Promoting Democracy, Upholding Human Rights

NEW YORK, (SANA): The international organization for human rights “human Right Watch” told the Indian government to repeal Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). AFSPA is against the international rights for human being.

Director Human Right Watch Brad Adams in a statement said that there is broad recognition in India that the Armed Forces Special Powers Act should be repealed because it has led to so many abuses, adding that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should overrule the army and keep his promise to abolish this abusive law.

It is worth mentioning here that India is conducting operations in Kashmir and North India according to AFSPA.
