    1. The book “The Hanging of Afzal Guru”, with a note of introduction by ‘Arundhati Roy’, carries the articles, interviews, opinions, and essays of lawyers, journalists, academicians, and social activists. It introduces untapped angles of the attack on Indian parliament. There are straight to the point articles that talk about the unfair trial of Afzal Guru’s.

    2. This is such a lucid way to put forth just how many injustices were done in the name of the law and democracy to one man who should have been let off after 10 years at best. A must read for critical thinking individuals, this collection of essays tries to shed light on all facets of the causes and aftermath of the Afzal Guru case. Definitely a book I'm going to revisit many times over.

    4. So Muhammad Afzal Guru was hanged to "satisfy" the barbaric "conscience" of Indians but I also get the impression that the whole Parliament attack episode was staged not so much as to get rid of some individuals but to shamelessly justify India's attack of Pakistan which never happens.
