During an interview on gulistan News channel in Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister Amit Shah spoke about the government’s plan and expressed that the central government is considering the possibility of revoking AFSPA in Jammu and Kashmir.

Amit Shah said that BJP and the entire Parliament believe that PoK is an integral part of India. He said that Muslim brothers are also Indians. And the Hindu brothers living in PoK are also Indians and the land which Pakistan has illegally occupied also belongs to India. It is the goal of every Indian and every Kashmiri to get it back. Today Pakistan is surrounded by hunger and poverty and there People also see Kashmir as heaven. It is the promise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to establish democracy in Jammu and Kashmir.

When terrorism increased in Jammu and Kashmir in the 1990s, AFSPA law was implemented here, since then this law is still in force in Jammu and Kashmir.

What is AFSPA

AFSPA “Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act” is a law that provides special powers to the Indian Army, especially for internal security in unexpected situations. AFSPA is invoked in internal peace and terrorism situations, especially in areas like Kashmir, Assam, and Meghalaya, where there is internal instability. The British introduced this Act in response to the Quit India Movement of 1942. The initial development of AFSPA dates back to 1958, when it was applied in view of the need for internal security in Assam.

The implementation of AFSPA reduces support to terrorists and faces many controversies, involving human rights groups and political parties. This also has the effect that the rights of the citizens there may be violated by the contract. No case or legal action can be taken against the security forces unless approved by the Central Government.
