Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi  - What about Afzal Guru, who attacked Parliament, our temple of democracy, in 2001? That offence predates Kasab’s heinous act by many years.

Actor Anupam Kher - Justice may not replace the feeling of loss but it gives strength & hope to continue life with renewed belief in system we live in. #Kasab

Writer Taslima Nasreen - Millions of Kasabs will be born if we do not stop brainwashing our innocent children with religion. #Kasab #terrorism

Music composer Vishal Dadlani - Don't be fooled or distracted by the death of Kasab. Be sad that we haven't been able to get the real masterminds. Or sort ourselves out.
