Mushtaq Ahmed's death after being incarcerated in a case filed under the DSA last year may be the most damning indictment of the repressive nature of the law, but he was not the only victim—and he will not be the last either if we don't rescind or at least amend the law to make it pro-people. DSA in its current form must go.
