(Excerpt from message of Shri Datta Swami)
When a criminal is hanged and if you see the process of hanging, you will sympathise the criminals, who look like sages with their grown hair and beards. You will criticise the judge and the jailor, who are implementing this execution. You are not aware of the crime. If you see the crime committed by the criminal, you will kill the criminal on the spot. At least, the constitution allowed him to be alive for a long time before execution in the name of trials. Another part of ignorance is that you think that death is the end of human being. Only the body perishes and the soul is still alive. The soul is subjected to the threat through death given to body since the soul is very much attached to its body. These souls will take re-birth and due to the threat given, some control in their behaviour exists.
You may say that let all these punishments be done in the upper hell so that nobody sees and sympathises the souls. But, some punishments must be seen by the public and the corresponding sins done by these souls are inferred by the wise public. When the punishment is given by the judge in the court, the crime done by the criminal is not demonstrated in the court so that the public should know the details of the crime by visual means. The scripture gives the details of various punishments given to various sins. You can refer the scripture to know the sin committed by the criminal here by seeing the punishment. Even in the court, you know the crime informed through the judgement or can know directly from the constitution and infer the crime committed. You can refer the constitution to know the crime through the details of punishment.
Mostly, the severe sins done on this earth are given punishments here only. The punishment given to a just born baby indicates only the sin done in the previous birth. Some religions do not believe in re-birth. In such case, it is the responsibility of those religions also to give the reason for the punishment given to the just born baby. Either you should say that God is cruel or the new born baby committed some sin in the previous birth. No religion blames God. In such case, you have to accept the reason given by Me. It is not reasonable that you neither give the reason nor accept My reason at least tentatively till you give the reason. The incident of punishment of new born baby is before all our eyes and every religion has responsibility to give the reason in this incident.
