Is the Supreme Court Seeking Revenge or Administer

I belong to the school of thought that believes punishment should be correctional and not destructive. A perfect example of the correctional punishment is what was done with the contempt cases during the election petition hearing. The sentences at that time were clearly correctional. This one goes way beyond the desire to correct and borders on destruction. Taking a leaf from our traditional set up, our elders will, most of the time, go for the correctional and not the destructive, no matter the offense.
