CNDP welcomes revocation of the in Tripura

On

We, on behalf of the Coalition for Nuclear Disarmament and Peace(CNDP), heartily welcome the Tripura government’s decision to lift the notorious Armed Forces Special Powers Act(AFSPA) which has been used for providing impunity for the armed forces in the Jammu & Kashmir and the North-Eastern states. The brutally violent instances of murder and rape of innocent civilians in these regions of India since the 1950s remain a blot over the self-proclaimed world’s largest democracy. The continued existence of the AFSPA has only fuelled more violence and militarism.
