Home Minister Amit Shah, in the Lok Sabha today, discussed changes to the country’s new laws, including the Indian Penal Code, the Indian Citizenship Act, and the Indian Evidence Act. During the discussion, he mentioned that the old laws were created to help foreign rulers maintain their dominance. Speaking about the changes in these laws, Home Minister Shah said that Italian Mindset Won’t Understand Indian Laws
He said, “This bill punishes mob lynching with death penalty. Chidambaram kept asking me what about mob lynching. He does not understand BJP and our mentality. Why did you not penalise mob lynching during your rule? If one’s mind is Indian, you will understand the laws. If it is Italian, you won’t.” The three bills reflect the spirit of the Constitution…but those with an Italian mindset will never understand it,”
Home Minister Amit Shah also stated that the definition of terrorism has not been clearly outlined in any law so far. For the first time, the Modi government is set to define terrorism, and there will be no benefit in exploiting its absence. He mentioned that this is not the rule of the British or the Congress but the rule of the BJP and Narendra Modi. No argument will work here to save terrorism.
The Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita Bill, 2023, the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita Bill, 2023, and the Bharatiya Sakshya Bill, 2023 were initially presented in Parliament during the Monsoon Session. Amit Shah later presented the revised versions of the bills during the Winter Session.
