Shailesh Rai, the Senior Policy Advisor at Amnesty International India has responded to an article by R Jagannathan, the Editor-In-Chief of news website “Firstpost”, challenging India’s death penalty. Jagannathan’s original article was supportive of the country’s death sentence, particularly in the recent case of Yakub Memon, who was hung on July 30th. Both articles raise points of interest in this ongoing debate.
