Did he deserve to die? That’s the question murmuring across India after today’s execution of Yakub Memon, convicted for the bombings that claimed 257 lives. A court decided he was a planner and middleman who financed and stockpiled munitions. But he was the only one from the attacks sentenced to die, an exceptionally rare fate in India. A national debate over the matter ended abruptly with this morning’s hanging, just hours after the Supreme Court rejected his final appeal — a move likely to bolster demands for finding the true masterminds, who remain at large.
