Dharwad hotelier applies for position of hangman for rape convicts

Daijiworld Media Network - Dharwad (MS)

Dharwad, Dec 15: Cases of rape and sexual harassment against women have increased drastically in the country. People everywhere have been expressing their rage against these inhumane acts. The Nirbhaya and Disha cases have sent shockwaves throughout the country. The citizens of the country are demanding the hanging of rapists. But the irony is that the country has shortage of hangmen to carry out death sentences.

In the midst of all this, a man from Dharwad has attracted the attention of people by applying for the position of hangman.

Shaukath, a resident of Navalangunda town of the district had applied for the post of hangman way back in 2013. He had appealed to the government to permit him to carry out the death sentence that was awarded to the convicts. Shaukath, who came to know that there was no hangman in Karnataka, had applied to the prison officials of government of Karnataka to appoint him for the position.

Shaukath, who exudes patriotic spirit, says, "Every one wants to be a doctor or engineer. But I have applied for the position of hangman in order to serve my country. I have known all the aspects of this job. If the government gives me the post, I will carry out the same pefectly."

Shaukath runs a small hotel at Navalagunda. He says, "There are many convicts who are sentenced to death in various jails in the country. But their sentence is not carried out as there are no hangmen. If I get an opportunity, I will do this job. I have even travelled to Bengaluru and Delhi in connection with this job."

    The need of present hour is job. We have hundreds of thousands of jobless youths who are looking for any job. They voted for bjp expecting job as prmised by the custodian of our nation. However, he is busy is foreign tours and his assistant is busy in creating misunderstanding among religions to hide the dakaiti and wrong doings being carried out by them. BJP is on the edge of selling out india itself. It has failed in every field and is creating unnecessary things in india to keep people busy and to avoid questioning on employment and many other promises done by them at the time of election. MPs are busy is piling up of fund in their name and in benami accounts in local and swiss banks. I think india will be number one poor country if same thing continues for couple of years. Foreign invstors have begun to return back to their country closing down their business and taking back the fund they invested here.

    I am fully in favor of your sensible comment. As you mentioned, electrocution is the best to get rid of such idiots. It is quick and easy.

    No. Electric chair is inhumane.
    Even though these criminals deserve it, we as a society are not barbaric like these criminals.
    Lethal injection is the best way.

    In hard and trying times as this, any job plucked up is the need of the hour. One wouldn't mind if the job is a decent one or not.
