Title:- The National Security Act of 1980: Time to end the abuses About the book:- Since the early days of British colonial rule, India has lived under a series of draconian preventive detention laws. Currently, the National Security Act of 1980 (NSA) is the broadest and most widely abused of these laws. SAHRDC recognizes that India faces a number of external and domestic threats to its security and that narrowly tailored and ethically applied preventive detention laws can be effective ways to counter such threats. However, preventive detention as it is used and abused under tha National Security Act violates a number of fundamental human rights norms provided under the Indian Constitution and international human rights law. SAHRDC examines the National Security Act, abuses under the Act and makes appropriate recommendations.
