New Delhi: CPI(M) politburo member Prakash Karat Thursday said there was a bias against the Muslims in the case of execution of the death penalty in the country.
“There is a bias and an increasing feeling against the Muslims in the case of execution of the death penalty in the country,” Karat told a news channel.
“Three persons, including Yakub Mamon, were hanged till death in India in the last three years. All of them were Muslims. The death sentences of others were commuted or their mercy petitions are pending,” he said.
