The Codes of Justice

Prabhupada quotes from manu samhita in the purport , he says a person he murders somebody and he is hanged up materially punished so he is liberated from that sinful activity , what about the karma spiritually because materially he was punished ,no it says here that”o patrha how can a person who knows that the soul is indestructible ,unborn ,eternal ,immutable can kill anyone and cause anyone to kill this is the verse explaining that the body is only killed but soul is indestructible so in the purport Prabhupada says that the violence has its utility how to apply violence rest with the person in the knowledge. although the justice of the peace of awards capital punishment if the person is condemn for murder ,the justice can’t be blamed because he orders violence to another person according to the codes of justice.
