ARMED FORCES SPECIAL POWERS ACT – PET SCAPEGOAT?
Amitabh Hoskote, Vishakha A Hoskote
Volume: 7 Issue: 3 2017
The Armed Forces Special Powers Act continues to be used by the Indian government in insurgency ridden areas, gaining wide traction in the debate on conflict and its resolution. Civil society condemns the Act for issues relating to Human Rights, and the draconian powers it seemingly bestows on the armed forces. This research paper seeks to examine the debate in the larger context of its legality, its validity in the current scenario, and the artificial divide it creates in civil society discourse.
