Ajmal Kasab hanging: Thank you Pranab Mukherjee, say victims
"Before anybody could react to the rejection of the mercy petition (of Kasab), everything is over. That is the thing which I cherish."
Unnikrishnan, a retired ISRO official, said, "Definitely there was a long way to go for the sense of closure...Kasab's execution is only one chapter. The perpetrators are still moving around in Pakistan and the anti-India thinking in Pakistan is too much now, it should come down."
He said finally justice has been done in one case.
"...The root cause is hatred that is still there and in my opinion that spoils the general calm attitude in India. I still feel many more things have to be done. We should not lose the momentum because we have hanged a culprit. That is not closure," Unnikrishnan said.

"I couldn't believe it when I heard it but I was all over television. Slowly, it sinked in that the man who had killed some men I respected the most had been hanged. I can't think of a more fitting tribute to the men I was unable to save."
