Armed Forced Privilages Act and rights of local citizens.Today, on one side the world is fighting with Corona, on the other side there are many social issues which have been the subject of discussion for a long time, one of them is about the AFSPA law. The need for the Armed Forces Privilege Act (AFSPA) was passed on 11 September 1958 to help the army in the disturbed northeast. When terrorism started to grow in Jammu and Kashmir around 1989, it was also implemented there in 1990.
AFSPA in a particular area is implemented only when the state or central government declares that area a "disturbed area". AFSPA law is imposed only in those areas which are declared as disturbed areas. Only after the implementation of this law, the army or armed forces are sent there. This law helps prevent violence specially in the northeastern states of the country, but many locals oppose this law as it includes the repressive powers given to the armed forces.
What do you think how this law should be properly used and implemented so that both the integrity of India and the rights of citizens are protected. Members please share your opinions.
