Srila Prabhupada Biography

Founder of the Hare Krishna Movement
Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Legal?"

“[I]t is supported that a murderer should be condemned to death so that in his next life he will not have to suffer for the great sin he has committed…

In human society, if one kills a man he has to be hanged. That is the law of the state.”
