Co-ordinator of the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha
Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
Reasoning:

“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.”
