URGENT ACTION REQUIRED – EXECUTION IMMINENT AFTER PLEA REJECTED!

The Supreme Court of India rejected the commutation plea of Devender Pal Singh Bhullar on 12 April. This verdict could affect the cases of at least 17 more prisoners.

Devender Pal Singh Bhullar was sentenced to death in August 2001 for his involvement in a bomb attack in New Delhi in 1993 that killed nine people. He was arrested at the New Delhi Airport in January 1995 under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA), a law that subsequently lapsed, and contained provisions incompatible with international fair trial standards.

Devender Pal Singh Bhullar had no access to a lawyer during his initial detention and trial. He was found guilty on the basis of an unsubstantiated confession that he made to the police. He later retracted his statement, claiming it was made under police pressure. In March 2002, the Supreme Court upheld Devender Pal Singh Bhullars death sentence, though one of the three judges on the bench had found him not guilty, saying there was no evidence to convict him. A review petition was dismissed by the same Supreme Court judges, again by a 2 to 1 majority, in December 2002. Devender Pal Singh Bhullar Bhullar has been receiving treatment at a psychiatric facility in New Delhi and in 2011 his lawyer requested that the Supreme Court consider his mental ill-health as grounds for commuting his death sentence.

HOW CAN ANY SANE HUMAN BEINGS DEMAND THAT A MAN THAT IS MENTALLY UNWELL, PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO WALK BE FIT ENOUGH TO BE SERVED THE DEATH PENALTY?

The President of India rejected Devender Pal Singh Bhullar’s mercy petition in May 2011, eight years after the request was filed. Devender Pal Singh Bhullar challenged the decision before the Supreme Court, seeking commutation of his death sentence on the grounds of inordinate delay in its consideration and challenging the constitutionality of his prolonged stay on death row. The Supreme Court rejected his plea on 12 April. This decision is likely to affect at least 17 more prisoners whose mercy petitions have been rejected by the President.

Please intervene immediately:

Calling upon the Indian government to not execute Devender Pal Singh Bhullar, to remove him from death row immediately, and retry his case in proceedings that comply with international fair trial standards.

Urging them to immediately halt any further executions, commute all death sentences to terms of imprisonment, and establish an official moratorium on executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty;

Reminding the Indian authorities that the UN General Assembly has repeatedly called for a moratorium on executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty, and pointing out that Indias decision to resume executions has set the country against regional and global trends towards abolition of the death penalty.

  1. It is not the latest picture of Prof. You can delete it.

  2. Dear Hindu dharma. Get used to sikhs living in true democracy’s with freedom of speech exposing india’s persecution of minorities and the injustice’s of corrupt Indian state . We do not hate Hindus because the politicians of India have no faith. They murder,lie and cheat for personal gain. Truth is eternal. Sat Sri akaal.

  3. Tony these people dont understand how we feel we lost our family’s in 1984 and now we hear another death penalty it all comes back to 1984… This topic is very touchy as I was born in 1984 my family has lost alot… Our family members had to leave the country leave there family’s behide, no one knew if they were dead or alive as they were missing for years or kidnaped… They did this so they werent killed or arrested then later called a terrorist.!! Its horrible when your old grandparents tell you story’s of your loved ones being missing, dead, kidnaped or raped then left to die… This wound is so deep and hurts once its open, it brings bad memories!!
    I hope the Indian government knows what they are doing… Please stop the death penalty!!!

  4. To Hindu Dharma,had it not been for the Sikhs there would be no Hindu,s today and this is the way you pay respect back.

    Shame on you.

  5. All the angry Sikhs living in Canada and UK need to Realise that India has moved on and doesn’t need these khalistani scums who speak ill and spew hatred living in safety. Spare your fellow Sikhs in India from the venom. We want to live together and be happy, Sikhs are a part and parcel of Hindu dharma. With this said , I strongly feel that Bullard should be released and pardoned .

  6. What about the Death panelty for people who killed hundreds of Siks? They still living a normal life. why all the harsh punishments for Sikhs only? Why the police and govt have to torture siks in jails? I thinks there are alot of questions Indian Govt have to answer before they hang him. There is no Justice in india and all there is “Dirty Politics”. I used to be proud to be an Indian but over the past few year its been changed. I believe that one day Indian govt will realise their mistake. RAJ KAREGA KHALSA.

  7. Anyone that fights the system isn’t a terrorist they are looking after the innocent people like us from getting killed and raped in our punjab. Nor matter who you are WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING THE SYSTEM NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS TODAY WE AS A COMMUNITY WE WILL STAND UP BY EACH OTHERS SIDE AND WILL FIGHT TO OUR LAST BREATH… ***SHAME ON INDIAN GOVERNMENT STILL USING DEATH PEATLY ON OUR BROTHERS… INDIAN GOVERNMENT IS THE BIGGEST TERRORIST IN OUR EYES AND IN GOD EYES TOO NO HUMAN HAS THE RIGHT TO HANG SOMEONE IN MENTAL HEALTH*** WAKE UP EVIL INDIAN GOVERMENT LOOK AROUND YOU!!!

  8. On the auspicious day of Vaisakhi every household Sikh is feeling the pain of what this poor man and his family have been subjected to time and time again for no proven reason!

    Professor Bhullar is innocent!

    Why death penalty is only given to Sikhs?!

  9. The world needs to wake up to this.
    Tony.

  10. This is another example where, the Indian authority is crushing its minorities.
    In this case A judge has totally cleared Professor Bhullar,but yet he faces execution, murders who have burnt Christian/ Dalits in India have been treated very Lightly.

    When Professor bullar went from Germany to India it was on the assurance that he will not be given the Death Penalty and yet the Indian authority has stuck two fingers to Germany and Europe.
    Please note the world at present could possibly witness a “Nuclear conflict” in the far east(i.e. North/South Korea situation), but the world must not forget that India is also a “Nuclear Power” and if it carries out the execution, whats stopping India sticking two finger To the united nations in future and threatening the world peace with its Nuclear Arsenal.
