Is Capital Punishment Acceptable


Even after entering the twenty first century, we read about capital punishment in newspapers. Is it acceptable or not? This is one of the most controversial issues in current legal system. Our judicial system is how much fair? Is it true that though there are may be a connection between justice and punishment it is the hidden hand of the powerful which moves the sword? Is not capital punishment purely a subjective matter? Capital punishment cannot be justified from either the material or spiritual point of view. If we look at it from the materialistic point of view then death is the end of everything. The criminal actually suffers more if he is given life sentence. He does not actually have to bear physical captivity nor does he have to suffer from physiological stress till the end of his days. On the other hand hanging releases him from pain and suffering far more quickly.
