New Terror law for whom?
I still don’t understand why did we require a new Terror law to detain a person for 180 days without producing him in the court. What advantage does it give to our system of justice, if he is going to get freed after those 180 days? If any improvement is required, one should focus on collecting more and more data and point of inputs (camera) so that the quality or amount of evidences against the accused is increased.
The funnier side of this, the law came as a response to the Mumbai Terror Attack. I don’t know how could an internal terror law prevent people from plotting and planning a mass-murder sitting outside India, and then sneaking into India to carry out those plans.
From the past experience, the detained are mostly political soft targets and were released without even being in Court. The percentage of minorities in the list was also very high.
I agree to Amnesty’s points those were published against this new law. It’s going to harm more than it seems.
