Aku Soku Zan

February 15, 2011 1 comment

Thats the catchphrase of a popular character Hajime Saitou from the famous (Japanese) Anime series – Rurouni Kenshin. (one of my favourites)

Literally, it means “Swift Death To Evil” which is the code by which the Shinsengumi live.

I have always wondered – why can’t we practice Aku Soku Zan on terrorists caught on our soil? As of now, this does not happen unfortunately. Rather these assholes are provided free accommodation as if they are on some vacation to this country. I am proud that our country has a centuries old “Atithi Devo Bhavah” policy, but guys, don’t confuse Assholes with Atithis.

Some people talk about their rights – Right to a fair trial, Right to live as long as not proven guilty, etc. And after spending a lot of public money on their trials (as well as serving them nashta and newspaper) they are given a death sentence (which might be administered sometime in the future).

But wait, 1-2 months before the actual execution, another plane with innocent passengers gets hijacked by a new breed T-organisation demanding the release of their convict friend in return for the passengers. And there goes the bastard; free, unpunished,  given a new lease of life from where he can start his second innings. He becomes a hero in his nation and probably gets honored with his ‘conquest’ gaining a mention in their history books.

Disgusting isn’t it? Let me tell you one thing – Aku Soku Zan never dissapoints!!

Jai Hind,
