Prashant Bhushan bats for lifting of AFSPA in J&K

The Hindu Rakshak Sena claimed responsibility for the attack. In a statement, the outfit said that Bhushan was a ‘traitor’ and his comments on withdrawal of the Army from Jammu and Kashmir were ‘anti-national’.

Bhushan had on Sunday batted for the lifting of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in Jammu and Kashmir, saying it gave the Army immunity in cases of human rights violation while causing alienation amongst the people.

“It is very important for us to win the hearts and minds of the people and prevent alienation. For that, the first thing which needs to be done is to remove AFSPA, which gives Army immunity in human rights violations," he said.
