Capital punishment is a legal process, where a person is sentenced to death by the state as a punishment for capital crimes. Capital crimes in Pakistan may include murder, adultery by married person etc. Most of the countries of the world has now decided to abolish the capital punishment and almost every country has completely removed this punishment for people having age less than eighteen.

Capital punishment is requires due to following reasons, firstly, to set an example for others, Due to Capital punishment of criminals other people get cautious and stay away from these capital crimes. This will help in reducing the number of crimes and hence the number of criminals.

Secondly, it is a financial burden on the state to cater the expense of large amount of criminals for the remaining life in jails from the whole country. People due to poverty may also commit crimes to live under the shed of government expense and live their lives in jails (where the standard of living is higher than their living standard). For the security of these criminals, the state must provide trained soldiers to overlook the security so that criminals cannot escape, this is an additional cost which has to bear.

But on the contrary, we don’t have perfect judicial system on which we can rely upon completely. This may result in taking lives of innocent people. The prejudice behaviour of a judge due to bribing or not providing suffice evidence may give decision of court against the innocent person.

The family of beheaded person will always be finding a way to get revenge from the state which may result in the formation of terrorist groups. The Children of this person will fill desperate and if no one will finance them they will become poor. The children life will get into trouble.

Finally, to conclude my topic I would say that capital punishment should be there in order to remove the criminals from the society. It may affect few persons but the whole society will be relieved from most of criminals.
