    Why doesn't she enter the parliament. It seems like logical step. She can sweep the polls in her favour.

    she may have just cause, but better way of protest exists, even Courts can't do much.

    What a hypocrisy! One wouldn't live 12 weeks without food, let alone 12 years. Why does she not lead a movement by stepping outside the house than only staying indoors hooked to a drip. This kind of pansy protests would get crushed or remain unnoticed till the end of days. Above all, this is a non-issue. AFSPA stays for the national interest. Why can't she urge the terror groups to stop their activities? Then AFSPA would become irrelevant. It has been 12 long years, she should have mustered enough courage to do that by now.

    If AFSPA was introduced in NE and J&K in the name of national security,why was it is not introduced in atleast one Naxal affected state?Isn't the naxal threat a national security ?As far as I know naxals kills the most number of people in this nation and no one tries to enact AFSPA in the heartland fearing
    The public out burst and loss of vote banks. I agrees that militancy shouldnot be dealt with kidgloves,but in a democracy there is no place for draconian laws like AfSPA which helps the dirty harries get away unpunished.Instead more civilian friendly laws should be enacted which at the same time should make life a hell for militants and should be friendly with the civilian population in the area.After all living under the fear of gun is not at all a healthy thing. I wonders why no single political party in India is voicing for a better law to be made effect in the militancy affected areas.

    Even Gandhi was not allowed to fast longer than a few weeks lest he died. The British Viceroys were all scared of being labelled Pontius Pilate in their posterity had Gandhi died on their watch. And the descendants of Gandhi do not care.

    AFSPA is the only legal cover for the Army to operate once the Police and CPMFs have all failed. Some foreign funded NGOs are most keen to disable our last line of defense. Do you want the army to operate outside a legal framework. The seperatists trying to break this country are getting highly militarised and weaponised( courtsey Pak and China)If they could be tackled by Police methods , the army wouldnt have to called in .
