    hmmm....curious indeed. you are the first person i know who`s applied stuff we`ve read in history books years ago to the realities of today :rolleyes:
    the sources i`ve read online comparing the two have some blatantly secessionist and racist overtones, which was not pleasant to read at all. hope you are not coming from that angle - incidentally, i do believe AFSPA is alsoa Black law & should be repealed in the Northeast but only wherever the ground situation is conducive todo so.

    I don't about racism in AFSPA. But I know both are martial laws and it gives power to the armed forces to try anyone without trial.

    I also wanted to know is AFSPA applied in Naxal areas even though most of it is forest areas.

    And I also want to now if the Indian opposed Rowlatt act why is the same Congress party supporting AFSPA.

    History is always written by the Victors.

    So if I read about AFSPA from nic it is useless. The GOI or amed forces will never give the real pictures.

    Also if I read about Rowlatt act from nic website their might be some fabrications which GOI changed according to its propaganda.

    AFSPA empowers the Indian army to arrest anyone without any reason. And it has lead to lot of killing s in our NE and Kashmir and false encounters too.

    It appears that you forget to read Section 5 of the Act.

    BTW you need Information or you want to spread your own agenda here ?

    Many N-E states and j&k have 370-a,b,c special status. If they want to revoke AFSPA,then we have to revoke 370 also.
    370 also black law,it doesn't give equal status to all states.
