Mumbai: As the entire nation welcomes the government’s decision to hang 26/11 terror convict Ajmal Amir Kasab, social activist Anna Hazare is of the view that Kasab should have been hanged in full public view and not clandestinely. He also opined that the decision to hang him has come after a lot of delay.

On the other hand, the Shiv Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut has hailed kasab’s hanging and called it a tribute to former Sena chief Bal Thackeray.

It is to be mentioned that the Shiv Sena MLAs in October had given a memorandum to President Pranab Mukherjee during his Mumbai visit and urged him to give his consent to hang Ajmal Kasab and Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. The mercy petition of Afzal Guru is still pending with the President.
