I got hold of a BBC survey on Torture and how people understand it around the world. Actually Time has an article on civil liberties and I read it there.
More importantly, I was shocked to see the statistics on India.
For Indians, (atleast a majority of them), torture is good. I think this very statistic justifies the reason as to why despite various court rulings and laws, torture still exists in India. Ha… the governance in this country is surely going down the drain.
