Hello friends,

As we all know elections are approaching and all the political parties are coming up with their respective manifesto. Two days back while scrolling my Google feeds I encountered with a news regarding Indian National Congress' manifesto. It had several promising points. But the two points that drew my attention towards it was the "removal of sedition law" and "abolishment of AFSPA". Sedition law is something that discourages every citizen of India to speak anything against the nation and considers it as a national offence and I believe it as an important law and anyone insulting the nation must be considered as an anti-nationl.  This discourages everyone speaking against the country whoever wants to divide it. We all have rights to criticize the government but these days speaking against the nation in the name of freedom of speech has become a fashion. This necessitates the sedition law as anything spoken against the nation must be considered as a serious offence and must not be tolerated. Now, let's come to the second point AFSPA, we all know it is like an immunity for our armed forces in places like Kashmir. We all are aware of situations prevailing in Kashmir. Removing AFSPA may handicap our soldiers. Scrapping this law may strengthen anti Nationals and weaken our armed forces. Therefore, I appeal Mr. Rahul Gandhi to remove these two points from his party's manifesto.
