Dear Editor,

While Army raping or otherwise harming civilians is not acceptable, I fail to see what makes them such an exception that they need special laws to protect them for heinous crimes. Justice Verma Commission report has done well to suggest that AFSPA cover should be withdrawn, atleast in the cases of rapes. After all, it is common in this country to see cover ups by police and failure to take action. Why wouldn't people up the chain be party to the case if the armed forces were to investigate the follies of their own men?

But there are also other cases where there are cover-ups. We have BJP covering up tribal rapes in Chattisgarh, with Vibha Rao of their women's commission calling them consensual. We have C Manjula in Karnataka Women's Commission who blithely shrugged off the Mangalore molestation. We have a Congress leader arrested in Andamans for raping a minor (didn't even make mainstream headlines) even as the Delhi gangrape outrage was on. A judge is accused of molesting two women he was taking a statement from. And so on. In any of the cases, where is there any sign of anyone higher up having taken action? Such cases too highlight the need for overall reforms. I fail to see why any organization of any kind must not have responsibility heading up the chain if they harbour rapists, molesters, pedophiles and any other criminals too.

—V.K. Sharma,

Gandhinagar, Jammu.
