The discussion leads us to the conclusion that a society must have strong provisions to deter crime and punish the guilty. Rule of the law is a precondition for progress. Also it is important to create a positive milieu for economic activities, art, and culture. This is possible if there is security from terrorism and crime and the freedom to live life according to ones will as long as the state's law and order is not broken ordinarily. The political protests or protests for human causes should be treated at a different level. Law should also consider variety of situations in which the guilty commit the crime. The present crisis of faith in the society is because many guilty people have their say supported by their wealth, power and loopholes of the legal system. This needs to be addressed if collective faith has to be restored. Yet we should avoid the statist or mechanical interpretation of law while punishing the guilty. Albert Einstein rightly points out that God did not create evil. Just as darkness is the absence of light, evil is the absence of Good. Mercy on guilty is not to be advocated, but while fixing the guilt utmost caution and humanitarian attitude need to be maintained. Ultimately love would make life beautiful and truth would survive. Mercy should be deserved. Aberrations need strong deterrence, but a chance to say sorry and improve should be allowed to the guilty.
