‘Now is the time to rethink AFSPA’,

February 2, 2018
Appropos the editorial ‘Now is the time to rethink AFSPA’, first of all the Army Chief has no mandate to go public on a policy matter of the Government. This is a democracy and it is not the military to decide whether AFSPA should continue or not. The fact is that the army is enjoying the benefits and privileges of a military rule wherever AFSPA is applied. It is quite natural that they will be unwilling to give up those benefits. Whatever be the situation, using army for internal law and order is undemocratic. Army is meant for fighting enemies beyond borders and not for fighting against your own people. AFSPA has to be lifted without wasting any more time and this legislation itself has to be repealed.
