What is national security law
Rasuka i.e. National Security Act-1980 gives power to the government to keep a person in custody for the security of the country. By applying Rasuka, any person can be kept in jail for one year. However the approval of the Advisory Board has to be taken to be kept in jail for more than three months. Rasuka can be imposed based on the threat to the security of the nation and the possibility of deteriorating law and order.
