What analysis being done by Mr. P Chidambaram on Afzal Guru ?
On 23rd Feb, 2011 PC accepted in Parliament that Afzal's mercy petition hasn't been sent to President's office (however, the fact was leaked long ago by a person from Karnataka through President's RTI wing). According to PC they have chalked out some NEW PLAN for sending such requests to President's office. Meanwhile he says the reason for delay is that some sort of RESEARCH & ANALYSIS is going on Criminal's Guru. Lets see the series of events on Afzal Guru's case:
December 13, 2001: Five terrorists had attacked Parliament leaving seven security personnel dead. Afzal Guru, a resident of Sopore in Jammu and Kashmir, was charged with plotting the attack a few days later.
December 18, 2002: Delhi High Court awarded death sentence to Guru following which he moved the Supreme court.
August 4, 2005: But the apex court upheld the death sentence. Guru's hanging was fixed for October 20, 2006
Afzal's wife Tabassum had filed a mercy petition and as a result his execution was stayed.
23nd of June 2010: The Ministry of Home Affairs has claimed that it recommended the President's office to reject the mercy petition.
7th of January 2011: A whisleblowing site indianleaks.in has leaked a document which states that the mercy petition file is not with President of India.
On The mercy petition for Afzal Guru, convicted and sentenced to death for his role in the Parliament House attack, has not yet been forwarded to President Pratibha Patil, Home minister P Chidambaram disclosed in New Delhi on 23 Feb 2011.
On being caught PC says he is doing some research on Afzal. What sort of research is this CAN ANYBODY GUESS ???

They have turned heartless in the name of communal votebank.
ONLY IF AFSAL HAS ENTERED THE PARLIAMENT AND CLAIMED 4 OR 5 MP'S LIVES, THEN ONLY PC WILL KNOW THE VALUE OF JAWAN'S LIFE.
Did u see in the recent verdict that godhra train burning was a conspiracy, no one shed a single tear for 59 people who were burned alive and the media also showed as the verdict was a harsh one. Congress says decision will be taken by the highest judiciary.
No one is saying Nalini (Rajiv killer) should be spared. SHE MUST BE HANGED AS PER THE EARLIER VERDICT.
IT IS UR GANDHI FAMILY, EVEN PLAYING POLITICAL GAIN IN THIS MATTER ALSO BY POSING 2 FORGIVE HER BY THEIR SUPPOSED "MAGNANIMITY". SONIA TRIED 2 BRING DOWN HER DEATH SENTENCE. PRIYANKA VISITING HER BREAKING PRISON RULES.
I AM ASKING WHO ARE THEY TO FORGIVE NALINI?
WHO WILL FORGIVE FOR THE PEOPLE AND POLICEMEN WHO DIED ALONG WITH RAAJIV GANDHII???

The Congress headed UPA is a very secretive govt on many counts and when they reveal something it is more startling as well. A PM openly agrees that he ''could do nothing'' in a coalition and in the same voice asserts that his govt would not spare the corrupt people! A person who could not even ask his erring colleagues to step down, is he going to have him punished?!
His defending the infamous Telecom issue, in the Spectrum deals, expressing only the ''methodology'' followed by earlier govt, for wrong reasons, but keeping silent on the allottments to non players, allowing them to sell their shares to ''real players'' and earn big profit and other irregularities are to be noted! He agrees in generic way that there is much corruption but refuses to accept the corruption in Telecom dept etc directly!
His own directly controlled Space dept had made big deals that have turned highly questionable and he is again repeating that he ''doesn't know'' a thing about the mega deal! That Mohan Parasaran, their counsel, had long before objected to the deal had been exposed but there is not a word about this from him! Is the PM really not knowing things or doesn't want to know a thing going on under his own nose, for the only gain of remaining as PM?
Worse still, he appointed a Committe headed by Chaturvedi, former Cabinet Secretary who cleared the Space deal earlier during his tenure, to look into the complaints now! The same way he appointed the former Telecom Secretary Thomas as CVC, to probably 'deal' with Spectrum case himself!
And with all these glaring acts to sabotage the truths about corrupt deals of his govt, he has the guts to declare that he would not leave ''without completing his mission'' which is anyone's doubt, if it was the corrupt mission / mission to save the corrupt ones!
As for Afzal case, he is strongly supported by radical militant groups of muslims who weild a powerful clout with the community in sensitive areas. Their vote bank is sought to be 'used' for the party at all cost. Their continuing to keep mercy petitions of dangerous criminals found guilty and awarded death sentence by courts, is highly risky for the nation, since some terrorists could demand their release, after abducting a VIP!
Besides, the lax attitude to book people supporting secessionists, militants etc, while all strong arm methods are used against the opposition parties, who expose the govt wrongs, is testimony enough of the diabolical intents of the Congress. They are least committed to uphold the national integrity or communal harmony! They are corrupt and self serving to the core, out to do anything to gain and retain power!

The information you have stated is the one the BJP has and was presented by Chandan Mitra in a news debate. However the only credible information in this regard is the one given to the Parliament by the Home Minister. No data presented by the BJP is as valid and true as that of the HM as presented in the Parliament.
So there is every reason to believe that the above information is FALSE and is presented with political motives. Why are you and the BJP not concerned about the mercy petition in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case pending for much longer that that of Afzal Guru? That too was a terrorist attack. While there are no sympathies for Afzal Guru, ignoring the HINDU TERRORISTS, from across the border, involved in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination and raising an issue of a MUSLIM TERRORIST from across the border alone is called THIRD RATE COMMUNAL POLITICS.
All terrorists will be dealt with as the law of the land says at the appropriate time. Afzal Guru is no exception unless the BJP wants to secure its north Indian Brahmin vote bank.

I agree with Objectivist dat d attacks may be plannd by Cong & PC to divert people s attention thats y dey r trying dere best to save Afzal.
While I disagree with INDIA INC that d above facts are presented by BJP. These are not DATAS about how corrupt INC leaders are but are facts which are recorded by media, Govt, Police etc. which includes Indian Courts decision dates. A perfect FOOL can only say dat these are STATISCAL DATAS manipulated by opposition.

Even though there are lot of questions about afzal guru, chidambara is keeping mum.?!!
Do indians deserve any explanation on this ? INC does not seem to think so. Afzal guru attack is a war on india. INC's silence on this makes me think if INC is supporting terrorists and if attack on parliament was idea of INC to divert people's attention over other important issues.
I wonder what would the fate of deals INC makes with USA on India's behalf. BT Brinjal was just one example.
I think on political front, INC is just waiting for muslims to grow to 40 percent in next 20 years. THen it will get support from all muslim parties like MIM (which is an extremist islamic political party) and it will rein on india for ever, since all muslims vote together.
Digvijay singh's comments, protecting muslim terrorists, is a way to demonize hindus and make them target in future and secure muslim votes without much effort.
