New Delhi: Lawyer Prakash Ambedkar has upheld the NIA court's decision to sentence terrorist Yasin Malik to life imprisonment. He has raised questions on the life sentence to Yasin under UAPA sections. Prakash has said that the NIA court has convicted Yasin Malik under those sections of UAPA, which our law considers to be non-existent. Let us inform that Prakash Ambedkar, the architect of the Constitution, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar's grandson. Prakash is also the head of Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi Party.
Prakash said that Sections 124(1) and 124(A) sedition law is a colonial law, which has been abolished in England by the Lords and the House of Commons. Advocate Prakash Ambedkar told that Parliament has removed sub-section 4 and sub-section 7 in the 44th amendment. So there is no subdivision 4 or subdivision 7 left. When these two sub-clauses are not there in the Constitution and the Prevention Act of 1967 has been set aside by the Parliament. In such a situation, it cannot be enforced by any court, because this law does not exist.
But what about the violence in which so many people lost their lives and Yasin Malik has been blamed for it. Justifying this question, Prakash Ambedkar said that many people have lost their lives due to bomb blasts not only in Kashmir but in other parts of India. Whether these blasts were carried out by Indians or outsiders, it needs to be investigated and the punishment will be decided by the court.
