Shoddy Logic

Afzal should be hanged. He waged war against the state. There are several other reasons to support his hanging.

But the shoddiest reason I have heard is that we should hang him to prevent another IC814 type hijacking from happening. Hang him for the crimes he committed.

And if we want to avoid hijackings, let us have a no-negotiation-with-terrorists policy in place.

Let us not mix up the two.
