Anand Mahindra wants to execute rapists, murderers of minor girls and he is not the only one

Business magnate Anand Mahindra has volunteered to execute the rapists and murderers of minors- via a tweet.

Industrialist and chairman of the Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra on Sunday in a strongly worded tweet volunteered to "execute" rapists and murderers of young girls, in light of the recent gang rapes and murders of minors being reported nation-wide.

Anand Mahindra also tweeted an NDTV story on the Surat rape and murder case of an 11-year-old whose body was recovered from a cricket field with over 86 injuries on her body.

His tweet reads, "The job of executioner is not an aspirational job. But for the execution of brutal rapists and murderers of young girls I would volunteer unhesitatingly. I work hard to stay calm, but my blood boils over to see this happen in our country.."

The Mumbai-based business magnate's tweets mirror a popular pro-capital punishment sentiment in the nation against the rapists and murderers of minors.

This comes at a time when the country is reeling under the shock of rape of minors in Jammu's Kathua, Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, Gujarat's Surat, Bihar's Patna, Odisha's Balasore among others.

But he seems to have contenders for the same 'executioner's post'.
