The U.N. Special Rapporteur on Extra-judicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions has asked India to repeal the draconian Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act. This is the time India need to abolish the inhuman act against their citizen.

Since 1957, the government granted the army with special and additional powers to tackle the insurgency, however all these powers didn’t make any extra-ordinary changes, but resulted in the rape and killing of innocent people by the Indian Armies. The AFSPA is giving the extra burden to the people’s misery from army, apart from the threat derived from militant insurgency.

The AFSPA should be repealed in the wake of India’s vote against Srilanka, It will be hypocritical to vote against the Srilanka and keep the killing machine (AFSPA) with alive with India.

India should repeal the AFSPA at the earliest
