Parmatmananda Saraswati Biography

Co-ordinator of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Legal?"

“Capital punishment is allowed under Hindu tradition. Lord Rama is the embodiment of dharma, yet he killed King Bali, who had stolen his own brother’s wife… Sometimes I feel that the crimes today are even more heinous than in the past. Hence capital punishment, if sanctioned by the scriptures, should continue.”
