SRINAGAR (AFP) Held Kashmirs legislature will debate whether to ask New Delhi for clemency for a Kashmiri man sentenced to death for his role in the 2001 attack on the Indian parliament, a lawmaker said Saturday. Independent legislator Abdul Rashid said he had submitted a resolution to the IHK assembly speaker seeking clemency for Afzal Guru, a businessman from the northern Kashmir. Let the house resolve that Afzal Guru be granted amnesty on humanitarian grounds against the death sentence granted to him by the Supreme Court of India, reads the resolution. Rashid said executing Guru could have serious consequences for the political situation in Held Kashmir, where large protests against his sentence have been held in the past. Guru was convicted of plotting the December 13, 2001 raid on the Indian parliament that left 15 people dead, including the five attackers, and brought India and Pakistan close to war. Guru insists he was not involved in the plot. Hardline Kashmiri leader Syed Ali Geelani has warned New Delhi of major unrest if such a blunder as executing Guru is carried. India cannot control the situation here - notwithstanding its military power, Geelani said last month. Gurus death will create hundreds of Afzal Gurus in Held Kashmir. More than 47,000 people have been killed since a Muslim struggle started in Held Kashmir in 1989 and anti-India sentiments run high. The house wil discuss the resolution during the upcoming summer session of the state legislature beginning September 26, IHK assembly speaker Akbar Lone told reporters. Rashids move follows the passage of a similar resolution in Indias southern state of Tamil Nadu seeking clemency for three men convicted of the 1991 murder of former Indian prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. Last week, a Tamil Nadu court stayed the trios execution for two months. Indias home ministry has called on the president to reject the mercy petition filed by Guru. The main opposition in IHK assembly, Peoples Democratic Party, said it would support the resolution. Indian-occupied Kashmir remains under heavy military control but this summer has not seen the cycle of violence and strict curfews that have rocked the disputed Himalayan region over recent years. Ruling party members as well as the opposition believe that hanging Guru could break the peaceful atmosphere in the region. A top Kashmiri politician, Farooq Abdullah, Indias national minister for renewable energy, has stated his opposition to hanging Guru as it could transform him into a hero for Kashmirs youth. India has not carried out an execution since 2004. The Supreme Court says the punishment is reserved for the rarest of rare crimes.
