulsions of Muslims from India, it is clear that India has treated Muslims far better than Pakistan has treated Hindus. India, while it has a Hindu majority, is a secular state, in which all religions (Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islamic, Jewish, Zoroastrian and others) are equal in theory – and while the practice does not always match the theory, there can be no doubt that religious minorities in India are far better treated than in Pakistan. By contrast, Pakistan has Islam as a state religion, and is famous for its persecution of religious minorities (especially the poor Ahmadis).

We might ascribe this to the simple fact that the partition of India was the work of Islamic extremists, to whose demands the British foolishly succumbed, and the fruits of this hateful Islamic extremism upon which Pakistan was founded are seen in the reality of Pakistan today – where a fourteen year old girl gets shot in the head by the Pakistani Taliban, for the crime of advocating girl’s education – the Taliban believe that female literacy is a sin! And music! And this evil mob of madmen are directly supported by Pakistani intelligence!

We must note that Hinduism is inherently a religion of tolerance – by believing in many gods, or in other words, that the one God can be worshipped under countless names or forms – Hindus can accept the worship of others as being worthy of value like their own – you worship your gods, we worship ours – you worship God under your names and images, we worship God under our names and images. No doubt, individual Hindus, and various Hindu movements, are capable of a great deal of intolerance – but, the fundamental principles of Hinduism are tolerant, even if Hindus be imperfect (as all humans are imperfect) in living up to its principles. By contrast, Islam as it exists today, is an inherently intolerant religion – our god is the only true god, all other gods are false gods; our god can be worshipped only under one name, all other names are the names of false gods; our god can be worshipped only in the way in which we worship, and not in any way; our prophet was the last of all prophets, and whoever follows him is a false prophet – the truth, however, is that whoever claims to be the final prophet, prior to Second Triumph, is without doubt a false prophet! Truly, Islam as it exists today is a false religion, in a way in which Hinduism is not. Should it surprise us that a false religion such as Islam is today produces the atrocity which is Pakistan?

Imagine if, instead of adhering to Christianity, the British Empire had adhered to a more tolerant religion, like Hinduism? The British looked down upon the Hindus, as following a false religion, as worshipping false gods; as indeed they looked down upon the peoples of many other lands they subjected. And this disdain for the religion of those people was reflected in the way the British Empire treated them. Imagine if the British Empire had adhered to a tolerant faith, of polytheism or inclusive monotheism? For all its faults, when the Roman Empire conquered a territory, they did not tell the locals "your gods are false gods, worship ours instead"; they told the local inhabitants, "your gods are our gods, our gods are your gods". This made a degree of tolerance and internal cohesion possible for the Roman Empire of which the British Empire could only ever dream. The religious error of the British doomed their empire. And we should note, that the rise of Christianity in the Roman Empire corresponds with its fall in the West. Of course, we should shy away from overall simplistic narratives, that want to blame the entirety of the fall of Rome upon Christianity. But an objective observer cannot deny that Christianity played a role. Rome in its dying days had a great spiritual need, and if something that could truly fill that had arisen, the Roman Empire might still exist today. Christianity could never fill that need, and under Christianity the Roman Empire could never survive; what was truly needed was a Reformed Paganism; but despite some attempts at reform (such as under the Emperor Julian), those attempts were all too little, too late.

What am I doing, suggesting how usurpational powers (whether the British Empire or the Roman Empire) could hold on to power? There are two ways in which usurpation may end - in overthrow, and in conversion. When an usurper converts to true faithfulness to Maratreanism, they cease to be an usurper; they will immediately subject their power to obedience to the Prophet-in-Council; they will become like unto a provincial or diocesan prefect (if they are not formally so appointed). Indeed, conversion is the best way for usurpation to end, albeit it is the rarest. But since it is the best way, we should advice it whenever possible. And even when full conversion is not yet possible, we should always encourage the usurpers to move further towards conversion, and to lessen the power of the demons upon them, such as by giving up the practice of bloody sacrifices, the vilest form of Pandal worship. Even if the movement for conversion enables the usurpers to survive longer in their usurpation - that matters little, since the end of one usurper will just be another. It is better in fact, to remain with one usurper moving toward conversion, than for that one usurper to be replaced by many, as far away from conversion as ever.
