Subject - removal of AFSPA - I just saw the debate on the removal of the AFSPA on News X. I am amazed to see the shallow understanding of the whole situation. Why is there AFSPA? Becuase the areas are distrubed? There is distrubed area act? When it gets applied then only AFSPA comes in play. Now the immunity provided to the armed forces. Well it is justified. The armed forces are trained and eqipped to wage wars? An action where hardly an law applies? Are the wars under legal perview? yea ware crimes may be but not the wars? So you have an organisation; armed forces which is as first place being misused to fight terrorists because the state govt have failed to exercise thier control. Now you want to use an organisation which is trained for maximum force. and then bring under the very Police and Judiciary which has collapsed in such areas. How many terrorists have been punished by such systems which in any case has been marginalised by the terrorists? Then how can the legal protection be not provided? well if you want to remove AFSPA please do so? But if the sates fails as they are, then the only option available with the armed forces is declaring Martial Law? Please choose between Martial Law and AFSPA? Choice is yours? I dont think Army will fight insurgency otherwise? In fact army itself is victim of AFSPA. It has lost thousands of soldiers in fights against the terrorists and on top of that thousands of them have been punished for human rights violations? Double punishments? Give the example that how many terrorists have been punished by the state? If they start punishing them then where is the need for the AFSPA GOD Save this country
