Another Molest by security personnel

A housewife was allegedly molested and her husband thrashed by security personnel in Bishenpur district of Manipur prompting locals to threaten a stir if action is not taken against the errant personnel. more.....

When I write that security forces molests a woman, or that they mete out certain acts of Human rights violation, it doesn't mean that I am supporting the cause that security forces are fighting. I repeat, asking for dignity to live in my own home doesn't mean that I am supporting any cause. It is not zero sum. I am against any acts of Human's Right's intrusions.

When I select only acts of violence and human rights abuse by security personnel, it is only so because they are suppose to be on the side of the innocent citizens who are caught in between. And not treat them with disdain just because they are doing their job. "tell any holocaust survivor, I am just following orders"

Better a hundred criminals go free than punish an innocent one is the Maxim on which our Laws and Constitution have been formulated. Why don't it apply when it is a fight againts militancy. Why do innocent people suffer?

maybe the cause the armed forces are fighting for has become the excuse for them to satiate their carnal and regressive desires. like the cause the insurgents are fighting for has become their excuse for extortions and power trips. in the middle are sandwiched the innocents, moderates, little people with no voices.
