I read in newspaper today that administrative reform commission in his reprt submitted to pm has disclosed that after studying on fighting terrorism of various countries we have come to conclusuion that our laws are very weak,in fighting terrorism,in investigation,trial and conviction and as such we have to change our policies drastically but do you think our politicians will learn any lesson from it due to vote bank politics?

Indian law is actually harsher than US & UK law when it comes to "fighting terrorism." Present Indian law (WITHOUT POTA) gives police full power to append, detain & interrogate anyone deemed a suspect and also conduct encounters. In the US & UK, they need the approval of a court & a police commission approval (in the case of encounter) to do the same. And moreover, terrorists don't care what the law of the land is when they strike. No government in India is prepared to REALLY fight terror- which involves going to PoK and conducting special forces operations (covert) there.
