Interesting story. 2 brothers apparently (I cannot accept as fact that they did, simply because a court in Pakistan said so ...) killed someone. They were arrested and tried and found guilty and will receive the death penalty. Yippeee. Ok, but what about the next part - a fine??? Whats up with that. How can you fine me and then kill me???? And you must wait until I am done paying the fine before you kill me, correct? So ... how fast do I have to pay the fine? Ahhhhhhhh maybe that is justice, and ... that is exactly why the case was decided as it was, and as many like it are -
- was justice done: yes, they are sentenced to die for their crime
But the judge, the community are not ready to kill them quite yet so when they pay off their fine (10 yrs, 30 years ...) then their sentence will be carried out. Justice.
