The Jaish-e-Mohammad militant., Afzal Guru was 43 years of age. He was from Doabgah (Seer) village in the countryside of North Kashmir. He left behind his wife Tabassum and his 14 year old son Ghalib according to the IndiaToday.

Earlier on Oct 3, 2006, Afzal Guru's wife Tabasum Guru files a mercy petition with then President A P J Abdul Kalam. That mercy plea was rejected by the Indian President, Pranab Mukherjee few days back, said the Rashtrapati Bhavan spokespeman Venu Rajamony,

The confirmation of the rejection of the mercy plea reached the Home Ministers office on 03 February 2013. And this cleared the way for the execution of the death sentence of Afzal Guru.

Afzal Guru along with Shaukat Hussain (a former Delhi University student) and SAR Geelani (a college teacher in New Delhi ) were given the death punishment, which is given in 'rare of the rarest cases' in the Indian Judicial system. Later on Afshan Guru and SAR Geelani were given benefit of doubt and released by the Supreme Court. Shaukat Hussain Guru  was released from Delhi's Tihar Jail on  Dec 30, 2010.

Looking at the prevailing circumstances, the cable television services has been cut off from the valley, as a measure to keep peace.

The BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy said in his statement: "Though delayed, we still feel that the hanging of Afzal Guru was a right action. It has been done and the people of this country have been wanting and waiting for it for a long time".

Afzal Guru showed no signs of remorse: Tihar officials: Jail officials who oversaw the entire preparation, says ... bit.ly/12cPKmn

In November 2012, Ajmal Kasab, the terrorist from Pakistan who was main accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack was executed in a Pune jail in a top-secret operation. This execution seems to have brought mixed feelings in public as evident from the tweets above. Hopefully the message of Indian Government would have reached the terror groups that India will no more allow such attacks and we are not as soft as considered.
