Submitted by asandil on Tue, 10/27/2020 - 14:51

Law has been really generous for giving us the right of private defense. On one hand, the law suggests that we cannot do any wrong. We cannot kill someone. But on the other hand, the law suggests that if that other person is trying to kill you or if someone is trying to harm you, then whatever you do to defend yourself for that particular act alone, you will not be held guilty. Therefore, any act done so as to protect yourself and you did so as to defend yourself, for that particular act you wont be held guilty and that would be covered under this act.
